Enhance your astronomy science fair project with Kepler’s third law…

Kepler's 3rd Law of Planetary Motion

Kepler’s third law is all about the timing of the planets’ orbits. It states, “the ratio between the square of the time needed by a planet to make a revolution around the sun and the cube of its average distance from the sun is the same for all planets.” This law can be expressed in […]

Kepler's 2nd Law of Planetary Motion

Kepler introduced multiple theories that related to the movement of the planets. His second law was that “a planet moves so that its radius vector sweeps out equal areas in equal times.” You can use this information to create an astronomy science fair project for a science fair competition.

Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion

Students working on astronomy science fair projects can benefit from learning about Kepler’s Laws and the basic theories behind the science of astronomy like Kepler’s first law. This law state is based on the assumption that planetary orbits are ellipses and that the sun provides one of the elliptical foci. Kepler’s 1st Law: The orbits […]

When we see the universe what are we seeing?

When we look at the universe are we seeing the past, present or future?

When we gaze at the night sky do you believe that you are looking at the universe as it exists? Are we seeing that moment in time or are we seeing into the future, or are we seeing time in the past? Actually, many of the photons that you are seeing have traveled for billions […]

Two Earth-sized Planets Discovered…

Well it has finally happened. After years of searching space for possible earth-like planets, a couple have been found. The tool used to find these new planets was the Kepler Space Telescope. What this indicates is that earth-like conditions are possible on other planets, however, size alone does not indicate the possibility of life. In […]
