Quotes

...transferred to an object," said Jason Davis, a spokesman for the Planetary Society, a nonprofit group that supports space exploration initiatives. "The benefit of the solar sail is you have unlimited energy from the sun to push it around."
(NBC News) - "Tis the season once again, when rogue full moons nearing perigee seem to roam the summer skies at will, to the breathless exhortations of many an astronomical neophyte. We know … by now, you'd think that there'd be nothing new under the sun when it comes to the closest full moons of the year."
Additional note: If you want to know the distance between two stars, Wolfram Alpha is an easy-to-use tool: just plug in "distance between [first star name] (star) and [second star name] (star) and you're good to go!"
"This is the time when the Sun attains its greatest declination of +23.5 degrees and passes directly overhead at noon for all observers at latitude 23.5 degrees North, which is known as the Tropic of Cancer. This event marks the start of the apparent southward movement of the Sun in the ecliptic" PAGASA said
