  • Concepts Of Travel At Light Speed
    1,448 words
    For many years time travel was the stuff of science fiction. This was all just part of the world's imagination until recently. Scientists now believe that the current laws of physics allow us to travel though time. They believe that we can now travel back to see our founding fathers sign the declaration of independence. We could travel to 2999 to witness the birth of the next new millennium. Such travel would require a machine capable of withstanding great pressures and incredible amounts of spe...
  • Visual Acuity In Space
    1,093 words
    THE HUMAN EYE IN SPACE by Lambert Parker (edited) ASTRONOMY AND SPACE SIG Human visual hardware is a result of a billion years of evolution within the earths atmosphere where light is scattered by molecules of air, moisture, particular matter etc. However as we ascend into our atmosphere with decrease density, light distribution is changed resulting in our visual hardware receiving visual data in different format. Some Aspects to Consider: 1. Visual acuity is the degree to which the details and ...

  • Hubble Space Telescope
    1,016 words
    The Hubble Space Telescope was named after Edwin Hubble, the leading American astronomer of the 20th century. It was built under the supervision of NASA after the U.S. Congress had authorized its construction in 1977. It is capable of performing observations in the visible, near-ultraviolet, and near-infrared. Power to the two on-board computers is generated by two 2.4 by 12.1 meter solar panels. The Hubble's current science instruments include three cameras (Wide-Field Planetary Camera 2, Near ...
  • Edgar Degas Ballet Dancer With Arms Crossed

    It is in his concepts of man versus himself, his studying of light, capturing a moment and use of large shapes to flatten space that makes Edgar Degas an impressionist.

In Phenomena and Idea, Stephen Holl once wrote, ' The thinking-making couple of architecture occurs in silence. Afterward, these "thoughts' are communicated in the silence of phenomenal experiences. We hear the "music' of architecture as we move through spaces while arcs of sunlight bea...
