How can I calculate the luminosity of the wolf-rayet star Regor (Gama velorum) if i'm using the inverse square law but need the luminosity of this star in watts. How can I convert this value of its luminosity, (170,000 L☉) to watts I've been trying to figure out how to calculate this in order to convert it into my equation of b= L / (4pi d^2) if b= apparent brightness L= luminosity of star (in watts) d= distance to the star (in meters) Please let me know, thank you!?

Please guide me of how to convert this correctly and properly address the answer and how to get it.

How will I know that I’m enough to work along side professionals in the industry.

I’ve always feared that I will not have the knowledge or the innovation that others do which allow them to be such good workers at a company like NASA. Although it is wrong to be driven by such goals it has always pushed me to be my greatest self. My tenacity and grit has allowed me to keep up with the top of my class and I feel I’ll be able to continue until I reach my goals.

What does it take to become a NASA research scientist?

#research #science #NASA I like to learn new things every day to keep me engaged and save me from boredom. I love the type of work NASA is doing and am interested in researching because I have a perception of getting the opportunity to learn something new often. I also enjoy presenting/writing and I think that would also be part of a researcher's job. Is that true or are my presumptions incorrect. What qualities must a research scientist have and what education must such a person complete?

I have an offer that expires before I get a final decision from other summer programs. What are my options and what should I do?

Good news: I've received an offer for a physics REU at the University of Arkansas! Bad news: I need to respond by Feb 26th, even though final decisions from other REUs, national labs, and NASA come in early March. What are my options? I've already asked if my application review could be expedited, and most programs told me it wasn't possible. I wish these deadlines were more coordinated! #internships #applications #decisions #physics #national-labs #engineering #optics #laser-physics #nasa #REU #research

What are the challenges I may face pursuing a career in science, and how can I stand out among the rest?

For my first two years in high school I have been studying biotechnology and I have been working diligently in preparing myself for college and the workforce. Though I have not decided on an exact career, I am deeply considering one within forensics, pharmaceuticals, or in the space exploration fields. What are some of the challenges students may face when applying for college, throughout college, and in the workforce?
