In The News...
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.
