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
A star that goes by the name of Trappist 1 (named after the small telescope in Chile TRAnsiting Planets and PlanetesImals Small Telescope–South)has orbiting planets in the constellation Aquarius. Trappist 1 is about 40 light years away from Earth and is 12 times less the size of the sun but only a little bit bigger than Jupiter. Out of these seven planets, three of them are best suited for life. These planets are part of the Goldilocks Zone, they have the right amount of energy from their host star that oceans could exist. A group of astronomers found these planets by using a method called the transit method of planetary detection.
First of all, Saturn is the only planet within our solar system that is less dense than water. An important difference to note, is that Jupiter and Saturn are referred to as gas giants, composed of mainly helium and hydrogen gases, while Uranus and Neptune are actually more like ice giants, due to their composition of ices. All of these planets are also
However, the very little she does use is primarily pathos to grab the audience’s attention. She discusses the price jumps of two medicines (Retrophin and Daraphim). According to the speaker, Shkrelli was the man behind both of the price changes. Pathos is used by the attempt to make the audience empathize the consumers that have faced the cruelty of the pharmaceutical industry and their ridiculous price changes. While trying to incite emotions she uses logos by inputting statistics of the price jump which is said to be about twenty times for Retrophin and about fifty five times for
This shared certain characteristics: A soreness in his jaw, the unrelenting tang of sterility, and the assurance that his best hope would be to experience only mild discomfort. Frankly, he counted himself lucky that she hadn’t decided to experiment on his teeth. On the other hand, he suspected it was only a matter of time. “Did you know that the human mouth carries more bacteria than a toilet seat? And here you are, spreading them all over delicate scientific equipment without a care in the world.
In fact, countless of ads are only slightly true and instead filled with many common errors in reasoning, known as logical fallacies, a sneaky marketing technique companies utilize to trick a consumer into giving them their undivided attention and money. In fact, one notorious company for using logical fallacies in their advertisements is Proactiv. Thus, the Proactiv commercial featuring Lindsay Lohan that aired on TV a couple of years ago is a precise example of the appeal to authority, bandwagon, and plain folk logical fallacies being used to get their product sold. In the commercial, Proactiv uses an appeal to authority to earn an individual’s trust. To clarify, this logical fallacy is used when a company or brand hires a popular celebrity or a person with “authority” to advertise and express how beneficial a product is.
The spacecrafts appear small compared to the black universe. In Space Odyssey the earth is sometimes visible when we see the spaceships and space station. This is a further element for comparing size. In Interstellar the Black hole is seen behind the Endurance which makes it appear even smaller. Both films offer elements that allow us to compare the size of the spaceships.
Therefore, he displays different examples to persuade the readers that society’s morality is corrupted and that the whole industry of boiling lobsters alive is accepted under a false premise that some animals are not deserving of protection, or are not ‘highly developed’ to feel pain. Therefore, Wallace’s essay, Consider the Lobster goes furthermore than criticizing the lobster’s industry because, in the end, he persuades the readers that the whole morality of the society is
The article, “Why onions make us cry” written by Lindsey Konkel discusses the reasons and the science behind why onions make us cry. The author Lindsey Konkel was not directly involved in the research, but she does a great job presenting the research and findings of the researchers. The article discusses the work of three different research teams and how their work provided a piece that helped solve the question,”Why onions make us cry”. The article first presents the findings of Eric Block, a chemist and a professor at The College at Albany. Eric Block specializes in Allium Chemistry, the study of plants such as garlic and onions.
Aylmer’s insanity and desire for perfection lead to Georgiana’s death as his concoction cannot derail the laws of nature. This contradicts many articles as scientists are creating a sustainable method to feed the world by genetically modifying food. Not only is it cheaper to grow GMO’s, but larger yields can be produced resulting in a billion dollar industry. Hawthorne’s belief that scientists dangerously attempt to attain perfection is clearly
Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, named, respectively, fear and panic, after the sons of Ares and Aphrodite. They are both small, irregularly shaped rocky bodies. Phobos is larger by several kilometers and also has larger craters, some stretching as far as 28 kilometers long and nearly as wide. However, Deimos is also home to very large craters. They have very low densities, which suggests that these moons were 'captured ' asteroids and did not form with their mother planet.
How does the Milky Way compare with other galaxies within the universe? It’s a spiral galaxy of the larger sort and middle aged compared to other galaxies. There are many galaxies in the Universe that are much bigger and older than the Milky Way. 5. How do gravity and dark matter shape the galaxies and affect their environment?
I am writing this letter in response to your recent article in Elite Daily regarding the safety of genetically modified organisms. The author. Amanda Jo, express her opposition to GMO’s, without authentic scientific evidence to back up the statements, by encouraging readers to avoid GMO’s because they killing us. Articles such this one that tell horrible myths about GMOs has resulted in people to fear genetically modified organisms without genuinely understanding what the are. In fact, when people hear the words “genetically modified” most people envision organisms that are harmful, instead of visualizing organisms that help improve our health and increase food production.
For instance, in a Washington Post news article published in 2014, Abby Phillip reports that a researcher, Dong Pyou Han, manipulated data regarding an HIV vaccine that supposedly worked on rabbits for personal fame. Phillip reported, "the rabbit blood became contaminated with human antibodies ... Instead of admitting them, [Han] continued to spike future samples... results that were considered to be a breakthrough" (Phillip). Humans are often willing to defy their own values and morals to achieve personal fame. Because recognition and prestige are such emotional luxuries, many people will ignore the consequences of their actions.
