Planets couldn't form until the first stars ran out of fuel and exploded into supernovas, about 14 billion years ago. It is likely the colonies would be located by proximity to such resources. Hand Lens A 10-power folding magnifier in a metal case. Nuclear fusion – The process by which two atomic nuclei combine to form a heavier atomic nucleus; this is the energy source that causes most stars to shine.

Position angle – Direction in the heavens one celestial object from another, measured eastward from due north. I worry that as powerful as this hurricane is, we will probably see more like it in the coming years. In the second month: At 33 days after launch we will turn on and operate the Fine Guidance Sensor, then NIRCam and NIRSpec. Find out why they turn out flat when they have all of 3D space to choose from. And even if the disruption of the Earth's magnetic field did let all the microwaves from space through, you wouldn't even notice!

It's yet another example of a widely-circulated e-mail containing information that was once true but which continues to be forwarded around year after year, long after the information it contains has become outdated. On 1996 Aug 6, David McKay et al announced what they thought might be evidence of ancient Martian microorganisms in the meteorite ALH84001. He knew that the Earth was round, and believed that it was free-floating and unsupported.

Jemison says she was inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. but to her King’s dream wasn’t an elusive fantasy but a call to action. “Too often people paint him like Santa — smiley and inoffensive,” says Jemison. “But when I think of Martin Luther King, I think of attitude, audacity, and bravery.” Jemison thinks the civil rights movement was all about breaking down the barriers to human potential. “The best way to make dreams come true is to wake up,” says Jemison. This is epitomized in this Hubble image that is part of its Frontier Fields program to probe the far universe.

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.

An extrasolar planet is one that’s outside of our solar system, and astronomers believed in their existence for a long, long time. It's not like discovering gold or inventing the wheel.
