Building Bridges, Dams, Power Plants
The large development projects of the 1930s, designed to serve a growing population, helped shape California in many ways. Most are still integral today. Photographs show the progress of two massive Northern California projects: the Golden Gate Bridge, which links San Francisco and Marin County, and the Bay Bridge, which connects San Francisco with Oakland and the East Bay. The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognized bridges in the world. It is unique not only because of its vermilion o

NASA KSNN What do plants need to grow?
By definition, a plant is a living thing that produces its own food through photosynthesis. This process uses carbon dioxide and water. Trapping light from the Sun, plants are able to change sunlight's energy into useable chemical energy. Not only is chemical energy produced, but oxygen is a by-product of photosynthesis. Plants are essential to the balance of life on Earth - and to life, as we know it, on other planets.
