Horizons Unlimited: This wonderful education center and museum provides hands-on programs for students in the areas of history and the physical and biological sciences. Even if the universe is spatially infinite, photons from very distant galaxies simply do not have the time to travel to Earth because of the finite speed of light. Most people are familiar with the 11-year sunspot cycle, which nears it maximum in the early part of 2000.

This is going to be big - think spacetime plus one. Bruce Betts on Twitter, or Facebook, or You can view the archived versions of each 2016 class along with descriptions of what is covered in each class below. I contend that expansion of space is of itself not tenable as a mechanism for the expansion of the universe. Boulders are a sign that the impact was powerful enough that it excavated rock from beneath the regolith (the lunar 'soil') and so by keeping an eye out for these we can begin to map the depth of the regolith across the surface of the Moon.

Scientists at facilities like the SANSA station in Hermanus use ground and space based observatories to help predict the state of the space weather and mitigate their detrimental effects. A major revision is required in our understanding of the Milky Way Galaxy, according to an international team of astronomers led by Professor Noriyuki Matsunaga of the University of Tokyo. Telescopes at Palomar Observatory are used for both optical and infrared astronomy.

Its current long orbital period (around 860 years) suggests that its source is in the Oort Cloud, and it was nudged comparatively recently into an orbit that brings it closer to the Sun. The dates for these are: There may be an additional interview day, according to needs. Noticeable in the image are the lovely bluish clouds that reflect the youthful starlight. A problem with deep mines is that the pressure of the overlying rocks tends to collapse the hole.

The origin of galactic cosmic rays has not yet been conclusively identified, but they are thought to be produced in stellar processes such as supernova explosions, perhaps with additional acceleration occurring in the interstellar regions. (For additional information on interstellar matter, see Milky Way Galaxy: The general interstellar medium .) The central region of the Milky Way Galaxy is so heavily obscured by dust that direct observation has become possible only with the development of astronomy at nonvisual wavelengths—namely, radio, infrared, and, more recently, X-ray and gamma-ray wavelengths.
