Title          
Astronomy - Orion 
   
 
Abstract

DVD: http://hilaroad.com/video/ This short astronomy video introduces the constellation Orion and M42, the Orion Nebula. Interesting stars in and around the constellation ... all » include Betelgeuse, Rigel and Sirius. Light year as a unit of distance is mentioned. Intended to support astronomy curriculum, grades 4 to 9. http://hilaroad.com/video/ Visit http://hilaroad.com/camp/projects.html for related projects including a starfinder.

Orion includes the prominent asterism known as the 'belt' of Orion: three bright stars in a row. Surrounding the belt at roughly similar distances are four bright stars, which are considered to represent the outline of the hunter's body. Apparently descending from the 'belt' is a smaller line of three stars (one of which is in fact not a star but the Orion Nebula), known as the hunter's 'sword'.

In artistic renderings, the surrounding constellations are sometimes related to Orion: he is depicted standing next to the river

Title          
The Hubble Deep Field: The Most Important Ima... 
   
 
Abstract

n 2003, the Hubble Space Telescope took the image of a millenium, an image that shows our place in the universe. Anyone who understands what this image represents, is forever changed by it.

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a telescope in orbit around the Earth, named after astronomer Edwin Hubble. Its position outside the Earth's atmosphere provides significant advantages over ground-based telescopes — images are not blurred by the atmosphere, there is no background from light scattered by the air, and the Hubble can observe ultra-violet light that is normally absorbed by the ozone layer in observations made from Earth. Since its launch in 1990, it has become one of the most important instruments in the history of astronomy. With it, astronomers have made many observations leading to breakthroughs in astrophysics. Hubble's Ultra Deep Field is the most sensitive astronomical optical image ever taken.

From its original conception in 1946 until its launch, the project to build a space telescope was beset by delays and budget problems. Immediately after its 1990 launch, it was found that the main mirror suffered from spherical aberration due to faulty quality control during its manufac...
