Prentice Hall Science Explorer Astronomy

by Michael J. Padilla Ioannis Miaoulis Martha Cyr

The ancient Egyptians were among the first people to study the stars. The study of the moon, stars and other objects in space is called astronomy. Ancient astronomers also studied the movements of the sun and the moon as they appeared to travel across the sky. It seemed to them as though Earth were standing still and the sun and moon were moving. Actually, the sun and moon seem to move across the sky each day mainly because Earth is rotating on its axis.

Prentice Hall Science Explorer: Environmental Science

by Michael J. Padilla Ioannis Miaoulis Martha Cyr

The first step in making environmental decisions is to understand how humans interact with the environment. Environmental science is the study of the natural processes that occur in the environment and how humans can affect them. When people make decisions about environmental issues, the information provided by environmental scientists is a starting point. The next step is to decide what to do with the information. But environmental decisions also involve discussions of values, not just facts and figures. Environmental decisions usually require considering many different points of view. Most of these viewpoints fall into one of these three categories: development, preservation, or conservation.
