Our best known residents are our giant pandas, but great apes, big cats, Asian elephants, birds, amphibians, reptiles, insects, aquatic animals, small mammals, and many others can be found at the Zoo. You can take a virtual visit to the Zoo any day of the week by tuning into our live web cams, which feature many of the Zoo's animals.

Establishing the distances to other galaxies and their recession from us was the work of many minds and hands. Building telescopes, making instruments to record and analyze the light they gather, deducing the properties of bright stars, applying measurements of those stars to measure distances, and heroic efforts to measure the spectra of galaxies all built the foundation for the discovery of cosmic expansion.
Beyond Angry Birds, Five Apps That Test Your Physics Skills By Tanner Higgin, Graphite Chances are, if you have a smartphone or tablet, you’ve played Angry Birds. While Candy Crush Saga might currently top the charts, Angry Birds is the best selling app of all time. Migration of Birds Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center General Considerations While certain flight directions are consistently followed by migratory birds, it is well to remember that the term "migration route" is a generalization, a concept referring to the general movements of a species, rather than an exact course followed by individual birds or a path followed by a species characterized by specific geographic or ecological boundaries. Even the records of banded birds usually show no more than the places of banding and recovery, and the details of the route actually traversed between the two points is interpolated. In determining migration routes, one must also constantly guard against the false assumption that localities with many grounded migrants are on the main path of migration and localities where no migrants are observed are off the main path.
Simulations for Statistical and Thermal Physics Java Simulations for Statistical and Thermal Physics The following programs were written for the Statistical and Thermal Physics curriculum development project and are part of the Open Source Physics project. The programs are released under the GNU General Public License. The source code is available. We recommend running these programs as a stand-alone application (a jar file) from the Launcher.
