The original proof of concept was named the Predator B-001, which took to the skies in February of 2001. After the proof of concept was successful, General Atomics Aeronautical System planned to refine the system, coming up with two separate designs designated B-002 and B-003 (Whittle,2013). The Reaper is specifically built as a “Hunter-Killer” UAS, meaning its specific mission is to locate, track, and eliminate a specified target. Doing so requires the use of multiple…

  • The Periodic Table

    Discovery and Organization of the Periodic Table In order to understand the periodic table, a basic knowledge in the terminology would be very helpful. A periodic table a chart organizing elements by atomic numbers and chemical properties into groups and periods. The periodic table was created in order to easily find and classify the different elements that are known. Elements are pure substances composed of just one type of atom that cannot be broken down into anything simpler by ordinary…

  • Democritus: A Very Brief History Of The Atomic Theory

    So who is Democritus? Democritus is the first human to ever come up with the first atomic theory. Democritus was born in Greece around 460BC. He has a life spend of 90 years, he died in the year 370BC. He likes to study geometry and natural philosophy. His teacher is actually the first one to come up with the atomic theory. His teacher, Leucippus atomic theory stated that “The universe is composed of two elements: the atoms and the void in which they exist and move.” (Tangient LLC). According…

  • Albert Einstein Photoelectric Effect

    Many people in the world don 't realize that one of the greatest minds had possible learning disabilities. Albert Einstein at a younger age was labeled as dull, dyslexic, even autistic or schizophrenic. However, he overcame these “labels” and became very famous for his scientific knowledge. When Einstein was 16 years old, he always wondered what it would be like to ride his bike on a beam of light, 10 years later he came up with a special theory of relativity, which lead him to find out that…

  • Einstein's Theory Of Relativity Essay

    Special relativity came first and is based on the speed of light being constant for everyone. This was showed by experimental evidence that the speed of light did not alter as the earth spun around the sun. General Relativity simply supports the evidence that acceleration is found to distort the shape of time and space, and velocity and gravity affect time in different ways. Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, which established the association between matter, space, time and gravity.…

  • Big Travel Theory

    the true origin of the universe. Physicists decided to introduce a new phenomenon called time, and agreed that “time” was born once the Big Bang banged. Simply defined, time is the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them. In non-relativistic physics, physicists consider time a scalar quantity like mass, length, and temperature. The mass of an object is the same whether it is on Earth or in Space, and since time is considered a scalar quantity that means it is very simple…

  • Hubble's Conspiracy Theory

    in the observable universe is continuously increasing, like galaxies diverge from each other. At Hubble and his colleagues began to form the impression that the many billions of years ago in our days talking about 15 - 20 billion of the universe matter was concentrated in a very small volume with a fantastically high density, many orders of magnitude superior to the density of matter in the atomic nucleus . Suddenly for reasons which are built a variety of assumptions, it was what is now called…
