Jord-størrelse planet discovery: 5 ting at vide

 

NASA'S Kepler rumteleskopet opdaget en anden jord-størrelse planet, der er i den "beboelige zone," en planet afstand fra sin stjerne hvor forholdene er ideel til flydende vand.

Denne planet--kaldet Kepler-186f--er tættest på jorden i størrelse af alle de tidligere opdagelser af planeter i dette Guldlok zone, sagde Elisa Quintana af NASAs Ames Research Center og SETI Institute, ledende forfatter af undersøgelsen rapporteret i tidsskriftet Science.

Opdagelsen af Kepler-186f er "et stort skridt hen imod at finde denne hellige gral planet", der både tæt i størrelse til jorden og kredser omkring en stjerne svarer til jordens sol, Quintana sagde. I stedet for at...

Ingen andre beviser giver mere overbevisende magt til en virksomheds evne end godt ord folk sat på deres vegne. Uopfordret eller ej, positiv feedback for det gode arbejde udført af en person er ligesom forfriskende regn efter en lang tørkeperiode.

Når folk gør deres job godt trods de vanskeligheder, er værdien af deres arbejde værdsat godt af dem, der har den samme dedikation til deres eget arbejde. Og sådanne mennesker betale gode penge for god service. Fra den mindste part fordel, som kunne være så simpelt og billigt som et bånd omkring et stearinlys til de dyreste kage, kan man altid se mængden arbejde lagt i at gøre det. Vi alle føler en følelse af glæde og inspiration i noget, der er et produkt af både...

A week or so ago, I watched an old sci-fi movie, circa 1958, with my wife. It featured horrible special effects and an unrealistic story line about manned missions to Mars. Of course, it was made 55 years ago, so it should come as no surprise that the science was outdated, but we also noted that on the flight back to earth, from Mars, all the meals were served by the female scientists. The women were clearly treated as equals, scientifically, but still expected to clean up after dinner and serve the men coffee.

I also recently read a Smithsonian article about Carl Sagan, in anticipation of the new Cosmos series.

It dawned on me, that Sagan spent a considerable amount of his time in an attempt to bring the study of space, as well as an...

Multi-tasking has become a common thing nowadays. Yes, it has been around for centuries we must admit; but the level at which it is done in our present technological age is far more extreme. The tasks needed to prepare for a wedding in ancient times were primarily done not by the bride and groom but the people around them. Parents, in certain societies, arranged and prepared the marriage for the couple who may not have met or talked to each other until the wedding day. So, how could they have done anything together to make their day of marital union a memorable and successful event they and their children will remember? Not even dry pressed roses to recall their first kiss or first date.

Several decades ago when...
