Re: [humanism-174] Fwd: NASA'S NuSTAR Reveals Flare From Milky Way's Black Hole

I'm very proud of my son...   I showed him the link for http://www.meetup.com/clevelandfreethinkers/events/88163912/?a=co1_grp&rv=co1  and told him we were going...

His immediate question:  Will they discuss Kepler 22b?

He's 12, almost 13!

lol

Even i had to google it to remind myself of what exactly it was, though I DID read about it when it was discovered....


My daughter (10 going on 11), on the other hand, is obsessing about seeing Aurora Borealis, since we are in the 9-11 year sun cycle's peak....




:)

That is crazy!  I thought this article was great:


I think this article sums it up.  Children do not learn (unless their parents are into it) about space and the universe.  I honestly did not get into it until about 10 years ago.  I can read about the universe all day and night on the internet.  I don't know too many children that are exposed to it and I think if they were, they would love it too.

I went off the subject a bit, but still - look how fascinating it is to us when we learn something new?  With the technology today, it seems that every day we are learning something new they found in our universe.  Children today would benefit so much from it.  Just as the article reads in one paragraph:

"Otherwise dull arithmetic exercises would be rejuvenated by counting the rings of Saturn, or the craters on Mercury or even estimating how many stars are in the Universe. "

Simultaneous brainage! :)

I looked up a few temps in contrast... surface of the Sun, a mere 10,000 F. At its core, 27,000,000 F. But I was surprised to find the highest "man-made" temperature ever attained on Earth was a staggering 4 Trillion C!

Wow- it says on the direct link to the images that "When the flare was at its peak, the black hole was consuming and heating matter to temperatures up to 180,000,000 degrees F"

Fascinating shots, almost direct shots of our galaxy's central black hole!
