  • Distance And Age Of M52

    The upper point on the main sequence which is the most densely populated with stars where the red giants seem to begin is called the turnoff point; the exact location of turnoff point indicates the age of the cluster. Deriving the distance and age of M52 We have already identified main sequence, turnoff point, and giant red for M52 shown in figure by comparing with Figure 1. A best fit line this will help to find the distance to open cluster M52 by using the techniques of best fit line. In…

  • The Drake Equation: Mediocrity

    civilizations within the universe right now. R* is the approximate rate of the formation of stars within our galaxy. Fp represents the fraction of stars in the Milky Way that are companioned by other planets. Ne takes the place of the number of planets per sun-like star that have habitable ecospheres, which is what allows for the chemical evolution of life. Fl is what breaks up the planets per sun-like star which obtain inhabiting ecospheres and separates them from the ones that actually do…

  • Polio's Influence On Society

    Astronomy is an ongoing process. It is always changing and improving as we discover new stellar objects and use more advanced technology. For example, people once believed that the Earth was flat, and the sun and other planets orbited around us. As we advanced in technology, we proved both of these ideas to be false. Even today there is still work to be done, ideas and theories to confirm and disprove, and plenty of other things to explore. One scientific discovery that influence society was…

  • Kinetic Energy Vs Potential Energy Essay

    First, Energy has multiple forms that can switch different states. The two most common forms of energy are, Kinetic and Potential Energy. Kinetic Energy is the energy created when an object is in motion. It can be transferred between two objects if the object has enough energy, therefor it can be from of a collision. Kinetic energy can also be elastic or inelastic energy, however Potential Energy is an energy, but is potentially created before Kinetic Energy. Both types of energy are measured in…

  • Thermonuclear Fusion Essay

    1. What is meant by the luminosity of the Sun? a. The luminosity of the Sun is the total amount of energy that is emitted by the Sun every second. (Slater) 2. What is thermonuclear fusion? Why is this fusion fundamentally unlike the burning of a log in a fireplace? a. Thermonuclear fusion is the conversion of hydrogen nuclei into helium nuclei. b. The chemical reaction of burning a log on Earth would cause the outer electrons of the atoms involved to rearrange themselves. But, this change…

  • The Protoplanet Hypothesis

    Space is extraordinary! It is full of planets, stars, and many other things. There are several different hypotheses that were proposed on how the solar system was created. One of these hypotheses is the Nebular that was formulated by Pierre-Simon de Laplace in 1796. Many years later, in the 1900s, the Protoplanet hypothesis was proposed by Carl von Weizsäcker and Gerard Kuiper. Forest Moulton and Thomas Chamberlin proposed the Planetesimal hypothesis in 1905. The Nebular hypothesis starts…

  • Neutron Stars: The Collapse Of Stars

    During their existence, stars form when the density of interstellar gas and dust, which form molecular clouds, reaches a certain point, and die by collapsing and turning into a white dwarf or a neutron star. Stars can fail and become a brown dwarf. Stars form when the density of the concentration of molecular clouds collapses and reaches a certain point. These regions are usually extremely cold and contain carbon and hydrogen. However, not all materials from the clouds form stars. Some of the…
