The Milky Way Galaxy is made up of stars, nebulae, stellar stars and supernovas. In The early 20th Century, astronomers were trying to figure out what the faint fizzy objects in the sky they had a variety of different shapes. Some were elongated, round and some has spiral arms. Looking at the sky with a telescope the objects looks smokey and got their name “?Nebulae”. Astronomers couldn't quite understand how they formed and began doing research, later discovering what the objects are.
The Milky Way is the galaxy that contains our Solar System. The descriptive "milky" is derived from the appearance from Earth of the galaxy a band of light seen in the night. From Earth, the Milky Way appears as a band because its disk shaped structure is viewed from within. Galileo Galilei first resolved the band of light into individual stars with his telescope in 1610. Until the early 1920s most astronomers thought that the Milky Way contained all the stars in the Universe. Following the 1920 Great Debate between the astronomers Harlow Shapley and Heber Curtis and an observation by Edwin Hubble showed that the Milky Way is just one of many galaxies.
The Milky Way is the galaxy that contains our solar system. Its name “ Milky” was derived from its appearance as a dim glowing band arching across the night sky whose individual stars cannot be distinguished by the naked eye. The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy, which means it spiral out from the middle.
It is considered a near-twin to the Milky Way galaxy.Since the gas in Andromeda's halo is dark, the team looked at bright background objects through the gas and observed how the light changed. This is a bit like looking at a glowing light at the bottom of a pool at night. The ideal background "lights" for such a study are quasars, which are very distant bright cores of active galaxies powered by black holes. The team used 18 quasars residing far behind Andromeda to probe how material is distributed well beyond the visible disk of the galaxy. Their findings were published in the May 10,
Those stars in the night sky seem small and tiny, but up close they would be millions of times larger than the Earth. Stars are the most recognized astronomical objects and are the building blocks of the galaxies. These luminous spheres made of plasma are responsible for the creation of heavy elements like carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen. They were among the first objects in the early universe. Most of the elements found in the human body originated in stars, this means that we are literally made of stardust. When you are staring at stars from the night sky, you are actually looking back in time, the light you see could be from a million years ago. The study of the birth, life and death of stars are the central field of astronomy today.
I have chosen to use the constellation Andromeda. I chose it, because I did not know much about it and enjoyed doing a bit of research over this particular constellation. The constellation Andromeda was first catalogued by Ptolemy. It’s the nineteenth biggest constellation and the brightest start is Alpheratz.
Good morning 7D and Mr McLaren today i will be presenting my research data and start analyzing and compare which of my to suburbs are more liveable. In this task I was given Carina it is a suburb in Brisbane with a population of 11025 and is 4.5km big its exact location is 27.4858° S, 153.1000° E the other suburb is yet again located in Brisbane it is Everton park, Everton Park has a population of 8862 and is 4.2km in size after conducting my investigation I have found that Carina is more liveable i have discovered this by looking at the Economical, Environmental and Social factors of
Tired of games always taking place on the same planet? Do you want to go out into space and unleash your inner space pirate? Or are you just looking for games where you can explore the galaxy? Then take a look at this list, you are sure to find something that you’ll love playing.
The Orion Nebula contains one of the brightest star clusters in the night sky. With a magnitude of 4, this nebula is easily visible from the Northern Hemisphere during the winter months. It is surprising, therefore, that this region was not documented until 1610 by a French lawyer named Nicholas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc. On March 4, 1769, Charles Messier inducted the Orion Nebula, M42, into his list of stellar objects. Then, in 1771, Messier released his list of objects for its first publication in Memoires de l'Academie.1
Carina Storrs, CNN article “This is your child’s brain on reading”, she discusses the various research studies focusing on early brain development in children who are introduced to literacy at early stages of life. The studies show how the brains activity increases with children as young as newborn. Studies have been performed by many different researchers. Ms. Storrs has quoted several of those researchers in her article with scientific proof of the advantages in a child’s behavior and academic performance by reading to younger children. Various studies have been conducted all over the country with some of the same results.
Cassiopeia is not just comprised of stars, though, as there are also nebulae and supernova remnants (including that of Tycho's Star). As Cassiopeia is made up of many different celestial objects, it is not possible to say exactly how far away it is; however, its closest star (Eta) is 19.42 light years away and its brightest (Alpha) is 229 light years away.
Our sun is halfway through its life cycle and based on the studies of the stars, when it reaches the last stages of its life it will go supernova destroying Earth, but that won’t happen in about 5 billion years.
A galaxy, also called a nebula, consists of billions of stars, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter which are all bound to form a massive cloud in which we live in. Although it cannot be very well explained, dark matter makes up at least 90% of a galaxy’s mass.
