Re: Astronomy C

Hmmm I have a question. Say you know a galaxy has a hydrogen line at 656 nm. The redshifted line is now at 1115 nm. What would be the redshift value and how fast would the galaxy be going.

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

I had the same problem with scheduling conflicts last year. Regionals for SO was the same day as the all-state concert. Me and the other t...
