Field of view – The area of the sky visible through a telescope or binoculars. Remember when radio was all the rage in the entertainment world? MAVEN will reach Mars in time to join the investigation of a comet that will soon brush past the planet.

This is a very basic property of magnetism: it's caused by moving charges. Meanwhile, astronomers are busy showing us sweet pictures of distant planets and playing around with telescopes the size of buildings. Multicultural astronomy – the variety of ways cultures of the past and present have observed, recorded, interpreted, and made use of astronomy to structure their lives, and in some cases satisfy their curiosity about the universe.

Now, you may read this wanting only an astronomy review, but like I say sometimes, it's my website. ;-) I will mix in some personal comments with the astronomy parts. [Note (added February 28, 2001): about half the population of this planet has emailed me about the scene in this movie involving the M&Ms representing DNA.

A radio galaxy is an active galaxy that is very luminous in the radio portion of the spectrum, and is emitting immense plumes or lobes of gas. All NASA sourced material is public domain. Magnetic field: Mars currently has no global magnetic field, but there are regions of its crust that can be at least 10 times more strongly magnetized than anything measured on Earth, remnants of an ancient global magnetic field.

Arthur Eddington (1882-1944, British) proved observationally that Einstein's prediction of light bending near the extreme mass of a star is scientifically accurate. CMBR offered further evidence in support of the Big Bang theory.

Unmanned space probes crash-landed on the Moon, sending back pictures to Earth during the descent. These particles (which contain a lot of iron oxide) absorb blue light, so the sky appears to have little blue in it and is pink/yellow to butterscotch in color. A new emissary from Earth just arrived at the Red Planet. Astrobiology is the study of the advent and evolution of biological systems in the Universe, with particular emphasis on the possibility of non-terrestrial life.

The image on the left, captured March 11 by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, shows comet C/2013 A1, also called Siding Spring, at a distance of 353 million miles from Earth. Duration: 00:30:00; File size: 27MB 477kb The asteroid that slammed into Earth 66 million years ago accelerated volcanic eruptions in India creating a double-whammy disaster that wiped out the dinosaurs. Galaxies that are very faint are hard to see. All of the stars (except the Sun) are so far away that they appear as mere points in even the largest telescopes, even though they are actually much larger than the planets.

Close binary stars can follow more complex evolutionary paths, such as mass transfer onto a white dwarf companion that can potentially cause a supernova. When a supernova 'explodes' it causes a burst of luminous radiation which can outshine an entire galaxy before fading over a period of weeks. Read and find out about the Hubble Space Telescope in this exciting book. This is caused by the constant bombardment of the atmosphere by charged particles attracted by earth’s magnetic lines.

Kinematic studies of matter in the Milky Way and other galaxies have demonstrated that there is more mass than can be accounted for by visible matter. Your weight: If you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 38 pounds on Mars. And even if the disruption of the Earth's magnetic field did let all the microwaves from space through, you wouldn't even notice! For this reason, much effort is expended in trying to understand the physics of these components. [94] Astronomy and astrophysics have developed significant interdisciplinary links with other major scientific fields.

This link takes you away from Space Place, but it's very easy to come back! Darwin demonstrated the falsity of this dogma. NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has detected superhot blobs of gas, each twice as massive as the planet Mars, being ejected near a dying star. Einstein's Dream: A Theory of Everything. And the book is now “required reading” at Johnson, home of NASA’s human space exploration program. It carries five instruments: aster, ceres, misr, modi, mopitt. Outside that is a dark gap, which is exactly what you’d expect from a forming planet.
