... around it? the answer is believed to be yes. Scientists believe that a newly formed star is immediately surrounded by a relatively dense cloud of gas and dust. In 1965, A. Poveda stated, “That new stars are likely to be obscured by this envelope of gas and dust (1).” In 1967, Davidson and Harwit agreed with Poveda and then termed this occurrence, the “ cocoon nebula” (1). Other authors have referred to ... be known as the nebula hypothesis (1). Then, in 1796, a French mathematician named Laplace, proposed that the rotating disk continued to cool and contract, forming planetary bodies (1). Also, when investigating the evolution of stars, it was proposed “that a star forms as a central condensation in an extended nebula... The outer part remains behind as the cocoon nebula (1)” . During the same study it was also indicated that under ... forming star may divide into two or more bodies orbiting each other (1). This may be the explanation as to why more than half of all star systems are binary or multiple, rather than singles stars, like ours, the sun. This same fragmentation may also form bodies too small to become stars. However, they could form into large planets, about the same size as Jupiter (1). In 1966, Low and ...
52: Black Holes
Black Holes Within our galaxy alone, there are millions upon millions of stars. Within our universe, there are millions upon millions of galaxies. Humans have known the existance of stars since they have had eyes. Although interpretations may have differed on what they were, they were always thought of as white glowing specks in the sky, but the mystery does not lie within what we can see, but what we can not see. There are billions of stars lighting the darkness of our universe, but the question lies in what happens when one of these enormous lamps burns out. Upon many speculations, one of the most facinating is the black hole theory. ...
53: Motown’s Evolution and with Emphasis on Its Women
... Four Tops or something written by the Temptations, if there was an vocal artist that served the song, well then, that was the artist who would record it. Berry found helpers in quest to create stars. Although I have yet to read of any women session players in the house band, or woman producers at Motown, there were some women assistants, who of course worked in administration, who threw themselves into ... at the lack of songs she was asked to record and asked Berry in a letter in 1967 if she could back out of her contract, which she did. She continued to perform with other stars of the times, but eventually took a break to get married to a minister. The marriage was “bad,” but lasted 18 years. Then, like so many other women of Motown, she made a comeback, inspired ... makes sense if the record label was looking for you people to control and mold. Most were poor black Detroit city girls with no knowledge of the business at all, but great dreams of being stars. Their age and their willingness to do what ever to become a star was just what Berry wanted. He could and did mold them in the assembly line of his hit factory. They all ...
54: Aleins Among Us
... s step and kept him cheerful. At the clearing he stopped, as he always did, and rested upon a large rock and observed the inky-black sky. This was his favorite spot, his secret spot. Stars shined far brighter here then they did in town, and Jim always felt like he could stay forever. He sighed, and pulled his arms behind his head and stretched out his legs. For some reason ... in a doubtful shaky voice. Clicks and pings stuttered all around the young boy, tensing and terrorizing his every muscle. All the comforts he had cherished to help him during his nightmares were gone. The stars weren’t there to look out for him. The distant lights of town no long reached him. His mother couldn’t hear him if he screamed. He felt faint. His eyes were about to flicker ... of his rock and tumbled onto the ground. He was shaking with fear. The ground was damp and cool. His head throbbed. Slowly the young boy opened his eyes and looked up. There were the stars. Millions of his stars, the stars he had always seen every night. He rose and tried to remember when he had fallen asleep. Of course I don’t remember. Jim pushed himself up on ...
55: Aristotle vs. Copernicus
... purposefulness of nature. God is perfect and therefore the aspiration of all things in the world, because all things desire to share perfection. Other movers exist as well-the intelligent movers of the planets and stars (Aristotle suggested that the number of these is "either 55 or 47"). The Prime Mover, or God, described by Aristotle is not very suitable for religious purposes, as many later philosophers and theologians have observed ... rotating spheres. These spheres bore (in order from the earth outward) the following celestial bodies: the moon, Mercury, Venus, the sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and, finally, the finite outermost sphere bearing the so-called fixed stars. (This last sphere was said to wobble slowly, thereby producing the precession of the equinoxes.)One phenomenon had posed a particular problem for cosmologists and natural philosophers since ancient times: the apparent retrograde, or backward ... on its axis (wobbles like a top) as it rotates. The Copernican theory retained many features of the cosmology it replaced, including the solid, planet-bearing spheres, and the finite outermost sphere bearing the fixed stars. On the other hand, Copernicus's heliocentric theories of planetary motion had the advantage of accounting for the apparent daily and yearly motion of the sun and stars, and it neatly explained the apparent ...
