21: Creative Writing: Utopia Z
... a Recreation Dome. Utopia Z, also has a Court and Government Dome which settles problems for the citizens. The citizens on Utopia Z, have to go through a very straight-forward, but effective system using "stars" as ranking. So in conclusion, Utopia Z can almost give every to the citizens, that they could get on Earth. We can garantee that the citizens will enjoy and nice relaxing, no stress, life on ... healthy environment. They live in a very simple, but effective way. The homes in Utopia Z are divided into two different sections. One is a average, with normal area and the other is for four stars and greater. The four stars and five live neer the bottom while the three stars and less live up higher. Even though this is a non biest colony people that have not followed the rules and or break a ...

Uneducated. No skills. No merits. No recommendations. A short description given by the author Alfred Bester of his main character as the stereotypical Common Man of humanity. A man ...
23: Extra-Terrestrial Civilizations
... that although there may be life on several worlds other than Earth. In the book "Extraterrestrial Civilizations" by Isaac Isamov. An early astronomer by the name of Thomas Wright in 1750 who began counting the stars in the universe in sectors and/or quadrants. He noticed that as soon as he started to get nearer to the milky way the more stars per quadrant there were so we came up with a rough chart of the galaxy and derived a system to count the ammount of stars in the universe. So this gives us the first note... Ä Ammount of Stars in the Galaxy = 300,000,000 In Outer Space, there a Nebular Clouds that form all the stars, planetary systems, ...
24: Life On Other Planets?
... equation consists of several factors that are used to determine how possible it is for life to develop somewhere in outer space, beyond Earth's boundaries. The first factor being the rate of formation of stars (stars per year) with a large enough "habitable zone" and long enough lifetime to be suitable for the development of intelligent life is considered. This simply means how many stars exist and how long they last before they “die”. Each star then, must contain a “habitable zone” where the temperatures are suitable so that water will exist in liquid form (SETI). Secondly, the fraction ...
25: Our Solar System at a Glance
Our Solar System at a Glance INTRODUCTION From our small world we have gazed upon the cosmic ocean for untold thousands of years. Ancient astronomers observed points of light that appeared to move among the stars. They called these objects planets, meaning wanderers, and named them after Roman deities -- Jupiter, king of the gods; Mars, the god of war; Mercury, messenger of the gods; Venus, the god of love and beauty, and Saturn, father of Jupiter and god of agriculture. The stargazers also observed comets with sparkling tails, and meteors or shooting stars apparently falling from the sky. Science flourished during the European Renaissance. Fundamental physical laws governing planetary motion were discovered, and the orbits of the planets around the Sun were calculated. In the 17th century, astronomers ... as it speeds past the target! To help prevent such a mishap, a subsystem of small thrusters is used to control spacecraft. The thrusters are linked with devices that maintain a constant gaze at selected stars. Just as Earth's early seafarers used the stars to navigate the oceans, spacecraft use stars to maintain their bearings in space. With the subsystem locked onto fixed points of reference, flight controllers can ...
26: Supernova
... having an enormously large density and consisting mainly of neutrons--or a PULSAR, a pulsating neutron star. There are two common types of supernovas, called type I and type II. Type I occurs among old stars of small mass, whereas type II occurs among very young stars of large mass. It is not known how a small-mass star can release the very large amounts of energy needed to explain type I supernovas. Scientists generally believe that this must involve binary systems--two stars revolving around each other. In such a system one of the stars is a WHITE DWARF, a small, dense star that is near the end of its nuclear burning phase. After attracting matter from ...
27: Supernovas
... supernova-spawned neutrinos of 20 million electron voltes or less interact with matter. These neutrinos include low energy electrons that give off light and can be detected in pure water. Supernovas are massive exploding giant stars. When the explosion occurs, the resulting illumination can be as bright as an entire galaxy. One of the most energetic explosive happenings known is a supernova. Supernovas occur at the end of a stars lifetime, when its nuclear fuel is exhausted an it is no longer supported by the release of nuclear energy. If the star is particularly massive, then its core will collapse and in so doing will release a huge amount of energy. This will cause a blast waver that ejects the stars envelope into interstellar space. The result of the collapse may be, in some cases, a rapidly rotating neutron start that can be observed many years later as a radio pulsar. As a result of ...
28: Cinematography Everything You Need To Know
... Company soon after joining it in 1912; Hal Roach founded his comedy company in 1914; and Charlie CHAPLIN probably had the best-known face in the world in 1916.^During this period the first movie stars rose to fame, replacing the anonymous players of the short films. In 1918, America's two favorite stars, Charlie Chaplin and Mary PICKFORD, both signed contracts for over $1 million. Other familiar stars of the decade included comedians Fatty ARBUCKLE and John Bunny, cowboys William S. HART and Bronco Billy Anderson, matinee idols Rudolph VALENTINO and John Gilbert, and the alluring females Theda BARA and Clara BOW. ...
29: Galileo
... results would have been very poor. Within a few months, Galileo gathered and recorded massive amounts of evidence about mountains on the moon, about the moons circling Jupiter, and about an incredibly large number of stars, especially in the Milky Way. On January 7, 1610 in Padua, Italy, Galileo happened to aim his newly developed spyglass at the planet Jupiter and discover previously unknown worlds. ³On this seventh day of January ... but also in scientific notation as he documented his observations in Italian, rather than in Latin. This provided for a much better translation of his work and findings. Galileo thought he was observing simple, fixed stars, but their position created curiosity for they lay in a straight line on Jupiter, two to the east, and one to the west. The next night, ³led by what, I do not know,² Galileo looked at the same stars again. To his amazement, they had shifted position to a straight line to the west side of Jupiter. He feared that astronomers had miscalculated the movement of the planet. Galileo could hardly wait for ...
30: ... is when Faust responds to Margaret’s question, “Do you believe in God?”(“Faust,” 29-43) Does not the heaven vault above? Is the earth not firmly based down here? And do not, friendly, Eternal stars arise? Do we not look into each others eyes, And all in you is surging To your head and heart, And weaves in timeless mystery? Unseeable, yet seen, around you?….. …For this. Feeling is all ...
