Are there questions you think your visit might help to answer?

INSTRUCTIONS
• The student must follow the specific guidance of the prompt.
• The student’s response must be between 200 and 300 words in total length.
• The student must use proper grammar, spelling and syntax, but there is no specific “style” requirement (MLA, APA, etc.).
• The student is only allowed one attempt. Edit and proof-read work carefully prior to submission.
• The student must submit the short response as a Word document.
Response Prompt
For this short response, imagine that we can break some of the laws of physics or use some futuristic technologies. If you could visit any object in our solar system, what would it be and why? Your response should be 200-300 words in length.
• Clearly identify the specific object (planet, moon, asteroid, comet, etc.) by name and general location within the solar system.
• Discuss why you chose the object. For example–What makes this object interesting to you? What would you hope to see or do there? Are there questions you think your visit might help to answer? Include relevant details about the object from the course as part of that discussion. If you choose to include any additional details from outside the course, cite the source(s). Note: citations are not part of the word-count requirement!

How will it help you with navigating the night sky?

Instructions
• The student must follow the specific guidance of the prompt.
• The student’s response must be between 200 and 300 words in total length.
• The student must use proper grammar, spelling and syntax, but there is no specific “style” requirement (MLA, APA, etc.).
• The student is only allowed one attempt. Edit and proof-read work carefully prior to submission.
• The student must submit the short response as a Word document.
Response Prompt
In the Discussion: Naked Eye Observations you were instructed to go outside with naked-eye resources to help you become more familiar with the night sky. For this assignment, you will expand your options for making observations. Please discuss other resources, methods or organizations that are available to you that you might be able to put into use now or in the coming weeks.
Here are your options:
• A local observatory—for example, if you live in the Lynchburg area you could discuss the campus observatory at the equestrian center.
• A nearby planetarium—perhaps you live close to a university, museum, etc. that has a planetarium and runs programs for the public.
• A local astronomy club—your town or county may have an “astronomical society” that invites the public to get involved at “star parties” or similar events.
• A phone app—download an astronomy app. There are many to choose from, and some of them are free. Even those with a cost tend to be very inexpensive.
• A “new” online astronomy resource—discuss a good online resource that was not one of the resources or affiliated websites listed in the Discussion: Naked Eye Observations.
• A home telescope—if you own a telescope and you know how to use it, share your experiences.
Write your response as two paragraphs (200-300 words total).
In paragraph 1, discuss the new resource you have selected. For example–What is it? Where did you find it? How does it “work?” How will it help you with navigating the night sky?
In paragraph 2, discuss either (1) how you plan to make use of the new resource in the near future or (2) how you were actually able to use the new resource this week!

This is a multi part project.
I need you to write a research proposal. You will sign onto my account to see instructions more clearly.
here is instructions to explain it generally copy pasted but contact me to get more specifics on instructions. The research proposal is due November 1rst the rest of the project is due throughout the rest of this semester. The secondary parts of this project will require calculations done in previous assignments I have given on this website.
The Signature Project in this class is a scientific collaboration in which each student will INDIVIDUALLY study the viability of their own exoplanet to possibly support a human colony in the eventuality that the Earth becomes uninhabitable due to climate change. Hopefully at least one student’s planet will have the key properties to support human life!!
In Unit 2 we learned all about how we find exoplanets and how we measure their key properties such as mass, size, density, mean temperature and the natures of their host stars. In Homework #4 we wrote a preliminary abstract for our Signature Project. Since then we’ve learned all about the Radial Velocity and Transit methods, and what they can teach us about the properties of exoplanets. For this assignment we will write our Final Project Proposal to ask the National Science Foundation (NSF) for funds to conduct our research to find a habitable exoplanet.
Scenario:
You are proposing to analyze Radial Velocity Curves and Transit Light Profiles for an exoplanet from the NASA archive (your specific planet will be assigned to you for HW #8). Your goal is to measure the key exoplanet properties that will allow you to assess whether or not it is habitable. Your results will be useful for future exobiology searches or possibly even human colonization.
As a reminder, read all about Project Proposals in this document. Download document. Here are the components of your Final Proposal:
Rewrite your Abstract, incorporating your new, deeper understanding from Unit #2. As before, it should be between 200-400 words, and include all five basic Abstract sections described in the Project Proposal documentDownload Project Proposal document. [20 points]
Write the Science Justification. This should be between 400-800 words and present a balanced discussion of background information, the program’s goals, its significance to astronomy in general, and its importance for the specific sub-field of astronomy it addresses. [40 points]
Write the Technical Justification. This should be between 400-800 words and explain how the proposed measurements and/or calculations will achieve the stated scientific goals. [40 points]
You can type your proposal directly into Canvas or upload a single PDF file (preferred). Important Reminder: All submissions are automatically scanned by plagiarism software, so make sure your work is your own.
REMINDER: Carefully read the Rubric for HW#7, and reread the Rubric for HW#4 (for the abstract). Also, read the Project Proposal Document!

Eclss system that supports 5 astronauts in lunar orbit for a period of 6 months.

ECLSS system that supports 5 astronauts in Lunar orbit for a period of 6 months.
I just need:
1- introduction
2-Atmospheric Control Systems,
2.1- Oxygen Generating System (OGS),
2.2- Carbon Dioxide Removal System(CDRS),
2.3- Trace Contaminant Control System (TCCS),
2.4- Atmospheric Control System Results
3-Water in the lunar orbit
A detailed example is uploaded, but it was for a mars mission instead of a lunar mission. So follow similar path of this essay. Let me know if you have any concerns
