Title: Exploring the Inner Space of the Celebes Sea 2007 Date: September 27 – October 16, 2007

Mission Summary:

The 2007 mission to explore the Inner Space of the Celebes Sea became an exclusive opportunity to connect explorers and scientists from America and several Philippines universities and research agencies south of the Philippines Islands in search of fishes, jellyfish, squids, and shrimp that live in the dark deep waters. The Celebes Sea was picked for the mission because this sea is located just north of equator and is called the center of the most biologically diverse area of the world’s ocean. It is 5,000 meters deep but is surrounded by much shallower ocean waters, and as a result these waters became the home for species living in isolation from other surrounding waters, and waiting to be discovered using new exploration tools.

A ship Hydrographer Presbitero designed only for 40 people, gathered sixty-one, including 28 scientists and researchers. They worked together for almost two weeks to collect samples, videos, images, and data to increase our understanding of the biological composition and the nature of the deep mid-water environment of the Celebes Sea. Scientists wanted to compare the samples and all information with what is known about other deep-sea regions around the world. The expedition has begun in the Port of Manila and then continued south through the Sulu Sea to the study site, southeast of the Sulu Archipelago, where the bottom falls off rapidly to the sea floor thousands of meters below. To collect and observe rare and unknown species, the scientists and marine biologists used different technologies like trawling, scuba diving, a rope camera and a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) The Global Explorer, equipped with a high definition (HD) color video…...

Inquiring About the Inner Energy as a Unconscious Source of Creativity

...JFKU February 7, 2013 February 7, 2013 Inquiring about the inner energy as a unconscious source of Creativity Opposite Forces: Inner Inquiring about the inner energy as a unconscious source of Creativity Opposite Forces: Inner Opposite forces: inner The question of how to access the creative source as an artist is a constant and many times difficult search to understand for me. I have learned to let go of structures and to draw inspiration from intuition and my "inner space," that quiet place I can go to rest, dream, and energize. I can go there through meditation, reading poetry, listening to music, or just sitting quietly observing nature, and many times through dreaming. I have approached the exploration of the opposites “inner/outer” by answering the call of nature. I have intuitively been investigating the “inner” energy for a few months without being aware of it. I started to recognize it when pulling recent artwork discovered that I have been working with water, the ocean, and mountains. These elements were very much present in most of them. With the vast open space represented by these places at first I misread the inner as the outer and was confused for a while not feeling where to go with it now. The “outer self” was not manifesting, then I seem to feel the ocean waves inside of me getting to the realization that the energy calling was from my inner self in a sacred space near my heart. Both, mountains and ocean bring deep feelings of joy,...

Exploring Self

...Mengfei Zhou (Candy) English 111-Essay 3 October 23, 2011 Exploring Self Fighting against social expectations and conventional morals on the journey of progressing-liberation, women have to insist on the quest for female identity with unrelenting passion during a male-dominated period. According to Fox-Genovese’s argument that Edna’s immaturity allows her to question her social position as a social truth. However, I would argues that, in The Awakening written by Kate Chopin, Edna sets an impressive example that presents us with a figure who takes a weary and tough journey in seeking liberation and authentic identity in a complex society, along with exploring self. The courageous soul seems to be the essential beacon guiding her through this tough tunnel, whereas, she finally understands that being herself in an authentic society will be the first step in truly achieving liberation. Quite a few people claim that Edna already has an authentic life, since she is well protected by her husband, who looks at his wife “as one looks at a valuable piece of personal property which has suffered some damage” (The Awakening, Page 4) My view, however, is that this has the same meaning as Edna being a caged bird who is not fully understood by others. The author writes: “Her eyebrows were a shade darker than her hair. They were thick and almost horizontal, emphasizing the depth of her eyes. She was rather handsome than beautiful.” (The Awakening, Page 5) We learn that Edna’s......

...HOW America feel about Space Exploration Research Methods SS3150 May 08, 2013 How America feel about Space Exploration The space exploration has been a huge program for research and human knowledge. It has brought so many concerns, questions and suggestions which has engaged and, affected American’s in their everyday lives. Some of the research questions that I came up with which are appropriate for qualitative research are for example first, how does the earth interact with the neighboring planets? Second, how does space exploration help in securing our planet? And the third question is how does the exploration improve our lives economically? The explanation as to why these three questions are appropriate for qualitative research is that for one, the question of how does the earth interact with the neighboring planets, is a question which does not require any thought of numbers when answering because, one can simply answer that the earth interacts with the neighboring planets by how they all get the light from the sun. The target population on this question can be young or old and questionnaires would be the best sample to the participants for this research. The second question on how does space exploration help in securing our planet is also appropriate for qualitative research and, it shows or it can bring suggestions for example, that the technology used in space exploration is very highly advanced and that people feel safe because it sends signals of anything......

