Saturn’s moon Titan is the only world - other than earth - that we know has liquid’s pooled on its surface. Unlike Earth, Titan has lakes of liquid methane - you wouldn’t want to swim in these lakes. Titan’s “methane cycle” is analogy to Earth’s water cycle. In the 3rd and 4th images above we can see…

Aristarchus heliocentric model

Aristarchus heliocentric model


Aristarchus (310 BC - circa 230 BC) was a Greek astronomer and mathematician, born in Samos, Greece. He is the first recorded person to propose a heliocentric model of the solar system, placing the Sun, not the Earth, at the center of the known universe (hence he is sometimes known as the Greek Copernicus ). His astronomical ideas were not well-received and were subordinated…

There was confetti on the ground and a broken man walked over it all to claim his trophy and none of us knew. We had learned Landon Donovan was stepping away from soccer before the 2012 postseason began. He announced his body had told him to take a break, that he would have to push through the final games of the season, that eight years of anything is a long time. It didn’t…

Modern solar system model

Modern solar system model


All standard planetary formation models, when applied to the solar system, are stymied by the Mars Problem. The most sophisticated planetary system models can explain the masses and orbits of the solar system’s four gas giant planets, Mercury, Venus, and Earth. According to these models, however, Mars should be as massive as, or a little more massive than, Earth—but it’s not;…

Sun Centered model

Sun Centered model


Copernicus is often described as a lone astronomer who defiantly argued that the sun, not the Earth was at the center of the cosmos. Copernicus contributions to astronomy are so significant that they warrant their own term: The Copernican Revolution. The story of this revolution is problematic for several reasons. First, as much as Copernicius ideas broke with the past, his…

I get asked this question, or…

Johannes Kepler contributions to Astronomy

Johannes Kepler contributions to Astronomy


German astronomer Johannes Kepler used mathematics to calculate the path of the planets, finding that they traveled not in circles, as long expected, but in ellipses. Credit: Johnnes Kepler Gesammelte Werke, C. H. Beck, 1937 Johannes Kepler Facts Born in December of 1571, young Kepler was a sickly child of poor parents. He was awarded a scholarship to the University of Tübingen…

Asked by Robert Neale The word collide invokes imagery of high energy galactic collisions and it is easy to imagine that burning stars as well as planets will smash together, obliterating each other in the process. With a collision between the Andromeda galaxy and our own Milky Way galaxy are predicted to occur in the next four billion years or so, it sounds like an apocalyptic…