56: Drugs
... in Heroin addiction. Heroin use has doubled every year since 1992. What caused the use of heroin to increase? The growth of heroin abuse has increased in the United States because famous musicians and movie stars have been caught with the drug, because pop culture continues to make heroin seem glamorous, and because babyboomers have a relaxed view on drugs. To begin with, the abuse of heroin has increased because famous musicians and movie stars have been caught with the drug or have been known to use it. Kurt Cobain, lead singer for Nirvana, openly admitted to abusing the drug and checked himself into a detox center weeks before his ... clean cut pop-rock star when the drug found him. However, Weiland like Cobain was a major role model to the children of America. And as Karen Schoemer wrote in Newseek, "Since kids emulate rock stars, they're liable to emulate their drug use". Likewise, actor Robert Downey Jr. was arrested twice over the summer for possession of cocaine and heroin. Like Weiland, Downey Jr. was also a clean cut ...
57: Compare and Contrast the Language of Romeo and Juliet in the Balcony Scene
... imagery of darkness used earlier and shows how powerful and true his love is for Juliet. His love for Juliet kills the sick love and gives new life with its radiance. "Two of the fairest stars in all heaven having some business, do entreat her eyes To twinkle in their spheres ... That birds would sing and think it were not night." Here Romeo describes Juliet's eyes as stars and not just any stars but the "fairest stars" in the heaven. He also says that her cheeks would be so bright and full of light that the surrounding stars would feel ashamed, and the brightness of her eyes ...
58: The Little Prince
... the fox s lesson that one can see only what is essential by looking with the heart, the author leaves the desert as a changed person. He agrees with the little prince s thought: the stars are beautiful, because of a flower that cannot be seen . The rose is very fragile and needs constant care. Love is not a matter of choice; it is a matter of consequence; indeed, it is ... to form. Joy and pleasure must be earned-- not given or received -- like the joy the water from well gives to the little prince and the pilot. Its sweetness comes from the journey under the stars and the work of the pilot s arms making the pulley sing. The different planets that the little prince visited and the people he met presents man s preoccupations with useless pastimes, wealth and power ... is seen through the King and Businessman. The king puts a great deal of importance into being obeyed when he orders only what would happen anyway. The businessman takes great price in owning all the stars, a collector too busy counting them to get any pleasure from their beauty. The little prince tries to show the pointlessness of his property by explaining that it does the stars no good to ...
59: Plan and Purpose (Creation) or Time and Chance (Evolution)?
... dry ground that appeared was called “land.” He also created vegetation on the land, consisting of seed- bearing plants and fruit-bearing trees. On the fourth day of Creation, God created the sun, moon, and stars to govern the day and the night and to mark seasons, days, and years. On the fifth day of Creation, God created sea creatures (fish) to fill the waters, and birds to fly across the ... vegetation, animal life, or people there) because God had destroyed the earth in a grand flood. The Australian Aborigines believed that the milky way is the pathway of the spirits, and that the constellations and stars in the sky contain stories. Every Aboriginal tribe has similar beliefs in the Creation and the flood. The Aborigines and the Mi’kmaqs have similar beliefs, although they have never encountered each other. They believe ... the girls’ strength, determination, and tenacity, and thought that the girls performed the tests better than the men. On the last trial, the elders placed the seven girls in the sky, and they became seven stars in the sky (maidens), forming part of Pleiades, a group of hundreds of stars in the constellation Taurus. From Pleiades, the Ancient Greeks tell a similar tale in which the seven daughters of Atlas ...
60: Personal Writing: The Cliff
... a lookout along a river with a place to park the car. We've decided that this was as good as any parked. It was quite comfortable outside around 70 degrees. The full moon and stars brightened the skies and wilderness with a certain glow that the bright lights of the city somehow always devour. There was no path beyond the lookout. As we stumbled through the trees, we held our ... We've decided to lay our sleeping bags down on the edge of the cliff, it seemed to be the most level surface and the best view. As we looked up we could see the stars, thousands and thousands of them. The distinctive Milky Way right over had looked like a highway of stars stuck in rush-hour I shined my flashing over the edge down toward the river bed but my light never made it that far.I Could see the stars jumping up and down in ...
