The velocities of the universum.

The Universum is always on move. Nothing is static, what refers the same way to the tiniest particles, the matery is constructed of, and the super-hugh cosmic spheres, which are moving on their orbits. Consequently, for everything is on move, everything in the Universum should have certain velocity.

For the smaller and less-weighing bodies is much easier to achieve the velocity and the ‘speed limit’ of the matery’s subatomic particle, such as the proton (which on its part is built up of the 3 another sub-particles, called quarks) is defined by the basic rules of the physics only, our knowledge of which is still very weak and is continously changing. Last year the media were packed with informations about the inauguration of experiments with use of the largest accelerator of the elementary particles in CERN near Geneva. The main reason of those experiments with the largest machine, constructed by the humanity ever, and called the LHC (Large Hadrons Collider) is to expand our knowledge about the matery by coliding of the two beams of the protons, each with the opposite spin, being accelerated to the velocity near to the one of the light, which is 299,792,458 meters per second (1,079,252,848.8 km/h) and which is the maximum speed possible in the Universum, according to our present knowledge. The energy of such a collision should be smilar to the one, present at the beginning of the material world, the Big Bang, and allow the scientists to discover the last missing particle of the matery’s model, without which this model is incomplete. As for now, the speed of light is the ultimate speed possible in the material world, however this rule can be overthrown by the new discoveries after the LHC experiments.

The same, new conclusions can be also made regarding the velocities in macro-scale. As for now, there are 3 practical cosmic (space) velocites, and 2 theoretical ones. Although, according the measurments made by NASA’s Hubble...
