6 1. Astronomic Scales in Space and Time

7 Earth Sun Jupiter.


9 Galaxy M31, known as the Andromeda nebula

10 Collection of galaxies. The three fuzzy galaxies left merging, The crisp galaxy in the center is on the background

11 Large-scale map of the observable universe showing the the largest structures visible in the universe. Each point in this diagram represents one single galaxy

12 The Universe at the young age of 300,000 years. The colors represent temperature fluctuations in the Cosmic Background Radiation Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe

13 Subtle variations in the CBR.

14 The Giant Impact Theory suggests that a Mars-sized object crashed into the early Earth. Most of the debris thrown into space fell back on Earth, but a fraction aggregated into the Moon. This theory is supported by the similar composition of rocks on the Earth and Moon.

15 Geschiedenis van de astronomie

16 History of astronomy Ancient history Hindu Astronomy Mesopotamia / Sumer / Chaldea, Babylonia Mesoamerica China Ancient Greece Middle Ages

17 Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543) The Copernican heliocentric system

18 The Ptolomaic heliocentric system

19 The Ptolomaic heliocentric system

20 Nicolaus Copernicus De revolutionibus orbium coelestium

21 Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543)

22 Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)

23 Johannes Kepler (1571-1630)

24 Tyho Brahe (1546-1601)

25 Johannes Kepler


27 1.Kepler's elliptical orbit law: The planets orbit the sun in elliptical orbits with the sun at one focus. 2. Kepler's equal-area law: The line connecting a planet to the sun sweeps out equal areas in equal amounts of time. 3. Kepler's law of periods: The time required for a planet to orbit the sun, called its period, is proportional to the long axis of the ellipse raised to the 3/2 power. The constant of proportionality is the same for all the planets.

28 Isaac Newton (1642-1727)

29 Voorbeeld: zwaartekracht Observaties aan bv planeetbanen (Mathematische) Theorie Experimenten met bv valbewegingen en slingers

30 Newton zet de standaard T* Absolute ruimte en tijd * afgeleide grootheden: snelheid, versnelling, impuls · * abstractie van een puntmassa * abstracte grootheden: kracht, energie  * abstracte grootheden: kracht hangt van positie af *

31 Newton zet de standaard T* De natuurwet als principe: [1] de ratio van de verandering van de impuls van een puntmassa is gelijk aan de resulterende kracht die op de puntmassa werkt

32 Newton zet de standaard T* De natuurwet als principe: [2] de zwaartekracht op een bepaalde plek h de ratio van de verandering van de impuls is gelijk aan de kracht van een massa van M kilo op eenpuntmassa op is omgekeerd evenredig met het kwadraat van de afstand r van zijn centrum

65 Abundances of chemical elements in the neighbourhood of our sun. The marks are from the intensities from spectral absorption lines in the sun’s atmosphere, the lines from meteorite and terrestrial data.

66 An example of an unstable – but not- periodic – star is this massive ‘Wolf- Rayet star’ NGC2359, that irregularly ejects large parts of its own outer envelope in gargantuan explosions. The star itself is in the central bubble, the clouds are remnants of previous ejections.
