One is to look out as far as we can to see all the galaxies we can, and then add up all the galaxies we can see in a given volume of space. Our curriculum is supported by associate lecturer staff based all over the UK and Ireland; physics, astronomy and planetary sciences undergraduate modules are currently being studied by hundreds of students all over the world and we also contribute to introductory and interdisciplinary science modules being studied by several thousand students.

Then just look for the Bad Astronomy link. The answer given by Einstein was: No, the gravitation of the mass contained in cosmologically large regions may warp one’s usual perceptions of space and time; in particular, the Euclidean postulate that parallel lines never cross need not be a correct description of the geometry of the actual universe. We recommend warm clothing for all evening courses and a red light torch if you have one.

Move your cursor over an object and it will give you some brief information about it. Having trouble teaching your students how a star "moves" through the different parts of its life cycle and how they change position on the H-R Diagram? Windows to the Universe - Explore this interdisciplinary web site on the Earth and space sciences! The thought that aliens might be living on other planets may sound innocent enough. Generally, either the term "astronomy" or "astrophysics" may be used to refer to this subject. [6] [8] [9] Based on strict dictionary definitions, "astronomy" refers to "the study of objects and matter outside the Earth's atmosphere and of their physical and chemical properties" [11] and "astrophysics" refers to the branch of astronomy dealing with "the behavior, physical properties, and dynamic processes of celestial objects and phenomena". [12] In some cases, as in the introduction of the introductory textbook The Physical Universe by Frank Shu, "astronomy" may be used to describe the qualitative study of the subject, whereas "astrophysics" is used to describe the physics-oriented version of the subject.

Using the same observing method that detects atmospheres around planets orbiting other stars, the team also realized if there was water vapour venting from Europa's surface, this observation would be an excellent way to see it. "The atmosphere of an extrasolar planet blocks some of the starlight that is behind it," Sparks explained. "If there is a thin atmosphere around Europa, it has the potential to block some of the light of Jupiter, and we could see it as a silhouette.
