This was my first time to do the A-Z blog Challenge.The A-to-Z-Challenge was very enjoyable. It was a pleasure to read blogs from such talented writers. I wish to hopefully read all the participants blogs.
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.
"W" Music! Link up with the gals from Monday's Music Moves Me below.
What are you doing the rest of your life? by Frank Sinatra
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"
Who was Nikola Tesla? Tesla (1856-1943) was an electrical engineer, mechanical engineer and futurist. He was best known for the design of the Alternating Current(AC) electrical supply system. His high-voltage, high-frequency designs were develped to produce wireless electric distribution and wireless lighting.
He was a competitor of Thomas Edison who was a proponent of Direct Current (DC). Edison won the "War of Currents" between DC and AC currents. After his death, he fell into obscurity. However, the FBI went to his hotel room and confiscated all of his drawings and papers.
His designed a death ray, which was a particle beam machine. Currently Israel is producing a particle beam which will destroy incoming weapons.
A satellite is a man made object which orbits the Earth. It is placed into orbit by means of a rocket ship.which lauches it in to orbit. The first satellite was called the Sputnik. It was launched into orbit by the former Soviet Union in 1957. Eventually, the satellite slows down in its orbit around the Earth. It then succumbs to Earth's gravity and burns up in the atmosphere.
Today there are many kinds of satellites. The first two communications satellites were named Telstar.. There are also weather satellites and military satellites.
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.
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.
Michelangelo (1475-1564) Michelangelo was a sculptor, painter, and architect. He designed the Pieta and the David. He painted The Last Judgement on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel and the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. He also designed and built St. Peter's Basilica.
Michelangelo had the uncanny ability to "see" the figure in a block of stone. For him, sculpturing was merely the art of removing the extraneous material.
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.
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.
