(2004).How well does the Rayleigh Sky Model describe the E-vector distribution of Skylight in clear and cloudy conditions. According to the Rayleigh sky model the daytime pattern of the sky is described in a polarized set up. The effect of Rayleigh scattering causes the light of the sky to have a definite pattern of polarization hence the blue color through the elastic scattering. This effect is mainly attributed to the scattering of light from water, aerosols, water and light from water molecules. At each wavelength the polarization is determined by the degree of polarization... and...

...Astronomy Introduction Astronomy can be defined as the study of celestial objects and it can be bifurcated in two branches – optical and non-optical astronomy. The optical astronomy is the study of all celestial objects that fall in the visible band. In a non-optical astronomy, objects are studied through gamma-ray wavelengths making the use of instruments. Both kinds of astronomy give us fairly a good idea regarding the structure, nature and evolution of celestial objects in the universe. Over the centuries several observers, scientists such as Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Hubble and many more have contributed immensely to expand our understanding of this universe (Millis, John... ).

... Astronomy Ground vs. space observation Space astronomy is highly advantageous due to the absence of atmospheric distortion that occurs from ground stations. With this in mind, the telescopes in ground stations tend to be influenced by factors found in the atmosphere to an extent that the even the wavelength is distorted due to the presence of certain elements in the atmosphere that have adverse effects towards the expected results on the outcome. In relation to this distortion on the ground, based astronomy emanates from the scattering of light in the atmosphere, which leads to the need for expensive filters to deal with the clearing of the images. As such, the light that is scattered... by the...

...?Studying the Sun The Universe is a vast embodiment of unknown knowledge in which our tiny planet is apart of the giant picture, which makes individual humans insignificant in the grand scheme. However, humans are natural inquirers when it comes to the unknown. Civilization has come up with technology, which allows us to examine far and diverse celestial objects. Sometimes, however, observation cannot merely occur at just the visible level. Scientists are interested in the composition of these objects, especially stars due to the fact that nuclear fusion allows them to create denser elements in the core, which can serve as an indicator for how old the star is. One of these methods is through...

...Early Earth DECEMBER 2006 Feature Main Page Photo Gallery See more of Frans Lanting's images in his multimedia project "Life: A Journey Through Time" at www.LifeThroughTime.com. By Tim Appenzeller Photographs by Frans Lanting Modern landscapes offer glimpses of the way our planet may have looked billions of years ago. The early Earth was a vision of hell, all scalding rock and choking fumes. Since then, its surface has cooled, continents have drifted, mountains have risen and eroded, and life has emerged, benign and green. Nearly all traces of the planet as it was have been wiped away. But from clues in the oldest rocks, deepest magmas, and even the cratered face of the moon... Earth...

... Geological activities of earth Earth is geologically and biologically active because of two energy sources; one internal and one external. The internal energy source is earth’s molten core while the external energy source is the sun. Earth is the only planet which is having both geological and biological activities. “However, considering the fact that the solar system began as a cloud of gas and dust that was near absolute zero we might wonder where the earths internal heat came from to drive the plate tectonics.” (The Heat History of Earth) It is a confusing question for the scientific world to find out the relation between earths internal activities with solar energy. If earth’s internal... Geological...

...Erosion on the Earth’s moon, Venus and Mercury: The Earth experiences a lot of erosion because of winds and rains, that the other planets and moons are deprived of and therefore, there is very less erosion that those planets experience. Besides, there are factors that play their role in eliminating erosion on other planets other than winds and rain. These factors include and are not limited to the composition of those planets, their internal chemistry and their interaction with the environment and other planets. One reason why planets like Venus experience very less / no erosion is the internal structure of the Venus. Research has shown that Venus has no tectonic plates... on the Earth’s moon, Venus and ...

...The NASA website was overwhelming. All of the vivid pictures, information, and raw data can be too much for the mind to take in at once. This site had so much information; it took a long time to look through. It would take weeks to go through all of the articles, thus an examination of current articles and links were undertaken. Links for educators, students, media, policy makers, employees, and a link to personalize the NASA website for each user creates a unique experience for each and every visitor. Everyone that surfs the web can access the NASA website and take something useful away. Technical terms are broken down for novice astronomers, more advanced issues can be found... NASA website was...
