The Y chromosome was discovered by Nettie Stevens at Bryn Mawr in 1905.

Only males have the Y chromosome. In humans, the Y chromosome represents only 1% of the total DNA in a male's cells.The Y chromosome contains 200 genes. 

Male smokers have between 1.5 and 2 times the risks of developing lung cancer than do females.

Males are also susceptible to defects in the X chromosome since males have only one X chromosome..

X is for X Chromosomes #atozchallenge

The human body is composed of 22 pairs of chromosomes and one pair of sex chromosomes. The female has two X chromosomes while the male has one X chromosome and one Y chromosome.

The female receives one X chromosome from her mother and one X chromosome from her paternal grandmother.

Males have only one X chromosome so they are likely to suffer from genetic X chromosome diseases.
The first X chromosome was isolated in 1890.

W is for Watson and Crick...also "W" Music for Monday's Music Moves Me #atozchallenge, #MondaysMusicMovesMe

Who are Watson and Crick?
They are the scientist who discovered the DNA molecule. The DNA molecule is a double helix. The late showman, Merv Griffin described the DNA molecule as "looking like a ladder that's been in a bad fire."

Watson and Crick received the Nobel Prize for their discovery. 

DNA has revolutionized police work. Before DNA a drop of blood left at a crime scene could only reveal blood type. DNA can identify the specific individual that blood belongs to.

U is for Universe #atozchallenge

What are the chances that we will find life elsewhere in the universe?
The Drake Equation attempts to answer that question. There are 200-400 million stars in the Milky Way Galaxy and there are hundreds of millions of galaxies in the universe.

N is the number of civilizations in the Milky Way Galaxy.
This number is derived by multiplying the following factors:

R is the rate of star formation
fp is the fraction of stars that created planets
ne is the number of Earth-like planets
fl is the fraction of planets that actually have life
fi is the fraction of planets that actually have intelligent life. 
fc is the fraction of planets that actually have interstellar communication.
L is the amount of time this civilization remains detectable

Drake got 12,000 when he solve this equation As Drakle was quoted as saying, "That's a lot of E.T.'s"

Quasars are found between 600 million and 28.85 billion light years away. .

P is for precession #atozchallenge

What is precession?

The Earth revolves on its axis once every 24 hours which forms our day. However, the Earth's axis is not a fixed point in space. The axis wobbles like a gyroscope or a child's toy top. Therefore, it points to a different set of stars. The period of precession is 26,000 years. Precession is the result of the Moon's and the Sun's gravitational pull on the Earth.

The Pole Star is the northern hemisphere is Polaris in 2015 A.D.  In 3000 B.C., the Pole Star was Thuban in the constellation of Draco. In 14,000 A.D., the Pole Star will be Vega in the constellation of Lyra.

O is for Oxygen #atozchallenge

The Earth's atmosphere is composed of 79% nitrogen, 20.59% oxygen and the rest consists of rare gases.
Oxygen is a key part of human respiration. Oxygen binds with the four available sites on the hemoglobin molecule. Hemoglobin, which is part of human blood carries the oxygen to the cells. In the cells, the oxygen is metabolized and carbon dioxide is the product, along with water of that metabolism.

Oxygen is critical to the brain and oxygen deprivation can cause  brain damage.

L is for levitate #atozchallenge

Can scientists cause objects to float in the air (levitate)?
In order for an object to levitate, an object must be lifted off of a surface, move in thin air to a different spot and remain afloat.
Scientists at the University of Japan have successfully caused objects to levitate by using ultrasonic sound waves. Heavier objects than electronic parts are levitated by increasing the sound waves.

K is for Kelvin Scale #atozchallenge

What is absolute zero?
The Kelvin Scale is a temperature scale at which absolute zero is a theoretical temperature. At absoluter zero all molecular movement ceases. The scale is designed so that one unit Kelvin is equal to one unit Celsius. All actual temperatures are above absolute zero. Water freezes at 273.16K and the boiling point of water is 373.16K.
The scale was developed by Lord Kelvin who was knighted by Queen Victoria in 1866. He also discovered the second law of thermodynamics which states that the quantity of energy in the universe is falling.
