  • Slide Motion Lab Report

    Slide Motion Describe the movement of the slide as you move the slide toward/ away from you. Describe the movement of the slide as you move the slide from side to side. Looking at the slide, when the slide moves toward me, the image would seem to move away. Vice versa when the slide moves away, it would come towards me. Similarly, when the slide was moved from right to left, the image would go to the opposite side. So going right the image would seem to go left, and when the slide was moved to…

  • The Hubble Telescope Essay

    The Hubble telescope is a telescope named after famous astronomer Edwin Hubble. It orbits in space 380 miles above Earth’s surface, traveling 5 miles per second, finishing an orbit around Earth in 97 minutes.

  • Kepler Telescope Essay

    The Kepler Telescope main instrument is a photometer. This instrument measures the brightness of stars within its field of view. Data is then gathered and analyzed to detect any variations or deviations of light which is caused by the transits of plants of host stars. These dips in light help in detecting planets in "Habitable Zones". Gliese-581g The planet Gliese 581g is one of six possible planets in the constellation Libra. This exoplanet was discovered in late September 2010. The main reason…

  • Isaac Newton Telescope

    Isaac Newton started working in the optics field in 1666. Then he taught at Cambridge university. He started refracting light to produce a multicolor spectrum, that you can reverse back into a light with another prism. As an outcome in his analysis, he began to speculate color is the outcome of items connecting with previously colored light. instead of items developing color on their own, that is acknowledged as "Newton's theory of color." he also finished the refracting telescope lens will…

  • The Kepler Spacecraft: The Huble Space Telescope

    when the planet passes in front of its parent star without some type of space telescope. Thus, in March 2009, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), launched the Kepler spacecraft. The primary mission of this new instrument was to investigate the diversity and structure of planetary systems. The spacecraft moves in a slightly slower, Earth-trailing orbit in order to ensure that it did not interfere with the region of the sky it was observing. The success of the Kepler has…
