This seems like a good way to explain quasars in a general point of view, for beginners. :) Wiki is good for general info, but if you want more in depth and complex things on quasars, then search your library or the Internet.
I've been thinking about it and will probably be doing discoveries by Edwin Hubble during the 1920s. Our professor always does a thesis check before the paper is due, so we can discuss it. I don't have a firm thesis yet, but I will have a talk with my professor about it tomorrow.
Thanks, forgot about that one.
Sorry if my first post was a little unclear. In our assignment, we can also have secondary sources, not just primary. I was looking through New York Times historical index and I typed in "Astronomy in the 1920s", and it popped up. I'll probably just scratch it...
I thought about doing that, and I probably will.
As for the other responses, thanks. I'll gladly look into it. I've been getting some research done and probably will just mainly focus on the people in Astronomy, what their discoveries were, etc.
First off, I'm not sure where to post this topic. I was thinking either the homework section, or General Astronomy, but I chose to put it here because my question relates to a research paper in Astronomy.
Let me discuss the basics of the paper. We have to pick a topic in the 1920s that...
