Comet Filter

Hi all,

Lumicon make a comet filter to help one "see the gaseous tail to its full extent'

Have you come across these?

How can gravity over power the strong and weak nuclear forces?

When black holes or neutron stars are formed, am i right in thinking the elecrons are forced into the nucleus? How is this possible, I was thinking the more mass an object had would mean the number of particles it contained would also increase- would the nuclear forces not increase too and resist the gravity as more and more particles were added?

It hurts to be a curious layperson!!! HELP!

cheers guys!

could you see stars if you were standing on the moon?

Sorry if this is really obvious and/or been asked too many times but........ Is it possible to see the stars whilst standing on the illuminated surface of the moon?....I thought as we are looking at sunlight bouncing off it that it must be daytime on the surface and too bright to see the much dimmer stars? Would it mean you cant see any stars at all unless you were in a position that was shaded ...

Planck Time And Planck Era

Have they made any headway on the planck time 10- 43 after the bang bang and are they any closer to bringing gravity into the fold to explain this.

Absolute Zero - Why?

Why is there an absolute zero and how do we know it's accurate? Is there a maximum temperature limit and if not why not?

Please keep solutions as simple as possible, thanks!
