January 19 2013 Astronomy Newsletter


Hi everybody

Here's the latest article from the Astronomy site at BellaOnline.com.

Space at the Science Museum London
Where can you see the Apollo 10 command module and the original mirror for William Herschel's Great Forty-Foot telescope? In the Science Museum in South Kensington, London, England. And there is quite a lot more on offer to those interested in space and astronomy.

*Bode's birthday*

Johann Elert Bode was born on January 19, 1747. He was the author of the greatest star atlas of the Golden Age of star atlases. Today he is still known for Bode's Law, which is neither a law nor original to Bode. It did inspire the hunt for a planet in what turned out to be the asteroid belt. You can read more about him here: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art42694.asp

*New astronomy quiz*
I've written an online quiz about astronomers called “Which astronomer?” All of the answers – and the choices – are astronomers who have appeared in articles on the astronomy site and often in the newsletters. Nobody's looking over your shoulder, so try it out. The answers all have the URL of an article with more information. For some painless learning: http://www.bellaonline.com/misc/quiz/quizdtl468

If you haven't tried the “10 Basic Astronomy Facts”, that's at: http://www.bellaonline.com/misc/quiz/quizdtl410 These questions come from the school curriculum and each answer has an explanation and a URL to a relevant article.

*Fire damage to Australian observatories*
Bush fires in Australia have caused damage to Siding Springs Observatory, home of one of the world's major optical telescopes, the Anglo-Australian Telescope, and another ten telescopes from various nations. Wildfire ran through the area almost exactly ten years to the day after a fire destroyed historic Mount Stromlo Observatory. Preventative measures put in place after this have limited the damage at Siding Springs. There are updates on the astronomy forum:
