Английский The field of space and
astronomy is devoted to the study of the heavenly bodies, their behavior, and
characteristics. As the oldest natural science, knowledge of astronomy has come
from some of the world's greatest scientists, including Copernicus, Galileo,
and Einstein. Astronomy experiments are not only historically important, but
they also provide knowledge of basic scientific principles, such as how early
thinkers disproved the notion that Earth is the center of the solar system.
Modern astronomy relies on technology that has been invented in the last few
decades, and current research includes space travel, satellites, and telescopes
that interpret radiation from all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
"Space and Astronomy Experiments" provides teachers with 20 new and
original experiments that help students learn basic scientific principles and
important skills. Presenting experiments from all areas, including physics and
geology, the text contains proven classroom experiments that broaden
understanding of both science facts and the nature of space and astronomy.
