FoxNews.com reports that Dr. Richard B. Hoover, an astrobiologist at NASA, believes that he has found the fossils of bacteria in meteorites. In other words, he claims to have found traces of life from outer space.

Not surprisingly, his claim is controversial; many scientists do not accept that Dr. Hoover has come to the correct conclusion from what he has observed. Therefore, he has invited over 5,000 scientists to review his work and to publish their comments.

***************

From Reading Comprehension Worksheet:

Beware of the monsters
Who dwell in the mind,
Who grow in the shelter
Of shadows they find.

Beware of the demons
Who hide from the light,
Who only survive
When our spirits lose sight.

Those creatures can thrive
Where our knowledge is low;
They fill in the spaces
Of what we don t know.

Beware of the monsters
That cause us to hate,
To strike out in anger
When we can t relate.

Thanks for the start to the lives that we ve had.
Thanks for the nights that you went without rest.
So many memories, most happy, some sad;
If you weren t perfect, you still passed the test,
Holding our hands, holding back all the fears.
Thank you sincerely for all of those years.

So many hours that you worked to provide
Multiplied by all the days that we grew,
When we behaved and the times we defied,
Never a doubt we could still count on you,
Making our laughter and drying our tears.
Thank you sincerely for all of those years.

Thanks for the rules that we wished were not there.
Thanks for the wisdom we sometimes denied.
All the attention and all of the care,
All the forgiveness and all of the pride,
Pointing out faults but then calling out cheers.
Thank you sincerely for all of those years.

Memories from childhood stay with us forever,
Taking us where we have been and will go,
Pieces of life that live on and will never
Let us forget we were young long ago.

Sometimes I wander back into those shadows,
Quietly being who I used to be,
Bringing to life all the joys and the sorrows,
Days that can t die while they still live in me.

Holidays linger and happy times glisten;
I can see everyone active and well.
I can still hear them if only I listen,
Feeling each motion and breathing each smell.

Life has such treasures that time s always stealing;
Nothing can ever entirely stay.
While you are young, you can capture each feeling;
Make all the memories you can every day.

Why Do Math? Space Travel #best #travel #websites

#space travel
#

By Dr. Shane Ross

Getting from point A to B in space usually requires considerable quantities of propellant. But after it blasted off from Earth, the Genesis probe was able to travel 1.5 million kilometers. More.

Contrary to everyday experience on Earth, the most efficient route through space may not be a straight line. Some mathematicians and NASA engineers have learned in recent years that take best advantage of gravity, and save fuel in the process, it may be necessary to make bizarre loops through space.

Take for example the Genesis spacecraft. In 2004, it started on its way home after having spent two years collecting solar particles in orbit around a Lagrange point. a point between Earth and the Sun where the gravity of both bodies is balanced.

But Genesis did not come straight home. It took a long curvy path, going past the Earth to make an extended million-mile loop (around another Lagrange point) before coming back to Earth. Amazingly, this seeming impractical path actually saves fuel by making use of gravity in the Earth-Sun system.

The design of interplanetary space probes can now be done by taking advantage of the competing gravitational tugs of the different planets and their moons, which create a vast network of passageways by which a spacecraft can travel over large distances while expending very little energy. Without recent advances in mathematics and computation, these fuel-saving, mission-enabling paths through space could not be found.

Purplemath

Need help with math?
Start browsing Purplemath’s free resources below!

Practial Algebra Lessons: Purplemath’s algebra lessons are informal in their tone, and are written with the struggling student in mind. Don’t worry about overly-professorial or confusing language! These math lessons emphasize the practicalities rather than the technicalities, demonstrating dependably helpful techniques, warning of likely “trick” test questions, and pointing out common student mistakes.

Content Continues Below

MathHelp.com

Need a custom math course?
K12 | College | Test Prep

These free lessons are cross-referenced to help you find related material, and the Search box on every page is available to help you find whatever math content you’re looking for.

Before going to class, some students have found it helpful to print out Purplemath’s math lesson for that day’s topic. Purplemath’s pages print out neatly and clearly. You can take notes in the margins or on the flip-side of each sheet. Then, after class, return here for the next topic. Let Purplemath help you always be prepared!

Homework Guidelines: English teachers tell their students explicitly how to format their papers: what fonts, what page margins, what style guides, etc. Math teachers, on the other hand, frequently just complain amongst themselves in the faculty lounge about how messy their students’ work is. Meanwhile, their students wonder why they’ve lost points on homework and tests.

Neat homework can aid your comprehension and might make your teacher like you better. Purplemath’s Homework Guidelines for Mathematics will give you a leg up, explaining in clear terms what your math teacher is looking for. The Guidelines link to examples of common errors, and demonstrate techniques that your instructors will love! In addition, students who get in the habit of explaining themselves clearly in their homework gain greater understanding of what they’re doing, and therefore tend to do much better on their tests.

Don’t leave easy points on the table! Study these Guidelines. print out this formatting PDF, and improve your learning, retention, and test scores!

Study Skills Self-Survey: Many students, from time to time, wonder, Do I have what it takes to succeed in math? Much of one’s success or failure in algebra can be laid at the feet of one’s study habits. Do you have good math study habits? Take this survey and find out.

Personalized Help ($): Investigate hiring a qualified tutor in your local area (US only), or try e-mail tutoring from Purplemath’s author. But for in-depth, quality, video-supported, at-home help, including self-testing and immediate feedback, try MathHelp.com. MathHelp.com comes highly recommended by homeschoolers, military service members, and other practical people. If you’re needing more intensive help, give MathHelp.com a try!
