The index also found every star and deep space object in my test sample. StarClock1.0 DOS, 70kb is a freeware program for PC/DOS machines (VGA required) which animates evolution of stars (0.8 to 25 solar masses, solar metallicity) in the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, more exactly in the log(L/L_solar) vs. log(T_eff) plane.

Tidal force – disparity in gravitational force between two points on an object caused by the gravity of another object; this leads to a deformation of an object. The hypergiant star Eta Carinae glows against the background of swirling clouds of dust and gases that form the Carina Nebula.

This is not in the hardcopy and not even on the Astronomy Notes site BUT it is a major part of my outreach to the world on astronomy topics that it deserves a link here on the Astronomy Notes homepage. Answers to these may require the construction of new ground- and space-based instruments, and possibly new developments in theoretical and experimental physics.

Image Credit: NASA It wouldn’t be too dissimilar from astronomy on Earth. The machine allowed her to study 2 images of the sky taken 45 minutes apart, to look for objects that are moving relative to the background stars. The stars are distributed in a haphazard way across the sky, and, naturally, humans – programmed by evolution to look for patterns – have grouped stars into convenient and easily recognized arrangements.

So here is my first for you – Apollo Zero. There are many ways of getting to Mars, but no matter how you do it you need to change your speed a lot to arrive safely (for some approaches you need to move faster, and for others you need to slow down; it was never specified in the movie what kind of approach they were doing). Large databases are only a small subset of Big Data collections. You see, when you launch a satellite you need to do it at just the right speed to get it to orbit the thing you want it to, for example, around the earth.
