I’m trying to learn for my Science class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
The observatories paper must be about a method of observing the night sky and examples of the most recent discoveries. For example, you could write about Radio Astronomy as it is done by the Greenbank Observatory in West Virginia and the Very Large Array in New Mexico. Or you could write about Observatories that explore the night sky in the visible such as Keck Observatory in Hawaii, there is also the European Southern Observatory in South America, etc. You can also write about space bound observatories such as the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), the CHANDRA project which is an X-ray satellite, etc. or even projects that are currently under development and what they seek to accomplish.
You can use any magazines, journals, and web sites that are accepted by the scientific community (e.g.: Nature, Scientific American, Sky and Telescope, Astronomy, Popular Mechanics, or web sites published by well known research universities and scientific institutions like NASA, Hubble Space Telescope Institute, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, MIT, Cal-Tech, Princeton University, Harvard, etc.)
