Re: Ways in which the Ozone layer protects the Earth from Direct Radiation.

Hi Dorcas! This is a cool topic! In terms of continuing on, it would be useful to consider; 1) What biomes and parts of the world are impacted on a greater scale by holes in the ozone layer? Are there specific habitats or places where living things are more vulnerable to these conditions? 2) How do living things adaptations help them? What kinds of living things are in danger due to the ozone problems and what could be some solutions? Here is a link you may enjoy:...

Beneficial and hazardous effects of solar radiation

Hello everyone today I will be researching on the beneficial and hazardous effects of solar radiation. HEALTH BENEFITS Humans require between 1,000 and 2,000 international units of vitamin D every day for good health health. Your skin brings vitamin D naturally when exposed to solar radiation, and spending 10 or 15 minutes a day outside may give you all your body requires to be healthy. If you cannot spend time outside, or if you live far away from the equator where sunlight is more diffuse,...

Ways in which the Ozone layer protects the Earth from Direct Radiation.

Hello guys I will be looking at the ways in which the ozone layer acts as a covering or a shield to protect the earth from the direct and dangerous rays of the sun. The ozone layer or ozone covering is a region of Earth 's stratosphere that absorbs most of the Sun 's ultraviolet (UV) radiation.(1) The ozone layer acts as a filter for short wavelength and very dangerous rays from the sun, saving life on Earth from its very harmful(2) The ozone layer protects prevents us from the direct sun 's...

Hi Dorcas! Wow, neat topic! I was really intrigued by what you said about the sun improving our moods through sunlight releasing brain chemicals. I always associated the sun with feeling good and now I think I know why. As for the negative effects of UV rays, it could be interesting to explore different UV sensitivities or related conditions people have, and the negative effects the sun has for them. Good luck!

Hey Dorcas, Another fantastic round of research! I find it amazing that this ozone layer can protect everyone from harmful rays, but when it disappears will the human eye be able to notice? Isn't it concerning that this layer may not exist one day and we may not know we are exposed to the rays. Perhaps you could look into all the different harmful rays that can effect earth and humans? Here are some links on harmful rays that effect the earth. https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/UVB/...

Hi Dorcas, I really enjoyed reading your research this round. I especially love how relevant and important this topic is to us, with global warming being a prominent factor in today's world. I think it would be cool if you compared how Earth is habitable due to its ozone layer with how other planets are inhabitable due to their lack of an ozone layer. You could also look into how UV rays still affect humans on a daily basis--for example, sun burns. Here are some links that may help:...

Re: The Galaxy

I love this topic! Space and universe is such an interesting place! Just in talking about the shear size of the universe it can be concluded that somewhere out there, even if it 2 million light years away, there has to be life. Something that might be worth looking into is what does a planet require to support the most basic forms of life? Then from there you can build and expand on that to more complex life forms. http://learn.genetics.utah.edu...obiology/conditions/...

Re: The Galaxy

Hey Jordan, It's really cool how you're looking at it from a very technical level, though maybe you could approach it using philosophy or logical reasoning? A great example of this is the Fermi Paradox. It's a very interesting concept that toys around with the idea of probability and the logic of extraterrestrial life. http://waitbutwhy.com/2014/05/fermi-paradox.html

Hey Jordan, Congratulations on another excellent post! It's wonderful to imagine the possibility of life outside of Earth. Earth is one of the few lucky planets with hospitable environments. If life were to exist outside of our planet, it would most likely be one that can survive in extreme conditions. We have organism like these on Earth, called "extremophiles".
