Looks at approaches to generating ideas and overcoming writer's block.

Astronomy : observations and theories( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Opening with a survey of the solar system and an examination of the solar nebula theory that explains how our solar system was formed, this lesson also reviews how the spinning nebula formed a disk of dust particles that eventually became the planetesimals that formed the planets. The actual detection of planets around distant stars is given considerable coverage, with experts describing the newest techniques and the successes achieved."--Container

"Scientists discuss the possibility that the early seeds of life on Earth were delivered by comet impacts and the reasons why it is believed that the first life began on the deep seafloor near hydrothermal vents. The discussion continues with a look at Europa's subsurface ocean and the pros and cons of life forming in that hostile location. The life zone or habitable zone of a star is defined and the efforts to detect signatures of that life using future spacecraft missions are described. The efforts and difficulties of communicating with an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization are discussed."--Container

"Some of the most profound questions are asked and discussed in the complex subject of cosmology. What shape is the universe? How did it begin? How will it end? Evidence is presented that supports the big bang theory, and the excting notion of dark energy is introduced."--Container

"This lesson describes the thermonuclear process in the core of the sun, identifying the layers of the interior and atmosphere showing spectacular pictures of surface features, such as granulation and sunspots. The magnetic cycle and magnetic effects on the surface are also introduced. Discussion of how the sun affects Earth's climate conclude the lesson."--Container

"A presentation on the foundations of astronomy, The Birth of Astronomy examines the observations, theories, and contributions of Aristotle, Ptolemy, and other ancient scientists and philosophers. Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Kepler, Galileo, and Sir Isaac Newton's contributions are discussed throughout this lesson."--Container

"Astronomers are the only scientists who do not manipulate the objects they study. Instead, they do two basic things: collect ligth and analyze it. Accordingly, this lesson answers two basic questions: (1) What is light? and (2) What tools are used to collect it?"--Container

"This lesson begins with an explanation of the processes that allowed the planets in this part of the solar system to grow to such large sizes. How the gravity of Jupiter produces tidal heating of lo and Europa, causing the extensive volcanic activity on lo and a liquid ocean beneath the surface of Europa is explained. Saturn's interior and atmosphere are compared with thos of Jupiter. The formation and characterisitics of the ice giants Uranus and Neptune are also discussed."--Container

"This lesson explains the motion of Earth around the sun and its yearly cycle. Astronomers explain the unique orbital and size relations between the rotation of Earth, the sun, and the moon and how this makes a total solar eclipse possible at predictable intervals, known as the Saros cycle. The lesson concludes with a description of the eliptic and explains how that differs from constellations that are contained in the zodiac."--Container

"This video lesson looks at the classification of galaxies in general, and discusses the fact that, when these "island universes" were discovered, how the perceived size of our universe increased immensely. It goes on to describe the distance indicators and introduces the Hubble Law. The lesson ends with interaction and evolution of galaxies and with a sneak peek into the furthest depths of the universe."--Container

"To determine how bright a star actually is, we need to know how far away it is. This lesson illustrates how to find distance to nearby stars and how to plot them on an H/R diagram. It also shows why binary stars are important for the study of stars and their mass/luminosity relation."--Container

"The study of stellar evolution is presented by examining the birth of stars. Different types of nebulae are introduced and the necessary ingredients to produce a star: dust, gas, gravity, and maybe a little push are discussed. The mass/luminosity relation is reintroduced and suggests the role that mass will play in the life and death of a star."--Container

"Explaning the concept of a scientific model, this lesson introduces the celestial sphere as a model to help describe and organize the night sky. Several specialists explaing how different cultures named stars and constellations, and brought the aspects of the sky into their buildings and structures, such as those of Chaco Canyon in the southwestern United States."--Container
