Estudo revela como a poluição luminosa compromete pesquisas científicas

Um estudo desenvolvido pelo Laboratório Nacional de Astrofísica (LNA), unidade de pesquisa do Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia, Inovações e Comunicações (MCTIC), revela como a poluição luminosa compromete as pesquisas científicas.

Sobre o assunto o programa Revista Brasil entrevistou o Coordenador do Observatório do Pico dos Dias, Pesquisador Saulo Gargaglioni. Ele explica que poluição luminosa é toda luz, que não se direciona para o lugar em que deveria se direcionar. Você quer iluminar sempre o plano do solo, mas, por desconhecimento, ou por mal instalação do equipamento, você direciona a luz para cima. “Além desperdiçar energia, no caso das pesquisas astronômicas, você cria como uma cortina no céu, que atrapalha você visualizar e também pesquisar objetos de menor brilho”.

Saulo fala dos 3 tipos de poluição luminosa que são brilho no céu, ofuscamento e luz intrusa. Ele cita exemplos de como a poluição luminosa afeta o dia a dia das pessoas e também a saúde do ser humano.

O Revista Brasil é uma produção das Rádios EBC e vai ao ar, de segunda a sábado, às 8h, na Rádio Nacional AM Brasília, em rede com as Radio Nacional da Amazônia, do Rio de Janeiro e do Alto Solimões.  Apresentação: Valter Lima.

We’ve got to get that play.”It worked. Combine all of your research to calculate the point spread. There is no exact science when determining this figure. However, use the research to get the figure. For instance, in basketball if the favorite averages 100 points, with a victory margin of five points, and is playing at home, then make it a five point favorite. Conversely, if a team has an inferior record, is playing on the road, scores 95 points and loses by three points, make it a three point underdog.
