Stjärnor och planeter (LättLäst) Stjärnor och planeter (LättLäst) Det finns en sol och 8 planeter i vårt solsystem. Planeterna snurrar runt solen i banor. Planeterna ligger i den här ordningen: Merkurius, Venus, Jorden, Mars, Jupiter, Saturnus, Uranus, Neptunus. The September 2015 Wave X Awakening By Dr. Kathy J. Forti – Shattering The Matrix I once had a media and communications professor ask a packed auditorium of journalism students the interesting question: “What is the singular factor that affects all of humanity? A factor that can start or stop wars? That can raise up civilizations or destroy them?”

Egna mindmaps om rymden. Nästa nivå. Rymdenarbetet fortsätter och vi har ökat svårighetsgraden lite till. Den här gången fick eleverna själva skriva mindmaps utifrån det vi sett, hört och läst om årstiderna. Vi har gjort det tillsammans flera gånger nu så nu var det dags att prova sina vingar själva, i grupp. Men först plockade vi fram målen som vi jobbar mot just idag: * Kunna årstiderna Förskoleburken: Veckans pinterest: rymden Rymden är ett fantastiskt roligt tema att jobba med och barnen brukar bli väldigt engagerade och brukar faktiskt veta väldigt mycket om planeter och dylikt redan innan man börjar. Här är lite tips på material, pyssel med rymdentema. Följ mig gärna på Pinterest! Gör solsystemet av flirtkulor!

Aboriginal Astronomy The Emu in the Sky The photograph above shows the aboriginal "emu-in-the-sky" constellation in the sky. It won its creator, Barnaby Norris, third prize in the prestigious 2007 "Eureka" awards. Rymden Då drar vi igång rymden-tema. Mycket uppskattat hos barnen förstås! Vi introducerade PP:n med inledningen: Varför har vi årstider? Varför blir det mörkt på kvällar och nätterna och ljust på morgonar och dagar? Varför har vi något som kallas månader? Stjärnor och planeter (Lärarhandledning skolår F-3) Jag heter Albert och jag är nio år. Jag vill bli astronaut när jag blir stor. Jag tycker att allt som har med rymden att göra är jättespännande.

Ladydragon added: You Are Stardust: Teaching Kids About the Universe in Stunning Illustrated Dioramas By Maria Popova “Everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was … lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam,” Carl Sagan famously marveled in his poetic Pale Blue Dot monologue, titled after the iconic 1990 photograph of Earth. The stardust metaphor for our interconnection with the cosmos soon permeated popular culture and became a vehicle for the allure of space exploration. There’s something at once incredibly empowering and incredibly humbling in knowing that the flame in your fireplace came from the sun. That’s precisely the kind of cosmic awe environmental writer Elin Kelsey and Toronto-based Korean artist Soyeon Kim seek to inspire in kids in You Are Stardust (public library) — an exquisite picture-book that instills that profound sense of connection with the natural world. Underpinning the narrative is a bold sense of optimism — a refreshing antidote to the fear-appeal strategy plaguing most environmental messages today.

Inner Space and Outer Space: Carl Sagan’s Letters to Timothy Leary (1974) Letter from Dr. Carl Sagan to Dr. Timothy Leary - February 19, 1974 By Lisa Rein and Michael Horowitz (See full text of letters at the bottom of this post.) It will probably surprise a lot of people that the great American astronomer, astrophysicist and cosmologist, Carl Sagan, advocate of space travel and extra-terrestrial communication, visited Timothy Leary in the California Medical Facility, a state prison in Vacaville, California. How the First Nations people from the great southern continent saw the Stars First Nations peoples are the longest living continuous culture on earth, but modern researchers have just started to look at the wisdom that comes with the many thousand years of residency, and that's especially true of astronomy. First Australians tracked and predicted interstellar movements in highly sophisticated ways, looking up at the night with eyes intriguingly different to our own. To hear some examples of things that they could teach us, I met with Swinburne University's Dr.

Astronomer's guide to the solar system Dr Marek Kukula, Public Astronomer at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, takes readers on a hitch-hiker's guide to our solar system using this collection of photographs showing the best "tourist" attractions of our solar system. The collection of pictures has been put together as the Royal Observatory launches its 2011 Astronomy Photographer of the Year contest, for pictures captured by humans. For more information on the competition, visit A full-disk extreme ultraviolet image of the Sun taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory's Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) instrument, showing the temperatures of gases on the solar surface and in the solar atmosphere on March 30, 2010. Red gases are cooler (around 60,000 degrees Celsius), blue and green are warmer (more than 1 million degrees). A solar flare is seen at upper left.

Earth's magnetic heartbeat - RiseEarth by spacedaily.com With more than two years of measurements by ESA's Swarm satellite trio, changes in the strength of Earth's magnetic field are being mapped in detail. Launched at the end of 2013, Swarm is measuring and untangling the different magnetic signals from Earth's core, mantle, crust, oceans, ionosphere and magnetosphere - an undertaking that will take several years to complete. Although invisible, the magnetic field and electric currents in and around Earth generate complex forces that have immeasurable effects on our everyday lives. EWAO New Study suggests Alien Civilizations may number in TRILLIONS “We really do know that pretty much every star in the sky hosts at least one planet…” – astronomer Adam Frank. Rejoice Alien hunters, the possibility that Earth is not the only planet inhabited by an intelligent civilization has gained more credibility thanks to a brand new study that coincides with NASA’s recent planetary discoveries. The new study, published in the Journal Astrobiology proposes that more planets in our galaxy harbor advanced civilizations than anyone previously imagined.
