Use the Hannon Library website to access an article from an academic journal. The article must be related to one of the topics in the class text (pick a journal about the importance of astronomy). Provide a precise citation for the source. Show the exact path you used on the library website to access the article. I should be able to follow the same path and access the same article. If I cannot find it, no extra credit will be given. Once you have accessed the article, read it and answer the following:

Who is the author of the article?

What are the author's credentials?

Might the author be biased? If so, how?

What kind of evidence is provided in the article? Give specific examples. What is the larger context of the article?
