Monsters that live under the bed are not real, but the Loch Ness Monster might be? The Scottish water monster known as Nessie has been catching attention for thousands of years. The myth of Nessie has attracted tourist to her home, in hope of catching a glimpse of the famous creature. In fact, the Loch Ness Monster is so popular that it is one of the top thirty believed myths in Great Britain. The people who are attracted to this water monster are not always tourists, many scientists have spent years in Loch Ness trying to prove the creature; they have never found any evidence of the creature. Although many people believe that the Loch Ness Monster is real, it can be shown that the creature is in fact imaginary, through scientific evidence in relation to the marine life found in Loch Ness and statements from people who have photographed Nessie.
Yellowstone National Park, established March 1, 1862, by U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant, was and still is the United States’ largest national park. Yellowstone is located mostly in Wyoming with parts of it lying in Idaho and Montana. Popular geological attractions in Yellowstone include thousands of geysers, hot springs, bubbling mud pots, and waterfalls. Yellowstone is home to many varieties of wildlife including the endangered grizzly bear, gray wolf, wolverine, and bald eagle. Yellowstone is home to many plant species including plants that depend on the park’s thermal features. Over time parts of the park have been destroyed by fires and earthquakes, but Yellowstone National Park, its plants, animals and geological features survive and
The making of film, or the concept of it, has been around since the beginning of the 18th century. The lens of the camera has captured some of the most beautiful things, but also the most prejudice. Stereotypes of races, ethnicities, and gender have always been around but were widely considered acceptable in films of that era. Almost as long as there have been people filming, there have been people fighting for equality to be presented on the big screen. Danez Smith is one of these modern fighters in his free verse poem “Dinosaurs in the Hood.” As Smith uses his words to create a poetic trailer for this stereotype-free movie, he tells the story of a young African American boy. Rather than being focused on his color, he focuses on his heroic actions when fighting wandering dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs are a group of reptiles that became extinct 65 million years ago. Over the course of the 4 million years we have been living, scientists have observed our world. Scientists have taken scientific facts combined with the bodies of many Dinosaurs to help come up with theories about extinction. As scientists found more dinosaurs they wondered how dinosaurs
Distinguished for his accuracy and precision, English scientist Henry Cavendish is one of the most influential experimental and theoretical chemist and physicist of the eighteenth century and has had a lasting impact on science today. Although born in Nice, France, Cavendish lived, and later died, in Great Britain, where he attended Cambridge, but left without a degree. Instead, he opted to conduct research in his father’s Lord Charles Cavendish laboratory, where he made most of his notable discoveries, although much of it went unpublished due to his shy personality, which has led many historians to believe that he had Aspergers (Kaufmann, 2008). However, his achievements in several areas of research, including chemistry, optics, electricity, physics, and mathematics, was later published posthumously by James Maxwell. Of these, the three that have a lasting impact on modern science is his discovery and detailed
The Dark Lady of DNA is the title of the biography of a young woman scientist whose research was needed by scientists Francis Crick and James Watson for the elucidation of the DNA molecule structure. Franklin’s contribution to the structure of the DNA molecule almost remained obscure even though profound implications for modern medicine were made by the discovery.
But Franklin persisted on the DNA project. J. D. Bernal called her X-ray photographs of DNA, "the most beautiful X-ray photographs of any substance ever taken." Between 1951 and 1953 Rosalind Franklin came very close to solving the DNA structure. She was beaten to publication by Crick and Watson in part because of the friction between Wilkins and herself. At one point, Wilkins showed Watson one of Franklin 's crystallographic portraits of DNA. When he saw the picture, the solution became apparent to him, and the results went into an article in Nature almost immediately. Franklin 's work did appear as a supporting article in the same issue of
There are many movies with scientific inaccuracies, but the movie Jurassic Park stood out the most. Jurassic Park has many different kind of inaccuracies and some are just small and some are major. The scientific inaccuracies I picked out to explain are the Velociraptor Inaccuracies, Tyrannosaurus Rex Inaccuracies, Dilophosaurus Inaccuracies, Brachiosaur Inaccuracies, Fossil Excavation Inaccuracies, and the Dino- DNA Inaccuracies. Sometimes it can be hard to find scientific inaccuracies and then sometimes I could be difficult. Just depends on how well you pay attention to the movie and how well you know about the objects in the movie.
These were Atomic physicists (OI ). For example, Robert Boyle suggested that the smallest chemical elements were the simplest forms of matter (Doc. 1). Also, ancient, greek philosophers Leucippus and Democritus were the first to discover atoms. Many others were devoted to the study of atoms, and gave many ideas of what atoms were. Also, due to the study of atoms, a scientist named Henri Becquerel stumbled upon radioactivity. Dmitri Mendeleyev brandished a new way to organize the Periodic Table. Therefore, the study of atoms is what brought many things that help us
The Piltdown Man was a paleoanthropological hoax in which bone pieces were exhibited as the fossilized remains of a formerly obscure early human. These pieces comprised of parts of a skull and jawbone, said to have been gathered in 1912 from a rock pit at Piltdown, East Sussex, England.
However it did excited some and inspired further research at the nature of DNA. Such as the relative composition or bases that contain DNA, also X-ray studies and its structure. Francis Crick and James Watson Were in England in 1953 when they discovered DNA contained a two of a kind sequences of complementary bases. Encodes in genes are ordered by DNA.
I chose to research fossils and what they are. In the book Understanding Fossils there is many different examples of what a fossil is and what the importance of it is. Basically fossils are remains of life on earth. Some fossils can date back millions of years ago. According to the reading there are two different types of fossils. There are body fossils and trace fossils. Each of them are important to the discovery of ancient life and are typically found in rocks and sediment. Body Fossils are when the organism that died literally turned itself into a fossil. This can happen when they are buried and naturally and preserved for after years when they are discovered. Another example of a body fossil is a human body turned into a mummy or an actual
Being apart of history is the greatest feeling in the world. Knowing that our ancestors can be trace all the way back to the Neanderthals would be absolutely incredible. We’ve come along way since then when it comes to appearance, cultures, and stereotyping. In this paper I will be addressing how I feel about the possibility of having Neanderthals as a part of our ancestry. Also how I might relate the Neanderthal debate to stereotyping or racism in contemporary society.
Kakadu national park, located in the Northern Territory in Australia, is a living cultural landscape with exceptional natural and cultural values. (UNESCO, 2015), It was listed on the UNESCO world heritage site in 2007. It is recognised for its cultural and natural elements. The people, land formations, flora and fauna, and most incredible physical attributes are what create the beautiful park.
This article stood out to me because I used to want to be a Paleontologist and I am also a big fan of the Jurassic Park movies. This article takes a look at the Velociraptor and the genetic makeup as well as phenotypes that it displays. A recent discovery showed that the real Velociraptor was a lapdog-sized predator covered in feathers. In Jurassic park the velociraptors are shown as raptors that are bigger than humans and have a rough scaly skin. If you look at the arm bones of Velociraptor you can see a row of bumps, identical in size and shape to the quill knobs of living birds: the anchor points for big wing feathers...” These are very similar structures found on both birds. It is not for certain what these feathers would have looked
