Planet Calypso - Inicio Enjoy a revamped, more newcomer-friendly and action-packed area on the Planet Calypso continent of Eudoria. Cape Corinth, located on Eudoria's north-west coast, has been redesigned from the ground up with new terrain and places of interest. Cape Corinth now also features more beginner friendly creatures for hunting as well as an improved mining experience. Together with wonderful new music composed to match the area's aesthetics, it is a place every Calypsian should (re)experience. New arrivals from the Thule start area will begin their Calypso careers at Cape Corinth. Planet Calypso offers one of the richest and perhaps also most complex MMO game experiences out there. Learning the essentials of the game and finding your own path on Planet Calypso have been hard but is now easier than ever thanks to a new set of Video Tutorials.

American Astronautical Society Formed in 1954, the American Astronautical Society (AAS) is an independent scientific and technical group in the United States dedicated to the advancement of space science and exploration. AAS supports NASA's Vision for Space Exploration and is a member of the Coalition for Space Exploration and the Space Exploration Alliance. The AAS also focuses on strengthening the global space program through cooperation with international space organizations. The AAS runs national meetings, symposia and publications. Members meet with leaders in their field and in related disciplines, exchange information and ideas, discuss career aspirations and expand their horizons. The AAS sponsors professional, scientific and engineering meetings and maintains a publications program. AAS awards[edit] The awards are listed in the order in which they were established by the society: The AAS was awarded the Space Foundation's Space Achievement Award in 1996.[1] References[edit] External links[edit]

Scientists Discover The Oldest, Largest Body Of Water In Existence--In Space Scientists have found the biggest and oldest reservoir of water ever--so large and so old, it’s almost impossible to describe. The water is out in space, a place we used to think of as desolate and desert dry, but it's turning out to be pretty lush. Researchers found a lake of water so large that it could provide each person on Earth an entire planet’s worth of water--20,000 times over. Yes, so much water out there in space that it could supply each one of us all the water on Earth--Niagara Falls, the Pacific Ocean, the polar ice caps, the puddle in the bottom of the canoe you forgot to flip over--20,000 times over. The water is in a cloud around a huge black hole that is in the process of sucking in matter and spraying out energy (such an active black hole is called a quasar), and the waves of energy the black hole releases make water by literally knocking hydrogen and oxygen atoms together. The new cloud of water is enough to supply 28 galaxies with water.

Space Exploration Alliance The SEA logo, representing the Earth, Moon and Mars Image courtesy Space Exploration Alliance On June 3, 2004, thirteen of the United States' premier space advocacy groups, industry associations and space policy organizations teamed up to form an umbrella organization known as the Space Exploration Alliance. The primary purpose of the SEA is to support the White House's plan to refocus NASA's human space activities toward exploration beyond low Earth orbit. This effort, officially known as the Vision for Space Exploration was announced on January 15, 2004 by President George W. The organizations involved in supporting the Space Exploration Alliance include: Collectively these groups total almost one million Americans as members or as employees of member companies. History[edit] The first goal of the SEA was to work toward receiving broad Congressional support for the new national Vision for Space Exploration outside low-earth orbit, which the SEA refers to as "Moon, Mars and Beyond".

The Days (And Years) Of Our Lives Looking at the numbers above, you'll immediately notice that you are different ages on the different planets. The earth is in motion. The top-like rotation of the earth on its axis is how we define the day. The revolution of the earth around the sun is how we define the year. We all learn in grade school that the planets move at differing rates around the sun. Why the huge differences in periods? Johannes Kepler Tycho Brahe Kepler briefly worked with the great Danish observational astronomer, Tycho Brahe. Here you see a planet in a very elliptical orbit. Kepler's third law is the one that interests us the most. The Gravity Of The Situation Isaac Newton ©2000 Ron Hipschman
