Science is a systematic process used to study the natural world and develop testable laws and theories about the universe. Science is performed through observation of natural phenomena and experimentation which attempts to replicate natural processes under controlled conditions.
Creationists, differentiate between operational science and origins science. Operational science is defined as science which deals with observable, repeatable, and testable phenomenon such as the laws of gravity, the structure of the cell, or chemical reactions. Origins science, on the other hand, deals with questions of an unobservable nature: hypotheses about events which only occurred once by their very nature, and which therefore cannot be repeated, tested, or observed.
Atoms (Greek άτομον) are the basic units that make up all matter. They are sub-microscopic structures and the smallest part of a substance that can take part in chemical reactions. Atoms exist in more than 110 different sizes that we call elements. These elements are arranged into groups in the Periodic Table of Elements based on properties they have in common.
Each atom is made up of a nucleus and a number of orbiting electrons. The nucleus is found at the center of an atom. It is composed of particles called protons, which are positively charged, and neutrons, which have no charge. Therefore the nucleus always has a positive charge. A neutron and a proton are jointly called a nucleon.
The electrons that orbit the nucleus have a negative charge. When atoms have the same number of electrons and protons, they have a neutral charge. When atoms have more protons than electron they have a positive charge. By contrast, if there are more electrons than protons, the atom is negatively charged. Charged atoms are called ions.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration began on October 1, 19581 October 1958 17 Tishrei 5719 H 17 Eitanim 5962 AM, by an act of the United States Congress to establish an American presence in outer space. Today it is the foremost among government agencies that manage space programs, and is credited with some of the most exciting and surprising astronomical discoveries ever made.
"An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that, in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle." - Francis Crick (Nobel Prize Laureate in Physiology and Medicine), Life Itself, Its Origin and Nature (1981), p. 88.
