Preamble: You should know that the speed of light, c = 300,000 km/sec The equation for distance, d, is: d = v × t, where d is the distance, v is the speed and t is the time. Equivalently, time, t = d/v, where, as before d is the distance and v is the speed. Make sure your units are consistent and make sense. Give your answer in a unit that makes sense given the context – is the time in hours, days, years or centuries? Be sensible about the significant figures! “About a million years” is a sensible answer; 1,032,468.434194 years is nonsensical. Show your work, you will not get credit for simply writing down an answer. State your assumptions if you make some additional assumptions to get your answer. Assume that a person can walk at 5 km/hour. For eight hours per day. Assume that driving in a car, you can travel 100 km/hour for twelve hours per day. Assume that flying in an airplane you can travel at 1000 km/hour without stopping to rest. Assume that in a rocket you can travel at 30 km/sec, without stopping for rest! Actual Questions Begin Here… 1. Read about the JWST(https://www.newscientist.com/definition/james-webb-space-telescope-jwst/) – Link to New Scientist article. see also these (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Webb_Space_Telescope) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYnrKkEu43I&feature=youtu.be) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwlIyO5jOiE) (https://jwst.nasa.gov/content/about/index.html) In your own words, summarize what this project is, and why it is being done, and what we hope to learn. (4 pts) 2. If you live 2 km (a little over a mile) from campus, how much time should you leave before class if you decide to walk? If you decide to go to Washington DC, the distance is just about 400 km. How long does it take to drive to DC? If you had to walk instead, how long would it take you? It is about 4000 km from State College to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. How long would it take you to walk there? How long to fly, and how long to drive (ignore take off, landing, runway holds and delays of inbound aircraft from Philly due to weather or maintenance)? Approximately how long would it take in a rocket, at the speed indicated above? 3. Read about the Hubble Ultra Deep Field(https://www.nasa.gov/press/2014/june/hubble-team-unveils-most-colorful-view-of-universe-captured-by-space-telescope), see also this (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubble_Ultra-Deep_Field). In your own words, summarize what was done in this project, and why, and what we learned. (4 pts) 4. In your own words, describe and discuss “Olber’s Paradox”. Briefly summarize its importance in cosmology and discuss the resolution of the paradox in current cosmological models. Read the short story The Last Question by I. Asimov (http://users.ece.cmu.edu/~gamvrosi/thelastq.html), then read the short story The Nine Billion Names of God by A.C. Clarke (https://urbigenous.net/library/nine_billion_names_of_god.html). In your own words, compare and contrast the two stories Briefly discuss your personal impression of the stories and what they tell you. (4 pts)

Question 1: What is the difference between geocentric versus heliocentric models

Question 1: What is the difference between geocentric versus heliocentric models of our solar system? 1 paragraph
Question 2: If there is gravity where the International Space Station (ISS) is located above Earth, why doesn’t the space station get pulled back down to Earth? Can we use this same concept for the Earth orbiting the Sun? Moon orbiting the Earth?
Answer in 150-200 words

Write the science justification.

Rewrite your Abstract, incorporating your new, deeper understanding from Unit #2. As before, it should be between 200-400 words, and include all five basic Abstract sections described in the Project Proposal document. [20 points]
Write the Science Justification. This should be between 400-800 words and present a balanced discussion of background information, the program’s goals, its significance to astronomy in general, and its importance for the specific sub-field of astronomy it addresses. [40 points]
Write the Technical Justification. This should be between 400-800 words and explain how the proposed measurements and/or calculations will achieve the stated scientific goals. [40 points]

Title page

Five-page paper on an astronomy topic : THE JOVIAN PLANETS.
In the paper, there must be a
Title page
A table of contents
A works cited page.
The paper must have five sources of research, such as from textbooks, websites, and journal articles.
The body of the paper must be five pages, not including the title page, table of contents, or your work cited page.
The paper must be in MLA format.
The 5 pages of the body should be about the JOVIAN PLANETS, all about them, what they are, what they mean, where they come from, why are they important, a description of each of them, anything and everything about the jovian planets but in a way that makes sense why we are talking about them!

Discuss the effect of size, composition, and speed on the impact, giving examples, for at least 5 different impacts.

The following website models impacts that might occur in our solar system.
http://janus.astro.umd.edu/astro/impact/
Explore collisions that might occur on Earth. Change the size of the object (think about the sizes of objects around you–say a pea, an orange, a table, a house, a bus, and airplane, etc) and the composition (metal, rock, or ice), as well as the velocity. When you click “kaboom!” it will tell you what the effect is of an object that size hitting the Earth and how often such an impact is expected to occur. If there is an impact site on Earth that is known to be the result of this type of impact, it will list it. Discuss the effect of size, composition, and speed on the impact, giving examples, for at least 5 different impacts. At the end, discuss how likely you think it is that an impact could affect your life on Earth and how likely it is that an impact caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. Again, cite examples. Note that the program lists the effect and a location–this location is random and does not need to be recorded. If we know of an impact of this size, it will give you an example.

Discuss at least three different scientific reasons to be skeptical.

The student must follow the specific guidance of the prompt.
 The student’s response must be between 200 and 300 words in total length.
 The student must use proper grammar, spelling and syntax, but there is no specific “style”
requirement (MLA, APA, etc.).
 The student is only allowed one attempt. Edit and proof-read work carefully prior to
submission.
 The student must submit the short response as a Word document.
Response Prompt
The prevailing view in secular science regarding the origin of our solar system is the Solar
Nebula Theory. Nevertheless, the reading and videos from this module: week raise some issues
that could justify viewing the theory with skepticism. From the reading and videos, identify and
discuss at least three different scientific reasons to be skeptical. In this case, “scientific
reasons” means data/observations that we can consider that are not consistent with what the
theory claims, assumes or predicts. Your response should be 200-300 words in total length.
Please number your three (or more) empirical reasons as you write the response. Your examples
must come from the assigned reading and videos only.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.

Not one that’s already known but make it fictional.

Make up a constellation & draw using only the image down below with the stars! Not one that’s already known but make it fictional. And write a 2 paragraph talking about a fictional myth story explaining how the constellation came to be in a word document , search up what ‘myth and constellation stories are if you need help ‘please. I have to prep for sats! Thank you.