Space is very important for Europe, it provides essential information to decisionmakers to respond to global challenges. Outer space helps us to understand our planet as well as the universe and provides us with indispensable information. According to scientists our solar system emerged more than 4600 million years ago. Since then we could observe a different evolution of its planets and moons. Space companies from all over the world have set scientific goals to find out how our earth works, and whether life on Mars ever existed or maybe is still active. Nowadays this is one of the most important questions, not only because mankind is preparing human exploration of the Red Planet. After the Big Bang, 15 billion years ago, the universe was extremely hot. As we know today, matter did not exist at that time. The process that led protons and electrons to form into stars, galaxies and eventually living creatures, still remains largely unknown. Space telescopes such as Hubble and ESA’s XMM-Newton and Integral are constantly studying the universe behind the visible light, observing and monitoring objects with extreme density, gravity and temperature. As we know, satellites are unique in their ability to constantly monitor the earth and provide a lot of information about our everchanging planet. From space, we monitor many natural but also......

From Sea to Shining Sea

...Drugs in AMerica | From Sea to Shining Sea | Patricia Diaz | 000348122 | GLT 1 111.6.2 | 2/5/2014 | | “Drugs in America from sea to shining sea” Drug use in the United States has been on a steady rise. This is largely due to the increasing popularity of Marijuana. Marijuana was on the decline from the 1990s to mid to late 2000s but has been on a steady increase since then. This is due to the changing perception and attitudes towards marijuana. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2013, 7.0 percent of 8th graders, and 22.7 percent of 12th graders used marijuana in the last month. Why this sharp increase? This is related to state’s passing of legislation for the legalization of marijuana. This cannot help in the war on drugs. The use of marijuana has been shown to be the gateway to other more illicit drugs. Medical Marijuana has been in use for many years in the United States. It has been touted as the new miracle drug. While there are benefits to this drug the long term effects are still being analyzed. It has been said to help prevent blindness from Glaucoma; an appetite stimulant in Aids patients; and helps controls muscle spasms in Multiple Sclerosis patients. It can also have negative side effects such as paranoia, feeling of panic, hallucinations, and anxiety. People also have complained to short term memory loss, mood swings, perceptions and information processing. Why are there two different spectrum of the......

Space Race

...Alen Sonny Mr. Lewis APUSH Period 5 13 April, 2014 The War between Communism and Democracy for Dominance of Space The Space Race was a war of firsts between the United States of America and the Union Soviet Socialist Republics. But it was also the culmination of the dreams of man for many millennia and the team who worked on the space programs was able to discover what so many of the people that came before and after them could only dream of. It was an endeavor that all of humanity was invested in at the time. It was a testament to the power of the human spirit and it showed how nothing was impossible if we persevered and strived to be better. The space race did not start as one would expect with the respective American and Soviet space agencies. But rather it began with the German V2 missile launches towards the end of World War 2. The V2 missile was designed by Wernher Von Braun a German scientist who had dreamed of traveling to the moon for many years; however this dream had to be secret as it was considered to be treasonous and not helpful to the German cause. Von Braun and many other amateur rocketeers were drafted into the German war machine in order to help build a super weapon and their base was Peenemünde. When the war was nearing its end the Third Reich unleashed its secret weapon, the V2 missile. It could hit anywhere within its target range and there would be no warning. When it hit, it caused scenes of mass destruction. The V2 missiles were to be Hitler’s...

...Night time in space It is very easy to get busy up here and forget to “stop and smell the roses” as it were. (I think that is probably true for all of us everywhere!) So after dinner and before bedtime tonight I finally stopped and took a moment to watch the world go by during a night pass. It seems like it has been a while since I have done this. There are always excuses…other things that have to get done, e-mails to write, feet to warm up, too tired, there is always another day...blah, blah, blah. But I put my foot down, figuratively speaking, and took the time. We were passing up through the Atlantic going north across Africa and Europe and arcing down through Asia to come out east of Australia and New Zealand into the Pacific. I do not know exactly where we were but it was already night when I positioned myself at the docking compartment window. I think it was the one facing more starboard. I always get myself mixed up when I go into that module; I can never easily find the hatch again. It is completely night. There are thunderstorms across Africa and lightning is everywhere; bright flashes are going cloud to cloud illuminating the clouds as it arcs from one to the other. It is a private fireworks show. The storm is large and very spread out and at any moment you see 4 or 5 flashes occurring at one time, each one only lasting a moment. The colors range from something orange-ish to blue-white. Some are more like balls of light while others have that......

