  • Gravity For The Object
    392 words
    Gravity has many benefits to humanity. It holds us to the earth so we do not fall off the earth and die in space. It holds the planets in orbit around the sun, and moons in orbit around their planets. It also holds stars in orbit around the center of the universe. (Gibben, page 14) Sir Isaac Newton thought that God created a perfect universe. He thought our universe was so perfectly designed that if God left the universe could run by itself. This view was extremely different early pagan scientis...
  • Tropist Theory Of Properties As Particulars
    1,673 words
    In examining the world around us we notice many similarities. There is a great deal of reoccurrence, which we can not help but to notice. The same shape occurs over and over in so many different objects. Rings, cans, bottles, candies, the same property we term roundness is found in all these objects. Likewise we see the same color in so many different objects. Often people say these recurrences make the world a dull place. The same set of properties continuously shows up. The best we can hope fo...
  • Shedding Light On Our Galaxies Dark Matter
    1,185 words
    Dark Matter Andrew Bilbrey Honors Physical Science Mr. Crupi 9/17/97 I'll be the first one to admit it. Dark mater is a boring subject. But until we can all grasp the meaning of quantum physics and what our universe is made of, we will never understand ourselves. This is what dark matter is all about; what scientists have been mystified about for the past few years. Many questions have come up in the study of this puzzling matter, but maybe we should start out with the basics. The Basics All thr...
  • Indeterminism Lead To Again James
    1,214 words
    Dilemma of Determinism Determinism, in effect, pictures a "block universe", one where part decrees part. This is a universe of necessity and impossibility everything is either necessary or impossible. There is no real possibility. Indeterminism takes the view, instead, that the possibilities outnumber the actualities that there are real possibilities. The decision between determinism and indeterminism cannot be made on the basis of fact. It's not an issue of fact. [That is, neither can be proved...
  • Relationship Between Ishmael And Captain Ahab

    Biographical Insights A. The culture this great author was a part of was the time in American history where inspiring works of literature began to emerge. It was also a time when American writers had not completely separated its literary heritage from Europe, partly because there were successful literary genius' flourishing there. B. Herman Melville was born on August 1, 1819, he was the son of Allan and Maria Melville. During Herman's childhood he lived in the "good" neighborhoods of New York C...
  • Dark Matter
    1,040 words
    There is perhaps no current problem of greater importance to astrophysics and cosmology than that of 'dark matter'. The controversy, as the name implies, is centered on the notion that there may exist an enormous amount of matter in the Universe that cannot be detected from the light that it emits. The evidence of dark matter is from the motions of astronomical objects, specifically stellar, galactic, and galaxy cluster / super cluster observations. The basic argument is that if we measure veloc...
  • Evidence Before Guth's Inflationary Universe Idea
    816 words
    1. What is the most interesting thing you have learned from this book Alan Guth's book takes you through the journey of his life, and his career in which he made many scientific discoveries. I especially liked the way that he maps out these discoveries because it was fun to discover along with him. Throughout Guth's life he has been putting together the pieces of a giant puzzle. The concept that I found to be most interesting was that of blackbody radiation. This concept is used universally in m...
  • Universal Force Of Gravity
    739 words
    Stars and galaxies began to form about one billion years following the Big Bang, and since then the universe has simply continued to grow larger and cooler, creating conditions conducive to life. Three excellent reasons exist for believing in the big-bang theory. First, and most obvious, the universe is expanding. Second, the theory predicts that 25 percent of the total mass of the universe should be the helium that formed during the first few minutes, an amount that agrees with observations. Fi...
  • Hubble Space Telescope The Hubble Space Telescope
    537 words
    Hubble Space Telescope The Hubble Space Telescope is the product of a joint effort between National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA). It was delivered into low-Earth orbit by the space shuttle Discovery on April 25th, 1990. The planning and operation of the HST is done for NASA by the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). The HST's cameras provide NASA with high resolution photographs of distant celestial objects, its spectrograph provides info...
  • Black Holes Mike Carey Scientists
    720 words
    Mike Black Holes BLACK HOLES Mike Carey Scientists have been trying to determine if black holes (earlier known as 'frozen stars) truly do exist for several decades now. Thanks to the great Albert Einstein and his theory of relativity, researchers have been able to predict the cosmic phenomenon of black holes. A black hole is basically an area of space that has an unbelievably high area of concentrated mass for the space it occupies, making it impossible for an object to escape its gravitational ...
