  • Analysis Of Gamma-Ray Bursts

    released is equal to what would take the Sun nearly ten-billion years to produce. There is no other process in the universe able to produce this much energy (Bhat, 2011). Additionally, if a GRB was able to distribute itself in all directions equally, such as the way a star does, its luminosity would be that of the combined brightness of a million galaxies such as our Milky Way, albeit briefly (Bennett et al.,…

  • Cat's Eye Nebula Research Paper

    it was the first nebula to be studied spectroscopically by the astronomer William Huggins in 1864; this study revealed the distinctions between PNe and the other gaseous nebulae. When Huggins studied the spectrum of NGC-6543, he found that the spectrum is dominated by discontinuous lines, emission spectrum, rather than continuous like in the stellar spectrum. The first identified line was the hydrogen Balmer line (H). This discontinuous spectrum confirms Herschel’s idea that the PN gets its…

  • Radiation Spectroscopy Essay

    Since the first planet orbiting a star other than our Sun was discovered almost 20 years ago, astronomers have detected over 3,000 exoplanets. Going forward, exoplanetary scientists have two major goals: detecting smaller, more Earth-like planets, and characterizing particular planets of interest. With the advent of the extremely large telescope (ELT) era soon approaching, these two goals will become increasingly intertwined as better instruments give us the power to study the atmospheres of…

  • H-R Diagram Lab: Plotting The Star

    Lab-Plotting the Stars Part I: Introduction 1) One method scientists use to measure the distance of the star is called parallax. Parallax shift is when closer stars shift positions against the farthest stars. In order for astronomers to measure that distance, they measure the distance of the shift, also considering the diameter of the Erath’s orbit. Then the angle of the parallax is measured. The smaller the angle of the parallax shift is, the farther away the star is from the earth 2)…
