When it comes to the universe and our galaxy, there is so much more going on than what we usually are capable of perceiving. Just take a look at the Moon from any point on the surface of the Earth and one shall be pardoned for imagining that it is an entity that does not really move, the only unchanging bit of the sky.
THE PHASES OF THE MOON
From where we stand on the Earth, the surface of the Moon appears to be a bit dark as the illuminated side of it is facing away from us. And as the Moon resumes its orbit counterclockwise around the Earth (as seen from above the north pole), more and more of the part of the Moon that is illuminated ends up becoming visible to those on the surface of the Earth, until it reaches the stage we all refer to as the “full Moon” stage. A Full Moon occurs when the Moon has moved in its orbit so that Earth is considered to be “between” the Moon and the Sun. In a way, it can be said that after a seemingly endless amount of time, the similar complex patches of lighter and darker hues of the moon are anything but difficult to see.
THE MOON AS A CLOCKWORK UNIVERSE
When the matter at hand is how human beings perceive the moon, it can be said that we think of the moon as a piece of a clockwork universe. Obviously, most of us even realize that this is just a fantasy. As each year passes, the gravitational tides between the Earth and Moon disseminate somewhat more of the vitality that is repressed in our combined framework, and the Moon ends up sliding about 3.8 centimeters further from us. In addition to this, humans realize that the Moon encounters normal shooting star effects, and experiences its own particular, and shifting, collaboration with the solar wind because of limited, powerless magnetic fields at its surface.
Additionally, the Moon is a gigantic sponge for cosmic beams and rays – nuclear or subatomic particles of high vitality flying into the Milky Way at a speed that is quite similar to that we know as light-speed, driven by phenomenally energetic forms somewhere else known to man. At the point when these molecules crash into the surface of the moon, a portion of their vitality is changed over to photons, at extremely high energies. Then, a portion of those photons, in the gamma-beam part of the electromagnetic range, break to stream back out into the universe.
Thanks to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or what we commonly know as NASA, and their Fermi Gamma-beam Space Telescope, which is an orbital high-vitality galactic observatory, working since 2008, and has been relentlessly gathering information on that discharge of lunar gamma-beams.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE GAMMA RAYS?
