I was very impressed with the attendance at the SkyWatch Lecture "Curiosity on Mars: Roving the Red Planet". Seeing pictures taken only the day before was astonishing. The speaker, Laurie Leshin, did an outstanding job!

cosmetics disadvantages
Increasingly, people react to the pollution in their environment with skin diseases and allergies.

Over the years, numerous methods were developed that were aimed at making products more durable and less perishable. As part of this, countless synthetic
additives, which were then admixed to the care products to preserve these longer. Meanwhile, many of these substances are suspected trigger allergies or even cancer can.And for those who already have skin diseases and allergies to fight, involves the use of conventional creams, makeup and perfumes with an additional risk of aggravation. Given the fact that life is not easy with such restrictions, should the handle to cosmetics to be taken lightly.

I had a very positive experience working with Dudley’s archives. Arguably, Dudley is as much about history as it is astronomy. I realized its rich past upon probing various documents. For instance, director Curtis Hemenway proved a pioneer with his experiments in micrometeorites during the 1960s and 1970s. In addition, I received a glimpse into the inner workings of the board through minutes of meetings. Each board member possessed his/her ideas over the Observatory’s direction. On a final note, my time at Dudley allowed me to directly apply my studies in history and archives.

the digital collections. This will increase the visibility of Dudley’s collections for both researchers and educators.

My experience with the people here, while fairly limited, was extremely positive. all of them were always willing to help with any problem and very interested in trying to enrich the experience of volunteering; I got the feeling that they did a great deal more for me than I did for them. I never participated directly in any of their events, so I can't comment on that, but with that group of people I can't imagine it could be anything but spectacular.

The Dudley Observatory is an organization that works towards providing education about astronomy and the history of astronomy. Its focus is on astronomy that is accessible to all, which is why instead of a physical "observatory" with a turret, Dudley has started the Rising Star Internship Program. I personally became involved with the Dudley Observatory by participating in this program, in which 8-inch telescopes (which are big enough to make out Saturn's rings and Jupiter's moons) are given out to high school students and educators who are taught how to use them. These students and educators then use the telescopes (which are theres to keep) to attend public observing events and show celestial targets to the public. The telescopes are highly mobile and we have taken them everywhere from Saratoga State Park to SPAC to the streets of Schenectady to show off and teach about the heavens. Some other programs Dudley has been involved in are a variable star research project, an astrophotography program, lectures by astronomers and researchers in related fields, public observing events, and school presentations. Dudley's mission is get people excited about astronomy, about its history, and about science in general. It has had an amazing impact on everyone who has ever volunteered for it, attended one of its programs, or even just taken their first look at Saturn'

While working at public observing events and free lectures, I have seen that Dudley Observatory has the potential both to inspire and to educate "students" of any age. Through Dudley's efforts, for example, kids actually become excited about science.

The best way to change this organization would be to give it more money so that it could continue running current programs and add new ones.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Dudley Observatory is a stellar organization which runs programs to appeal to justs about anyone. No matter what your previous experience with astronomy, programs with the Dudley Observatory will fill you with wonder and curiousity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff and volunteers are always looking to improve their programs, to reach with an ever broader population base, and to interact with the public. Their greatest strengths are their ability is there flexibility, charisma, and knowledge.

If it had 10 million bucks, Dudley Observatory would be able to target a wider geographical base and build it's own observatory. In addition, it could expand its library of rare books and historical artifacts!

Ways to make it better...

I have had no complaints about Dudley Observatory whatsoever! The biggest hassle has been the weather.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

While it is able to reach a wider audience of people, light pollution is one of the largest problems with urban observing. This is one reason that, despite the advantages of mobile telescopes, Dudley could make good use of an observatory.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Dudley Observatory has changed my life for the better over the two years I have been involved with them. If you live in the area or ever visit (Schenectady, NY), definitely look them up and take advantage of all they have to offer.

It is an honor to speak to the many activities that the Dudley Observatory offers to people of all ages. I am so very impressed with the dedication (matched by no other) of the staff and volunteers to develop programs and bring the wonders of the universe to all of us. There are outstanding educational programs and a superb lecture series that allows us to see these wonderful scientists in action. The Rising Star Program actually gives a telescope to those accepted and allows the recipients ( both teachers and students alike) to augment their knowledge base and then pass that knowledge to others. Just check it out, go to the Dudley Observatory website and you will be very impressed!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own classroom!It is vital to our core curriculum(across academics)to foster the desire in our students to seek out new knowledge,to observe the wonders that are above us in order to understand processes that helped to develop our Earth!

Dudley Observatory has tought me values about lfe and what I want to do with my future. Some nights we were in SPAC showing the public practically anything they wanted see through our telescopes and some nights we were setting up tables at various locations with packets of information about getting started with astronomy. I have had people go up to me while I volunteered with Dudley and told me how much my telescope has changed their life. If I didn't live almost 2 hours away, Id be volunteering with Dudley as much as possible.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the field of education and science. Many people have never given thought as to what Saturn really looks like through a telescope, and we the volunteers (I was a Rising Star Intern) initiate sparks in people's minds to go out and see the wonders of space.

There is honestly nothing that I can think about changing. My volunteering with Dudley has been one of the best things that ever happened to me and I hope to always be affiliated with them.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how much this organization helped me to mature, and I enjoyed seeing people's faces light up after them seeing their first celestial object for the first time.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very friendly, patient, smart and reliable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really help the science community even more. We try to make discoveries within the science cimmunity, but it would be unrivaled if Dudley had 10 million bucks!

Ways to make it better...

I lived closer.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Dudley is a trusted organization, striving for many many years and no matter how much money they have to use, they will always be trying to better the community.
