    land on the moon. This shows that if we had not done those Apollo missions, we might of still have not landed on the moon and still be trying to explore space from Earth. Another example is, the hubble space telescope takes pictures every day of, stars, planets, and even, black holes. This shows that eventually we will get a picture of a planet that we can colonize on. My third example is, satellites have helped us find new discoveries of Earth and they are also used for electronic maps. This…

    history of the world. This means Primeval nebula means a cloud of gas and dust in outer space a long time ago. It was how people think the galaxy was created. This is saying that the universe was always there. The galaxy was created. Then all the stars and planets were created. They were all made from small clouds of dust and gas in space. The nebular hypothesis is the most widely used theory for the formation of the Solar System. It suggests that the Solar System was formed of nebulous…

    shows many patterns and properties of stars based on plotting them by their temperature on the surface and their light they emit, or luminosity. Created in 1912, the HR diagram was made by two astronomers, Ejnar Hertzsprung and Henry Russell who found patterns with stars’ properties. The Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram shows how every star goes through different evolutionary stages. These evolutionary stages are based on the internal structure of the star and how the star produces energy. On the…

    laid asphalt. The Exoplanet is two times less reflective than our own moon, which has an albedo of 0.12. WASP-12b orbits a sun like star named WASP-12A, which is about 1400 light years away. The Exoplanet's radius is almost twice the size of Jupiter and has a year of over just one earth day. WASP-12b is categorized as a hot Jupiter. Because it is so close to its parent star, WASP-12b has been stretched into an egg shape and its surface temperature is 2600 degrees Celsius. Astronomers think the…

    the radiation of ordinary stars, AGNs are prominent across the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Thus, astronomers needed to look beyond the visual regime to see their full potential. Recent technological advancements, such as satellite deployment, have enabled astronomers to explore energies once unattainable. In addition to the showing in a wide range of energies, AGNs also change in brightness on time scales from minutes to decades. It's no wonder then that some stars once thought to be…

    There are many astronomers out there, but the one person that stood out to me was Edwin Hubble. It is because of Edwin, we now have a better understanding on the distance in the universe and that it’s expanding. His research was very remarkable that he had a telescope with his name. Since Edwin established the scale of the universe and laid the observational basis, he helped us understand what are galaxies like in the universe. To start off, Edwin noticed a Cepheid variable in the Andromeda…

    Hertzsprung-Russel Diagram, or the temperature of stars relative to its luminosity, the theoretical H-R diagram. Stars have specific evolutionary stages based on their initial mass, dictating its internal structure and means of energy production. The phases in stellar evolution correspond to alterations in luminosity and temperature. There are three main regions present on the diagram, the most dominant is the main sequence which is where approximately 90% of all known stars lie and extends from…
