This process creates huge quantities of what astronomers call dust—actually a complex organic molecule similar to soot. Try some of our freeze-dried Astronaut Ice Cream for an out of this world taste, test your students' knowledge with Constellation Knowledge Cards, or take a safe look at the sun using our Sun-Spotter. You wouldn’t think that a structure half the size of the galaxy itself could hide from us, but that’s exactly what we found out: Two vast bubbles of gas are being blown out of the galaxy’s center, and they’re each 50,000 light years long!

So it is not surprising that even simple animals can use multiple cues to steer by. Study of the planets, the Sun, the stars, and the rarified matter in space should all be profoundly influenced by measurements from balloons, rockets, probes and satellites. ... It is dangerous to look at the sun through a telescope, but the moon in all its detail can be a fascinating sight for a beginner. Apollo 11 takes off on the first manned flight to the moon with Neil A.

Astronomer Vera Rubin highlighted this discrepancy in the 1970s and since then, astronomers have verified time and again that stars on the outskirts of a galaxy rotate around the centre at the same speed as stars closer the centre. Many people joke that if there was ever a nuclear holocaust, only cockroaches would survive the fallout, but it turns out that the pests would likely be joined at the end of the world by a microscopic neighbor called the tardigrade.

Try to find one interesting fact to share with the class. The core instrument package came to include a large-field-of-view near-infrared camera (NIRCam) and a multi-object near-infrared spectrograph (NIRSpec), primarily for investigating the earliest stars and galaxies; a general-purpose mid-infrared camera and spectrograph for observing dust-shrouded objects in the Milky Way; and a fine guidance sensor and tunable-filter imager to support the other three.

Students can learn about the Sun how to observe it and also join a solar observation team. Student preferences will be taken into account in setting up the groups but it will not normally be possible to transfer later on between groups. Your team must analyze the different planets and decide on which planet to colonize. I’ll explain — I mean, duh, it’s what I do — but to cut to the chase, what they found is that there are lots of teeny, faint galaxies very far away that have gone undetected.

Study after study has shown that these black holes have a symbiotic relationship with their host galaxies, too, growing along with them as each formed billions of years ago. While initially there will be focused effort to consolidate information at a single site (critical mass for initial operations), the architecture will allow for distribution of this metadata across multiple sites. Radio Astronomy can be interpreted as existing within this avant-garde tradition.
