This science fair project is a mechanical catapult that will be electrically modified to pull back on its own. The goal of this project is to see how far an eraser cap will launch with two different forces that pull the catapult arm forward very fast. From this, we will see if either a bungee cord, or fifty to one-hundred rubber bands has more elasticity. One real-world situation we would want more elasticity for is holding things together, or hooking things together. In this project, recording of the control and data trials will be included into a bar graph, as an average.
Their planet has a shape of a man working with a hammer on it. It reminds me of our moon, how we have a shape of a man in the moon. They are into saving our lives and being reborn. They have something to do with the Anunnaki. They still use flying carriages; they use horses and wagons still.
Artificial intelligence can perform tasks requiring intelligent behaviour... [they are] focused on providing solutions to real life problems.” The science fiction genre has conventions, some of which are relevant to Ex Machina, such as the setting, the narrative convention of overcoming an obstacle and the Frankenstein complex . Set in Nathan’s home Ex Machina (which is his research lab as well), is the equivalent of a spaceship even though it doesn’t look like a spaceship it represents the same thing as it is far away from normal civilisation. It gives a different scene to the present, the sci-fi genre does this to “allow viewers to see the narrative from a more neutral perspective.” Ex Machina also places the unfamiliar (Ava) in context to the familiar, (which is the current period of time) along with Caleb as a normal human to present a juxtaposition of how the two ‘different’
The crew leaves him behind after presuming him dead, and take the MAV (Mars Ascent Vehicle) with them. As author Andy Weir describes Mark Watney’s epic fight for survival, some important themes that pop up very frequently are fearfulness, perseverance, and interplanetary isolation. Andy Weir, an extraordinary author and programmer, sure knows how to include elements such as suspense and sarcasm in his books very efficiently. The writer of the Martian has led a very interesting life, from 1972 to
In order to create this power source, the scientists fire up this machine that accidentally create this portals to other dimensions, and as a result, the monster in Cloverfield is able to transport onto the Earth and wreak havoc on New York City. Although these movies are connected in their storyline, they also have many differences. These differences can be spotted by the way the movie is shot, the actors, and the conflict. Both movies were produced by J.J. Abrams. Abrams has also produced movies like the newest Star Wars trilogy and the new Star Trek trilogy.
As the step rocket burned out and fell off in the sky, the firework would continue going much farther than it would have normally gone. This technology is still used in rockets today, and is in part responsible for our vast improvement in rocket technology. According to nasa.gov, in the 17th century, Isaac newton created three laws of motion. These collectively explained how rockets could move in space, and how they could one day be used for space
Sections 1.21 through 1.29 of Lucian’s True Histories depict the sociology of the Moonmen and the narrator and his crew’s return the earth. One discourse particle used with relative frequency in these sections is γάρ. The particle’s connection to conveying information either through its ability to clarify a cause or relay additional information, explains its many occurrences in these sections. In the sections 1.21-1.29, Lucian generally uses the particle γάρ to mark the cause of a fact which he has previously stated. As is common for this use of γάρ, he begins by relating a piece of information and then expanding on its cause (Denniston, 58.)
Mickey Ngobeni Research Question: Is the movie ‘Gravity’, according to Newton’s laws and physics in general, accurate? Introduction: ‘Gravity’ is a sci-fi, techno-thriller movie that has its plot’s setting based in space. Astronauts (main characters: Sandra Bullock as ‘Dr. Ryan Stone’ and George Clooney as ‘Matt Kolwaski’) are sent into space, yet encounter a series of events, most of which is susceptible to occur in outer space (Foogray, 2015). Questions have risen as to how accurate the movie is according to physics and Newton’s law, and many have been answered.
Astronomers have identified and cataloged numerous asteroids in close proximity to the earth’s orbit that have the potential of causing a catastrophe to our planet. William Burrows an American scientist, author, and journalist certifies that “ Since they [astronomers] do not doubt that several [asteroids] are headed in our direction, advanced knowledge could make it possible to destroy or deflect an approaching asteroid or comet.” (Burrows, 2003). With an objective of avoiding an impending doom, the NEO (Near Earth Objects) program coordinates NASA-sponsored efforts with the astronomical community in their goal of detecting and tracking these asteroids, in which some have been identified as PHA’s (Potentially hazardous Asteroids). Let us not forget that in 1908, an asteroid was reported to have
This is evident even today when his laws determine the outcome of a space station being launched into planetary orbit. Though Einstein’s theory of relativity has been responsible for serious scientific and technological advancement, Einstein initially proposed his theories from his own thought experiments, considering previous theories and reaching contradictions or abnormalities. An example of this is, “what would happen here on Earth, if the sun suddenly disappeared?”. If Earth broke out of it’s gravitational orbit, and took a different trajectory, before the sun’s rays could reach the observers on Earth (8 minutes), then essentially gravity travels faster than the speed of light. A contradiction.
