( What is Big History )
BY: Lamia LawrenceCrossroads@Meade Computer Science Class29 April 2015
I have to find out what Big History is, And write a paragraph about what it is and how people interact about it.
I learned that Big History is an emerging academic discipline which examines history and from Big Bang to the present. People look at big history as teh most important thing in history. Sometimes big history depends on the past. Like history it means the study of past events, particularly in human affairs, or the whole series of past events connected with someone or something.

The Big Bang
In this lesson I have to find out, how views of the Universe have changed over time and I have to explain my answer. Views of the Universe changes over time. The earth was thought to be a circle rather than an oval.
Past days were full of superstitions and everything was thought like that. Science has changed everything. A long time ago , earth was thought to be flat but it's round. Earth was thought to be the center of the Universe when it's not.

The Stars Light Up
In this lesson I have find out How do stars form. Star form by relatively dense concentrations of interstellar gas and dust known as molecular clouds. I also have to find what happens in the life of a star and explain what happens when a star dies. The thing that happen in the life of a star is most stars on the Main Sequence will create their energy by the process of hydrogen fusion. And what happen when a star is The core finally cools into a white dwarf, then a black dwarf. This is what happens when a normal-sized star dies. If a really huge star dies, it has so much mass that after the helium is used up, it still has enough carbon to fuse it into heavy elements like iron.

Earth & the Solar System
In this lesson I have to find why planets are more complex than stars. Planets are more complex than stars because the planets are more known then the stars. It's more to learn about for planets than it is for the stars. Like it's more history for planets. For the star you can only know how they are formed and basically how may stars there are. I also have to find out how the Earth and its atmosphere developed and changed over time. The earth and it's atmosphere developed and changed over time loss of the hydrogen, helium and other hydrogen-containing gases from early Earth due to the Sun's radiation, primitive Earth was devoid of an atmosphere. The first atmosphere was formed by out-gassing of gases trapped in the interior of the early Earth, which still goes on today in volcanoes.
