Our research covers a wide range of subjects, from the behaviour of atoms at temperatures close to absolute zero to the merger of galaxies many light years away. And for 2011 it has requested another $60 million — even as rumours are swirling that still more cash infusions will be required (see 'Cost curve' ). Hubble: A New Beginning - Webcast - Presentation at the Library of Congress by Dave Leckrone, astrophysicist, NASA Hubble Space Program. For some of you, though, the time involved in a shopping trip, the cost of printing out forty-odd pages, and the effort of getting them all hole-punched and placed in order in the notebook is a bigger expenditure than simply purchasing a ready-to-use notebook.

We're asking you to help us find and draw bubbles in beautiful infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope. S-Bursts (short bursts of radiation) have durations of a few thousandths to a few hundredths of a second and can occur at rates of tens of bursts per second. And that makes you seem very small, and if you have difficult things in you life it is nice to think that they are what is called negligible, which means they are so small you don’t have to take them into account when you are calculating something.” “Two thousand years ago the night sky looked completely different, and so when you get right down to it, the Greek conceptions of star signs as related to birth dates are grossly inaccurate for today's day and age.

It helps to have the kids align the Star Wheel and textbook star chart to the same angle as the Constellation Lab. I will read your work ... all the more willingly because I have for many years been a partisan of the Copernican view because it reveals to me the causes of many natural phenomena that are entirely incomprehensible in the light of the generally accepted hypothesis. Learn about our natural world through the inner vision of nature photographer Gary D. Since then, more than 1,600 teams of students and interested individuals have purchased non-profit radio telescope kits and are learning radio astronomy by building and operating a radio telescope.

Daniel Pink: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us – Video – Research reveals what really, truly motivates us. The judge sentenced the two earthlings to fifteen years, and Jupiter was a bit shocked when he was sentenced to ten years. "But your honour" said Jupiter, "I didn't even take part in the robbery!" Over the years, the hardest part of writing about these photos is simply picking them; there are so many accomplished astrophotographers out there, and it gets to the point where I only want to feature something unusual — an odd framing of a familiar object, some deep sky galaxy usually unseen, or a balance of filters and exposures not generally used.

The further South you go the fewer stars will be circumpolar. We have science fair projects about energy, weather, aerodynamics, and much more! My two most amazing experiences in this capacity are these: first, in 2001, I was asked to brief the US President on data mining; and second, in 2011, I was the conference keynote speaker at the Medicare and Medicaid Statistics Conference. To maintain a leading role in the ALMA era, the SMA project has embarked on an ambitious, staged, strategic upgrade to dramatically improve its sensitivity and observing speed.
