Protostars are stars that are just i...
  • Planets In A Solar System
    734 words
    Where the Planets Are In the beginning, the Earth was believed to be both flat and at the center of the universe. Then a sailor set sail to prove that the Earth is in fact round. Decades later science proved that the churches were wrong and in fact the Earth orbited around the Sun not the other way around. Now it is commonly known that the solar system that the human race lives in is just a small part of a much larger spinning body called a galaxy. Now science argues about whether or not Pluto i...

    Are we alone in this universe Does life exist in other planets These are the kind of questions that are yet to be answered. Within the last 100 years scientists have shown remarkable advancement in space science. Millions of dollars are gone and a lot of time has been spent to answer the above questions. Space telescopes have brought us pictures of unknown planets that might have some indication of life like that of the Earth. But we are unfortunate to say that out of the nine neighbor planets, ...

  • Smaller Escape Velocity
    493 words
    Stars, comets, planets, they are all visible when you look up past our atmosphere. What if I told you that there were objects up there that you could not see, but had more gravity than an object 500 time larger than our sun. Objects, that are capable of swallowing whole planets within a split second of time. An object that would steal light right out of thin-air. These objects are more powerful than anything man made. Black holes are the most popular unknown object in science. A black hole is an...
  • Atmosphere With Clouds Like Planet Earth
    2,085 words
    Astronomy is not just about the stars. Astronomy is about the constellations, the nine planets, the sun and the moons. The solar system is very complex and has many extraordinary objects. There are four different types of stars: Protostars, Bright Stars, Red Giants, and White Dwarfs. Protostars are stars that are on the verge of being born. They are glowing clouds of dust and gas. Gravity pulls on every atom moving them towards the center of the cloud of dust, which causes the Protostars to coll...

    BETA PICTORIS: PLANETS? LIFE? OR WHAT? JARA ASTRONOMY 102 SEC 013 The ultimate question is; Is there a possibility that life might exist on a planet in the Beta Pictoris system?

To understand where ...

  • 10 Trillion Stars With Earth Like Planets
    1,838 words
    When considering the likeliness of life arising repeatedly throughout our universe, the first three terms of the Drake Equation immediately come to mind. Since life needs a place to arise, the availability of such places becomes one of the most important considerations. Even though the rate of star formation is currently not determined exactly, based on evidence, it could be estimated to be relatively high. In our own galaxy, star formation can be observed in the frontal areas of the spiraling a...
  • Orion Nebula
    1,023 words
    The Orion Nebula contains one of the brightest star clusters in the night sky. With a magnitude of 4, this nebula is easily visible from the Northern Hemisphere during the winter months. It is surprising, therefore, that this region was not documented until 1610 by a French lawyer named Nicholas-Claude Fabric de Peiresc. On March 4, 1769, Charles Messier inducted the Orion Nebula, M 42, into his list of stellar objects. Then, in 1771, Messier released his list of objects for its first publicatio...
  • Planet Orbits Its Star
    1,203 words
    In the past 8 years, astronomers have discovered over 100 probable planets around other stars. According to the standard model of planet formation (pre-1996), many of these planets are too close to their stars to have formed in their present locations. This has lead to a few astronomers suggesting that these are not, in fact, planets at all. Rather, the scientists argue, these objects are really small stars. Because our most successful detection method only gives a lower limit on the object's ma...
  • Clyde Tombaugh The Discoverer Of Pluto
    1,999 words
    "To the Stars Through Difficulties" is the state motto of Kansas, the place where Clyde Tombaugh the discoverer of Pluto grew up. But it is impossible to talk about Tombaugh without speaking of Percival Lowell who first noticed that there was an anonymous ninth planet beyond Neptune, and he called it Planet X. These two ingenious and analytical men who never worked physically together were honorable and true to the work and effort put forth to find Pluto (Planet X). The motto of Kansas is an app...
