SCIENCE TOYS ARE INTERNATIONAL! Neutron star Neutron stars contain 500,000 times the mass of the Earth in a sphere with a diameter no larger than that of Brooklyn, United States A neutron star is a type of stellar remnant that can result from the gravitational collapse of a massive star during a Type II, Type Ib or Type Ic supernova event. Neutron stars are the densest and tiniest stars known to exist in the universe; although having only the diameter of about 10 km (6 mi), they may have a mass of several times that of the Sun. Neutron stars probably appear white to the naked eye. Neutron stars are the end points of stars whose inert core's mass after nuclear burning is greater than the Chandrasekhar limit for white dwarfs, but whose mass is not great enough to overcome the neutron degeneracy pressure to become black holes. The discovery of pulsars in 1967 suggested that neutron stars exist. Neutron star collision Formation[edit] Properties[edit] Gravitational light deflection at a neutron star.

ORTHODOX GNOSIOLOGY © George Metallinos A. Problem or pseudo-problem? The antithesis and consequent collision between faith and science is a problem for western (Franco-Latin) thought and is a pseudo-problem for the Orthodox patristic tradition. The (supposed) dilemma of faith versus science appears in Western Europe in the 17th century with the simultaneous development of the positive sciences. The turning points in western Europeans course of alteration include: scholasticism (13th century), nominalism (14th century), humanism/renaissance (15th century), Reformation (16th century) and the Enlightenment (17th century). Scholasticism is supported on the adoption of the Platonic realia. The scientific revolution in Western Europe of the 17th Century, contributed to the separation of the fields of faith and knowledge. B. It has been said that in the East the antithesis between faith and science is a pseudo-problem, Why? This clearly expresses that in Orthodoxy, authority is found in experience. C. D. E.

Los Valores Humanos La honestidad, la tolerancia, la sinceridad, la generocidad FUERZAS MORALES. Existen unas fuerzas, cuyo poder sobrepasa a todas, pues radica en el plano del espíritu, superior a la materia, y a las cuales todas las demás fuerzas deben estar subordinadas: son las fuerzas morales.Podrían mencionarse la solidaridad, el mérito, y tantas otras. Basten como ejemplo las enunciadas a continuación: Bondad: La bondad consiste, no solo en la ausencia del mal, sino en la inclinación natural a hacer el bien. Ciencia: Es un conjunto de conocimientos armónicamente relacionados acerca de un mismo tema. Deber: El deber tiene su base en un buen sentido de justicia, inspirada por el amor y esta es la forma más bella de la bondad. Dignidad: La dignidad es la excelencia que tiene la persona y que la hace acreedora al respeto de sus semejantes y la obliga a un comportamiento decoroso. Disciplina: La disciplina lleva al cumplimiento puntual de las leyes y pone orden en la sociedad, condición indispensable de todo progreso. Verdad: La verdad es lo que es.

MAGIC PROPELLER STICK I don't care if my ancestors were playing with this folk toy a century ago. It is as magical today. And it will be just as fascinating to future generations even if we harness nuclear fusion for power and interplanetary travel becomes routine. That's what "classic" means: timeless, immortal. If you haven't crossed paths with a magic propeller stick (also known as a whimmy-doodle in Appalachia), you're in for a treat. You hold the stick in one hand and rub bumps on it with another. There is some cool science going on here. Traditionally, people have whittled notches into a wooden stick with a pocket knife to create the bumps-- not a very safe elementary project.
