In all, the Juno mission will be completing 36 orbits and send the data back to the space center where then the scientists can gain knowledge about space and Jupiter. But without “Jedi”, the Juno mission would not be a mission. The Jedi provides the needed data and statistics about the energie particles, and which we can know the movement, the radiation, the auroras, and even what kinds of ions, protons and electrons are around Jupiter. The Juno Mission is a huge mission to see what the origin and evolution of Jupiter is and to trace our solar system 's history. We wouldn’t be able to see the origin and evolution of our solar system 's history with Juno… the Jupiter Energetic Particle Detector
Considered the father of modern science, Galileo made major contributions to the fields of physics, astronomy, cosmology, mathematics and philosophy. Curious with the world and stars around him, he designed an improved telescope which allowed him to view the moons surface, and as far as the rings of Saturn. In the 16th and 17th century, that is quite a feat. Also, Galileo had great contributions to the beginning phases of laws of motion. Having done many experiments of the rate in which objects fell, helping him develop the concept of inertia.
Space Exploration: Apollo missions Some of their motivations. They had curiosity about to go beyond of what they already know, touch the stars and inspire generations to pursue science and research as a way of life. Also, NASA team transformed what could be impossible in what was possible, among others. Some of the questions that they had in one of their missions were: How do we go to the Moon? How can finance this mission?
Many people could be given credit for finding Neptune but John Couch Adams and Urbain-Jean-Joseph Le Verrier got most all of the credit. It was the first planet to be discovered by telescope but the first planet to be found by people specifically searching for one. It was launched in August 1977 the spacecraft went to Jupiter in 1979 and Saturn in 1981. After it went there it was programmed to go to Uranus in 1979 and last Neptune in 1989. The data and 10,000 pictures it took increased the knowledge of Neptune majorly.
The planet Uranus was discovered on March 13th, 1781 by German born British-astronomer William Herschel. Herschel found the new planet by using a telescope that he made himself. When he discovered the planet, he didn’t really know what he was looking at. He thought he might have discovered a nebular star or even a new comet. Later on he presented his findings to the Royal Society, where Astronomer Royal Nevil Maskelyne revealed that it actually had a planet like orbit, and did not seem to possess a tail like a comet would.
John Herschel discovered Uranus in 1781 while searching for double stars. There had been recent developments in Newton’s mathematics that would allow astronomers to calculate the orbits of celestial bodies and he wanted to learn more about the physical nature of stars. When he first saw Uranus through his seven-foot reflecting telescope, he thought it was a comet. Very few astronomers believed there was a possibility of more planets, other than the five they knew of, the moon, and the sun. It wasn’t until a Russian astronomer calculated the orbit of the “comet”, following a slow moving path, that it was determined that it was a planet.
Because of my interest in Astronomy, I have picked "Astronomy: Discovery of Uranus by William Herschel in 1781". It was very educational for me to see, how the process of science worked in this particular case, and why it is so important for observations shared and discoveries to be replicated by others. I have based my observations on the work by Simon Schaffer, St. John 's College, Cambridge called "URANUS and the establishment of Herschel 's astronomy". Below is a breakdown of the assignment questions: What was the motivation that led to this discovery? William Herschel was only an amateur astronomer and at that time having a royal patronage was everything.
The Scientific method helped scholars a lot because any scientific question they had could be scientifically answered. Ptolemy, Johannes Kepler, Nicolaus Copernicus all had different theories about where everything in the universe was placed. Ptolemy believed that the universe was geocentric and that the sun revolved around it and that the universe was circular shaped.
Johannes 's first book, Astronomia Nova, was met with either ignorance, denial, or compromise from the other astronomers at the time, i.e., Galileo and René Descartes. Several astronomers who were advocates of Johannes 's theories tested them by observing Mercury 's transit in orbit. It proved Johannes 's theories to be true, despite his own certainty of the planet 's orbit. The main driving force for the spread of Johannes 's theories was one of his later books, Epitome of Copernican Astronomy, that many astronomers read and adopted after Johannes 's death. It led many astronomers to believe Johannes 's theory of elliptical orbits (First Law), but his theory on celestial motions (Second
Does other life exist in the universe outside of humans? Are humans meant to leave Earth in the first place and discover these other life forms? “The Sentinel” explores some of this and really asks questions about life in space and if humans are the most advanced species or if they are merely just pawns in a larger game. Arthur C. Clarks “The Sentinel” uses symbols, characters, and science fiction theories to show humans leaving the cradle of Earth in order to reach a higher level of ascension and explore the great vastness of space and those that inhabit it. “The Sentinel” follows the travels of an astronaut geologist, or selenologist, named Wilson.
