Re: Astronomy C

I just got back from my state's Astro test and was probably the weirdest test I've taken in Science Olympiad. Instead of an actual test we were given a computer simulation to find habitable planets. The program, which was sponsored by ASU and NASA Astrobiology, was the final for the college's Astron...

Re: Astronomy C

Hey everyone! It's been awhile since I've last been on here but I'm glad to see a lot of familiar names still around. Anyways, I'm having a little bit of trouble with the Union County 2016 practice test (number 25a) How would we go about solving the tangential velocity. For part b, I figured that we...

Re: web browser

I have both Chrome and Firefox downloaded on my computer. IMO they're about equal in terms of speed and protection so I think it really ends up coming down to which one you like the best.

Re: best TV show of all time

Why has no one said Star Trek yet? IMO it's a lot better than Doctor Who (at least the original series and the next generation were). Besides that Breaking Bad is pretty good (but a little bit overrated since the show was very dull during season three). Also, if you like vulgar humor, then South Par...

Re: Astronomy C

So where is the best reliable source for info on DSOs? Like for distance im getting a lot of variance (for example, wikipedia says Mira is 300 ly away and this wiki says 420). Id rather not get points off from a strict test proctor because i have a 20 percent error If you can you should use the Cha...

Re: Astronomy C

So why use B-V index to find temperature of a star when you can use Wien's law? What is the point of B-V index besides finding Temp? For one, from an observational standpoint, one can measure B-V index with just two magnitude measurements with a B and a V filter, as opposed to needing a full spectr...
