Only 10% of gamma-ray sources are non-transient sources. If the mass came from the planet itself, there’s a problem: as the mass compresses and falls into the black hole, it gets hot. Here's an opportunity to see something that's up in the sky for anybody to spot but which few ever do: a planet shining in the blue sky at midday. This Quicktime movie illustrates some of the geologic processes present along transform boundaries. In addition, and perhaps even more important than the financial benefit, the prestigious scholarship from the ASP will help support the student’s academic and career goals.

Take light readings at night during different phases of the moon. Although obviously a must-have resource for future astronauts, Earthrise is also likely to appeal to those interested in history, science, engineering, and aviation. That means that a star that is very luminous is very bright. I might as well have owned the proverbial department store telescope." The white highlands, nestled between the maria, are older terrain pockmarked by thousands of craters that formed over the eons.

Mr Kalaimani and Mr Albert Tan represented TASOS and took part in the event. So we decided to gather some of the best astronomy apps for stargazers under the same hood which make it easier for you to grab the best apps for your device. They can be held at a school, church, nature center, or even accompany a corporate social event. The New York Times has an article on this very topic, in fact. The citation reads: “She is a world-leading authority on the formation, evolution, structure, and dynamics of our own Milky Way galaxy and its satellites.” Graduate student Julian Muñoz, postdoc Ely D.
