BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Interstellar travel project and Yuri Gagarin's anniversary as the world's first spaceman


Read some articles about the issue and watch some news:

However, if we ever take this decision to send a spaceship into space, scientists will have to bear this in mind:

So we will have to start 'cleaning up the space' (listening exercise, 6 Minute English, BBC)

  1. First, I'm going to talk about Stephen Hawking. Hawking is an English theoretical physicist cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theorethical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge. He has a rare early-onset, slow-progressing form of amytrophic lateral sclerosis. Actaylly, he can only move his eyes and he talks through a computer.

    Stephen Hawking is backing a project by Yuri Milner, who is a billonaire, supported by Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg. The project is to send tiny spacecraft to another star system within a generation.

    But why do they want to do this?
    Astronmers believe that there is a reasonable chance of a planet like the Earth orbiting one of the stars in the Alpha Centauri System.

    The organisation 'Mr Milner's Break through Foundation' has brouht together a group of scientists to ask them if it might be possible to develop spaceships capable of travellibg to another star. They say that the nearest star system is 40 trillion km far away, so using current technology it would take about 30,000 years to get there, but they also say that with a little more research and development it might be possible to get there in only 30 years.

  3. Stephen Hawking is a British theoretical physicist who was born in Oxford in 1942. He suffers a degenerative disease that imposes physical disabilities and progressive limitations, however, he is one of the most famous physicist in the world.

    Stephen Hawking wants to support a project which consist to send small spaceships to other solar systems and to realize interstellar trips, to make it possible, it is necessary to build spaceships that will travel trillions of kilometres.

    This project was launched by Yuri Milner, because scientists say that it might be another planet very similar to the Earth near one star of the Alpha Centaury system.

    Who is Yuri Gagarin? Yuri Gagarin is a Soviet cosmonaut who was the first person in the world that reached the outer space, it happened the 14th, April, 1961. This day, he was thrown on board of the spaceship Vostok I, which took him to distances between the 180 and 327 km from the terrestrial surface.
