- Looking at Orion is more than just looking at an area that is easy to recognize in the night sky. Orion is seething with activity and illustrates a clear and concise picture, of how stars are formed. It gives us the ability to compare different types of stars and most importantly, it’s right next door to Earth, astronomically speaking.
- Orion is a constellation that is visible in the center of the sky during the winter months. Orion is accompanied by his two dogs, Canus Major and Canus Minor. The most distinguishing feature is the three stars in a row which make up his belt. Below that, there are three stars and a nebula , that make up his sword.
- A star is a large celestial body composed of gravitationally contained hot gases giving off electromagnetic radiation, especially light. The sun is actually a star. Unlike the sun the stars seem to be fixed, but in fact stars are in rapid motion, but their distances are so great no relative changes can be seen with the naked eye.
- Is it more important to protect the icons of our country, or to ensure the right to extremely offensive expressions? The issue of flag burning asks America just that question: Should America tolerate, or condemn? Flag burning does seem to be the ultimate act of symbolic protest used to express dissension against the American
- There was patronage inside of patronage; therefore Galileo did not always see what he claimed to have seen, his associates might have though. Since patronage was the way of the world at this time as Galileo knew it made no sense for someone to swim against the current, for they would simply become tired and unsuccessful.
- Throughout history different cultures have let astronomy shape their beliefs and customs. One such culture that has traditions rich in astronomy is the Japanese culture. Since I am half Japanese, I thought I would discuss some of the traditions found in Japanese culture.
- Odysseus, in Greek legend, a Greek hero, ruler of the island of Ithaca and one of the leaders of the Greek army during the Trojan War Homer’s Odyssey recounts Odysseus’s adventures and ultimate return home ten years after the fall of Troy Initially, Odysseus was mentioned as the son of Laertes, king of Ithaca, although in later tradition Sisyphus, king of Corinth, was considered his real father, his mother having later married Laertes At first Odysseus refused to accompany the Greeks to Troy, feigning madness by sowing his fields with salt, but the Greeks placed his son Telemachus in front of
- As a companion piece to the articles outlining the histories of the eight major film studios, this survey examines four low-budget studios. They produced mostly Grade-"B" films: genre efforts made quickly and cheaply for targeted audiences — usually young ones, whether it was the fare aimed at juvenile cowboy enthusiasts, provided by Monogram, PRC (Producers Releasing Company), and Republic during the 1930s and '40s, or the older teen crowds sold on AIP's (American International Pictures) horror or rock & roll movies (sometimes, horror and rock & roll!) of the 1950s and '60s.
- Over one hundred years ago that “dirty little coward” Bob Ford killed Jesse Woodson James in his home in St. Joseph, Missouri. Today, the typical person has derived much, if not all, knowledge about the life and times of Jesse James from the movies. Beginning with Jesse James Under the Black Flag in 1921 starring Jesse Edwards James (referred to as Jesse James Jr.
- George W. Bush came out of his national convention with a significant lead over Al Gore. One poll put the margin at 17 points. While this is reassuring to his supporters, it is a lead that could quickly evaporate. In 1988, Democrat Michael Dukakis held a 17 point lead over Republican George Bush and lost the election.
- The Great Pyramids of Ancient Egypt are the most magnificent and amazing man-made structures to have ever been erected. They are the only ones still in existence from the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The pyramids were created some 4 years ago, and to this day many still exist.
- There is one simple way to classify the difference between the modern and the pre-modern, and that would be to separate them by years. Unfortunately this would not be cut and dried; it would be a rough estimate because no one really knows when the change took place, or if there even was a change.
- You pat my back, I ll pat yours is an underlying theme in many of the covenants and promises that he makes with Adam, Noah, Abraham, and other humans.
- The mathematical definition of the twentieth century corresponds to a hundred year period with a strictly defined beginning and an end. However, the picture differs when we look at the issue in a critical perspective. For most historians and social scientists, our century is characterized by vast and rapid changes in social, economical and political institutions.
- The massive stone pyramid met all these criteria. However, there was still the problem of supplying the king with essentials. Since entombing a never-ending supply of food and servants was not very practical, the Egyptians decided on the principal of “substitution by means of a representation.
- The Milky Way is the place we call home, as well as about 100 billion other stars It looks very much like other spiral galaxies when viewed from above There are spiral arms and a nucleus Viewed from the side, it is about 140,000 LY in width and the nucleus (core) is about 20,000 LY tall The entire galaxy travels at around 900,000 km/hr And it takes 25 x 109 to rotate completly The Sun can be found rather far from the center of the galaxy, halfway to the edge of visible matter along the Orion spiral arm The Sun is revolving at a speed of half a million miles per hour around the center of the Ga
- If you have an imagination, let it run free.” 9-11 – Steven King, 1963 The King of Terror Stephen Edwin King is one of today’s most popular and best selling writers. King combines the elements of psychological thrillers, science fiction, the paranormal, and detective themes into his stories.
- Moving picture booksThreatened for the best part of three decades by spending cuts in schools and libraries combined with the rise of new technology and changing family life, children’s publishing had been rattled to its bones. Not any more. After years trying slavishly to follow other media, especially television, by becoming ever shorter and more contemporary, the tables have been turned: film, TV and even radio are now looking to children’s books for the next big thing.
- The Orion Nebula contains one of the brightest star clusters in the night sky. With a magnitude of 4, this nebula is easily visible from the Northern Hemisphere during the winter months. It is surprising, therefore, that this region was not documented until 1610 by a French lawyer named Nicholas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc.
- Every culture known to history and anthropology has seen in the heavens distinctive patterns, called constellations, and formed by the stars. Constellations are usually comprised of bright stars that appear close to each other. Oriental cultures (the ancient Chinese, for example) formed intricate patterns from some of the faintest stars, creating hundreds of constellations where the West saw only a few.
