5 Motion of the Moon
It was interesting to take a closer look at the motions of the Moon. It was refreshing to learn after so many years that it takes approximately 27 days for the moon to orbit the earth. I really loved the interactive video and visuals. It kept me engaged. The material presented in the Science Pak was very informative and helpful as a refresher.

5 The Origin and Evolution of the Universe
In listening to the Science Object about how astronomers years and years and many years ago collected evidence that suggest that a catastrophic and all-encompassing event occurred which brought our universe into being and set everything in the universe into motion may explain why some think and thank the universe for their existence versus God for their creation. It was interesting to learn from an astronomer’s point of view the origin of our universe. It was also interesting to learn that the universe existence is approximately 13 billion years old. The only thing that was a bit confusing for me to figure out at first was the Spectral Graphs of the Galaxies. Overall, the interactive video was informative and gave me a better understanding of the Universe.

5 A Look at the Planets
A Look at the Planets Taking a closer look at the Science Object on Planets really intrigued me. It was interesting to learn that J. Titius observed a pattern for the five known planets from which he created a formula for to calculate planetary orbits. Just as Kepler and Newton’s work intrigued him; his work intrigued the interest of others such as William Herschel who discovered a new planet in 1781 called the Georgium Sidus.; one that I had never heard of actually. I learned that Georgium Sidus was renamed Uranus, which is the name I am more familiar with. It’s amazing to think of the intelligence of mankind and how their interest led them to develop Spacecraft’s that would go as far as the moon successfully to get pictures for us to view that we would not ordinarily be able to see without Earth-based telescopes or robotic spacecraft’s . I had not really thought about just how similar Earth and Mars were until taking a closer look at both planets in the Science Pak. In looking at the Earth and Mars comparison made me realize why there have been quite a few visits there and will be many more. Hmmm interesting! We have come a long way since the early days of using naked eye observations and Earth bound telescopes. I’m curious to know the new discoveries 20 years from now.
