Scientists searching for water among the stars may have a new ally with an earthly counterpart: hail. Microwaves form the millimeter end of the radio spectrum and are important for studies of the cosmic microwave background radiation. Since then, more than 1,600 teams of students and interested individuals have purchased non-profit radio telescope kits and are learning radio astronomy by building and operating a radio telescope. County Executive Mark Poloncarz was on hand to announce the support and to share his personal excitement to help make astronomy experience a reality again for all of Western New York in 2017.

The time Saturn takes to go once around the sun, a Saturn year, is a little more than 29 Earth years. The astronomy club arranged star parties throughout the summer months on the Saturday night nearest the new moon (or no moon). Point out the marked constellations and tell students that the grouping of stars that make a constellation form a pattern. To help people “see the light”, an international star-hunting program for students, teachers, and the general public was created called GLOBE at Night.

Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment, also known as GLOBE, is a worldwide, hands-on science and education program for primary and secondary schools. There are, however, many remnants of Supernovae explosions in our galaxy, that are seen as X-ray shell like structures caused by the shock wave propagating out into the interstellar medium.

Stephen Hawking and others spoke about the future of space exploration as part of a lecture series to mark the 50th anniversary of NASA. The neutron star, the crushed ultra-dense core of the exploded star, like a lighthouse, ejects twin beams of radiation that appear to pulse 30 times a second due to the neutron star's rotation. Continued fusion not only releases the energy that is radiated but also results in nucleosynthesis, the production of heavier nuclei.
