The Magnetosphere - Earth Raises its Shields
A view of a computer-generated model of the Earth's magnetosphere. Semi-transparent surfaces represent particle density (red is high, blue is low) and silvery tubes represent the magnetic field lines. In this particular model, the solar wind has an ambient density of 8.35 particles-cm^3. The isosurfaces are then red (>17 particles-cm^3), yellow (>12 particles-cm^3), green (>8.6 particles-cm^3) and blue (<1.0 particle-cm^3).

"Bioethics, Spring 2009"
" This course does not seek to provide answers to ethical questions. Instead, the course hopes to teach students two things. First, how do you recognize ethical or moral problems in science and medicine? When something does not feel right (whether cloning, or failing to clone) — what exactly is the nature of the discomfort? What kind of tensions and conflicts exist within biomedicine? Second, how can you think productively about ethical and moral problems? What processes create them? Why do pe

3 DNA: Spot the difference

Here we look at DNA, the molecule which contains the instructions for making each living creature. It is contained within the genes of every individual living thing on Earth. Closely related creatures have DNA that is very similar, and distantly related creatures have DNA that is very different. By looking at how similar or different their DNA molecules are, we can see how closely related two species are.

Introducción a la Economía de la Empresa (2011)
Esta asignatura constituye la primera toma de contacto del alumno con el mundo de la empresa, lo que condiciona los objetivos didácticos de la misma. Ello requiere integrar en un mismo curso materiales pedagógicos descriptivos y analíticos, procurando no caer en un exceso de abstracción y formalismo que distancie al alumno de la realidad, o por el contrario, en un exceso de descripción que carezca de capacidad interpretativa. En definitiva, se plantea la necesidad de facilitar la descripci
