so the test is just about water and ice? Also I mean that with the extra time instead of studying something endlessly to drill in my brain that woin't be on the test I could also work on my other two events. :ugeek: :twisted: :twisted: :ugeek:
Happy to be here

My coach gave me a two inch binder all about the history of the solar system, everything about the planets, everything about the sun, and pretty much every constellation known to man. Somehow, I still have absolutley no information. Maybe because I get distracted easily. I'm sure everything I need to know is in there.

I'm pretty sure next to nothing you need to know is in there. The new event is all current research, you won't find what you need in someone's old study binder. Has your coach read the new rules?

Question. So i'm up to researching the moon of Enceladus, and i'm just wondering: Should we research cryovolcanoes even though it's not on the list, but the theme this year is all about water in the solar system?

It could be worthwhile, since lots of supervisors will include things in their tests that are relevant to the event, but not explicitly stated in the rules. Often, those sort of things separate the great teams from the good teams.

Currently the main resource I am using is NASA's website. I was wondering, what other resources are out there (other than Wikipedia)?
Sine functions are quite odd, to be honest.

First, I think you should look into cryovolcanoes. It seems to be a major feature related to this year's topic.

Second, from experience google is of course a great source! Tad also nicely linked to a great resource (the aavso link). Really, outside that AAVSO link, NASA/JPL, and wikipedia, I think using googling for various resources may be your best bet. Sorry if that sounds fairly obvious, but you'll see stuff from universetoday, space.com, all sorts of places, so it may be better just to get working.

Are there any sites you all suggest for studying, that doesn't include typing the category into Google??? I already use Nasa, but that doesn't have much info about Europa. :?
