Scandinavian - Scandinavian America - Immigration...- Classroom Presentation Scandinavian America The Scandinavian immigrants not only built new lives in the United States; they also built a new culture. As immigrants from Scandinavia flooded into sparsely populated areas of the U.S., they helped create a particularly Scandinavian way of life, melding the varied religious, culinary, literary, and linguistic traditions that they brought with them with those that they found in their new country. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, in the Great Lakes states, the northern Great Plains, and in enclaves scattered among northern U.S. cities, a visitor might imagine that he or she was traveling through a unique new nation—Scandinavian America. Language and Education As Scandinavian immigrants arrived in the U.S., they brought a diverse group of native languages with them, and they quickly established institutions to nurture and promote their linguistic heritage. Many Scandinavians also took an active role in the burgeoning U.S. labor movement.

The Unexpected NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory Named after the Indian-American astronomer Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, Chandra was launched and deployed by Space Shuttle Columbia on July 23, 1999. Chandra is unique because of its sensitivity and its extremely high precision mirrors. These features have led to discoveries in many areas of astronomy, especially in relation to the life cycles of stars, the role of supermassive black holes in the evolution of galaxies, and the study of dark matter and dark energy.
