Nature by Numbers – Video – Well-known geometrical and mathematical formulas (The Fibonacci Series and Spiral, The Golden and Angle Ratios, The Delauney Triangulation and Voronoi Tessellations) present themselves in nature. Now researchers from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, using advanced ion-microprobe instrumentation, have found evidence that Earth’s water was a part of our planet from the beginning.

The telescope would also have to be cryogenically cold, because at any temperature higher than 50 kelvin, infrared heat radiation from the telescope itself would wash out the faint photons that the astronomers were looking for. "That was the science that propelled the whole thing," says Dressler. Just as the JWST's scientific objectives required new technology, mission planners have had to devise entirely new protocols to test it. "With the JWST we have to do incremental modelling, building and testing, validating our model at each stage and then moving up to the next level of assembly," says Phil Sabelhaus, the JWST project manager at Goddard. "We aren't only testing — we're also proving our ability to model correctly, which is how we will evaluate the JWST's absolute performance on-orbit."

Not only is this surprising, it’s a big deal. In 1609, Galileo was the first person to use a telescope to observe the skies. We constantly search for other solar systems in space for we believe that life can only exist on planetary objects. Using simple ratios he showed the following: Heraclides (330 B. Bayer is also partnering with Tickets for Kids Charities and committing to donate up to 25,000 hands-on science experiences, such as a visit to a science center. In the late 1970s, astronomers Vera Rubin and Albert Bosma independently found that spiral galaxies rotate at a nearly constant speed: the velocity of stars and gas inside a galaxy does not decrease with radius, as one would expect from Newton’s laws and the distribution of visible matter, but remains approximately constant. …Read more.

Most physically interesting problems are governed by ordinary, or partial differential equations. NASA's launch of the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) spacecraft took place at 7:27 p.m. on 27 June 2013 (02:27 UT, 28 June) about 100 miles from Vandenberg AFB. If you turned the entire Earth into a black hole it would only be about a centimeter across, the size of a marble. And we will learn how modern day scientists are pushing the limits of space exploration every day.
