Astronomers, amateur stargazers look to the skies
Meteor shower show of a lifetime for those in Europe, Asia
By The Times-Union
Associated Press,

Waves of fireballs brightened the skies like lightning last night over the sands of Arabia as the much-heralded Leonid meteor shower swelled into the heaviest storm of shooting stars in 33 years. Around the world, astronomers and amateur stargazers stared upward from dark fields, beaches, and mountaintops. The storm, which could be the most intense for decades to come, was probably the most studied in history. ''It looks like the storm has come and gone,'' said NASA aerospace engineer Jeff Anderson at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. ''It hit us real quick and dropped real quick.'' The annual shower reached a height of intensity, as forecast, about 9 p.m., raining down a storm of shooting stars at a rate of about 1,700 per hour. It trailed off to about 450 per hour within 90 minutes. Many astronomers consider 1,000 as the threshold for upgrading a shower into a true storm. About 50 astronomers from around the world sighed with wonder in the freezing cold as the fireballs flashed over the desert 25 miles from Jordan's border with Saudi Arabia.

Welcome to Online Journey Through Astronomy
Astronomy has been studies for hundreds of years and it is regarded as one of the oldest sciences. In early civilizations observations of the night sky were made simply by looking at the stars and planets. Even old Vikings used astronomy to make star maps according to which they oriented when crossing the seas. The astronomy we know today was born with the invention of the telescope which is a priceless tool for scientists to make observations. Scientists have studied the stars and named the biggest and brightest ones, stars are also combined to different constellations that were discovered ages ago. The telescope has helped to find other galaxies and planetary systems. Smaller and cheaper scale telescopes are quite often used by young students interested in astronomy, of course no big discoveries can be made with those, but even with a smaller telescope planets, stars and even constellations are visible and recognizable.

Frequently-Asked Questions About Radio Astronomy and NRAO
What is radio astronomy?
You can read this screen because your eyes detect light. Light consists of electromagnetic waves. The different colors of light are electromagnetic waves of different lengths. Visible light, however, covers only a small part of the range of wavelengths in which electromagnetic waves can be produced. Radio waves are electromagnetic waves of much greater wavelength than those of light. For centuries, astronomers learned about the sky by studying the light coming from astronomical objects, first by simply looking at the objects, and later by making photographs. Many astronomical objects emit radio waves, but that fact wasn't discovered until 1932. Since then, astronomers have developed sophisticated systems that allow them to make pictures from the radio waves emitted by astronomical objects. A number of celestial objects emit more strongly at radio wavelengths than at those of light, so radio astronomy has produced many surprises in the last half-century. By studying the sky with both radio and optical telescopes, astronomers can gain much more complete understanding of the processes at work in the universe.

Observing our Solar System with the eyes of Herschel
Miriam Rengel, Max-Planck-Institut für Sonnensystemforschung, Katlenburg-Lindau
25.11.2010 17:30 -Auditoire B02 Campus Kirchberg

The Herschel Space Observatory, one of the cornerstone missions of the European Space Agency with participation from NASA, is opening a new window to study the Universe in the far-infrared to submillimeter parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
In the framework of two Herschel Key Programs, I will present an overview of the observations of Solar System targets. These projects address the broad topic of water, its isotopologues, and related chemistry in planetary and cometary atmospheres in order to study their formation and evolution, and physical properties of poorly known objects orbiting beyond Neptune.
Miriam Rengel studied physics at the Universidad de los Andes in Mérida, Venezuela, and holds a PhD from the University of Jena. She worked at the Thüringer Landessternwarte Tautenberg and at ESA in Garching before joining, in 2005, the scientific staff of the Max-Planck-Institut für Sonnensystemforschung in Katlenburg-Lindau.

Astronomers, Amateur Skywatchers Find New Planet 15,000 Light Years Away
May 23, 2005 An international collaboration featuring Ohio State University astronomers has detected a planet in a solar system that, at roughly 15,000 light years from Earth, is one of the most distant ever discovered.
In a time when technology is starting to make such finds almost commonplace, this new planet which is roughly three times the size of Jupiter is special for several reasons, said Andrew Gould, professor of astronomy at Ohio State. The technique that astronomers used to find the planet worked so well that he thinks it could be used to find much smaller planets Earth-sized planets, even very distant ones. And because two amateur astronomers in New Zealand helped detect the planet using only their backyard telescopes, the find suggests that anyone can become a planet hunter. Gould and his colleagues have submitted a paper announcing the planet to Astrophysical Journal Letters, and have posted the paper on a publicly available Internet preprint server,

Ah, but Special Relativity, although it connects time to space,
relates them not only by the speed of light, but also the square root
of minus one. And no violations of causality are allowed by it - which
would have made it fantastic for the reasons you describe.
Thank you for a number of very readable explanations about solar
system dynamics and the like and also a very interesting statement
here about an aspect of Special Relativity that is new to me. In
the formulae for space contraction or time dilation as I recall them,
only real numbers are generally involved: but you mention "the square
root of minus one." I'd be fascinated to learn how complex numbers can enter the picture. The formulae which I've used tend to focus on the speed of an object (v) and the speed of light (c), both nonnegative quantities. The use of complex numbers with nonzero imaginary terms in Special Relativity would intrigue me, since I'm fascinated by the early use of these numbers by Bombelli in the late 16th century, for example

Re: Astronomers,amateur or otherwise.
  • From Date : Wed, 2 Apr 2008 11:45:41 +0100

These days atomic clocks are sufficiently accurate that you can see both
used to be more pronounced when Concorde was available.
Here is what the atomic clock inventor had to say about this -
"Still searching for experimental support an experiment was made in
the US some years ago. Four atomic clocks were carried by plane in
opposite directions round the world. The discrepancies between the
results for different clocks were many times greater than the effect
being sought, and yet by ignoring the results they did not like and
performing some undescribed statistical analysis the authors claimed to have confirmed Einstein's theory and specifically the clock paradox. There was a spectacular television programme about it in which a well-known actor was installed in a simulated space shuttle and told that he would come back younger than if he had stayed on earth. Being an intelligent man he appeared to regard it as a lot of nonsense as I hope the viewers did."
