Jupiter & Earth Comet Collisions

http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/sl9/ The comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, probably once orbited the sun independently, but had been pulled by Jupiter's gravity into an orbit around the planet. When the comet was discovered, it had broken into 21 pieces. The comet probably had broken apart when it passed close to Jupiter. Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. Its diameter is 88,846 miles (142,984 kilometers), more than 11 times that of Earth, and about one-tenth that of the sun. It would take more than 1,000 Earths to fill up the volume of the giant planet. When viewed from Earth, Jupiter appears brighter than most stars. It is usually the second brightest planet -- after Venus. Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun. Its mean (average) distance from the sun is about 483,780,000 miles (778,570,000 kilometers), more than five times Earth's distance. Ancient astronomers named Jupiter after the king of the Roman gods. Astronomers have studied Jupiter with telescopes based on Earth and aboard artificial satellites in orbit around Earth. In addition, the United States has sent six space probes (crewless exploratory craft) to Jupiter. Astronomers witnessed a spectacular event in July 1994, when 21 fragments of a comet named Shoemaker-Levy 9 crashed into Jupiter's atmosphere. The impacts caused tremendous explosions, some scattering debris over areas larger than the diameter of Earth.

Ancient Observatories: Timeless Knowledge - Part 2

NASA Connect video containing four segments as described below. NASA Connect segment explaining the foundations of astronomy and the how the Earth moves relative to the sun. This segment explains how the Earth's tilt creates the 4 seasons. NASA Connect segment explaining how the height of the sun relates to the growing seasons and the length of daylight. This segment describes how Ancient Egyptian and Greek cultures used astronomy in their lives. The segment also contains an activity for exploring how a gnomon works. In the activity students must track the shadows made by a gnomon in 30 minute intervals. The activity will teach students how the length of the shadows and the angles created by the gnomon are related to the position of the sun. NASA Connect segment that shows two examples of how the Navajo used used structures to track progress of the sun in the sky. NASA Connect segment describing the Ancient Mayan civilization and their accomplishments. This segment compares the Mayan counting system to the Roman counting system and has a brief exercise for students to add the numbers 21 and 33 using both systems.

Naked Eye Observatory MTSU

It's MTSU's naked eye observatory. Some people have called it "Stones River Henge." It's a giant sundial, a calendar, an astronomical observatory, and more. Astronomer Eric Klumpe, who conceived of this beautiful and unique learning laboratory, paid homage to the ancient Greek astronomers by calling it the Uranidrome. URANI from the Greek word for sky and DROMOS meaning a large specially prepare place.

Simple Astronomy Series - S.A.S #1 - Seasons

This video shows when are the start of the seasons and why. I call this the "21 Rule" since they start of the seasons are the 21st of the specific months. As the earth spins or orbits around the sun in one year, the Earth appears to tilts towards, and then away from the sun. (SEE SAS #6 for a diagram of this). The apparent tilt of Earths axis of daily rotation never exceeds about 23.5 degrees from the solar (sun) plane. Technically the axis tilt is a constant unchanging value of 23.5 degrees. In this discussion when I say (axis) tilt, I mean apparent tilt.... as in how we will see the sun throughout the year. The speed of this tilt is not constant, or linear as some would say. For example when heading into max. tilt, the tilt is "slowing down" and practically stopped for an instant before the tilt changes direction and gets faster once again. [This natural speeding up and slowing down in a periodic (repeating) manner is usually called "sinusoidal" motion since it can be described easilly by a sine (of the angle) equation. I will probably make a vid. of how to calculate the tilt of the Earth using this information. The common latitude lines on earth are not in reference to this tilt, but is in reference to the equator, hence a "fixed" latitude position. Longitude is also fixed and is in reference to a town in England called Greenwich; the standard followed sets this and all areas true North and South of this at 0 degrees longitude. In simple terms, latitude and longitude are just imaginary degree lines on the circle of the earth. http://wwp.greenwich2000.com/ ] Each season is 91.25 (approx. 90) days long, or 3 months. When a hemisphere (ex. northern part of the earth above the equator that is located in the middle of the poles) is tilted towards the sun or solar plane ("flatlike" orbit position around the sun) the Earth is warmer (ie. summer at max. tilt) at that location. Don't blast me with comments about the season starting on the 20 or 21 of the month. To keep it simple, let it all start either on the 20 or 21. If you consider both tilts of the equator above and below the solar plane you have a total (apparent) tilt of earths axis of about: 23.5 + 23.5 = 47 degrees. Ever here of the word solstice.. well it is usually used as a word describing winter and summer.. as in winter solstice. Sol means sun and stice means halt or stop... as when the Earth's (apparent) tilt per day and the sun's path location in the sky seems nearly stopped. The (apparent) tilt between these solstice times is called equinox. Spring and Fall are the equinox. Note, the line in the circle drawing represents the halfway point between north and south. The line tilts because the Earth (and hence north and south poles) is apparently tilting (with respect to the sun or solar plane) with the seasons. The "solar plane" or "ecliptic" is basically always the same and could be thought of as the "solar equator" in a sense. This plane extends to the Sun and the orbit of Earth around it. Due to the apparent tilt of the Earth changing daily, the apparent "solar equator" changes daily. In effect, it is incorrect to say the sun is always overhead at the defined equator line (centered between North and South of Earth). The people in the southern hemisphere, especially below 23.5 degrees cannot see the North Star at night. (correct me if I'm wrong on this). The "Tilt - lines" shown in the video are used as an aid to understanding the seasons, and it is in fact the "apparent tilt only" since the tilt of the Earth is a constant value of 23.5 degrees every day of the year.

