Saturn is the second largest planet and sixth number planet of our solar system. Saturn is a gas giant made up of hydrogen and helium. It is big enough to hold more than 760 Earths within it, and is second massive planet after Jupiter, roughly 95 times Earth 's mass. However, Saturn has the lowest density among all the planets of solar system .It spins faster than any other planet except Jupiter which help Saturn with its magnetic field which is about 578 times more powerful than Earth 's. Although Saturn has at least 62 moons but its largest moon, Titan, is slightly bigger than Mercury, and is the second-largest moon in the solar system after Jupiter 's moon Ganymede (our moon is fifth largest).Although it is the most interesting planet
I researched about William Herschel, who was a conductor, organist, composer and music teacher. William Herschel knew the stars well and was always curious as to what was beyond the Earth. He had built himself a homemade telescope and enjoyed viewing the stars from it. As he was observing the stars one night he noticed an object that he could not clarify what it was. Other astronomers had seen this object, but never really observed how different it was. William Herschel was the first to notice this odd object and was curious to find out more. This odd object, Uranus, was the first planet in recorded history to be discovered. The discovery of Uranus was just the beginning of William Herschel’s discoveries. He left his work with music and became
Herschel, an amateur astronomer, was not seeking to discover a new planet. Besides general curiosity, his motivations appear to be money, prestige, and power. He was looking for double stars as a way to measure stellar parallax. He had built his own 7ft reflector telescope which he moved to his house in Bath. There he discovered what would later be called Uranus.
Uranus, the first god of the sky and lord of the universe. We was born from the Chaos and Gaea. Chaos was pretty much nothing and Gaea was the goddess of the Earth pretty much mother nature. Uranus had 18 children 12 titans, 3 cyclopes, and 3 heratoncheires. His children were Cronus, Rhea, Hyperion, Mnemosyne, Themis, Coeus, Phoebe, Prometheus, Epimetheus, Metis, Oceanus, and Tethys. He didn 't like the cyclopes and heratoncheries so he locked them up in the middle of the earth which gave Gaea pain. So Gaea told her son to rebel a against him to stop him from her pain. Gaea was infuriated and created a diamond sickle, which she gave to Cronus, one of the Titans. Cronus found his father and castrated him in while he was asleep, from the blood that fell onto the earth, the Erinnyes, the Giants and the Meliads were made, while his sperm fell into sea, Aphrodite was created from the
The first picture was named The Geocentric Universe of Ptolemy by Claudius Ptolemy in 100 CE. He was a astronomer who was living in Alexandria, Egypt that believed the Sun would rotate the Earth. His theory involved him with stating Geocentric which means “Earth-centered” .Later around 1500, Nicolaus Copernicus had the theory The Heliocentric Universe of Copernicus. Instead of the sun rotated the Earth it was the other way around, he called this Heliocentric which means “Sun-centered”. But this was only the beginning of science.
I chose “Astronomy: Discovery of Uranus by William Herschel in 1781” as the topic for my research. I found that William Herschel was many things, including a musician, composer, teacher, and astronomer. William also built his own telescopes to look into the night sky. During one of his searches, he found something odd; it wasn’t a nebulous star or comet, but something different. It turned out to be a planet which he named “Georgium Sidus” or Georges star in honor of George III. The motivation for the discovery was his love of the heavens. He and his sister had found many objects in the night sky including several comets. I am positive that Herschel had relied on the work of others but the articles didn’t specify. The reason I am positive
Do you think you know a lot about the god of the sky. Well think again because here is the 6 most important facts about the Zeus. His Roman equivalent is Jupiter. He carries lightning bolts which he got from the cyclops. He is the youngest of all three. He is the god of the sky. He live on Mount Olympus. Originally in Greece, the olympics were held to honor Zeus. These are the 6 most interesting facts about the lord of the sky.
Myths are not dissimilar to fairy tales, legends, and sagas, but its period is distinctly different from usual existential time. It is considered as an expression of childhood experiences, and it also explains the origin and meaning of the world. According to Long (1994), “The term mythology may describe a certain body of myths, for example, Greek, African, or Scandinavian, or it may refer to the study of myths” (p.694). These collections of narratives are superior when it comes to influencing different areas of knowledge. There are numerous types of mythology, but Ancient Greece is the one that has given an immense influence on modern society.
Pluto was once considered one of the nine major planets in our solar system until 2006. The reason for this was in 2003, when an astronomer found another object in close proximity to Pluto that appeared to be larger. Based on Pluto’s size and location it was stripped of its status and was then classified as a dwarf planet.
William Herschcel was self-motivated. He discovered Uranus with a telescope that he built himself. One night as he was surveying stars he noticed that some stars seemed different, and after he began to observe it many more times he noticed it orbited the sun. This lead to the discovery of Uranus and two of its moons.
The Enlightenment also known as the age of reason was a time of great philosophy, advancement. The Enlightenment gained so much force that in the mid-1700s that it destroyed old beliefs and led to lasting changes in society and government. While the Enlightenment was an influential time that affected others
One of the main reasons that led astronomer William Herschel, and others that would follow, to increase the power and capabilities of our telescopes was an interest that they had in understanding the construction of the heavens and interstellar objects. I found that another purpose Herschel held in improving the telescope was to isolate as many double stars as he could discover. Herschel made observations based on his curiosities and the curiosities of others that led him to improve the technology that we already had. One very interesting fact was that William Herschel improved the telescope and he did so on the designs and engineering of other scientists that had come before him. He first
For centuries, astronomers in nearly every culture had broadly recognized Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, as they were visible to the naked eye. As telescopes were developed, the study of astrology expanded and the desire to observe and discover was intensified. Amidst this new wave of development and excitement, William Herschel, was born in Germany. After moving to England and initiating a career as an organist, his love of books stimulated a significant interest in the heavens and magnificent wonders therein.
