Extra-Terrestrial Civilizations Introduction Ever wondered what lies beyond our own Solar System, beyond our furthest planet Pluto, beyond what our most powerful telescopes can project. With the latest in Technology and Sciences, we (The Human Race) have only chipped off a flake of the great Pillar of Technology and Civilization. The question is: Are we alone? Are human beings the only possessors of eyes that search the night sky for new galaxies. The only builders of devices that extend the natural senses. The only owners of minds that think and derive the meanings of everything around them? And the answer is just possibly: We are not alone! There are others that see, touch, feel, smell, an ...

Sky & Telescope Patrick Sullivan 2nd hour Astronomy Mr. Wessling Magazine Report Sky & Telescope The Future of the Universe The magazine Sky & Telescope is a very helpful magazine for beginning and amateur astronomers. The magazine contains information on new star clusters, constellations, galaxies, and even possible new planets. It gives a more in-depth look at whats going on outside our galaxy. This magazine is also helpful in showing astronomers new ways to look at stars. Certain articles can help with finding focal points, which elements of the spectrum to use to view certain stars, and how to get the best photo images as possible. Sky & Telescope also offers a wide range of different pi ...

- Stars - 2,009 words
Stars A star is a large ball of hot gas, thousands to millions of kilometers in diameter, emitting large amounts of radiant energy from nuclear reactions in its interior. Stars differ fundamentally from planets in that they are self-luminous, whereas planets shine by reflected sunlight. Except for the SUN, which is the nearest star, stars appear only as points of light, even in the largest telescopes, because of their distance. The brightest stars have long been given names. Most of the familiar names originated with the ancient Greeks or with later Arab astronomers; an entirely different system was used by the Chinese, starting hundreds of years earlier, about 1000 BC. Polaris, the North St ...

... jects with a starlike composition but too small to initiate nuclear reactions may also exist in the universe, helping to account for the "missing mass" of COSMOLOGY theories (see BROWN DWARF). Mass More than half of all stars are BINARY STARS--two or more stars that orbit one another. About 100 orbits have been measured accurately. These measurements provide perhaps the most important characteristic of a star: its mass. From Newton's Laws of gravitation and motion, it is known that two highly massive stars must orbit (one around the other) faster than two stars of lesser mass at the same distance apart; thus the masses can be calculated from the orbit size and the period of the orbit. If ...

- The Night Sky - 3,925 words
... The Night Sky Long ago, people looked into the night sky and wondered what they were looking at? How far away are those twinkles in the sky? Could they all be stars, or maybe, could they be something else? What makes certain lights brighter than others, and how does distance affect their intensity? These questions and other interesting facts will be reviewed in the following pages. One of the most common curiosities regarding the night sky is distance, which can be very hard to determine. Because space is so vast, scientists must use mathematical methods to determine how far away, how large, and how bright something actually measures. However, because of the constantly changing position ...

Ufo's We once believed that Earth is the only planet in the Universe that supports life.