Solar System Planets (from smallest to largest)

(Pluto is no longer classified as a planet, but it's there for size comparison. As for the Sun, it was never a planet but is here for the very same reason.) I always wanted to see a one-by-one comparison of the sizes of the planets, so I put the numbers into my 3d program. These are all correct proportions (of size, not distance). Tamen, the final planet, was a world we created when we were children. Obsessed with size, we said it was 1,000 times larger than Earth's sun (this was actually only 100 times larger, because 1000 made the sun so small you couldn't really see it). We later learned that such a planet would have to much gravity that not only would no living thing survive, but you may get a nice little black hole started right there in the planet! Wow... and I just realized that had the sun have been sitting where it is in this video, it'd be sucked into the planet instantly. *Music Appropriately taken from season 1&2 of the BBC's Red Dwarf.

Strong Photon-Photon Interactions and Meta-Materials

ABSTRACT Fun with Light: Strong Photon-Photon Interactions and Meta-Materials Presented by Jung-Tsung Shen The lightsaber is a supercool gadget that all of us would like to get one. It exhibits many novel light phenomena, notably the light blades of two lightsabers could interact with each other. Unfortunately it takes an enormous amount of energy to achieve that. One of the main difficulties of making a lightsaber is that photons normally do not interact with each other. In the first part of the talk, I will describe how to make photons interact with each other, which enables the capability of using photons to control photons. This capability has many potential applications in quantum communication and information processing, and other novel optoelectronics devices. Moreover, the configuration is well-suited for on-chip all solid-state implementations. In the second part of the talk, I will briefly explain what metamaterials are, and some novel optical tricks they can play, such as Harry Potter's invisibility cloak and super lens. In particular, I will discuss the mechanisms and properties of a special class of metamaterials -- metamaterials with ultra-high refractive index. Such artificial structures will be useful in many applications such as subwavelength lithography and imaging, broadband slow-light, and sensitive interferometer. (* The talk is for general audience with no background in these fields. *) Dr. Jung-Tsung Shen is currently a research associate at Stanford University, working on photon transport in nano-photonics, metamaterials, plasmonics, and thermal and energy transport in nano-structures. He obtained his PhD degree in physics in 2003 from MIT. He was also a graduate scholar at Bell Labs from year 1998 -2001. He will be an assistant professor at Washington University in St. Louis in September this year.

God Does NOT exist

that which consists of either matter or energy. Therefore if a god exists, it must be composed of either matter or energy. The opposite must also be true. If a god is not composed of matter or energy, then that god, by definition, does not exist. Thus to argue that a god exist, despite a total absence of matter or energy, is to argue, existence equals non-existence, which is a complete contradiction. If a god exists, then physical evidence is really the only methodology by which we can ascertain that a god exists. Of course, this does not require direct physical evidence -- we cannot perceive black holes directly, but we know that they exist due to the effects of their gravity wells on surrounding matter, as well as the flashes of energy that are released as captured matter crosses the event horizon. But since "existence" is defined as that which is composed of matter or energy, the proof of existence must be some evidence of that matter or energy. Evidence is defined as that which impacts our physical senses in some manner, either directly, or through some translating device such as a spectrograph or an oscilloscope. Since our sensory organs are designed to perceive the effects of matter and energy, it is through the evidence of the senses that we can determine the existence or nonexistence of things. If I argue that something exists, but then claim there is no way to detect it, my argument contradicts itself. Let's say I tell a deaf man that I hear a deep, loud sound coming from a speaker. If he lays his hand on it and feels no vibrations, he has every right to be skeptical. If I say that this loud sound does not have vibrations, he may then pull out his trusty microphone or other sound wave detector. If this instrument detects no sound in the vicinity, can I still tell him that this loud sound is occurring? At some point, if my definition of "loud sound" basically boils down to "that which is the opposite of any evidence that a loud sound is occurring," then clearly my approach to truth needs a little work. This approach helps clarify the truth value of the proposition that a god does not exist. If a god exists, then sensual evidence of some sort is required to determine the existence of that god. If a god is not made up of matter or energy, then that god does not exist, since that which is not composed of matter or energy -- does not exist. If a god is made up of matter and energy, then it is subject to physical laws. Since it is bound by physical laws, miracles are impossible, because miracles are, by definition, violations of physical laws. Likewise, a god cannot be all knowing and all-powerful, since both attributes would violate the basic tenets of physical laws. All knowing would require instantaneous knowledge of all matter, past, present and future, which is clearly impossible, while all powerful would require the ability to break the bounds of physical laws, which brings us back to the realm of nonexistence. If a god is subject to physical laws, then praying to a god makes about as much sense as worshiping a black hole, begging the Sun to grant you favors, or circumcising your son to appease the moon. If a god is not subject to physical laws, then the concept of a god is synonymous with the concept of non-existence. Why is there such resistance to the fact that a god does not exist? Many people redefine "God" within their own minds as "a potential form of matter or energy that has not been discovered yet," or "that which could exist in an alternate universe," or something to that effect. However, either a criterion for determining truth exists, or it does not. If such a criterion exists, then it must be objective, and based on the evidence of the senses and reason, which precludes the existence of any deities. If no such criterion exists, then both everything and nothing is true, and agnosticism, atheism, superstition, religion and the belief of the flying spaghetti monster are all equally valid. If an objective criterion for truth exists, then it cannot logically be applied according to whim, or only in situations that feel emotionally comfortable. Through this logical method we can determine no god exists. Actions are more important than beliefs.

