    Posted by Christine Garand Scherer on 3/27/2020

    To dig deeper into a text and glean more meaningful information from it, you must actively engage! You may be familiar with the who, what, where, when, why, and how questions. However, expand those to dig deeper!

    Questions to keep in mind as you read:

    Who- Who wrote it? Who is the intended audience? Who does it impact? Who is it about?

    What- What happened? What's the big deal? What changes as a result? What will come of it?

    Where- Where did it happen? Where is it going? Where will it end? Where did it begin? 

    When- When did it happen? When was it discovered? When did it begin? When will things change as a result?

    Why- Why did it happen? Why is it important? Why do you care? Why aren't more people doing it?

    How- How did it happen? How did people find out about it? How will the world change as a result? How will people be affected by it?

    First ever photo of a solar system like ours!

    Scientists have captured the first direct image of a solar system that closely resembles our own. The new image is a family portrait of sorts, showing two giant exoplanets orbiting a young, sun-like star, roughly 300 light years away.

    The picture was taken using the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope, located in Chile's Atacama Desert. According to a new study in the Astrophysical Journal Letters, the system will help astronomers better understand how our solar system formed and evolved.
