European Homepage In April of this year, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope will be celebrating 24 years of observing. To celebrate this milestone, the observatory is releasing a brand new image of part of NGC 2174, otherwise known as the Monkey Head nebula. This new Hubblecast episode showcases this beautiful image, which views a colourful region filled with young stars embedded within bright wisps of cosmic gas and dust. Welcome to the Hubblecast! Hubblecast features news and Images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Events, ENQA (Qualité de l'ESR en Europe) If you are interested in hosting an ENQA event, please see the Guidance. 9th ENQA Training of Agency Reviewers (FULL) The 9th ENQA Training of Agency Reviewers will take place on 12-13 May 2014 in Bern, Switzerland. The training session is organised by ENQA and hosted by the Swiss Center of Accreditation and Quality Assurance in Higher Education (OAQ).

La Silla La Silla, in the southern part of the Atacama desert, 600 km north of Santiago de Chile and at an altitude of 2400 metres is the home of ESO's original observing site. Here ESO operates two major telescopes: the 3.6m telescope, and the New Technology Telescope (NTT). They are equipped with state of the art instruments either built completely by ESO or by external consortia, with substantial contribution by ESO. La Silla Observatory is hosting regularly Visitor Instruments that are attached to a telescope, for the duration of a run of observation and then is removed from the telescope. La Silla also hosts national telescopes, such as the 2.2-m Max-Planck telescope, 1.2-m Swiss Telescope and the 1.5-m Danish Telescope.

The Best 9 Free Websites That Offer Free eBooks for Teachers Education nowadays is talking digital and probably by the year 2020 most of the schools in the US and Canada will have already embraced digital textbooks. Digital learning is gaining ground day after day and the sooner we embrace it the better. There are several ways teachers can benifit from this digital boom in education. One of them is digital reading. This is a kind of reading that is completely free of any charge and can take place anywhere, anytime. I am talking about a set of great websites that provide free ebooks for all kinds of learners and covering a plethora of different subject areas from literature and arts to science and technology.

Fractal Figure 1a. The Mandelbrot set illustrates self-similarity. As the image is enlarged, the same pattern re-appears so that it is virtually impossible to determine the scale being examined.

On the Viability of Conspiratorial Beliefs Abstract Conspiratorial ideation is the tendency of individuals to believe that events and power relations are secretly manipulated by certain clandestine groups and organisations. Many of these ostensibly explanatory conjectures are non-falsifiable, lacking in evidence or demonstrably false, yet public acceptance remains high. Efforts to convince the general public of the validity of medical and scientific findings can be hampered by such narratives, which can create the impression of doubt or disagreement in areas where the science is well established. Conversely, historical examples of exposed conspiracies do exist and it may be difficult for people to differentiate between reasonable and dubious assertions.

Category:Time Time is a measure of duration. It can mark change by operational definition, or by other technologies. By the 20th century, Albert Einstein came to regard time as a fourth dimension, along with space, within a spacetime. Subcategories This category has the following 24 subcategories, out of 24 total.
