  • Would “down” and “up” exist in a universe without gravity?

    They say “down” is towards the center of the Earth or the direction gravity is pulling you. So what if the universe had zero gravity and was 5ft in length, 5ft in width, and 20ft in height. Would there be no “down” or “up” in that vertical rectangular universe?

Fun fact, 10% of all sheep are homosexual or bisexual; but again, we don't know where it stems from.

    Best answer: you ARE correct. Space does NOT have an "up or "down." That is true. When YOU are the REFERENCE point, the origin point of YOUR OWN INDIVIDUAL COORDINATE system., left and right are not really interchangeable either. You are doing it again, starting off with a FALSE PREMISE , that is NOT TRUE. Your BRAIN isn't symmetrical. The structure of your brain is different on YOUR right than tn the structure of your brain on YOUR LEFT side. Wheat is "up' and 'down' FOR YOU may be completely DIFFERENT "up' and down' for ANOTHER person who is using THEIR location AND THEMSELVES as as the origin point of THEIR personal coordinate system.


    For the sake of being able TO COMMUNICATE with each other. Up is AWAY from the surface of celestial body" and "down" is TOWARD the surface of celestial body.. BUT space has NO INHERENT "absolute" "up" or "down".

    You ARE CORRECT. Space has NO "up" or "down". You HAVE TO STATE WHAT coordinate system you are using.Yes, coordinate systems ARE abstract, human made concepts. State lines are NOT painted on the ground.on Earth

    YOUR left and right are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from MY left or right AND up and down.

    Best answer: Not only could earth be hit by Gamma ray bursts from supernovae, or shot out from the poles of quasars (black holes with accretion disks) or shot out from the poles of pulsars, earth is constantly bombarded by gamma radiation from the sun, especially if there is a coronal mass ejection (CME). The earth's magnetic field protects the earth by trapping subatomic particles from the solar wind (and from CMEs from flares) in what is called the Van Allen Radiation Belt. However, gamma radiation is not affected by the earth's magnetic field. Another serious concern is that flipping of the magnetic field of the earth (an event that seems to be happening now, and has happened many times in history). That is, the north and south poles would switch places. This was first observed in a lava flow in the Owens Valley, California, in which the alignment of the then molten rock changed 180 degrees while more lava was flowing. As the poles flip, the magnetic field, at some time, will be gone, and no longer blocking subatomic particles from the sun.

    Lead shielding, or water, or dirt (over your head if you are in a cave) could block gamma radiation. I suppose, that to some extent, an aluminum foil hat would suffice.
