    1306 words, 6 pages

    Analysis of our Solar System On a hot summer night, as you are sitting outside enjoying the evening, you tilt your head back and look into the night sky. You begin to wonder what is really out there? How far away are the stars? Are they stars or are they planets? We live in a part of the night sky called the ¡§Milky Way Galaxy.¡¨ Our galaxy can be seen with the naked eye on a clear summer night. It resembles a ribbon stretched across the night sky. During the summer is when the Milky Way is at its fullest with the stars so clustered together they look like one white mass. Ou

    Hubble

    1154 words, 5 pages

    Edwin Powell Hubble (1889 – 1953), an American astronomer joined Mount Wilson Observatory, California in 1917 and this golden opportunity led him to make a great discovery that broke a new ground in the world of cosmology. At Mount Wilson, he met his greatest scientific rival, Harlow Shapley, a well-reputed astronomer who had measured the size of Milky Way and on this basis erroneously concluded that the spiral nebulae must be relatively nearby clusters and merely patches of dust and gas in the sky. Shapley had the same conventional thinking of that time that the Milky Way was all there was to

    Photography And The Digital Camera

    1209 words, 5 pages

    Digital camera is related to and evolved from the technology that record television images. A device that captures live images from television camera was released in 1951 and was called a video tape recorder. In 1963 a student from Stanford University invented a videodisk camera that could take a photograph and store the image on a disk for several minutes; this was the precursor of digital photography. On the other hand, digital images were also used by the government being spy satellites in 1970s. In the year 1972; a film electronic camera was invented by Texas Instru

    The Impact Of Photography On Everyday Life

    1614 words, 7 pages

    In a book by Alma Davenport, The History of Photography she explains the discovery of certain principles of light behavior in such a way that the reader is lead to believe that a Chinese man named Mo Ti must have discovered it quite by mistake in the 5th century B.C. The text reads only that he “noticed” ”this phenomenon, which occurred when, “light reflected off an object, and that reflection passed through a pinhole onto a dark surface, an inverted image of the object was evident on the darker surface,” (Davenport 4) This must have been an amazing discovery at the time.

    European Science Revolution

    1180 words, 5 pages

    In a popular mind, we associate this revolution with natural science and technological change, but reality the scientific revolution was a series of changes in the structure of European thought itself. The European enlightenment was a series of scientific theories written and taught by Nicolaus Copernicous, Galileo Galilei, Isaac Newton, and Margaret Cavendish, which challenged Europeans religious views. These changes greatly affected the human experience of every other aspect of life, from individual life to the life of the group. You can see that people of the seventeenth and eighteenth ce

    Near Earth Objects And Their Threats To Earth

    1515 words, 7 pages

    Our planet Earth is just a mere speck in the vastness of space which is infinite. The Earth is not alone in the space. There are eight planets in our solar system and hundreds more that have been discovered outside our solar system, and many more that have yet to be discovered. Of all these planets, ours is the only one, so far, that can sustain life. Life on Earth faces the potential to be wiped from existence by threats that lurk beyond our planet. Earth faces external threats from meteors, comets, and asteroids. What is the likelihood of an external threat destroying our planet? To answer

    Milky Way

    1234 words, 5 pages

    1. It’s warped. The Milky Way is a disk about 120,000 light years across (see the Guide to Space article on the diameter of the Milky Way for more), with a central bulge that has a diameter of 12,000 light years. The disk is far from perfectly flat though, as can be seen in the picture below. What warped it? Two of the galaxy’s neighbors – the Large and Small Magellanic clouds – have been pulling on the dark matter in the Milky Way like in a game of galactic tug-of-war. The tugging sets up a sort of oscillating frequency that pulls on the hydrogen gas (of which the M

    University of Phoenix SCI/151 Robert Austin July 15, 2014 Telescopes are tools that provide a way to collect and process electromagnetic radiation that is in space and in the universe. Planets, stars, and other galaxies are all visible through telescopes which magnify the image that is out in space so that it is more visible through the magnification. Through the magnification of telescopes astronomers can study and learn more about the planets and stars that are being viewed. Astronomers’ having the ability to have better vision through the magnification of the telescope helps to deter

