    To The Stars
    Exploring The Universe
    Astronomy For Kids
    The subject of astronomy is one of the fascinating that science has to offer. While it is understandable that children may be bored when learning about botany or geology, astronomy is the kind of thing that is perfect for the overactive imagination of a child. While Astronomy is certainly complicated, a basic understanding of astronomy for kids is a perfect way to ensure an ongoing fascination with the cosmos in later days. There are many books, websites, and magazines that specialize in astronomy for kids, but none are absolutely necessary. Any parent or teacher with a general knowledge of astronomy can help their children or students nurture an appreciation for our stars and planets. Constellations are a great way to start teaching astronomy for kids. Identifying them can be as fun as finding Waldo, which one might argue isn't very fun but it is certainly more entertaining than sitting in a classroom. Two great constellations to start with are the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper, also known as Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. Ursa Major and Ursa Minor are always visible in the night sky and never set below the horizon. In addition, they are simple to find. The Big Dipper, understandably, looks like a giant ladle. The Little Dipper looks like a smaller spoon, and is found inside the Big Dipper. Once they are located, you may wish to tell the children the mythological story behind the two constellations. This may fill their mind with curiosity about the other constellations in the sky. Cassiopeia is another great constellation to identify. It isn't terribly difficult to find. It is the only constellation that looks like a "W". One thing you'll want to make sure of is to refer to an astronomical guide to see which constellations are visible in your hemisphere during the particular time of year you are in.

    Would You Go to Mars if You Knew You Could Never Come Home?
    Friday October 29, 2010 The title of this post sounds like one of those queries that academics pose each other as they ponder the psychological nature of man. Or perhaps it is more akin to a drunken utterance made in a bar. Either way it is a peculiar question, but it is one that may be more steeped in reality than in the hypothetical realm. A recent article published in the peer-reviewed The Journal of Cosmology has suggested that instead of pursuing a manned space flight program that would take us to Mars and back, that it would be more cost effective and perhaps scientifically more advantageous to simply send people to live on the red planet. Permanently. Of course the consequences of such an endeavour are vast. While considerable technological barriers and psychological considerations exist that need exploring. But it does seem doable.

    Astronomy for Kids - All About Comets Guest Author - Lea Terry
    Comets look beautiful in the night sky, but for centuries, people were afraid of them. Some of the more well-known comets, like Halley’s Comet, created so much fear that people were afraid to leave their homes when the comet was overhead. Today, we know much more about comets. They’re not signs of doom or destruction, as some ancient cultures believed. Instead, they’re very ordinary chunks of space debris.
    Q: What are comets made of?
    A: Comets are small chunks of ice and dust, which is why they’re often called “dirty snowballs.” The nucleus, which is the true comet, is made of ice, frozen gases (including methane, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide), and solid particles (including rock, dust and dirt). The nucleus is surrounded by a thin, dark crust.
    Q: Where do comets come from? A: Most comets come from two places: the Oort Cloud and the Kuiper Belt. These are areas deep within the solar system, far beyond Neptune and Pluto, the farthest planets. Q: What makes a comet glow?

    18. Astronomy For Kids
    Gives a few basic facts about comets. And a few pictures.
    Are objects made up of gas, ice and dust. They travel around the Sun in an orbit.
    Are warmed up as they approach the Sun. This causes the Comet to form a head and tail. The head is the cloud-like mass we see in the front. The tail is the trailing part which is made up of small particles and ice.
    Lose mass each time they pass through the inner regions of the Solar System.
    Are usually named after the person who discovered them.

    By an eHow Contributor I want to do this! What's This? Astronomy starry night image by Stacey Lynn Payne from Astronomy is the science of celestial bodies, such as planets, stars, comets and galaxies. Studies show astronomy is one of the most popular courses among college students. To help encourage kids' interest in the subject, there are several astronomy resources available to teachers and parents.
  • According to two separate studies published in the Astronomy Education Review, 250,000 college students nationwide enroll in introductory college-level astronomy courses each year. About 10 percent of college students will take an astronomy course at some point during their college education. Additionally, the number of places where kids can learn about astronomy is on the rise. Today there are more than 800 planetariums in the country, according to the International Planetarium Society . That's up from about 500 planetariums that were built beginning in the late 1950s.
  • Teachers and Astronomy
  • Teachers looking for a hands-on approach to teaching astronomy should consider programs in which schools partner will working scientists. For example, Project ASTRO, a national program of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, connects teachers in grades four to nine with volunteer astronomers in their area. Under the program, an astronomer agrees to visit her assigned classroom at least four times a year, serving as a science mentor to students.
