    Worlds may have formed of this stuff, with element and compounds possessing identical properties with out own, indistinguishable from them until they are brought into each other's vicinity. ... Visit some of the astronomy websites, then select and complete a project: Be an Amateur Astronomer. It aims to provide a broad understanding of... Astronomy Space is now a very different place. You will also learn that some of the constellations have what appear to be stars in them that are not stars at all.

    This documentary was made, produced and is completely owned by Discovery Channel. With the recent discovery of Kepler 452b, “Earth’s bigger, older cousin,” worlds that used to be considered science fiction are drawing closer to fact. Please join us for our NOVEMBER members meeting this Friday, Nov 4 at RIT! With brief introductions to the topics, lists of resources and strategies for finding more, they help you to stay on target.

    The Romulans drop a "red matter" bomb into the hole made by the drill. The discovery of the J1407 system and its unusual eclipses were first reported by a team led by University of Rochester astronomer Eric Mamajek in 2012. Gamma rays may be observed directly by satellites such as the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory or by specialized telescopes called atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes. [36] The Cherenkov telescopes do not actually detect the gamma rays directly but instead detect the flashes of visible light produced when gamma rays are absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere. [43] Most gamma-ray emitting sources are actually gamma-ray bursts, objects which only produce gamma radiation for a few milliseconds to thousands of seconds before fading away.

    Notice therefore that Einstein’s worldview is not merely a quantitative modification of Newton’s picture (which is also possible via an equivalent route using the methods of quantum field theory ) but represents a qualitative change of perspective. He measured the distance from the Earth to the Moon to be 29.5 Earth diameters (we know today that the real value is 30 Earth diameters). The branch of learning that deals with phenomena at the scale of many millions of light-years is called cosmology—a term derived from combining two Greek words, kosmos, meaning “order,” “harmony,” and “the world,” and logos, signifying “word” or “discourse.” Cosmology is, in effect, the study of the universe at large.

Isa 40:22-THAT STRETCHETH OUT THE HEAVENS AS A CURTAIN. NASA's Chandra is one of the largest X-ray telescopes in orbit. The origin of galactic cosmic rays has not yet been conclusively identified, but they are thought to be produced in stellar processes such as supernova explosions, perhaps with additional acceleration occurring in the interstellar regions. (For additional information on interstellar matter, see Milky Way Galaxy: The general interstellar medium .) The central region of the Milky Way Galaxy is so heavily obscured by dust that direct observation has become possible only with the development of astronomy at nonvisual wavelengths—namely, radio, infrared, and, more recently, X-ray and gamma-ray wavelengths.

People just starting out with astronomy are especially encouraged to join (or at least come to a star party and look through some excellent telescopes or get some help with that new telescope you have!). If you turned the entire Earth into a black hole it would only be about a centimeter across, the size of a marble. Such bodies are sometimes referred to as Trojans.
