When you attend weekend star watches as some of us do, the Saturday morning swap meet is always a highlight.

I would also like to hold some meteorite hunts around the area. I think many of us would love to find some "space junk" around the Berks County area, and by doing it as a club, we can learn from each other what to look for and where. Finally, more "club members only" star watches will follow in the coming months. As you can see, just the beginning of a new direction. Antennas, Designed by Darwin by Patrick L.
LAHS's Pegasus Parking Lot Swap Meet Saturday
Barry Who in their right mind would design this bizarre- looking antenna? Taking a cue from nature, NASA engineers used a kind of "artificial evolution" to find this design. The result may look odd, but it works very well. The improvement comes from Darwin's idea of natural selection: Over many generations, traits that hinder survival are weeded out, while beneficial traits become more common.
It's particularly useful for tackling problems that are difficult to solve by hand--like the design of new antennas. ST-5 will explore how TV-sized "nano-satellites" can perform the tasks of much larger, conventional satellites at a cheaper cost. Antennas on these satellites must be smaller than usual, yet capable of doing everything that a bigger antenna can do.
The evolution of this bizarre-looking antenna happened inside a computer. Many random designs were tested in a computer simulation.
In that regard Robert Graves has proposed the only Greek derivation available. According to Carl Darling Buck Comparative Grammar of Greek and Latinthe —eus suffix is typically used to form an agent noun, in this case from the aorist stem, pers. Pers-eus therefore is a sacker of cities; that is, a soldier by occupation, a fitting name for the first Mycenaean warrior.
The origin of perth- is more obscure.
Graves carries the meaning still further, to the perse- in Persephonegoddess of death. The native name, however, has always had an -a- in Persian. Herodotus  recounts this story, devising a foreign son, Persesfrom whom the Persians took the name.
Apparently the Persians  knew the story as Xerxes tried to use it to bribe the Argives during his invasion of Greece, but ultimately failed to do so. Disappointed by his lack of luck in having a son, Acrisius consulted the oracle at Delphiwho warned him that he would one day be killed by his daughter's son. Zeus came to her in the form of a shower of gold, and impregnated her.
Fearful for his future, but unwilling to provoke the wrath of the gods by killing the offspring of Zeus and his daughter, Acrisius cast the two into the sea in a wooden chest. Mother and child washed ashore on the island of Serifoswhere they were taken in by the fisherman Dictys "fishing net"who raised the boy to manhood.
Perseus believed Polydectes was less than honourable, and protected his mother from him; then Polydectes plotted to send Perseus away in disgrace.

He held a large banquet where each guest was expected to bring a gift. Perseus had no horse to give, so he asked Polydectes to name the gift; he would not refuse it.
Polydectes held Perseus to his rash promise and demanded the head of the only mortal Gorgon Medusawhose gaze turned people to stone.
Ovid 's account of Medusa's mortality tells that she had once been a woman, vain of her beautiful hair, who was raped by Poseidon in the Temple of Athena. Following Athena's guidance,  Perseus sought the Graeaesisters of the Gorgonsto demand the whereabouts of the Hesperidesthe nymphs tending Hera's orchard.
The Graeae were three perpetually old women, who had to share a single eye. As the women passed the eye from one to another, Perseus snatched it from them, holding it for ransom in return for the location of the nymphs. From the Hesperides he received a knapsack kibisis to safely contain Medusa's head.
Zeus gave him an adamantine sword a Harpe and Hades' helm of darkness to hide. Hermes lent Perseus winged sandals to fly, and Athena gave him a polished shield. Perseus then proceeded to the Gorgons' cave. In the cave he came upon the sleeping Medusa. By viewing Medusa's reflection in his polished shield, he safely approached and cut off her head. From her neck sprang Pegasus "he who sprang" and Chrysaor "sword of gold"the result of Poseidon and Medusa's mating.
The other two Gorgons pursued Perseus,  but, wearing his helm of darkness, he escaped. From here he proceeded to visit King Atlas who had refused him hospitality; in revenge Perseus turned him to stone. Perseus und Andromeda, c. Cassiopeia, having boasted her daughter Andromeda equal in beauty to the Nereidsdrew the vengeance of Poseidonwho sent an inundation on the land and a sea serpent, Cetuswhich destroyed man and beast. The oracle of Ammon announced that no relief would be found until the king exposed his daughter Andromeda to the monster, and so she was fastened naked to a rock on the shore.
