The Milky Way’s black hole is 26, light years away. Space We have estimated the size of our galaxy to be around , Light Years in Diameter. But the latest evidence may bring that size to almost , light-years in size. Great Attractor is a gravitational anomaly in intergalactic space at the center of the Laniakea Supercluster that reveals the existence of a localised concentration of mass tens of thousands of times more massive than the Milky Way. Higgs Boson – Hadron Collider Galactic Coordinate System is a celestial coordinate system in spherical coordinates, with the Sun as its center, the primary direction aligned with the approximate center of the Milky Way galaxy, and the fundamental plane approximately in the galactic plane. It uses the right-handed convention, meaning that coordinates are positive toward the north and toward the east in the fundamental plane. Celestial Navigation is the ancient art and science of position fixing that enables a navigator to transition through a space without having to rely on estimated calculations, or dead reckoning, to know their position. Celestial navigation uses “sights,” or angular measurements taken between a celestial body the sun, the moon, a planet or a star and the visible horizon. The sun is most commonly used, but navigators can also use the moon, a planet or one of 57 navigational stars whose coordinates are tabulated in the Nautical Almanac and Air Almanacs.

Strata Some of the most outstanding features of the Grand Canyon are the layers of sedimentary rock called strata that have been exposed by the erosion event that carved this immense canyon system. Layers of sedimentary rocks hundreds of feet thick blanket the world, and can be traced across entire continents and even correlated with layers on other continents. By comparing the sequence of layers from various areas, the cross section of strata known as the geological column was developed.
The strata seen in the photo at right were formed during the flood of Noah via hydrologic sorting. Due to continuous recent erosion, we are now able to see the layers formed during the flood. Tilted, deeply buried strata the “Grand Canyon Supergroup” show evidence of catastrophic-marine sedimentation and tectonics associated with the formation of an ocean basin midway through Creation Week, and may include ocean deposits from the post-Creation, but pre-Flood world.

Geologists working in different regions are studying sea levels, peat bogs and ice core samples by a variety of methods, with a view toward further verifying and refining the Blytt—Sernander sequence. They find a general correspondence across Eurasia and North America, though the method was once thought to be of no interest. The scheme was defined for Northern Europe , but the climate changes were claimed to occur more widely. The periods of the scheme include a few of the final pre-Holocene oscillations of the last glacial period and then classify climates of more recent prehistory.
If subdivision is necessary, periods of human technological development, such as the Mesolithic , Neolithic , and Bronze Age , are usually used. However, the time periods referenced by these terms vary with the emergence of those technologies in different parts of the world. According to some scholars, a third division, the Anthropocene , has now begun. Holocene marine fossils are known, for example, from Vermont and Michigan. Other than higher-latitude temporary marine incursions associated with glacial depression, Holocene fossils are found primarily in lakebed, floodplain, and cave deposits.
Holocene marine deposits along low-latitude coastlines are rare because the rise in sea levels during the period exceeds any likely tectonic uplift of non-glacial origin. The region continues to rise, still causing weak earthquakes across Northern Europe. The equivalent event in North America was the rebound of Hudson Bay , as it shrank from its larger, immediate post-glacial Tyrrell Sea phase, to near its present boundaries.
Climate has been fairly stable over the Holocene. Ice core records show that before the Holocene there was global warming after the end of the last ice age and cooling periods, but climate changes became more regional at the start of the Younger Dryas.

