There blogs that I learn the most about was the Milky Way, Solar System, and the size and age of the Universe. This three blogs I want to say it blew up my mind because these were the least things that would cross off my mind. Personally I have never thought about how the universe was formed and the billions of years that it took to developed also the formation of each and every one element of our solar system.
Before I started this class I was kind of afraid because I thought that astronomy was only for people who knew how to make sky observations. I was also afraid because everyone who knew about me taking this class would make negative comments about the class and the hard that it is to learn about space events. Things that surprised me the most about universe were how space works, before I started this class I would never knew that we were living in galaxy and that in this galaxy many space objects were flying around it. It is amazing how stars are formed every day and the time it takes for a stars to finally shine in the admospher of our Milky Way. It is amazing how many stars can exist in our space in the blog that I posted about the Milky Way I learned that in our milky way there is only 1% of stars comparing to how many stars are there in the universe.
Our Solar System blog was another blog that I learn so much about it. It was a blog were I learned the many planets that make part of our solar system. I believe I had a great time reading about it. It was nice to know about the different components of all the planets. It was also interesting that planets have different tempeatures in it. I also learned that earth is the only planet that can give life. It was interesting how all the different planets orbit the sun at a different speed and motion and shapes of the planets and that our solar system does not just consist of plates it is also composed of bright stars and the moon which makes a fundamental part of earth.
Reading about the size and age of our universe was like reading about something out of this world. Just by immaging what it took for the universe to be in the right shape that it is now is totally out of my range of thinking. 13.82 billion years old is the age of the universe. I could not imaging how the universe was born. It also interesting he size of our universe wich is 46 billion years ligh. Just by immaging the size of the universe it make me feel small.
Most of the the time I enjoyed writing posts because it gave more confidence on how to read and learn about the importance of our space phenomenons. I felt that I earned how our solar system works and that the sky does not move. Our planets moves on its axis and that it takes 24 hours for it to make a complete turn arround. it was also nice to know that stars are stationary and that because of them we would not exist. I think that learning about current events gave me more confidence and helped me to be informed about different things that happend every day in space. I would strongly recommend astronomy classes to my peers because is a clase that anyone can learn from it.
Not having to do quizzes in class made feel comfortable because it was not timing and I could do them in my own time. After taking this class it has made me feel more like a human than before. Now I feel that I notice more about current events in space. Now I know why stars shine I also learned how to appreciate life in general. With what I learn in astronomy I can tech my future generation to come.
