Jupiter and its moons Jupiter and its moons

Description

Jupiter has long been an object of wonder, with its dramatic Great Red Spot, its numerous and varied satellites and the stunning collision of the comet Shoemaker Levy 9 with the Jovian atmosphere in 1994. This free course, Jupiter and its moons, will introduce you to our solar systems largest planet and its major satellites and the history of their exploration. First published on Mon, 21 Mar 2016 as Jupiter and its moons. To find out more visit The Open University's Openlearn website.

STS.471J Engineering Apollo: The Moon Project as a Complex System (MIT) STS.471J Engineering Apollo: The Moon Project as a Complex System (MIT)

Description

This course is a detailed technical and historical exploration of the Apollo project to "fly humans to the moon and return them safely to earth" as an example of a complex engineering system. Emphasis is on how the systems worked, the technical and social processes that produced them, mission operations, and historical significance. Guest lectures are featured by MIT-affiliated engineers who contributed to and participated in the Apollo missions. Students work in teams on a final project analyzing an aspect of the historical project to articulate and synthesize ideas in engineering systems.

EC.050 Recreate Experiments from History: Inform the Future from the Past: Galileo (MIT) EC.050 Recreate Experiments from History: Inform the Future from the Past: Galileo (MIT)

Description

2010 marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's astonishing sightings of features on the moon, stars, and moons around Jupiter that no one had seen before. Recreate these new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques Galileo had on hand, while you reflect on the times and works of Galileo. What was it like to improvise new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques on hand? What do we notice? What surprises us? How can we relate to past experience and ideas? What are we curious to research? How does our experimenting grow into our learning? Let your own curiosity drive your explorations. 2010 marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's astonishing sightings of features on the moon, stars, and moons around Jupiter that no one had seen before.

St John Ambulance volunteers dressed as 'moon men'

Description

Postcard of St John Ambulance men in Jarrow, 1922 (TWAM ref. 5625). The back of the card is annotated with the explanation 'Dressed Moon Men from film Moon Child?. The postcard is unused. This set celebrates the many postcards in our collections. The people, places and events they show can give us an insight into the past, documenting the landscape, the fashions, the way we lived. Some postcards are unused but others tell us something about the people who bought them, through the messages they wrote. They can give us a fascinating glimpse into people?s lives.

The Formation of Terrestrial Planets - the 2nd Lobanov-Rostovsky Lecture in Planetary Geology

Description

Prof Alessandro Morbidelli of the Observatoire de la Cote d'Azur in Nice gives the 2nd Lobanov-Rostovsky Lecture in Planetary Geology. He talks about the formation of planets in the universe. Morbidelli uses numerical modelling and geochemical and cosmochemical analyses to explain planetary formation within our solar system. He provides a growth history of the Earth, with reference to the specific elements found in the Earth mantle, as well as insight into the composition and timing of moon formation.

Earth: Fundamentals of Engineering Design (MIT) Earth: Fundamentals of Engineering Design (MIT)

Description

Student teams formulate and complete space/earth/ocean exploration-based design projects with weekly milestones. This course introduces core engineering themes, principles, and modes of thinking, and includes exercises in written and oral communication and team building. Specialized learning modules enable teams to focus on the knowledge required to complete their projects, such as machine elements, electronics, design process, visualization and communication. Examples of projects include surveying a lake for millfoil from a remote controlled aircraft, then sending out robotic harvesters to clear the invasive growth; and exploration to search for the evidence of life on a moon of Jupiter, with scientists participating through teleoperation and supervisory control of robots.

Description

This class introduces the student to the use of small telescopes, either for formal research or as a hobby. This course covers background for and techniques of visual observation, electronic imaging, and spectroscopy of the Moon, planets, satellites, stars, and brighter deep-space objects. Weekly outdoor observing sessions using 8-inch diameter telescopes when weather permits. Indoor sessions introduce needed skills. Introduction to contemporary observational astronomy including astronomical computing, image and data processing, and how astronomers work. Student must maintain a careful and complete written log which is graded. (Limited enrollment with priority to freshmen. Consumes an entire evening each week; 100% attendance at observing sessions required to pass.)
