Tips and reminders about research:

    - Beware of the Tree Octopus and History of Numbers

    - Movies like The Martian and Gravity are not the best sources for learning science (same with history).

    - Be careful with dates!  Some websites might have very old info.

    - Scale.  Because the size of planets, stars, and the distance between them is so vast, many images are NOT to scale.

    - Artists Rendition. Many images on sites about objects beyond our atmosphere are created with computer graphics.
