  • Older Generation
    583 words
    The young set themselves free especially, the young women. They shocked the older generation with their new hair style (a short bob) and the clothes that they wore were often much shorter than had been seen and tended to expose their legs and knees. The wearing of what were considered skimpy beach wear in public could get the Flappers, as they were known, arrested for indecent exposure. They wore silk stockings rolled just above the knee and they got their hair cut at male barbers. The President...
  • Blue Class B Hadar
    831 words
    Hadar, also known as Beta Centauri, is the 10th brightest stars (11th as viewed from Earth). Hadar is a blue-white super giant in the constellation Centaurus (Cen). In about 4,000 years, the motion of Alpha Centauri, who's proper name is Rigel Kentaurus, will carry it close enough to Hadar that they will appear to be a magnificent double star. Because of the distance away from Earth that Alpha and Beta Centauri are (approximately 90 parsecs), they will be an optical double. As they sit today, th...
  • Lucky Star Of The Tents

Down and to the east of aquarius, capricorn can be found. Aquarius portrays a man or boy spilling water from an urn. Aquarius is identified with Ganymede, a beautiful young shepherd who was...
  • Stars Magnitudes The Magnitude Scale
    890 words
    Stars Magnitudes The magnitude scale was invented by an ancient Greek astronomer named Hipparchus in about 150 BC He ranked the stars he could see in terms of their brightness, with 1 representing the brightest down to 6 representing the faintest. Modern astronomy has extended this system to stars brighter than Hipparchus' 1st magnitude stars and ones much, much fainter than 6. As it turns out, the eye senses brightness logarithmically, so each increase in 5 magnitudes corresponds to a decrease ...
  • Encyclopedia Britannica Tycho Brahe
    569 words
    Tycho Brahe was born on December 14th, 1546 in a town calledKnudstrup in Scania, Denmark. His early years were filled with pain, as he was kidnapped by his uncle and raised in his castle in Tostrup, Scania.

  • 130 Light Years Of Earth
    417 words
    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...
  • Of Norton's Best Writing
    1,259 words
    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 ...
  • Reader Of The Constant Star The Poem
    579 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 as...

    693 words
    The Crab Nebula The Crab Nebula is the nearest, most conspicuous and appealing supernova remnant.

  • Kobe Bryant
    389 words
    Basketball seems to be a relatively fun sport played and watched by many. It is thought of as a fairly clean game. However, there is also a dark side to the sport, full of false accusations and half truths. An example of this, is the belief that the Los Angeles Lakers star, Kobe Bryant, has sexually assaulted a 19 year old female. I find this to be a lie. First of all, Kobe Bryant is a young and famous basketball star that can most likely get almost any girl he wants. Therefore he would not need...
  • F A L
    370 words
    Although Maurice Clarett was once a star, the accusations against him forced the 2003 Ohio State football team to walk out onto the field without him, proving that he wasn't needed anymore. Yeah this essay is complete crap, I just need to fill in some space here. The Ohio State team demonstrated composure without their star running back. The two backups for the man with large shoes to fill proved to the world that they have potential almost as great as Clarett's. By the way, boondock saints kick...
