    Compare and Contrast: 'Dune' by Herbert and 'Star Wars' by Lucas The novel Dune by Frank Herbert, and the novel Star Wars by George Lucas have many comparisons and contrasts. Even though they were written more than 10 years apart, they are both very entertaining. In Dune the story takes place on a dry desert planet called Arra kis, where water is very scarce, and only the rich own it. Similarly, in Star Wars the story starts out on a desert world called Tatooine, where water is very scarce and e...
  • The Life Cycle Of A Star
    1,188 words
    Human life is a very beautiful experience. The process starts with the fertilization of the egg, to the birth of a baby, through the life a person up until the death of that person. The life cycle of a star is a process that is just as beautiful and fascinating. Before the star begins its life, there are the components that will create the star. The components look as little like the star, then the sperm and the egg look like a baby. However, unlike the creation and life cycle of a human, the ul...

    Crab Nebula Looking up at the night sky you see stars lying on a never-ending dark blanket. It is within this "blanket", called the interstellar medium, that new stars are formed. The interstellar medium consists of 99% gas and about 1% dust particles. Hydrogen is the predominant gas in both atomic and molecular forms. While being the place where stars are born, the interstellar medium also creates beautiful nebulae. A reflection nebula is created when light from a nearby star reflects from the...

That mystery happens to be that of the ever clandestine, black hole. This...
  • Stars And Black Holes

    By Beatrice A. Lopez Below you will read research on stars and black holes. Black holes are stars whose core has been crushed by gravity. In the text to follow you will see how a star forms, read about its life and how it becomes a black hole. Stars are composed of hydrogen gas and dust. Stars owe their existence to the force of gravity. Stars are created from the thinly spread atoms of dust and gas that swirl throughout space. The atoms clump together into dense clouds that eventually collapse...

    LIFE CYCLE OF A STAR Stars are formed in nebulae, interstellar clouds of dust and gas (mostly hydrogen). These stellar nurseries are abundant in the arms of spiral galaxies. In these stellar nurseries, dense parts of these clouds undergo gravitational collapse and compress to form a rotating gas globule. The globule is cooled by emitting radio waves and infrared radiation. It is compressed by gravitational forces and also by shock waves of pressure from supernova or the hot gas released from nea...

    Could an exploding star have been responsible for the death of the dinosaurs? This idea has become popular again as an explanation for the disappearance of the dinosaurs. An exploding star can blast material enormous distances into space. If this material reached Earth's atmosphere, changes may have occurred that were harmful to life. We call an exploding star a supernova. Nova is the Latin word for new, and in ancient times, when an exploding star was observed, people often thought a new star w...

    Star Man's Son: Wilderness And Human Nature By William Callahan The journey was a favorite theme of Andre Norton. Nevertheless, Norton's use of tragedy is all too often mistaken for revolution in Star Man's Son. In the following paragraphs, it will be proven that Star Man's Son is the most skillful example of reactionary writing ever created. Support for this claim is present in the following: (a) Norton's skillful exploration of the tragic hero in the work, (b) the Constructivist views of Star ...

    The Life of a Star One night while little Jimmy was out camping with his father, he asked his father how a star is made? And his father said there are high-mass stars, intermediate-mass stars, and low-mass stars. The life cycles of stars follow three general patterns each associated with a range of initial mass. Much like human beings stars have a life cycle, they go threw birth, evolution, and death. And little Jimmy said how is that possible? First the star must be born. Many astronomers beli...

    STARS A star is a large celestial body composed of gravitationally contained hot gases giving off electromagnetic radiation, especially light. The sun is actually a star. Unlike the sun the stars seem to be fixed, but in fact stars are in rapid motion, but their distances are so great no relative changes can be seen with the naked eye. The sun is a typically star, with a visible surface called a photosphere, which an atmosphere of hot gases, and above them an out flowing stream of particles call...
  • Poems Bright Star And Choose Something Like A St
    549 words
    Poems Contrasted "Bright Star" and "Choose Something Like a Star" are two poems very different in form and theme. The theme in "Bright Star" is that when in love nothing is more beautiful than your lover. While the theme of "Choose Something Like a Star" is that humans need to be individuals. However these two poems do have a few things such as subject and apostrophe, in common. In the poem "Bright Star" by John Keats the author uses apostrophe when speaking to the star. He addresses the star a...

    Black holes by supernova Firstly, a black hole isn't really a hole at all, but that's the easiest way to think of its effects on the rest of the universe. Take a star that's at least thirty times larger than our sun and make it explode (called a supernova). Stars do that at the end of their lifetime, sometimes leaving a remnant of the violent explosion. The nature of the remnant depends on its mass. If the remnant is less than 1. 4 solar masses, it will become a white dwarf, a kind of hot dead ...
