I chose Saturn because it was a planet that interested me. Since I was small, I was fascinated in space. When I saw the different planets in the solar system, I was very into Saturn. It looked different, it had a ring around the planet. Back then, I did not know what the ring was, but I thought it was very different from others.
According to space.com, “Astronomy is the study of the sun, moon, stars, planets, comets, gas, galaxies, gas, dust, and other non-Earthly bodies and phenomena. Astronomers study the stars and other things that are in space. There are two main types of astronomers, the observational astronomers who focus on the study of stars, planets, and galaxies, the second is theoretical astronomers who model and analyze how systems like stars and galaxies may have evolved. There are also seven other types of astronomers. One type is planetary astronomers they focus on the growth, evolution, and death of planets, stellar astronomers who study the stars, solar astronomers study our sun, galactic astronomers study the Milky Way there is another type of astronomer within this and they are called extragalactic astronomers who look outside of the Milky Way to see how these collections of stars form, change and die, cosmologists study the universe how it was created what it was like in the past compared to now, astrometry is the measurement of the sun, moon and planets, and early astronomers who noticed patterns in the sky and attempted to organize them in order to track and predict their
The movie even pays tongue-in-cheek homage to the tons of documentary films that chronicle the lives of the cuddly penguins [March of the Penguins] with a documentary sequence voiced over by visionary director Werner Herzog. At points towards the film’s finale it begins to feel robotic and repetitive, but that does not discount the significant work made in the animation department. This is a stunningly beautiful film with little touches that really encourage you to tip your hat at everyone involved. I’m not an advocate of the 3D revolution but I was so taken in by the details of the film’s habitat that after a while it didn’t bother me profusely.
If Only We Had Taller Been and All Summer In a Day by Ray Bradbury are similar and different in a variety of ways. Exploration is happening all the time with new planets being discovered, more of the ocean being uncovered and even new technologies we have never seen before are being revealed. A theme of All Summer In a Day and If Only We Had Taller Been could be exploration. Both passages deal with this similarly and differently.
Introduction: In this lab, we measured the angular velocity of the sun (how fast the sun rotates on its axis) to find the time it takes for the sun to make a complete orbit. We did this by printing two images of the sun that are 7 days apart from NASA’s SOHO database to observe and measure one sunspot (the same sunspot in different locations on both images). We looked at sunspots because its dark (due to magnetic activity and heat transfer) and easy to identify since there are few spots from a faraway perspective. were able to solve for the time period it takes for the sun to rotate on its axis using the following formulas: θ=sin〖x/(R ')〗 where R’ is the radius of the circle the sunspot orbits, 〖θ=sin〗〖x/R_sun 〗 , where R_sun is the radius
Aristotle was an ancient Greek thinker who had many intriguing ideas of the world and everything around us. Being born in 384 BC, he was placed in a time period where there was much dispute over what the true physical qualities of the earth were. Aristotle asserted that the world is both a spherical and immobile object. In support of his claim that the earth is spherical, he cited numerous observational claims and assumptions. Some of his observational claims included subjects relating to the location of elephants, the shadow of lunar eclipses, the way bodies fall, and how stars are seen from different locations.
It is a tale of day and night, of Sun and the Moon. Time had just begun, Artemis, the moon was fascinated by his changing phases. He was then known as The Waxing Crescent. Therefore he knew nothing of what was coming for him. He had started his orbit around the young Earth and he loved how the rays of light shone on him, increasing their intensity day by day.
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.
The geocentric theory is the belief that the Universe revolved around the Earth. This is what many people believed at the time because that was all that could be seen with the naked eye: “Ptolemy believed that the Earth was at the center of the Universe and that the Sun, Moon, planets and stars went round the Earth
Now, for the non-believers, including me, there are many facts I have dug up so let’s start with this one. One thing I found is that if Neil Armstrong was really the first person to land on the moon, then who filmed him getting off the lander from outside the lander? If he were to be filmed, I would expect it to be from the inside the lander. Next, It was said that the astronauts that went to the moon trained for the gravity for the moon in a fake environment, so could the whole have been filmed from that very place?
While taking English 090, I have learned to overcome this fear. Getting feedback from others during workshop days was very useful because I received tips on how to make changes to your paper to make it stronger. This gave me the opportunity to practice my critical reading/thinking skills by actively reading our partners papers. This also gave us the freedom to leave remarks in the margins of others’ essay to not only help them, but help ourselves learn. While writing the unit 3 paper, I got to practice and meet the course objective of actively reading.
MARTIAN SUN DOOR FOUND ON OUR BELOVED STAR A photo taken by NASA 'S SOHO satellite has martian researchers freaking out. They found what appears to be an enormous door opening up in the sun. Of course, this can only be an entrance way for aliens to come and go as they please. But how can that be?
