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.
Good morning Dr. Januzzi, I am contacting you on behalf of the Astronomy Club. As you may or may not have heard, the Associated Students of the University of Arizona released a statement to all of the clubs on campus saying that the Appropriations Board had a meeting on March 6th and concluded that it no longer had any more funds to support any of the clubs until further notice. We received this approximately 2 weeks prior to when we had planned to submit our necessary document to request travel funds for our upcoming 2-day trip to the Grand Canyon/Discovery Telescope on the weekend of April 14-16. Therefore, we are contacting you to ask if the department would consider partially funding this event.
NASA Confirms Planet Discovery Only 21 Light Year Away; Comments on Kepler 452b: 'So What Else Is New?' Following NASA's confirmation of another planet discovery on Thursday, July 30, reports suggested that the enthusiasm over new planets discovery is headed downwards. The new planet is known as HD 219134b and
The solar system started out as a cloud of gas and dust. Now, it is full of planets, moons, asteroids and comets. They began forming more than 4 billion years ago.
Kepler-186f, a Possibly Habitable Planet From the beginning of space exploration, scientists have been searching for earth like planets that could sustain human life, and now, they may have found one. On March 6, 2009 the Kepler spacecraft launched from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on rocket, Delta II. This telescope
Matt and Kate come of age as a pilot/astronaut and suffragette/scientist respectively, and must overcome societal barriers if they want to marry, but first they must use their wits and courage to survive a space disaster on the maiden voyage of the Starclimber into the Earth's orbit. In Starclimber we return for a final time to Matt and Kate. But this time we see a more mature, young adult Matt and Kate, now grown-up and working in the roles they have been trained for. This might be steampunk but it's still set in the early/mid twentieth century, and space travel is becoming a new obsession and a race - between Canada and France. Canada builds a space "elevator" called the Starclimber, a cabin which rides out into space on a thick cable. Both
There are many different stars that exist in our galaxy but all of them fail in comparison to Wolf-Rayet stars. Discovered in 1867 by two astronomers, Charles Wolf, and Georges Rayet, they are the largest and brightest classification of stars currently observed today. Using a Foucault telescope, Wolf and Rayet were able to see a distinct spectrum of light that had never been observed before and thus Wolf-Rayet stars were born. Also called WR stars, there are characteristics that make these stars distinct from any other in the galaxy. One of the most well known Wolf-Rayet Stars is WR-104. It has distinct pinwheel shape and is referred to by some astronomers as a real life “death star”. The reason for this designation comes from the idea that
2 Questions: 1. How do we know the composition and layers of our star, Sun? 2. What kind of heavy elements are contained in the core of a star? Do all stars share a common composition and internal structure?
Kepler-438b is an exoplanet discovered by the Kepler Space Telescope in January 2015, through the transit method (when a planet passes in front of its parent star, resulting in very slight dimming in the star’s brightness, this change in brightness is measured). It was one of 8 new exoplanet discoveries made by the Kepler mission that NASA announced in January 2015, all of which were believed to be potentially habitable. Of these exoplanets, two took the place of being the most Earth-like exoplanets that had been discovered up to that point. These were the Kepler-438b and the Kepler-442b.
The Important thing about the inner planets is that they are rocky planets .The inner planets include Earth, Venus, Mercury ,and Mars. They are also slow.But, the most Important thing about the inner planets is that they are rocky. The Important thing about outer planets is they are made up of helium and hydrogen.The outer planets have many moons.The outer planets move faster.The outer planets are gas giants .But, the most Important thing about outer planets is that they are made up helium and hydrogen
The Kepler Mission began in March 7th, 2009. The goal of The Kepler Mission is to “survey a portion of our region of the Milky Way galaxy to discover dozens of Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone” (NASA). This is accomplished by using a photometer to look for transits, then transferring the data to earth through the Deep Space Network. Once a planet has been detected, a number of different methods can be used to determine the planet’s size, composition and habitability. In order to understand The Kepler Mission completely, one must understand the structure of Kepler, the search methods used, how the data is interpreted, and the implications of the results.
Stars come in a variety of sizes, luminosities, surface temperatures and masses. Through these different characteristics, it is found that there is a pattern (with some special cases). This pattern was first recognized by Danish astronomer Ejnar Hertzsprung and American astronomer Henry Norris Russel during the first decade of the 20th century. They plotted various stars' luminosities on one axis and spectral types on the other. This showed the pattern. These patterns are shown on graphs and are referred to as Hertzsprung-Russel (H-R) diagrams. These types of diagrams are used today still as they are important tools in astronomical research.
The study of our stars is very important, astronomers study them to predict what will happen to our sun, which directly affects us.
Meta: From the reels to the outer reaches of space, Star Adventure is a new game from NuWorks that is star bound in every sense. Powered by space dust, does this title deliver the out of this world experience it promises?
Everything has a system, a routine, a cycle. For stars, their life cycle can last billions of years. Every star we see in the night sky is at a different stage in its life cycle. As NASA said, “Stars are the most widely recognized astronomical objects, and represent the most
