From Quiz Astrophysics for Kids! (click to take quiz) What is the name for scientists who focus on observations of the skies? Through the Asteroid Grand Challenge, NASA is partnering with Tongal on a contest with a total of $20,000 in awards to seek creative videos that engage and excite the public about getting involved in NASA’s mission to find and characterize asteroids. Water is a key ingredient for life as we know it, and its presence seems to have driven biological development right from the start. “The fact that on Earth life emerged quickly just after conditions became habitable suggests that this could happen often in other systems, too,” says Daniel Apai, an astronomy and astrobiology researcher at the University of Arizona and the NASA Astrobiology Institute. “Life persisted for about four billion years on Earth and survived a variety of planetary challenges, suggesting that it is very difficult to ‘sterilize’ a planet once it’s taken a foothold,” he adds. “So chances are good that life is relatively common in the galaxy.” If we ever do find aliens, would they be anything like the beings that populate Star Trek?

The first postulate is the relativity principle: local physics is governed by the theory of special relativity. Although MIT does not have a formal Astronomy Department, undergraduate academic programs in astronomy at MIT reside both in the Department of Physics ( astrophysics ) and the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (planetary astronomy), which offer a variety of courses in astronomy and astrophysics.

It tells, rather, the story of why it is important to observe celestial objects from outer space and how to study the entire electromagnetic spectrum. More details, including the dates, can be found in the Astroquiz information and rules, which are available as a PDF and a Word document. While the show writers have imagined some highly unique creatures, from non-corporeal energy beings to intelligent clouds, most aliens encountered by the Enterprise crew have been carbon-based life-forms that are all too often humanoid.
