On the second night, a few minutes after 8:30, I went out and yelled. Nearby were familiar – fresh jerky Bodadega sign, people and dogs group, bricks shine when the sun is so thin on its ancestry. The sky did not look particularly exotic, or I often started to fall into the blue-dark dark room to wash the color of the inclined tilt of the world to expand its roaming house.
But on this particular evening, I was not outside to settle in golden hours. I was trying to guess the high noon spirit on Pluto.
It goes without saying, but: Pluto is not Brooklyn. It is cold; it’s dark here; it is 4.67 billion miles away. Its differences are the army, and hard to imagine the hardest of them is difficult. No matter what image I bow down to enclose – an ice that is surrounded by ice cubes, the drops of snow drop me down – the concept of temperature slipping up to -387 degrees Fahrenheit is not calculated .
I’m never cold neither you nor we both have seen Twilight, or the moments after that, and this is not a bad guess as Pluto looks shiny. NASA has created a website called “Pluto Time” to imagine life there for Earth. You plug your address, and it spits the exact moment on that particular longitude and latitude, that the sky above you looks like above Pluto. Any other, obviously-the senses of the Earth may be excited for your attention-you can listen to the buses or the odor that roams around the house to build a house on the road car- but with the sight, the proxy for the drawer’s neighbor will be a proxy.
Space is huge and foreign. This is a basis for romance, but it is a cognitive obstacle to anyone trying to wrap their head. How do authors of the Royal Astronomical Society colleague Colin Stuart and the author come in space say, “We have a problem with space in general, if we try to understand something, then we have only one example – ours Is your planet “: What you should know for the future of non-distant drag.
Stuart says, “When we can, we always try to do things on earth.” “If you are starting with something, then they are not starting from the beginning.” They piled up volcanoes, valleys and trenches in space against the Grand Canyon or Everest, “because people have a frame of reference,” even if the features are quite different. (The highest Olympus Mons of the volcanic peak of Mars is 2.5 times longer than Everest, and broadly France’s breadth.)
Michelle Nicholas, director of public inspection at Adler Planetarium in Chicago, says, “As long as you are not involved in science, I can call any type of gabbaluke, but it does not make any sense to anyone.” Nicole often translates characteristics of the space, which might otherwise be accurate in familiar scenarios or childhood games to some degree. It compares the Sun’s spots, as it flashes through a telescope, for the filing of the iron iron under the path of a magnet. “People remember doing this,” she says. “They go, ‘Well, now I see it.'”
To a lesser extent, scientists also rely on equality in peer-reviewed papers. In recent paper of science, a team of researchers, including a planetary scientist from Brigham Young University, Janie Radebagh, and a physical geographer of Plymouth University, his colleague Matt Taylor reported on the tunes of Pluto, which look like something Desert or beaches of the earth. It may be that there is no connection from lightening a late audience on the images captured by the new horizon spacecraft, but one can turn on an analog lightbulb. Nicholas says, “They can only see a white background with some squiggles.” “As soon as you say, ‘it is like a tune of sand,’ he says, ‘Oh, waits a minute! I have gone to Indiana tunes; I have seen pictures of Sahara.’ ‘Pluto’s drift is not sand they are slopes of frozen methane-but the wind has given them sculpture in the same shape, and the laypeople can give the knowledge a stroller.
Stuart says that one of the Saturn’s moons is also for Titan’s radar maps. The map comes in the grip of islands, islands and peninsula, and Stuart thinks, “If you put a map of Titan next to the map of the Scottish coastline and you have made them the same color – about blue and green There is no debtor – you will struggle to separate them, “says Stuart. Canada will also work, he said, “There are chains along the islands and inlets with chains.” Analog can break some mental distance between the earth and space without any less attractive.
Even then, analogs are not always suitable. Nichols says, “Several decades ago, we were not sure what the surface of Venus was.” Through telescope, the planet seemed completely inclined in the clouds, and since the researchers did not know what was going on below them, some assumed that the scenario was steam-perhaps surrounded by water or wood tunnels. Was there. In the first part of the 20th century, there was an increase in the grip of science-fiction novels and comics, which depicted Venus as thick with carnivorous plants and crawling with swamps. Nicholas says, “this 100 percent has gone wrong.” “We learn more, we go, ‘Oh wait, that’s the entire surface temperature of 870 degrees, which cannot be so good for life.'”
