Assista os nossos vídeos no YouTube: Sobre o jogo Durante o último século, as experiências realizadas em diversos aceleradores de partículas foram capazes de ampliar e aprofundar nossa visão sobre o interior da matéria. Hoje sabemos que prótons e nêutrons, que compõem o núcleo atômico, são partículas compostas de quarks, constituintes ainda mais fundamentais.

Uma solução encontrada para diminuir essa defasagem de quase um século de conhecimento foi a criação de um jogo educativo que permitisse ao jogador aprender os conceitos básicos sobre a composição da matéria através da tarefa de construir partículas subatômicas a partir de seus constituintes mais fundamentais.

When he wasn't conducting real-world experiments, he developed "thought experiments" to test his ideas about the way objects move, and why.

Centuries before Galileo revolutionized this area of physics, Aristotle concluded that objects of greater mass fall faster than those with less mass. This can certainly be observed with many of the objects we see around us every day. A dropped piece of paper, for example, drifts to the ground far more slowly than a falling soccer ball. In several experiments and "thought experiments" Galileo recorded many hypotheses and observations and found evidence to support the possibility of a universal law governing the motion of all falling objects. Galileo also measured the time it took for pendulums of different weights to swing back and forth and the acceleration of balls rolling down inclined planes of different lengths. DSS Pleiades Mosaic How-To. The bash script below, courtesy of Inseok Song (U.

Georgia), uses Montage v3.0 to create a mosaic of the Pleiades from online Digitized Sky Survey (DSS2) data. Relevant DSS2 FITS files are downloaded automatically through mArchiveList and mArchiveExec commands of the Montage package. Downloaded files are mosaicked into a 3x3 degree image via mProjExec and mAdd commands. Three large images are then put together as a false color image through the mJPEG command, where DSS2B/DSS2R/DSS2IR data are represented as blue/green/red, respectively. To create your own image, you must create your own image definition file (e.g. pleiades.hdr), and change the center position and size of your image in the mArchiveList command below. For more information, contact the Montage Help Desk. Contents of pleiades.bash #! Contents of pleiades.hdr. LIVE REAL TIME SATELLITE TRACKING AND PREDICTIONS. The astronomical magnitude scale. The scale below is given as an instructive tool, to give a general idea of how the magnitude scale works.

The scale below is intended to be roughly visual; the human eye's (dark-adapted) detection efficiency peaks around 495 nanometers, while the formal photoelectric V peak (a filtered band intended to be close to visual) is around 550 nm; CCDs tend to peak around 700 nm. The examples are given for integer values are not "exact", in that celestial objects are often measured to a precision or 0.1 or 0.01 magnitude; for example, Sirius shines at V = -1.47 (Yale Bright Star Catalogue), and the planet Venus varies in brightness generally from magnitude -4.5 to -3.7.

Note that a comet of magnitude 5 will not be as easy to see as a star of magnitude 5, because that same amount of brightness that is concentrated in a point for the star is spread out over a region of the sky for a diffuse comet with a relatively-large coma.

VirGo, The Virtual Archive Browser. VirGO is the next generation Visual Browser for the ESO Science Archive Facility developed by the VO Systems Department. It is a plug-in for the popular open source software Stellarium with added capabilities for browsing professional astronomical data. VirGO gives astronomers the possibility to easily discover and select data from millions of observations in a new visual and intuitive way. Its main feature is to perform real-time access and graphical display of a large number of observations by showing instrumental footprints and image previews, and to allow their selection and filtering for subsequent retrieval.

It reads FITS images and catalogues in VOTable format. It superimposes DSS background images and allows to view the sky in a real life mode as seen from the main ESO sites. A large fraction of ESO's non proprietary science products are already accessible through VirGO and more are to come: Data Availability Status Page Screenshots Download Installation Requirements 1.

Change Log. Worm Watch Lab. Now You Can Fly Through Every Known Galaxy In Your Own Virtual Spaceship. Live From The International Space Station! The International Space Station (ISS) is a habitable satellite that was launched on October 31 2000 and has had continued human occupation ever since, the longest on record. It's an observatory and research laboratory in low Earth orbit with crew conducting experiments in Biology, Physics and Astronomy, amongst other things. The station orbits the Earth every 90 minutes, and in 2010 it had racked up almost 60,000 orbits, accruing a whopping 1.5 billion miles. To give you an idea of its size, in total it's about the area of a U.S. football field, and weighs over 400,000 kilograms. You can see the ISS without a telescope; the best time is the few hours after sunset or before sunrise. If you want to take a look at what it's doing and have a sneaky peek at the crew whilst they're on duty, check out the live ISS stream here!

If the stream displays a black/blue screen, there has been a temporary loss of signal. Check back later. Live streaming video by Ustream. GLIMPSE360: Spitzer's Infrared Milky Way. The infrared GLIMPSE360 image is shown against the backdrop of the visible-light Digitized Sky Survey. Constellation lines are shown in red. Click and drag to pan through the image. Zoom in and out using the scroll wheel, or pinch-to-zoom on mobile devices. Controls will auto-hide but will return after panning or zooming. Drag the slider to cross-fade between the infrared and visible-light views. Expand to fill the screen. Zoom into/out of the image. Visit Microsoft's WorldWide Telescope homepage. This infrared view of the disk, or plane, of our Milky Way galaxy is assembled from more than 2 million snapshots taken over the past 10 years by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The data were taken as part of a huge survey project called the Galactic Legacy Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinaire, or GLIMPSE360.

The image combines data from multiple surveys: GLIMPSE, GLIMPSEII, GLIMPSE3D, Vela-Carina, GLIMPSE360, Deep GLIMPSE, CYGX, GALCEN, & SMOG.

Algodoo vs Modellus. Já hoje demos conta no nosso blog como utilizar o tablet ou smartphone para estudar Física aproveitando os sensores destes aparelhos. Agora, apresento-vos um software de simulação de Física e que agora é freeware: o Algodoo.

Este software está disponível para Mac, iPad e Windows. É simples de usar e tem um tutorial que ensina como utilizar as diversas ferramentas. Comparativamente ao software português Modellus verifico que o Algodoo é baseado em objetos e não necessitamos de criar as equações que regem o nosso modelo. Para brincar apenas com os objetos e perceber a física por detrás do que é observado recomendo o Algodoo. Se tiverem dúvidas ou sugestões podem deixar nos comentários. Planet Hunters. Astrometrica.

Race to Mars : Games. Download NASA's Eyes. A Virtual Galactic Smash-Up! Want to stay on top of all the space news? Follow @universetoday on Twitter An online simulator for galactic collisions (Adrian Price-Whelan/Columbia University) Have you ever had the desire to build your own galaxies, setting your own physical parameters and including as many stars as you want, and then smash them together like two toy cars on a track? Well, now you can do just that from the comfort of your own web browser (and no waiting billions of years for the results!)

This interactive online app by Adrian Price-Whelan lets you design a galaxy, including such parameters as star count, radius and dispersion rate, and then create a second galaxy to fling at it. Clicking and dragging on the black area will send the invading galaxy on its course, letting you watch the various results over and over again. (If those SMBH’s hit, look out!) In reality many galaxies have gone through (or are going through, from our perspective) such collision events, our own Milky Way being no exception. Heavens-Above. Solar System Scale Model.
