The author talks about what happens when there is not visible light in your environment when he says, “In the end, when there is nothing left to see, the eye and the brain invent lights.” This quote shows us that the brain and eyes cannot stand to not look at anything. In completely dark circumstances, our brains can create entoptic auroras that can seem real. Entoptic auroras are a phenomena that is produced when our brain creates colorful patterns and designs that we can see. I personally have seen these displays. They are easiest to see on a moonless night in an enclosed room.
This finding of the impact crater is very important because that implies the rocks at the rim of crater provide give scientists more information about the origin of the moon, the moon in the ancient time. Comparing the number of impact craters on the Earth to the Moon and other terrestrial worlds, we could say that it is very rare. There are many reasons that could explain why other planets will be more impact craters than the Earth, for example, Earth’s atmosphere, geological activity, and human activities could be responsible to the phenomenon of lost impact craters on the Earth. First, the Earth’s atmosphere, a lot of smaller meteorite or comet cannot get through Earth’s atmosphere. They burn up after entering the Earth’s atmosphere, thus a lot of them did not make
The speaker writes, “I have outwalked the furthest city light,” showing that he or she has transcended the limits of a normal person’s misfortune and instead exposed himself to complete and utter desperation (3). Another example comes during the description of the “luminary clock against the sky,” presumed to be the moon (12). By shedding light on the blackest nights, the moon serves as a natural combatant against darkness. Therefore, the speaker, hoping for some sort of
Earth in its greatness with green trees, blue, water, white snow, sweltering deserts, frozen tundras, and oceans of possibilities: space has its massive rocks that may have some ice, the distant slim possibility of life, and the infinite expanses of nothing. People have looked up at the stars in wonder for years hoping to travel that far someday. In the past, there were races; to orbit, then a race to the moon, now they look to mars which is a dusty desert with solid ice at the poles. Interplanetary travel (travel between planets) comes next with the so called race for Mars. With the notion of interplanetary travel comes the argument of for or against.
Besides this countless theory would take from the dinosaur period to the 20th century. This theory not only revolves around butterflies but it revolves around way more than that. “The butterfly effect applies to systems beyond weather; indeed, any complicated system may be vulnerable to seemingly small factors. For example, the travel of asteroids in the solar system can be difficult to predict. This is because the paths of asteroids can be affected by many different gravitational pulls throughout the solar system, including the gravity of the sun, of planets, of moons, and even other asteroids.The butterfly effect comes from the chaos theory to describe how a small change or mistake can create a different outcome.”(wiseGeek).
Furthermore the metaphor, “your gaze is always a radius. The circumference is ever great” also alludes to the idea that Pi is stranded out in the ocean where his gaze looks out to see nothing just the end of a limitless horizon. The imagery given here from this metaphor shows the reader just how vast and empty the ocean is and how Pi had to deal with the loneliness of it all for 227 days. Lastly, the metaphor, “The moon distresses you by silently reminding you of your solitude; you open your eyes wide to escape your loneliness” draws a similarity between Pi and the moon. Both Pi and the moon are surrounded by a vast mass of emptiness with a lot of space around them.
When Mark finds out he is alone he first realizes that they don 't know he 's alive otherwise they wouldn 't have left him on Mars, alone. Another fact is, he has a hole in his stomach that is bleeding non-stop. In most space movies the person usually just starts floating in space and they are with the rest of their crew. Mark 's situation is way more complex. He doesn 't have any

The moon grew bigger and starts to roll all over in Vector’s ship hurting him and freeing the girls. Later, the girls see Gru outside of the ship asking the girls to jump to him. Edith and Agnes made it but as Margo was about to jump, Vector caught her. The moon rolls over again and knocks Vector down, and Margo grabs onto Gru’s grappling hook. Gru rescued Margo with the help of the minions and the rapidly-expanding moon wrecks Vector's controls, causing his ship to carry it back to
Humanity has always been driven to explore the unknown. Understanding every detail of the puzzling mess of stars above would be of great benefit to our future. It’s appalling when you come to realise how blind we are regarding knowledge of space. As a species, we haven’t put our all into space projects, consequently resulting in not having a proper understanding of what lies beyond our planet. Sure, we have the basic outline of what’s within the milky way, but there is a whole galaxy of possibilities out there we have yet to grasp.
"*Everything you do in life will be insignificant*. *But it is very important that you do it*. *Because... No one else would*." - Mohandas Gandhi I wake up dazed looking at the streamed bleak space-grey eyes, staring back into me, forgetting every word they 've ever said, their faces buried in sadness, only to be smothered in a window of blinding light. Moments pass, I turn listening to the dark hearts beat trembling the ground beneath me, crashing against the Shores of the Forgotten, standing on the hills of this ancient cage, looking for an exit- endless rows of articularly made columns, weathered but resilient.
Arzabe says that the story behind this piece is that it shows a scene taking place 1000 years in the future on a fictitious Mars colony; humanity is still subject to the same problems it is now, and the very rich are able to escape these problems by flying off to Jupiter in their spaceships (Oakland Museum of California). It shows the discontent that caused the Occupy movement to become a rallying cry. If this is the premise, then the buildings in the left-hand side of the painting and the images of people within them represent those who get left behind when the rich flee their
Most of these topics are revolve around astronomy, which makes sense considering that this book almost entirely takes place in outer space. One of the most thoroughly explored topics within this book was zero gravity, also known as null gravity. The first time Ender is in null gravity, he breaks a bully’s arm by mistake when attempting to defend himself. In the book, this is explained as, “He hadn’t realized that null gravity magnified the effects of even a child’s movements.” (Card, 3rd) Along with that, in the special battlerooms, many interesting concepts of null gravity are also explored, such as: having to calculate the angles at which objects will bounce off the walls, or being able have an object rotate around another at high speeds if the two objects are connected to each other by rope and the large object is stationary. When a group of older boys are attacking Ender friends, it is also mentioned that when anyone attempted to throw a punch, they would just fly backwards, making it extremely ineffective.
