Transcript of My Seven Wonders of the World

photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli By Jonelle Martin My Seven Wonders of the World The International Space Station A huge accomplishment for many countries of the world: The International Space Station. The Niagara Falls The water cascading over the falls is white and makes a constant and continuous 'whooshing' sound. The Niagara Falls is on my Seven Wonders list because it is the biggest waterfall in the world, it has a very strong erosive force and it has been used for hydroelectric energy since the nineteenth century. The Great Barrier Reef The Great Barrier Reef has the world's largest coral reef, the world's biggest structure made of living creatures and it's a protected natural wonder, it clearly deserves to stay on the list of natural wonders of the world. The Great Pyramid of Giza Sand blows in your face as you make your slow approach towards a looming figure. The sand clears, and there is a giant pyramid- The Great Pyramid of Giza. This 4,000-year-old structure is on my Seven Wonders of the World list because of it's age, what it's been through all of these years and what it can withstand. The Eiffel Tower The Aurora Borealis/Australis Auroreal magnetism, solar winds and the magnetosphere create the aurora borealis and the aurora australis (The northern and southern lights). Many countries of the world are involved with the International Space Station (hence "International"). Some might say that there are other things that can be on my Seven Wonders List that are on Earth, but the I.S.S is in space, so it's a major accomplishment for us 'earthlings'. The International Space Station was built for science experiments. An example is how humans would manage in space if they lived there for a lifetime.

The International Space Station is also an engineering project. Many countries are involved in this out-of-this-world extravaganza. Crew aboard the International Space Station study astronomy, astrobiology, human research, space sciences, materials science, space weather and meteorology (The study of weather on Earth). Some of these are things that we don't have a chance to study on Earth, so these studies are very important so we can learn more about space. The Niagara Falls is the largest waterfall in the world so it basically deserves to automatically be added to a Seven Wonders List-mine or an official one. The Niagara Falls has a very strong erosive force. Approximately one foot of stone and/or rock is eroded away per year because of the Niagara Falls. Many years ago, the eroding force of the Niagara Falls was so great that it eroded away three feet of stone per year. The Niagara Falls has three drop-offs, while most waterfalls has only one. The Great Pyramid of Giza is approximately four-thousand years old. It has withstood earthquakes a numerous amount of times. The Great Pyramid of Giza The aurora borealis can only be seen in far north places. The aurora australis can only be seen in far south places. The aurora borealis and the aurora australis have rare colors, such as blue and red. These rare colors can be seen when there are high levels of solar winds interfering with the magnetosphere. The aurora borealis/australis is something that can only be seen in far north and south places. These two magnetisim-related wonders of nature deserve recognition. Copyright Jonelle Martin May, 9th. 2013 Learning from these studies originating from the International Space Station can help us to learn more about space exploration. Also, the Niagara Falls has been used for hydroelectric power since the nineteenth century. It's a beautiful wonder of nature and an eco-resource. has had thieves steal different stone blocks from its structure. It's surprising that someone came along and made a small village out of the pyramid's sand blocks. I have the Eiffel Tower on my Seven Wonders. I understand that some people may think that it is just a tower. However, the Eiffel Tower is on my list because of its characteristics, fame and history. The Eiffel Tower is on my Seven Wonders list because it has importance to the people who helped create it and those who are related to those people. My research shows that it was created for the one-hundred year anniversary of the French revolution in Europe. The Eiffel Tower is on my Seven Wonders list because of what it represents. I found that the tower represents Paris as being one of its major landmarks.
