Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once

Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years? No one would sleep that night, of course. We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God. Instead the stars come out every night, and we watch television.
Paul Hawken (1946– ) Environmentalist, Entrepreneur, Journalist, and Author
Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803–April 27, 1882) American Poet
Respond to these three questions:
1.    What do you think about the comment by Emerson as told by Hawken? What we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years? No one would sleep that night, of course. We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God.
2.    Consider Emerson’s quote: What we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years? No one would sleep that night, of course. We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God. What do you believe Emerson is really trying to say to us?
3.    Consider Hawken’s comments in regard to Emerson’s quote: Instead the stars come out every night and we watch television. Is this true for most people? What do you believe Hawken is trying to say to us?

1.    First, read the article: Milky Way’s black hole flared 2 million years ago

1.    First, read the article: Milky Way’s black hole flared 2 million years ago.
2.    Next, research supermassive black holes
o    Go online and research more about supermassive black holes, using reliable sites. Find at least one (1) site that has information about supermassive black holes, not just the Milky Way’s black holes
3.    Lastly, after completing the online research and reading the article, answer the following questions:
o    What additional information did you uncover in regard to supermassive black holes? How does this compare to the Astronomy article Milky Way’s black hole flared 2 million years ago?
o    Why do you think astronomers use two different names for the Milky Way’s black hole; Sagittarius A* and Sgr A*?3.
o    It was noted that the last outburst was “Like a fossil record of a huge outburst of energy.” What do you suppose is meant by that statement?
o    What type of “fireworks” might astronomers see when the Milky Way’s black hole again becomes active in the near future, as soon as this year? Does it pose any danger to us on Earth? Why or Why not?
