LEARN ASTROLOGY: Free Step-by-Step Lessons & Exams Step-by-Step It’s fun and easy to learn astrology if you take it one step at a time. What is Astrology? Astrology is the science of finding connection between those of us on the Earth and the Cosmos. It follows the patterns of movement by the planets and stars and assigns meanings to them that relate to human motivation and consciousness. Five-Minute Film Festival: Classroom Resources for Physics Teachers Have you ever wondered why airplanes stay in the air? What a vortex is? How gravity works? Physics can tell you! Physics is the amazing study of how the world around us works.

7 Space Simulators That Let You Explore the Universe Why should Mars rovers have all the fun? If you're tired of standing by while Curiosity rolls around up there, it's time to head out on the open exosphere and explore the universe for yourself — digitally, of course.

In honor of ESO’s birthday, we take a look at some of its most stunning shots of the night sky, amazing objects in space, and the organization's beautiful telescope facilities. ESO started when astronomers from five European countries – Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden – came together on Oct. 5, 1962 to build a telescope in the Southern Hemisphere. Having a large telescope south of the equator gave these member states access to unprecedented clear skies and celestial objects that simply can’t be seen from the Northern Hemisphere, such as the Magellanic Clouds.

Periodic Table Battleship I have posted a lot about Chemistry lately. My oldest has been studying it and really enjoying it. I love his science-y mind! No One Wants to Live in My 'Elysium'-Style Simulation Orbital Space Colony They will also be a pain in the ass to run. And I speak from experience on this because I briefly governed my own orbital colony. My time in command did not end well. Joe Strout gave me the opportunity to fail. A software engineer with a huge background in creating complex simulations, Strout is the creator of High Frontier, which seeks to translate the mechanics of the SimCity series into a vacuum.

Beyond 2012: Why the World Didn't End Beyond 2012: Why the World Didn't End If you're reading this story, it means the world didn't end on Dec. 21, 2012.

The Mayan connection "was a misconception from the very beginning," says Dr. Gamification with Edmodo created by Bobby Brian Lewis What is Gamification? Gamification is the use of game thinking and game mechanics in non-game contexts to engage users in solving problems. How I use Gamification with Edmodo I create small groups under my main group on Edmodo each small groups

An Introduction To Galactic Mathematics An Introduction To Galactic Mathematics by Robertino Solàrion As time goes by and as we come across more and more information concerning the "occult sciences," we find a sort of inconsistency in numbers, especially when dealing with the period of time known as one cycle of "the Precession of the Equinoxes." The Precession of the Equinoxes is the period of time that it takes the Earth to pass through one complete cycle of the Constellations of the Zodiac. Our spring equinox is now aligned with the Constellation of Pisces, about 10° into that constellation, going in a "backward" direction towards the end of the Constellation of Aquarius. It takes this planet 72 years to pass through 1° of the Zodiac, or 25,920 years to complete one full cycle.

iPads + Water Rockets = Fun Science & Math Lesson This morning I stopped by my friend Mike Morrell’s 9th grade science class. It was water rocket launch day so I knew it would be a fun day. Mike’s students have been working on rocket designs and building their rockets for a while.
