R 2/1/18 Today we will try to log into Miraheze
T 2/6/18 Chapter 9 Cratered worlds
W 2/7/18 Mercury
Finish Ch9 with Mercury. A volatile subsance melts or evaporates at low temperature. Hydrogen and helium are most volitile, followed by water, followed by silicates (sand/glass), followed by the metals as the least volatile. Since it is so close to the sun, Mercury has has few volatile substances. Start
R 2/8/18 Venus
Attempt to log into Miraheze. Also, poll students on whether they have WMF (Wikipedia/Wikiversity) accounts.
F 2/9/18 Venus and Mars
M 2/12/18 Venus
Chapter 10 Venus and Mars Chapter Venus (Chapter 10)
T 2/13/18 Radioactive Dating
Counting Crater's Lab.
We will begin a series of lab/projects on stars:
M 2/19/18 Gas planets
T 2/20/18 The failure of the shephards
[https://highered.mheducation.com/olcweb/cgi/pluginpop.cgi?it=swf::800::600::/sites/dl/free/0072482621/78780/Solar_Nav.swf::Solar%20System%20Builder We were unable to get this simulation to exhibit sheparding. Instead two Hot Jupiters bookending 8-12 "plutos" eventually ate all of them. This shows the giant planet "cleaning" out it's region, but not the "pushing" of satellites away from the planet's orbit.
W 2/21/18 Pluto and Charon
OpenStax sections on Comets, Kuiper's belt and Oort's cloud.

W 3/14/18 Bell's theorem card game
- Cornell solid-state physicist David Mermin has described the appraisals of the importance of Bell's theorem in the physics community as ranging from "indifference" to "wild extravagance".
- Lawrence Berkeley particle physicist Henry Stapp declared: "Bell's theorem is the most profound discovery of science."
- I couldn't sleep for 3 days when I realized what was going on back in the 1990s
- Any interest in understanding Einstein's special theory of relativity and how we know information cannot travel faster than the speed of light?
Conclusion: Today we reviewed relative velocity using the "man-on-train" at Wikipedia:Relative velocity. Then we did the clock argument at wikipedia:special:permalink/829634204#Simple_inference_of_velocity_time_dilation. We reviewed the card game and a solid majority voted to play the couple's game at least once.
Next time, lets look at this:
