Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun and was discovered in ancient times and it is named after the king of the Roman Gods. Jupiter is best known for being the largest planet and it’s iconic red spot and stripe patterning. Jupiter has four main moons that orbit at different rates and patterns. Jupiter is a gas planet and can grow very cold.
Scientist know that planets that are closer to the sun are more rocky and the planets that are farther away are mostly made of gas so they know that the planets closer to the sun are more likely to have life on them (Notes). Knowing the solar nebula theory scientists will have a better understanding of how other solar systems formed so they could compare the gravity of the suns of other solar systems to the gravity of our own. (solar nebula theory notes and Objects in orbit)
The faintly visible, blue-green, gas planet is called Uranus. Although only visited once, Astronomers have come a long way since ancient times with the research of this extraordinary planet. Most people only remember Uranus as "the sideways planet", but in reality, Uranus is unfathomably unique.
I think that the symbolical significance of the prehistoric cultural figures like the Venus of Willendorf deals mostly with the religious and social aspects of the human existence. Cultural critics and historians point out that during ancient time primitive societies were mostly matriarchic and a woman was considered a symbol of fertility. Childbirth from such point of view was considered as a holy act of life-giving. The fact that the woman is big and has massive gender features makes for the theory that women with large genitals can give birth to more children with less pain during the process of childbirth. Moreover, during the ancient times prosperity and health were implied by the physical characteristics. Big breasts of the Venus of WIllendorf serve as symbolical physical features of fertility (breast feeding) (Russell & Cohn, 2011).
This piece is called, Mars Venus and Vulcan: The Forge of Vulcan, it is an oil canvas done by John Singleton Copley, done in 1754. The era that this piece most represents is the Eighteenth- and early nineteenth-centuries of art in Europe and North America. This is because of the brief use of nudity and the use of children that are shown as little angels. The artist also used a sense of time and motion. It is as if the figures in the piece are moving themselves. The use of 3-D and kinetics allows this sense of movement in this piece. Also the artist used repetition and rhythm. The viewer’s eye is constantly moving because of this sense of repetition and rhythm
Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venus Return also known as (PAPVR) is when the four pulmonary veins return oxygen-rich blood from the lungs back to the right atrium. PAPVR is more commonly diagnosed among children. This condition causes oxygen-rich blood to flow back into the lungs instead of forward to the rest of the body. PAPVR is a rare congenital heart defect that can either be total (TAPVR) or partial (PAPVR). If it is not diagnosed and treated early in life it can create extreme difficulties in their life and eventually might need to have a total heart transplant. PAPVR can affect people in many ways; however, it can become life threatening if not treated.
I think there are definite benefits to our world by studying other worlds. There are many similarities to other planets in the Solar System to Earth. We are able to study these planets and understand better why certain physical changes happen. For example, why the atmosphere on Mars is thin or why the atmosphere on Venus is not able to secure anything living. We are able to study these differences and overall, we are able to understand the planet we live on better. Also, by studying other worlds, we can prevent dangers to the global affect here on
This experiment was conducted to study and investigate if extraterrestrial life exists upon the exoplanet TRES 2. It was hypnotized that TRES 2 did not sustain the qualifications to support extraterrestrial existence. The results from this testing conclude the hypothesis was correct, with research as an addition from the luminosity testing it has been knowledge that TRES 2 reflects less than 1% of light making it one of the darkest exoplanets currently discovered. Light is a crucial element in the building blocks of life, it is the most important factor that influence the way life evolved on Earth. From photosynthesis, which is responsible for making producing nutrients in plantae’s and meeting our energy requirements. Furthermore TRES 2 orbits
The topic of finding life on another planet, or seeing if we are the only ones in our Universe has been a mystery to us since the beginning of time. One of the closest findings NASA has found to this topic was exoplanets. Exoplanet is defined as a planet that orbits a star outside the solar system. NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope is the main telescope used to search for exoplanets that have similar features to Earth, and habitability on these exoplanets. NASA has found over 2,000 exoplanets so far, and out of those, there are only about eight exoplanets that seem to have a possibility on being a habitable exoplanets. Among these eight, Kepler 62f seems to be the most plausible.
Many scientist used telescopes to look at the planets and turned up the brightness. It helped showing how far the planet was and to show there are planets between the star and earth. Scientist started looking for pulsating stars and using them to find different planets. To find smaller planets scientist used NASA’s Kepler telescope. The telescope was very helpful for NASA and it proved that there are smaller planets. They figured out that some stars have planets. NASA’s help was very successful and they found different planets by the
Humans have longed to believe in extrasolar planets, as surely there have to be planets elsewhere in the universe. Claims of supposedly discovered extrasolar planets can be dated back to 1855 when Captain S. W. Jacobs from the Madras observatory, claimed that he had discovered a planet orbiting a binary system (Jacobs 1855), all the way up until 1991 when a team of astronomers announced then retracted the alleged discovery of an extrasolar planet around a pulsar star (Lyne and Bailes 1992). Planets are extremely hard to detect as they are a very faint light source and the light from its parent star is much brighter and essentially blocks out light from a planet (Winters 1996). It was not until 1992 when the first exoplanets were confirmed
During the Upper Paleolithic era artists created a wide range of small sculptures. These sculptures were made from various materials, including ivory, bone, clay, and even stone. They represented humans, as well as animals; they even combined them at times. Most of the sculptures from this time show a high level of skill. From this time, there were two very influential sculptures, The Venus of Willendorf and the Venus of Laussel. This paper will discuss both sculptures, in detail, as well as, compare and contrast them.
Ancient astronomers were able to differentiate between stars and planets, as stars remain relatively fixed over the centuries while planets will move an appreciable amount during a comparatively short time.
"A planet is a celestial body that revolves around a central star and does not shine by its own light " (Grolier, 1992). The only planetary system that is known to man is our
