This document is a collection of screen captures from missions I've flown. Map the surface of Mercury by marking and measuring craters and linear surface features in images from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft. The difference in gravity between your feet and head could be millions of times the Earth’s gravity! The size of the dust grains causes blue light to be reflected more efficiently than red light, so these reflection nebulae frequently appear blue in color. the rotation or orbital motion of an object in a clockwise direction when viewed from the north pole of the ecliptic; moving in the opposite sense from the great majority of solar system bodies. fine-grained extrusive igneous rock, commonly with phenocrysts of quartz and feldspar in a glassy groundmass. a fracture or crack in a planet's surface caused by extension.

Johnson, George Miss Leavitt’s Stars: The Untold Story of the Woman Who Discovered How to Measure the Universe. 2005, Atlas/Norton. Throughout much of the world�s history, people did not understand the wind currents and how they whirl about in circuits all over the earth. The guide also suggests resources that can help you emphasize multicultural concepts and create cross-curricular ties.

Example: Nine of the top twenty Google Image hits for ― "Eagle Nebula" are of the same classic Hubble image, but none of them point to the ― "home" web page for the image. Such bodies are sometimes referred to as Trojans. Please answer the questions the best you can. The result is an image that is staggering in both its beauty and profundity. Another really nice feature on his website is “This week’s sky at a glance”. It is not conclusive yet, but the NASA believes the Mars Pathfinder has found proof of life on Mars.

You can tour other solar systems and return to our own by selecting our sun (Select Sol), read summaries of solar system objects and then display them, or see a list of stars currently known to have planets orbiting them. Stars as massive as this will have luminosities about one million times greater than that of the Sun. Notebook keeping is simply a system for assisting your child to document what he has learned in each lesson. I continued with a Master's degree in physics using the VLA to map the radio emission from the nearby radio galaxy M87.

But even for this rocket, this was no ordinary flight. Although it is used to view distant galaxies, a single radio telescope cannot produce very sharp pictures of objects in space. Thermal emissions are caused by the motion of charged objects such as molecules and atoms. The lab can be done just with the star charts but I recommend your students use their Star Wheels as well. The real time active tracking & video links with current spaceflights should not be missed.