Ice-sheet dynamics Sampling the surface of Taku Glacier in Alaska. There is increasingly dense firn between surface snow and blue glacier ice. An ice core is a vertical column through a glacier, sampling the layers that formed through an annual cycle of snowfall and melt. At Summit Camp in Greenland, the depth is 77 m and the ice is years old; at Dome C in Antarctica the depth is 95 m and the age years. The bubbles disappear and the ice becomes more transparent.
Ice is lost at the edges of the glacier to icebergs , or to summer melting, and the overall shape of the glacier does not change much with time.
The thrid is radiometric dating, but if radiometric dating is inaccurate so will the age of the ice core. The fourth is ice flow calculations, but even talkorigins states “This is the most inaccurate of the methods used for dating ice-cores.”.
These volcanoes are within the Turkish—Iranian plateau, which is a consequence of the Arabia—Eurasia collision, but has a poorly constrained evolution and surface uplift history. Current plateau elevations are typically 1. Samples are from flows that passed along pre-existing river valleys. These rates imply slow surface uplift of this part of the Turkish—Iranian plateau during the Quaternary.
We therefore constrain the generation of the great majority of relief in the study area to be pre-Quaternary, and caused by the tectonic construction of the plateau, rather than a subcrustal origin related to the Quaternary magmatism. Continental neotectonics , Tectonics and landscape evolution , Asia 1 Introduction and Geological Setting In this paper we explore the relationships between tectonics, magmatism and landscape evolution in the Turkish—Iranian plateau, northwest Iran, to understand better the development of such orogenic plateaux in general.
Orogenic plateaux are constructed as a result of subduction at convergent continental margins or continent—continent collision. However their tectonic evolution and surface uplift history are not clearly understood, even though there may be consequences for climate on regional if not global levels Raymo et al.

The Downs and Redgate Beach, A brief comment from this follows: There once was a footbridge from this beach that went around the cliff to Anstey’s Cove, but than was taken down as it was claimed it was dangerous, but I feel it was removed to stop people getting onto Redgate beach. The locals defy orders not to use the beach and even today there was couple down on the beach and during the summer you will find plenty on the beach as it is one not known to our visitors.

Advanced Search Summary We investigate mountain building in the Altai range of western Mongolia, focusing on Baatar Hyarhan, a NW-trending massif bounded by active thrust faults. Our primary aims are to describe how thrusting has evolved over time, to calculate late Quaternary slip rates by dating offset alluvial markers with optically stimulated luminescence OSL and to compare these late Quaternary rates with measurements of deformation on decadal and geological timescales.
Patterns of topography and drainage suggest that Baatar Hyarhan has grown in length and has propagated laterally from the SE towards the NW over time. On the NE side of the massif, the range-bounding Zereg fault appears active only along younger parts of Baatar Hyarhan; next to the oldest, SE part of the massif faulting has migrated into the adjacent Zereg Basin, where it has uplifted low, linear ridges of folded sediment, known locally as forebergs.
On the SW side of the massif, only the range-bounding Tsetseg fault appears active. These ages are close to those of alluvial markers in the separate Gobi Altai range, suggesting that periods of fan and terrace formation may correlate over wide tracts of Mongolia, presumably under the primary control of climate. Uncertainties in fault dip due to lack of clear fault exposures and burial ages due to incomplete resetting of the luminescence clock mean that the exact slip rates are poorly constrained.

Pro Radiometric dating is the method for establishing the age of objects by measuring the levels of radioisotopes in the sample. One example is carbon dating. Carbon 14 is created by cosmic rays in the upper atmosphere. It decays to nitrogen 14 with a half life of years. C14 is continually being created and decaying, leading to an equilibrium state in the atmosphere.
When the carbon dioxide, containing C14 as well as stable C12 and C13, is taken in by plants it is no longer exposed to the intense cosmic ray bombardment in the upper atmosphere, so the carbon 14 isotope decays without being replenished. Measuring the ratio of C14 to C12 and C13 therefore dates the organic matter for periods back to about eight half-lives of the isotope, 45, years.
After a long enough time the minority isotope is in an amount too small to be measured. There are about two dozen decay pairs used for dating. Uranium decay to lead has a half-life of million years, so it is well suited to dating the universe. Some radiometric dating methods depend upon knowing the initial amount of the isotope subject to decay. For example, the C14 concentration in the atmosphere depends upon cosmic ray intensity.
To take this into account, a calibration curve is developed using other dating methods to establish the C14 levels over time. Other methods do not require knowing the initial quantities.
