Extra Terrestrial Intelligence life probably exists elsewhere in the Universe, but so far there hasn't been any signs to vindicate the theory
The primary means of putting a payload into space is the rocket. Rockets have been around for hundreds of years, but it wasn't until the Second World War that their potential for delivering a payload, in this case a bomb, was seriously developed.
Radio telescopes are instruments that are used to detect radio signals in space. They are also invaluable for collecting data from satellites and tracking their position.
Polarised lenses can be used to reduce reflected glare on the source of water by removing the horizontal portion of the light. This is useful but it also has a negative effect on LCD screens, making them difficult to see.
The SETI Institute is an organisation that is involved in the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. It is involved in a number of activities that are intended to discover other intelligent life in the Universe.
There is a decline in the Bee population. This has been linked to pesticides and habitat loss.
The Earth has an ionosphere caused by ultra violet rays breaking apart atoms of air, ionising it. The Moon does not have an atmosphere and so should not have an ionosphere, but it does. It was discovered that ultra violet rays were acting on grains of dust ionising them, and the Moon is a very dusty place.
Someday, evidence that there is life out in the universe may be found
Early rockets weere highly prone to failure on launch, blowing up  shortly after take off.
Radio telescopes usually have a central antenna that picks up the signals reflected from a a large disc surrounding it.
Polarised lenses are popular for sunglasses
It is not well understood what the consequences of an encounter with alien species would be.
Bees are an essential part of the well being of Earth's Eco-system. Their decline is worrying scientists all over the world.
The Moon does actually have a very thin atmosphere caused by gases escaping from rocks.