    Science of the Stars Astronomical instruments help astronomers correctly identify and classify stars. They do this by allowing the person viewing the data, to see special information regarding many different aspects, whether it be the temperature, by viewing the light. The breakdown of a stars spectrum shows dark lines, in essence these lines form due to the composition of the star, since certain elements absorb different light rays. By utilizing different telescopes, astronomers can study the frequency of a wave, which would give a speed of a planet. This Doppler Eff

    Experiment: Yeast Cells and Haemocytometer Research Question: What is the number of yeast cells per cm³ in different dilutions factor of yeast suspension? Hypothesis: The higher the dilutions factor of yeast suspension, the lesser the number of yeast cells. When the dilution factor increases means that the volume of the distilled water is higher than the number of yeast cells suspended in the solution. So the number of yeast cells will decreases.

    History Of Telescopes

    1006 words, 5 pages

    Since the beginning of time, mankind has wondered about the infinite, sparkling expanse above us. For the majority of that time, we relied only on our human observations with a naked eye to obtain knowledge of that floating expanse, the unknown universe. However, new instruments to observe the cosmos were invented as technology steadily advanced, opening the eyes of the world to a whole new universe. Out of those inventions, the telescope is arguably the most impactful. The term “telescope”, from the Greek tele = 'far' and skopein = 'to look or see'; teleskopos = 'far-seeing', was

    Raymart: What Is Star

    1256 words, 6 pages

    A star is a massive, luminous sphere of plasma held together by gravity. At the end of its lifetime, a star can also contain a proportion of degenerate matter. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun, which is the source of most of the energy on Earth. Other stars are visible from Earth during the night, when they are not obscured by atmospheric phenomena, appearing as a multitude of fixed luminous points because of their immense distance. For at least a portion of its life, a star shines due to thermonuclear fusion of hydrogen in its core releasing energy that traverses the star's interior an

    Is 2012 The End

    1265 words, 6 pages

    Millions believe the world will end in 2012. Many realize the world is swamped with ever more and greater problems—many proving to be insoluble. Is there hope for mankind beyond 2012? What does the Bible teach? Please don't worry about what you might have heard on TV, the radio or in the movies. Their reasons are all bunk. In the early days of computers, when hard drives weighed as much as a piece of furniture, a popular phrase was "Garbage-in, Garbage-out" (GIGO). It meant that computers would unquestioningly process the most nonsensical of input data and produce nonsensical output. "GIG

    Pluto: What Does It Take To Be A Planet

    1262 words, 6 pages

    The International Astronomical Union recently decided on a definition of the word "planet". The IAU members gathered at the 2006 General Assembly agreed that a "planet" is defined as a celestial body that (a) is in orbit around the Sun, (b) has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly round) shape, and (c) has cleared the neighborhood around its orbit. Although Pluto orbits the Sun and its round, it’s not a planet. And that’s because Pluto hasn’t cleared out its orbit of material. This was the reason that the Inter

    Every day you take in hundreds of thousands of images, that at one point a photographer thought out and planned exactly how they felt it should be viewed. Photography is a very important element in today’s visual consumer society, while when it first evolved it was just a rare form of art used to document an important person or place in history. Before photography became an actual form of art and technology philosophers discovered optics between the fourth and fifth century. (Stead) Optics is the way light works and interacts with matter. This discovery started photography’s long journey throu

    By November of 2007, the market share of Nikon’s COOLPIX brand eroded to hit an all time low at 5.5% . With share in the single digits, Nikon had to step up its game. The cause of Nikon’s low market share was two-fold. 1) Nikon COOLPIX wasn’t even in the consideration set for younger consumers. Nikon is known for introducing some of the most advanced professional cameras of our time from yesterday’s 35mm cameras to today’s D-SLR’s. Although a positive among older consumers, this heritage carried negative connotations among 18-34 year olds, our core target. They associated the brand with att

    A supernova is the spectacular death of an ancient and super-giant star. Supernovae have astounded astronomers since humankind first observed them. There are records of supernovae in China more then 2000 years ago. Since a supernova is so bright and so large, humans can see it easily with the naked eye. Supernovae emit as much light and energy as our star will in 10 billion years. Scientists can use this huge amount of light and energy to uncover some of the universe’s secrets. Because supernovae have revealed so many facts about the universe, scientists should study them more deeply to u
