How Big Is Our Universe-Mathematical Analogies by Dr. Anwar Hamdi is a considerably well-researched book on the proportionalities which exist in our Solar System in relation to the Earth. There are fascinating facts in the presentation generally not well known by the general public.

For instance, on Venus a day is longer than an earth year. The largest volcano in our solar system is believed to be on Mars. The top of the Martian volcano is 3 times the size of Mount Everest. The base is approximately 370 miles wide. Since Mars has the largest volcano in our solar system, there could be opportunities to build geothermal energy sites for the Martian cities of the future.

Jupiter is a huge planet in comparison to the Earth. Even though Jupiter is comprised of helium and hydrogen gas, it outweighs our planet Earth by three hundred fifteen times.

The size of Earth compared to the Sun is like comparing a mere lentil to a huge melon. Our Sun is about 5,000 million years old. In star years, this is about the age of a young teenager. One Sun year is equal to two hundred million earth years. The energy liberated by the Sun equals 380 million, million, million, million watts per second. Inside the Sun, temperatures reach 15 million degrees Celsius. The surface of the Sun is 6,000 degrees Celsius.

In our galaxy, there are at least one hundred million black holes with stars collapsing. Black holes are stars in the final stages of life. In a black hole, the laws of Physics as we understand them become altered. The new laws are a complete mystery to human knowledge or imagination. A hypothesis could be that stars implode to a much smaller size with greater density and more tightly packed crystalline structures. In the galaxy M87, there is a black hole with a mass 3,500 million times the mass of our own Sun. Scientists estimate that there are 100 million galaxies in our Universe.

Behind the Universe, there are many questions like the governing force which unites all matter. What lies beyond the Universe and at its boundaries? A hypothesis could be that everything is contained in a vacuum with a huge elastic boundary that expands and contracts both outward and inward dependent upon outward bursts of energy and inward implosions.

How Big Is Our Universe-Mathematical Analogies is a fascinating book with plenty of room for discussion between and among scientists everywhere. Many of the statements are made from carefully crafted mathematical conjectures and computations. The facts contained could be debated for centuries to come. There may be no firm answers to survive the scientific method of inquiry in certain cases.

About Dr Joseph S Maresca

I've taught approx. 34 sections of collegiate courses including computer applications, college algebra, collegiate statistics, law, accounting, finance and economics. The experience includes service as a Board Director on the CPA Journal and Editor of the CPA Candidates Inc. Newsletter. In college, I worked as a statistics lab assistant. Manhattan College awarded a BS in an allied area of operations research. The program included courses in calculus, ordinary differential equations, probability, statistical inference, linear algebra , the more advanced operations research, price analysis and econometrics. Membership in the Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society was granted together with the degree. My experience includes both private account and industry. In addition, I've worked extensively in the Examinations Division of the AICPA from time to time. Recently, I passed the Engineering in Training Exam which consisted of 9 hours of examination in chemistry, physics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability/ statistics, fluids, electronics, materials science/structure of matter, mechanics, statics, thermodynamics, computer science, dynamics and a host of minor subject areas like engineering economics. A very small percentage of engineers actually take and pass the EIT exam. The number has hovered at circa 5%. Several decades ago, I passed the CPA examination and obtained another license in Computer Information Systems Auditing. A CISA must have knowledge in the areas of data center review, systems applications, the operating system of the computer, disaster recovery, contingency planning, developmental systems, the standards which govern facility reviews and a host of other areas. An MBA in Accounting with an Advanced Professional Certificate in Computer Applications/ Information Systems , an Advanced Professional Certificate in Finance and an Advanced Professional Certificate in Organizational Design were earned at New York University-Graduate School of Business (Stern ). In December of 2005, an earned PhD in Accounting was granted by the Ross College. The program entrance requires a previous Masters Degree for admittance together with a host of other criteria. The REGISTRAR of Ross College contact is: Tel . US 202-318-4454 FAX [records for Dr. Joseph S. Maresca Box 646 Bronxville NY 10708-3602] The clinical experience included the teaching of approximately 34 sections of college accounting, economics, statistics, college algebra, law, thesis project coursework and the professional grading of approx. 50,000 CPA examination essays with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Additionally, membership is held in the Sigma Beta Delta International Honor Society chartered in 1994. Significant writings include over 10 copyrights in the name of the author (Joseph S. Maresca) and a patent in the earthquake sciences.
