Geology-108 Lecture 1 LECTURE 1 •the earth how an active planet affects us: earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, floods how we affect the planet: Global warming, acrid rain, ozone hole, groundwater pollution/depletion, depletion of mineral and energy resources and soils an evolving planet- has always been undergoing change. 2 mil years ago it entered an ice age, now warming for 10,000 years but greatly accelerated in the last century live circling a young star, our solar system, part of a galaxy , part of a universe of which the # of galaxies number in the billions .04% of earths time is when we have been here ice age origin of the universe, the earth and life (andromeda Galaxy [closest galaxy] 2.5 million light years away) Melvin Slipher, 1913 discovered 12 galaxies beyond the Milkey Way all showed the “red shift”, a doppler effect indicating all were speeding away Einstein vs. de Sitter Einstein- 1917, theory of Relativity, an equation with a beginning? problem section omitted William de Sitter- 1917, Corrects Einstein’s model, a beginning of time? Mt. Wilson Obseravtory Edwin Hubble, 1927, above Pasadena at Mr. Wilson, used telescope to confirm Slipher’s observation to include 39 galaxies, all moving away from each other and with the most distant at the greatest velocity. The Big Bang Theory! the galaxies that were the furthest away, moving fastest trajectories closing in on each other, take them back to their point of origin, come back to the same place and same time.

Hubble Telescope Today- found billions of galaxies. Telescope 14 billion light years away. The Big Bang Theory- (blackboard for slide) Distribution of Matter in the Universe Uneven... al matter on edges of curved surfaces (bubbles?) w/ great voids between- all expanding.. all very uneven mass (see blackboard) Gas Cloud, a future star (Nebula) some day will come together, become a star Our Galaxy- the Milky Way (hundred bil stars) we are 30,000 light years from the center, a dark hole Birth of a star (hydrogen and helium fuse.. 2 hydrogens (fusion) to make helium.. and another hydrogen to make lithium) releases tremendous amounts of energy, to make hydrogen bomb- star Storms of the Sun (fueled by hydrogen) origin of a solar system- nebular model Nebular cloud Gravitational attraction star formation (99.9% of mass collapsed to form sun *see BLACKBOARD) planetary formation The solar system BLACKBOARD -Current planetary configuration- chemistry of planets related to distance from sun The Outer Planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, are called gas giants. they are large worlds, much less dense than the inner planets, and they are composed mostly of gas and ices BB The outer planets- all low density, mostly non-metal BB Jupiter’s Io (has a volcano) physically alive Jupiter’s moon Ganymede (could have life)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
