Each of these moons are 1 km in diameter, Charon is the biggest. Scientists are calling Pluto a “Dwarf” but size isn’t everything because great things come in small packages. It is not just size because another factor of being classified as a dwarf planet would be the planet has to clear its neighborhood. With this classification Neptune would also have to be classified as a dwarf planet. Scientists proposed a new “geophysical definition”, “A planet is a sub-stellar mass body that has never undergone nuclear fusion and that has sufficient
THE SENTINEL AND 2001:A SPACE ODYSSEY Have you ever wondered the existence of qualified creatures from outer space? If your answer is “Exactly!”, here are the masterpieces of the science fiction stories referring to genius aliens: “The Sentinel” and “2001: A Space Odyssey”. “The Sentinel” is a story written by British writer Arthur C. Clarke in 1948. The story is about an astrogeologist’ s discovery of a construction beyond mankind on the surface of the moon. The other piece of art, “2001: A Space Odyssey” is the science fiction movie by Stanley Kubrick.
While there may be one billion trillion stars within the known universe, the number of habitable planets such as Earth, in the Milky Way Galaxy, pales in comparison at a mere forty billion. While not all are completely safe to colonize in the near future, it still bears a shocking revelation to the fortune humans have been blessed with. With knowledge such as this available to the common civilian, it is astonishing how the human race has treated the poor, ever-decaying planet we inhabit. In due time, it will be vital to the success of the human race to leave the once beloved planet for dead and move on. I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet...Although the chance of a disaster to planet
It’s a matter of when!” I believe that we will be able to go and start space colonies in the next decade. If we start a space colony I think the most problematic thing will be the cost but if more people go then I will cost less and less. In source 2, they estimate the cost to be $500,000. Now that might seem like a lot but when you think about it it’s not because, they are sending people INTO space and OUT of earth. And there is more space in well… space!
While neither of these countries are officially declared metric, they use this as their majority. Currently Burma is considering going metric and have started making plans, meaning in the near future we may be the only country left still using the Imperial system. A lot of the people living in Burma and Liberia are political refugees from countries that already use the metric system. So the majority of the people living in these countries are already using the metric system. The reason these two countries have not declared metric is because they are developing countries with bigger issues.
The big bang was an enormous blast of energy throughout the universe, which formed all things instead the universe. Using Thomas’ logic of causes and effects in world, this massive explosion could have produced the first effects in the world since science does not have a theory to what caused the big bang, Thomas would state, whatever the cause of the big bang is an uncaused cause. This would be considered God, which God’s only effect could be the big bang theory in which that would create other effects and eventually over time into the world we
Gloria Skurzynski’s background to writing “Nethergrave” was because of science fiction. Gloria says, “In fantasy, the cause is magic. In science fiction, the role of magic is replaced by advanced technology.” Ray Bradbury’s background to writing “A Sound of Thunder” was time travel. When H.G Wells published “The Time Machine” it had imagination. Ray says, “Wells wrote his now-famous book, the idea of time travel – to both the past and future – has captured the popular imagination.” In “Nethergrave” there is a boy named Jeremy who gets picked on at school, and he doesn’t have any other friends than the three people he met online.
Just none in the space exploration industrie. With more money going to the ocean exploration and technology advancements the human race could become a more advanced civilization than it currently is. Also the military could use the money for better equipment. They could research more advanced weapons to protect the country borders. The money could also go into creating a machine the can cleanse the pollution and it could work on some advanced solar power panels.
Rather than simplifying the truth and having him fly in a rocket pointed at Mars, arriving at after a much shorter amount of time than the 8 months it actually took, the movie uses what is known about the Hohmann transfer to accurately portray the travel. The main issue with pointing straight at Mars and launching, is that by the time spacecraft arrives, Mars will have completely changed its location in space. This is because Mars, like every other planet, orbits around the sun and this has a constantly changing location. While the Hohmann transfer takes much longer than flying straight to Mars would (if it were theoretically possible) it is actually the quickest way to Mars, because it is set up so that the launch is around the orbital cycle of Mars where it will be the closest to Earth. The other accuracy the movie portrays is the story behind the trouble with bringing Watney back from Mars, or at least supplying him with food.
The money spent on the space race was not a legitimate use of government funds because the money could have gone to more relevant causes, it is extremely dangerous, and exploration beyond earth is unnecessary until we can first solve problems on earth. This money could have gone to more relevant causes. NASA spent twenty three billion dollars on manned programs from 1961 to 1969(Granath). This money could have gone to much better causes such as education and healthcare. Many communities in the US need more funds for education that NASA is instead using for space exploration.
