RADAR

By Samson Right

Intro

Have you ever wondered what things use Radar? Are you a Bee Keeper? Do you love your bee? And what about your turtle? Read on to learn more about them.  In my report you will learn how it works, using it, and its history.  I hope you like it.

How It Works

How does a Radar work and what does it stand for? According to Wikipedia, radar is something that is in use all around us, although it is normally invisible. Air traffic control uses radar to track planes both on the ground and in the air, and also to guide planes in for smooth landings. Police use radar to detect the speed of passing motorists. NASA uses radar to map the Earth and other planets, to track satellites and space debris and to help with things like docking and maneuvering. The military uses it to detect the enemy and to guide weapons. Radar stands for Radio Detection and Ranging. Or you could call it Radio Direction Finding.

How does Bee Radar Work? Bee Radar is a good thing for the bee keepers. According to PHYSORG paper published in Nature on May 12th provides new data that resolves a long-standing scientific controversy. In the 1960s, Nobel Prize winning zoologist, Karl von Frisch, proposed that honeybees use dance (the "waggle dance") as a coded message to guide other bees to new food sources. If a honeybee worker discovers a good feeding site it is believed that she informs her nest mates through a dance that describes the distance and direction of the feeding site.  Most recruited bees undertook a flight path that took them straight to the vicinity of the feeding site where they all spent a lot of time in searching flights, trying to locate its exact position.

Using it

Bees and turtles can use RADAR. According to PHYSORG they use radar like we use it. The turtle uses radar to find out where and it tells the owner where is. Bees use radar to help the beekeeper find the bees and it helps the bees to find their spot that they found the most food.

How do they use Radar on Ships.   According to Wikipedia radar helps People on the ships because it uses sound waves to work and bounces off things. (They use radar on a show called The Deadliest Catch to find missing ships.) 

History

Who made the first RADAR and when. According to About Heinrich Hertz in Germany calculated that an electric current swinging very rapidly back and forth in a conducting wire would radiate electromagnetic waves into the surrounding space (today we would call such a wire an "antenna").Heinrich Hertz in Germany calculated that an electric current swinging very rapidly back and forth in a conducting wire would radiate electromagnetic waves into the surrounding space (today we would call such a wire an "antenna"). With such a wire he created (in 1886) and detected such oscillations in his lab, using an electric spark, in which the current oscillates rapidly (that is how lightning creates its characteristic crackling noise on the radio!).

LetŐs talk about radars and bees.  According to PHYSORG, Karl von Frisch made Bee Radar and Bee radar the smallest Radar. In the 1960s, Nobel Prize winning zoologist, Karl von Frisch, proposed that honeybees use dance (the "waggle dance") as a coded message to guide other bees to new food sources. Bee Radar works and is the smallest Radar in history.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Radar is a good thing to have on the ships and Nasa.