Rare annular solar eclipse (longest of the millennium)

It was a once-in-a-millennium event on Friday when an annular solar eclipse plunged parts of Asia and Africa into partial darkness. The record-breaking eclipse, lasting 11 minutes, 8 seconds, will be the longest annular one until December 23, 3043, Reuters reported. According to astronomers, the best place to see the eclipse was in the Maldives, where it lasted the longest. An annular eclipse is when the moon passes in front of the sun, but does not completely block it, leaving a glaring ring of light.

The Electric Universe Pt.2

Wallace Thornhill is an Australian physicist. His lifelong investigation of "The Electric Universe" offers a revolutionary view of solar system history, the nature of the Sun, the behavior of comets, and stellar and galactic evolution. He is the co-author, with David Talbott, of Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe. The latter will be available on June 1, 2007 David Talbott is a comparative mythologist whose work offers a radical new vantage point on the origin of ancient cultural themes and symbols. His research has been the primary catalyst behind the "Saturn Model," and is the subject of the feature documentary, "Remembering the End of the World." He is the author of The Saturn Myth and co-author (with Wallace Thornhill) of Thunderbolts of the Gods. The two discussed the nature of the electric universe and its effect on comets and planets. The recent discharging of Comet Holmes, in which it became one million times brighter, is evidence of electric phenomena— the theory of an icy comet evaporating in the sun's path doesn't fit this model, said Thornhill. The ancients bore witness to dramatic events in the sky, stated Talbott-- the sphere of Venus radiated with plasma discharge filaments that engaged with Mars in various ways. During this period, Mars was closer to Earth and took up a 20 degree arc in the sky, such that the balance of night and daytime was altered, he said, adding that ancients such as the Egyptians depicted this event with imagery like the cosmic serpent. Thornhill suggested that the planet Saturn was actually a captured brown dwarf star and that at one time Earth was in its cometary sheath. He's also been able to make correct predictions based on the electrical model, including identifying Titan's atmosphere and noting there would be a flash before the main flash in Deep Impact's interaction with comet Tempel 1.

The Electric Universe Pt.5

Wallace Thornhill is an Australian physicist. His lifelong investigation of "The Electric Universe" offers a revolutionary view of solar system history, the nature of the Sun, the behavior of comets, and stellar and galactic evolution. He is the co-author, with David Talbott, of Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe. The latter will be available on June 1, 2007 David Talbott is a comparative mythologist whose work offers a radical new vantage point on the origin of ancient cultural themes and symbols. His research has been the primary catalyst behind the "Saturn Model," and is the subject of the feature documentary, "Remembering the End of the World." He is the author of The Saturn Myth and co-author (with Wallace Thornhill) of Thunderbolts of the Gods. The two discussed the nature of the electric universe and its effect on comets and planets. The recent discharging of Comet Holmes, in which it became one million times brighter, is evidence of electric phenomena— the theory of an icy comet evaporating in the sun's path doesn't fit this model, said Thornhill. The ancients bore witness to dramatic events in the sky, stated Talbott-- the sphere of Venus radiated with plasma discharge filaments that engaged with Mars in various ways. During this period, Mars was closer to Earth and took up a 20 degree arc in the sky, such that the balance of night and daytime was altered, he said, adding that ancients such as the Egyptians depicted this event with imagery like the cosmic serpent. Thornhill suggested that the planet Saturn was actually a captured brown dwarf star and that at one time Earth was in its cometary sheath. He's also been able to make correct predictions based on the electrical model, including identifying Titan's atmosphere and noting there would be a flash before the main flash in Deep Impact's interaction with comet Tempel 1.