...IS MONEY SPENT ON SPACE EXPLORATION A WASTE? Running head: IS MONEY SPENT ON SPACE EXPLORATION A WASTE? Is Money Spent on Space Exploration a Waste? Name Institution Human beings have always been fascinated with the idea of visiting space. Scientists all over the world have scrambled on the opportunity to go and explore space. Rockets that were made back in the 20th century have made it possible for people to tour the area. Following the First World War, the Soviet Union and the United States made their missile programs, all aimed at space exploration. Knowing that space exploration is one costly affair, there have been raging debates whether it is necessary to spend tons of money on it. This essay begs to answer the question, "Is money spent on space exploration a waste?" It is better for countries to spend money improving the financial status of their country and its people. Countries should not channel their funds on sponsoring scientists to go to space yet their people are suffering back at home (Kranz, 2011). The money otherwise spent on space exploration could be used to take care of the destitute children, improve health care and the education quality. Some countries do not have enough employment for their youths. It could be logical to create resources that generate jobs then visit space. Jerry asserts that the earth is not entirely explored meaning that there is no need to go...

...I. Introduction: The purpose of this paper is an overview about the current space tourism industry with advanced developments of space vehicles. Until now, seven tourists have ridden Soyuz spacecraft, a Russian spacecraft, to the International Space Station. Capturing the potential demand of space tourism, many private companies began to introduce their new and well-designed spacecraft promising to enable tourist to travel to space. From now to the next couple of years, we are expected to see many launches including testing and commercial flights into suborbital and low Earth orbit. There are also some private companies, who were awarded by NASA for their space programs to carry astronauts to the space station. II. Virgin Galactic – Scaled Composites (Suborbital): Virgin Galactic – Scaled Composites founded by Burt Rutan designed a unique type of spacecraft. Using a mothership aircraft, the space plane will be carried to midair and then be released to launch toward the edge of the atmosphere. Using carbon composite construction, the company has introduced two version of the space plane: SpaceShipOne and SpaceShipTwo along with two model of the mothership aircraft: WhiteKnightOne and WhiteKnightTwo. (Ref 1,3) A. Spaceship: a. SpaceshipOne – WhiteKnightOne: Scaled Composites first launched the SpaceShipOne to the suborbital in 2004 while the first of WhiteKnightOne was in 2002.

...advantageous alignment of a planet and its parent star in the system HD 189733, which is 63 light-years from Earth, enabled NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and the European Space Agency’s XMM Newton Observatory to observe a dip in X-ray intensity as the planet transited the star. "Thousands of planet candidates have been seen to transit in only optical light," said Katja Poppenhaeger of Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) in Cambridge, Mass., who led a new study to be published in the Aug. 10 edition of The Astrophysical Journal. "Finally being able to study one in X-rays is important because it reveals new information about the properties of an exoplanet." The team used Chandra to observe six transits and data from XMM Newton observations of one. The planet, known as HD 189733b, is a hot Jupiter, meaning it is similar in size to Jupiter in our solar system but in very close orbit around its star. HD 189733b is more than 30 times closer to its star than Earth is to the sun. It orbits the star once every 2.2 days. HD 189733b is the closest hot Jupiter to Earth, which makes it a prime target for astronomers who want to learn more about this type of exoplanet and the atmosphere around it. They have used NASA's Kepler space telescope to study it at optical wavelengths, and NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to confirm it is blue in color as a result of the preferential scattering of blue light by silicate particles in its atmosphere. The study with......

...it were, the real world is no episode of Star Trek or Doctor Who. The initial exploration of space was met with extreme enthusiasm, but since then, the positive look on space travel has become almost non-existent, and for good reasons. To be blunt, the costs are outweighing the benefits. We have hoped for discovering Earth-like planets and other inhabitants in our universe, but these hopes have been squashed considering how large the universe is, and how impossible the possibility of reaping the benefits from the large task is. Earth is our home now, and we must deal with its problems first before we deal with any other planets. Earth’s issues must be tackled first, for the sake of our planet and everyone, man or animal, on it. Money is always an issue, no matter what. When looking at the “Pennies of Each Federal Spending Dollar” chart, space travel is so low in the national budget that it is included in the “all others” section, which only makes up 6% of the budget. Even when we went to the moon, there was no monetary return, so space travel is a waste of resources. We need all the extra money it can gather to protect our planet. Russell Roberts, a space enthusiast from the National Public Radio, said to “Leave the money here on Earth.” Like many others, he sees no point in using taxpayer dollars for useless, hopeless expeditions. Even though the freedom of traveling through space is promising, “we would do well to remember that we do not have a very good track record in......
