Editor's Note: We are posting this feature from our March issue because of news from the annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society about the phenomenon discussed here. We live in a universe that is full of bright objects. On a clear night one can see thousands of stars with the naked eye.

3-D Atlas of Stars and Galaxies
A galaxy is a gravitationally bound system of stars , stellar remnants , interstellar gas , dust , and dark matter. Galaxies range in size from dwarfs with just a few hundred million 10 8 stars to giants with one hundred trillion 10 14 stars,  each orbiting its galaxy's center of mass. Galaxies are categorized according to their visual morphology as elliptical ,  spiral , or irregular. For comparison, the Milky Way has a diameter of at least 30, parsecs , ly and is separated from the Andromeda Galaxy , its nearest large neighbor, by , parsecs 2. The space between galaxies is filled with a tenuous gas the intergalactic medium having an average density of less than one atom per cubic meter.

Classroom Activities & Resources
We are in the thick of a revolution in our understanding of our place in the Universe. The physical and chemical underpinnings of our biology are now understood. Every planet in our solar system has been visited if briefly , and our robotic explorers are roving and orbiting our planetary neighbors. In the last twenty five years, we have gone from 9 planets around our Sun to thousands of planets in our Galaxy, including several that may have liquid water on their surface. We are building the next generation of telescopes on the ground and in space that will provide a census of Earth-like planets, the first spectra of extra-solar planets, and a survey of emission signatures of possible alien technological civilizations from gamma-rays to radio waves.

The 3-D Atlas of the Stars and Galaxies shows the stars and A star at twice that distance and showing a parallax of one-half galaxies in three-dimensional space, with the third of a second of arc is said to be at a distance of'two parsecs'; one dimension- distance- dire. Because our eyes are set between two and three inches 50 to 80 The accuracy of measurements of parallax depends in part on mm apart our stereoscopic vision extends to only a few hundred the apparent brightness of the star to be measured, but yards metres at most.

Everything has a shadow! Shadows illustrate how three-dimensional objects can be viewed in two dimensions. Students explore the Earth and Sun's postions in relation to the constellations of the ecliptic with a small model.
A star is an astronomical object consisting of a luminous spheroid of plasma held together by its own gravity. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun. Many other stars are visible to the naked eye at night , but due to their immense distance from Earth they appear as fixed points of light in the sky.

Measurement of physical properties of stars and galaxies. Parallax and the distance ladder. Magnitude systems and their relationship to quantitative measurements of luminosity and effective temperature. Observational properties of stars and galaxies: the H-R diagram, stellar clusters, basic description of the structure of the Milky Way; the Hubble classification of galaxies; galaxy luminosity functions. The equations of stellar structure: hydrostatic equilibrium, virial theorem, convection and energy transport.
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. The biggest questions in astronomy are those of how the planets, stars, galaxies, and the Universe were formed. ORIGINS describes how over the last decade, astronomers have discovered the probable answers to three of these fundamental questions. Starting with the space missions that have uncovered the haphazard history of our own planetary system, this book travels into space and backwards in time, describing the discovery of other planetary systems and their connection to extraterrestrial life. ORIGINS also tells the human stories behind the discoveries: the astronomers who searched for Planet X but lost a planet, the cosmic archaeologists who deciphered the history of galaxies, and of boomerang , the telescope that came back and showed that space is flat. He is currently a professor of Astrophysics and Cosmology at Cardiff University, where he carries out research into the origin of galaxies.
Женщина сочувственно кивнула. - Поссорились. На мгновение Беккер задумался. Потом изобразил смущенную улыбку. - Неужели это так заметно. - Как ее зовут? - Женщина лукаво подмигнула.
Но, посмотрев на распростертую на простынях громадную тушу, почувствовала облегчение.
Беккер вдруг понял, что непроизвольно рванулся вперед, перед его глазами маячил только один образ - черная помада на губах, жуткие тени под глазами и эти волосы… заплетенные в три торчащие в разные стороны косички. Красную, белую и синюю. Автобус тронулся, а Беккер бежал за ним в черном облаке окиси углерода. - Espera! - крикнул он ему вдогонку.
Голос болезненно кашлянул. - Да. Немало.
Если я и полицейский, то уж точно не здешний, как ты думаешь. Эти слова, похоже, озадачили панка. - Меня зовут Дэвид Беккер.
Когда коммандер заговорил, в его голосе звучали ледяные нотки: - Мистер Чатрукьян, я не хочу сказать, что вас это не касается, но фильтры обошел. - Очевидно, что Стратмор с трудом сдерживает гнев. - Я уже раньше объяснял вам, что занят диагностикой особого рода. Цепная мутация, которую вы обнаружили в ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, является частью этой диагностики.