No harm done. There is a real problem with conformity, Stuart says, when they finish the case and then get the traction. Then, they risk the curiosity of people’s curiosity to such an extent that, when a striking comparison actually occurs, the audience is uncompressed. He thinks that this is especially dangerous with exponents – those remote classes that we have not yet stopped. Stuart says, “In the last few years about astronomers have a lot of headlines about finding planets like Earth in other solar systems.” Phrasing enthusiasm sets up drums and bets; Stuart says that “Sometimes it is possible to torque” articles to make conclusions and readers relevant to press releases and research.
“The trouble is, we do not know how Earth [those planets] is like that,” he said further. But it adds a big “if,” and the difference is important. “The danger is that, if we continue to do ‘Planet like Earth’, and we go to the place where we get a planet like Earth with liquid water and an atmosphere with oxygen, then people are not necessarily That people are caring as much as they want, “he says. “They will get bored about it, I think.”
To some extent, our research centers on the planet again recreate the conditions of different environments in space. For the past few years, employees associated with the Earth have installed dome camps on the top of the volcano Mauna Loa on the Hawaiian island, whose hard soil looks like the bumpy terrain of Mars. In the program organized by the University of Hawaii and supported by NASA, the team tried to live like human Martian. They ate mid-meal meals, they slept and relieved themselves in the crushed quarters, and they were different from friends and family. Here, the earth was a dress rehearsal.
In the last winter, one of the practice exercises went wrong. After medical emergency, the whole thing was suspended, pending investigation. Bill Viking, one of the project’s supporters, told Marina Corrine in Atlantic, “We have learned all the ways to kill ourselves on Mars, and we have learned to stop those things.” “So it has been very valuable, because it is a better way to do it, where you can drive and go, God, a water valve was opened and now you have no water, instead of Mars. Where you like it, you do not have water; you are going to die in a few days. “Instead of highlighting the equality between our worlds, the same experiment insisted that we do not know how far and how else work it’s about to do
even conformity gives us a way to make sense of space, yet they highlight the earth. When we tell ourselves a story about the universe, then we are telling something about the restoration of our own planet at that time. This was particularly evident in the 19th century, when Parcel Lowell and other astronomers were surrounded in the “canal frenzy” that was churning around the Erie and Suez channels, suggesting that Mars was made of intelligent life. Shot with artificial waterways was shot. “Looking at these events, it is not surprising that Lowell and many of his contemporary ideas were open to the idea … that the canals can be found on most planets in the solar system,” Professor of Biology Ambits Klaus Brash writes in Sky & Telescope magazine, California State University. Through the telescope, the scene reflects something about life on the ground, because we could not overcome it.
Except for curiosity, most of us do not have to know what Pluto, Mars, or the Moon are- we do not need to practice the skills to live there on the ground, because we probably will never need it. If our jobs or life are not dependent on understanding the distant world characteristics, there is nothing but equivalent things between the Earth and the distant planet, but there are few things. They are more than that, though: thinking about another world, we can find hidden treasures of wonder in ourselves. Analog reminds us that space is “a strange place,” says Stuart. But “it is not strange, because it is also very familiar.”
Marie Roach, a science writer and author of Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Wide was animated when he told me about reporting on Devon Island, scientists had another physical analogue, which scientists imitated off-world missions. Used to He was bouncing on an ATV with a rugged, remote area of the Canadian island, in which two vehicles were tagged with the practice staff for the campaign. The surroundings were mescalificant-huge and monochromatic, which were stranded with some small flowers and a bambebi. “I was like ‘yeah’!” Roach says. In this scenario, tooling around an ATV was fun, and wondered, ‘I can be on the moon.’ It was exciting and fun and very beautiful. “Also familiar and attractive, surprisingly, comfortable odd.
