I finally finished my passion project. It took me quite a while, but it was a huge success. I learned a lot about the topic Exoplanets. Here is my amazing slideshow, Enjoy!:
Today I researched more on the Trappist 1 system and I found out there is 2,342 confirmed discovered exoplanets. I also went through my whole slideshow and made sure there were no spelling mistakes and incorrect grammar and put the images in better places.
Today I made the Slide Trappist 1 system. I included facts about the system such as, how some of the planets in the system are habitable, which constellation it’s in and why I think it’s a good choice. I also added a background picture showing facts about each individual planet in the system like its mass, diameter, compared to Earth.
Today I researched more on exoplanets and found the Trappist 1 system. It has 7 Earth-sized planets in it’s Solar System and 3 planets in it’s Goldilocks zone. I also made Slides on the Planets Kepler-186f, Gliese 667Cc, and Kepler-22b.
Today I researched more on why it’s important to discover exoplanets. I found out much more facts then I did yesterday by visiting one new site. I also made a slide called is it worthy to discover exoplanets? I put in all the information I researched today into that slide.
Today I continued to research on how to discover exoplanets. I found the method Transit Photometry. I had visited a couple different sites to figure out what it meant. I also researched on why exoplanets are important. In my slides, I also added some photos to let the reader understand better what I’m saying.
In school everyone had the choice of doing a passion project. This is like a mini capstone. At first I didn’t know what to do so I thought I wasn’t going to do the passion project but then I decided to do it on Exoplanets because I’m interested into space. Exoplanets are planets outside of our solar system that orbit a star. Today for my research I focused on how do you discover Exoplanets? I surfed the web until I found a reliable resource to use. I understood the concept of Radial velocity easily but what confused me was Micro lensing. It was confusing because the word ‘light’ appeared so many times and I couldn’t picture it in my head until I read it many times, then I finally understood how it worked.
