Apollo 15 marked the first use of the Lunar Rover, a jeeplike vehicle. Students learn about Astronomical Units and conduct a walking distance tour of the solar system. Radio telescopes are directional radio antennas used for radio astronomy. Damocloid – An elliptical shaped asteroid with a comet-like orbit. Until now, people have assumed that the disk of the Milky Way spins at a high speed, while the enormous reservoir of hot gas in the halo is stationary.

Milwaukee: Gareth Stevens Publishing, 1996 See and read about huge telescopes, airplanes in space, landing on Mars, and a probe to the sun. Sometimes the gravity of a planet can attract enough material from around it that it carves a gap in the disk, similar to the gaps in Saturn’s rings. His writings claim that advanced civilizations exist or once existed on the Moon, Mars and on some of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, and that NASA and the United States government have conspired to keep these facts secret.

Thanks to coordinated multi-satellite observations and a worldwide network of magnetic sensors and cameras, close study of auroras has become possible over recent decades. CMBR is a type of radiation that’s present in very small quantities (hence the term background) all throughout space, and is believed to be leftover from when the universe was in a very early stage of growth. Visit Mars and all the planets in the solar system; learn about the different types of electronic photos that are taken from space; compare planetary data and successful interplanetary spacecraft; get the names and addresses of space organizations to write to for more information.

A new paper just published in the prestigious Astrophysical Journal makes a stunning claim: There are ten times as many galaxies in the Universe as we previously thought. Mars Pathfinder landed on Mars on July 4, 1997, broadcasting photos. Viking 1 didn’t unambiguously find life on Mars (although some still argue that it might have), but it did rack up an impressive series of firsts, including the gathering of the first Martian soil sample using the spacecraft’s robot arm and a special biological laboratory.

Originally developed for astronomy, CCD’s are now used in most cameras, webcams and cell phones. — The computer language Forth, originally developed for the 36-foot telescope on Kitt Peak is now used by FedEx to track packages. — AT&T uses IRAF — software written by the National Optical Astronomy Observatory — to analyze computer systems. — Kodak film, originally created by astronomers studying the sun, is used extensively by the medical and industrial industries, photographers and artists. — Space-based telescopes have advanced defense satellites, which require identical technology and hardware. — Global Positioning System satellites rely on astronomical objects — quasars and distant galaxies — to determine accurate positions. — Technology gained from imaging X-rays is now used to monitor fusion — where two atomic nuclei combine to form a heavier nucleus — that may prove to be our answer for clean energy.

Other than the boring and 'so what?' questionable Bill Nye Science Guy exhibit, a veritable monument to narcissistic excess, the space and astronomy exhibits have languished; the facility seems to be suffering decay; the planetarium has a smell of mold and mildew; and as a member there, I can't for the life of me understand what rabbit hole the center's budget is pouring into. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - weren’t created at the beginning of time.
