How much is it? Our schools don't have much funding. Maybe we can go down to you guys for practice, we're not far away! :lol:

story time!!
This past summer my school got a grant to build a lecture hall/performing arts center that would hold around 200 people since my school doesn't have one. Work began in the beginning of the school year. My history hall was a closet to the room that was once there so we could always hear the people drilling into the walls and building stuff. It was quite hard to listen to lectures while they were drilling on the other side of the wall. About 2 months ago the noise stopped suddenly and I never heard it again. I found this VERY odd. A few days ago it was in the newspaper that the state took away the grant and therefore we couldn't complete the thing [we have NO money] and we have to tear down what was already built because it's "dangerous" in there. They never said why it was dangerous though. I wonder what's going to go in there now...

Between $7,620 and $17,780 depending on the size of the Lab that you want.

Okay, we're probably never going to have even close to that amount of extra money.

apparent magnitudes. Object A - 3.1 Object B - 7.8 Object 3 - (-3.2)

1. Order in brightness from most bright to least bright.
2. Would object B be easy to see in rural areas?
3. Which of the objects is MOST likely a planet?

Expect to see stuff more difficult though.
