Space. Full of many mysteries, intricacies, and discoveries tied into one. Humanity has made many advancements in space exploration and discovery over the years. During this time, our explorations have helped us discover new facts about our Solar System, other planets and other systems. This exploration will only continue to expand our minds and the discoveries awaiting us.

But just how amazing are our advancements? A wonderful example of these are both the Voyager I and Voyager II missions.

Part I: Expanding Past our Solar System

The Earth. Revolving infinitely around a central piece to a central system in an even larger central contraption. Formed 4.5 billion years ago, our Earth is the reason for life itself as we know it. In this post, I will be telling the story about Earth and how its’ composition is the key to life today.

In this module assignment, I basically re-did my Module 01 (only the planets in our Solar System) and Module 04 Assignments, but am telling it through the lens of a story, rather than the two tutorials that I previously did. I first merged two…

In Boulder, in particular, there is always construction. Day in and day out there is road works, new buildings being put up, and renovations happening all over the place! But how do we really know what people are building? In this module, I will be exploring the top 100 buildings that people often build in this area, just to get a general idea as to what the outcome of all this construction is.

To start off with this, I connected to the SQL workbench that was created by Professor Keegan, about boulder properties and the information associated in this database…

In this module assignment I merged two CSV files that both contain different planetary facts about the planets in our solar system. The first CSV file contains the name of the planet, the star it orbits, the star type, the mass of the planet, the orbital period, and the distance from the sun. The other CSV file contains the planet name, the volume, the equatorial radius, the polar radius, the volumetric mean radius, the ellipticity, the mean density, the surface gravity, and the escape velocity. …

When first scraping Wikipedia, one must find something that they want to compare/contrast, record, and analyze. For this tutorial I used the example of scraping Versace’s Wikipedia page for revisions and trends and then comparing that to Gucci’s Wikipedia page.

First you must always import all of the functions that you will need in order to do this. If you do not do this step, you will be unable to scrape the data properly to create your own data frames.

Import all the functions needed to preform this action

Next, you should make sure that you are looking at the current content of the page itself, where you will…

Data. This word seemingly comes up constantly in our society, but what is it? Data is the facts and statistics collected together for reference or analysis. We use data for so many things, such as the transformational analytics (aggregation, enrichment, and processing), learning analytics (regression, clustering, and classification), and predictive analytics (simulation and optimization). Data is a universal term and the process of collecting, analysis, and concluding a data set, to answer a/either qualitative or quantitative question(s) is used by everyone.

In Module 01, for my INFO 3204 class, Information Expositions, we took a dive into a data set of…
