Astronomy and Astrophysics - UCLan If the vastness of space is something you find fascinating then these subjects will be particularly attractive. Astronomy and Astrophysics are intellectually stimulating disciplines where you will gain an insight into some of the most extreme environments known to humanity. You will investigate the fundamental workings of stars and the universe, whilst developing your own scientific skills and experiences. Our teaching is supported by internationally recognised research within the Centre for Astrophysics. For example, UCLan astronomers lead the UK's involvement in the Southern African Large Telescope - the largest single optical instrument in the southern hemisphere. The degree programmes, especially the four-year MPhys route, provide a strong and mature foundation for astronomical research. The next step would be to push back the frontiers yourself and, on average, 40% of our graduates go on to masters courses or to PhD research both here and in other Universities across the world. In addition, there is a growing demand for scientists who have the ability to make measurements, ***yse the results and present the data using the latest technological advances. Governments have recognised that there is a short-fall in science graduates who possess these highly employable skills. Our recent graduates have found employment in industry, government research institutes, overseas observatories, the financial markets, the teaching profession and scientific journalism. Teaching ...

Astrophysicist Calls for Human Probe of Cosmos The British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking is renowned for his exploration of the mysteries of the cosmos, from the frontiers of outer space to the nature of black holes. In Washington on NASA's (the US space agency's) 50th anniversary recently, Hawking called for a renewed manned space program that would take people to the outer reaches of the solar system. VOA's Rosanne Skirble reports Hawking speaks of human space flight with the scientific passion that has made him famous

For 12-year old astrophysics prodigy, the sky's the limit In some ways, Jacob Barnett is just like any other 12-year-old kid. He plays Guitar Hero, shoots hoops with his friends, and has a platonic girlfriend. But in other ways, he's a little different. Jake, who has an IQ of 170, began solving 5000-piece jigsaw puzzles at the age of 3, not long after he'd been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a mild form of autism. A few years later, he taught himself calculus, algebra, and geometry in two weeks. By 8, he had left high school, and is currently taking college-level advanced astrophysics classes—while tutoring his older classmates. And he's being recruited for a paid researcher job by Indiana University.
Becoming an astrophysicist Phil Evans from the University of Leicester talks about why he became an astrophysicist and why he loves the job. This is some "extra interview footage" from a film we made about a day in the life of astrophysicists. See the original video at

Wave59 Market Astrophysics Part 1 Earik Beann demonstrating the powerful Market Astrophysics tools - exclusively on Wave59 Genius Features™: Predictive Price Forecasting Integrated NASA Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) data Advanced Graphical Ephemeris Using Astrophysics to help ***yze and predict markets is a powerful tool that separates the novice from the advanced trader, and one available only from Wave59. Not only can Wave59 convert the degrees of each planet to a price level, it can also plot planetary averages and aspects as well. The user has complete control over what planets to use in the plots, and exactly how many price points each degree is worth. Example: the price levels set by averaging four planets positions. The harmonic index measures the relationship between all planets and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange throughout the day. Turning points occur at major peaks in this index. Using data from NASAs Joint Propulsion Laboratory, it is possible to plot the index indefinitely forward into the future making future market estimates quick, easy and powerful.

469 - ClimateGate: Astrophysicist Giuliana Conforto about the Global Warming Hoax! Also watch "Copernican Illusions": Also watch "Organic EVOLUTION screen": From the book cover of "Organic Universe" - you can get the book through www.giulianaconforto.it Electromagnetic light shows us a deserted universe, actually a set of illusory images. A "new" Light unveils the eternal Organic Universe, composed of infinite, intelligent worlds. It is the force physics calls "weak", men cannot see, but can feel. It is music, cosmic Life, consciousness that a new world is possible and already exists. Giuliana Conforto was formerly an astrophysicist and taught Theoretical Physics. Her scientific research concerned relativistic theories and quantum physics. Deeply involved with Giordano Bruno, she has integrated opposite cultures, such as sciences and religions, discovering their "missing link" the scientific name of the Force that is eternal Life. Applying various ways of knowing, Giuliana conforto has renamed the scientific discoveries from a human point of view and rewritten a "new" human story that involves many different planets and systems. She has founded a "new" science, Organic Physics, which involves co-science and the deep transformation Earth's surface and humans are now undergoing. She proposes a radical paradigm shift, the emergence of an organic society, able to conjugate individual freedom and collective harmony, a New Renaissance.

1. Introduction Frontiers/Controversies in Astrophysics (ASTR 160) Professor Bailyn introduces the course and discusses the course material and requirements. The three major topics that the course will cover are (1) exoplanets--planets around stars other than the Sun, (2) black holes--stars whose gravitational pull is so strong that even their own light rays cannot escape, and (3) cosmology--the study of the Universe as a whole. Class proper begins with a discussion on planetary orbits. A brief history of astronomy is also given and its major contributors over the centuries are introduced: Ptolemy, Galileo, Copernicus, Kepler, and Newton. Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website: open.yale.edu This course was recorded in Spring 2007.

Palestinian Astrophysicist in US Recounts How His 11-Year-Old Son Died in a Israeli Warplane Bombing, 1 of 2 As the Palestinian death toll in Israels assault on Gaza climbs above 1100, we take a look behind the statistics. Suleiman Baraka is a Palestinian astrophysicist working at Virgnia Tech with NASA. His eleven-year-old son Ibrahim was killed in an Israeli air strike on his house. His wife and three other children are now homeless in Gaza, along with seven*** members of his family. In his first broadcast interview in the US, Suleiman Baraka tells his story. We also speak with Suleimans brother, Sayed, who arrived at the house seconds after it was bombed.
