The class was a college course (Physics 195) offered through California State University Dominguez Hills and their very impressive distance learning DHTV program and young scholars programs, the latter offering college courses to high school juniors and seniors throughout California. Earth has a protective global magnetic field to protect us all from intense radiation, Mars has not got this protection so we would be exposed to high volumes of radiation and we would need spacesuits at all times when venturing outdoors.

There wasn't a strong enough pattern to help determine the rotational period. (A detailed explanation is available on my website .) I presented information about my project at a meeting of the Astronomical Society of Southern New England. The TGO is a joint mission between the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos). Bruce Betts, Jason Davis, Casey Dreier and Emily Lakdawalla gather with Mat Kaplan for a fascinating and informative Planetary Radio Extra year-in-review roundtable discussion.

He concludes with an activity, along with advice on viewing eclipses. by Nick Hunter covers some of the coolest phenomena we can see without a telescope: the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. The more massive the star, the greater its luminosity, and the more rapidly it expends the hydrogen fuel in its core.

Galaxy formation, stellar evolution, orbital dynamics, and even Dark Matter simulations rely heavily on computers. Matt Burton, Blake Hendrix, and Jared Powell are representing EMU Physics at the Quadrennial SPS Physics Congress this November. This means that although this desert planet is just half the diameter of Earth, it has the same amount of dry land. Neal, Where Next, Columbus?: The Future of Space Exploration (1994); J.

But their nature -- the fact that the lights are electromagnetic and respond to solar activity -- was only realized in the last 150 years. Astronomy is the study of the physical and chemical properties of the stars, planets, galaxies and the universe, as we know it, today and in the past. Hipparchos completes the first catalog of the stars. Because gravity pulled evenly in all directions, the planets were generally shaped like spheres. KB- I have many years of experience working with data, databases, and data science methodology (including data mining, statistics, and visualization).

The United States made its first spacewalk during Gemini 4, and subsequent flights established techniques for rendezvous and docking in space. As more and more planets are found, it’s only a matter of time until the most important astronomical discovery in history is made: a planet full of benevolent and sexy aliens. The published scientific data will be shared via the World Wide Web (WWW) using our Data Management Plan for sharing semantically relevant data.

For more accurate - up to date declination use the NOAA calculator at the link below: Flatland is one of the very few novels about math and philosophy that can appeal to almost any layperson. The data retrieved from all the attempts are precious steps toward understanding how to do a “supersonic retropropulsion” burn to slow a vehicle in air … under conditions very similar to the conditions a Dragon capsule will face entering the Martian atmosphere.

Most detect electromagnetic radiation, but there are major differences in how astronomers must go about collecting light (electromagnetic radiation) in different frequency bands. We have discovered that, like yourself, the faculty at George Mason University is a virtual well of information and that your school has been one of the premier sources of one of the most well trained student bodies in the nation. Instead, they were raised on a robust robotic exploration of the Red Planet.

Earth�s Water Cycle in a Changing Climate - Webcast of a presentation at the Library of Congress by Peter Hildebrand, chief of the Hydrospheric and Biospheric Sciences Laboratory at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. [U. Geologists use a rock hammer to break open rocks to study what is inside them. Channels, valleys, and gullies are found all over Mars, and suggest that liquid water might have flowed across the planet's surface in recent times.

Spectral line – Specific wavelength of light that corresponds to the energy exchange of an atom or molecule. The speed of planetary orbits and their distance from the sun is addressed. Now, some of you may be familiar with some woowoos claiming that a big planet (called, creatively, Planet X) is supposed to pass the Earth in May of 2003 (or, for those trying to milk the situation for longer to make more money off it, Sometime In The Near Future). Thursday's Classroom - The aim of Thursday's Classroom is to provide a lasting connection between NASA's latest research and the classroom environment.
