post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need some of TCS great help/vibes . As you know my partner & I design/write web pages and I'm stuck thinking of a topic or more importantly narrowing it down. The topic is astronomy.

What would you write about or like to know about astronomy? Our client gives us free rein/control on the design and topics, we just need to link it back to her.

I need help with my writer's block. I'll give a gift/points for the idea I use .

What about the topic of UFO's?

Here is a thread that was posted here not that long ago.


Nasa has reported recently the finding of some new stars forming, and new galaxies. You might want to talk about those.

What about comets? How they are discovered? Some of the more famous ones.

Maybe talk about Jupiter and the astroid that hit it.

How about the space station?

What about any contingencies in place if there is every a threat of an astroid about to hit us. Does the governments have anything in place to prevent that from happening IE: missel or other plan to destroy or deflect it?

You might also talk about how the stars we see in the sky are actually thousands of years old and may not even be there right now because of the length of time it takes light to travel.

What about the phenomena of solar flares?


The effect the full moon has on the tides and on people's moods.\\

The importance of astrology to the ancient Egyptians, and how certain constalations were taken into account when building the pyramids.

I could go on

Stars formation would be a great topic. You could add wonderful pictures of nebulae! My favorites are Carina (for some reason I have a 501mb image file of this that I don't remember downloading ) and Eagle Nebula's Pillars of Creation and Stellar Spire.

Pillars of Creation - one of the most well known photos Hubble has taken.

Stellar Spire

Carina - warning, it's huge http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/image/0704/carina_hst_big.jpg

If colorful photos don't get people's attention, I don't know what will.

More photos http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html
Just be a bit careful on some photos you use. Not all are taken by the various space programs or university related, some are done by private photographers.

Solar Tides? Since everyone knows about the Lunar Tides... maybe the opposite end?

Or the awesome weather 'phenomena?' Like color flashes on the moon or sun when it's setting, sun dogs, flashes, etc?

Black Holes?

Quasars and Pulsars?

The gas giants.
