One thought on “Kangaroo Comics – Episode 44

  1. On this episode, Kangaroo comic strips uses its characters to narrate the formation and different layers of the Sun as the raindrops diminishes. The presences of glooming light wavelengths penetrating into earth’s atmosphere creating brightness. This topic is captured in “Storyberry Series – Astronomy” by Dr. Valerie Njee. Here is a paragraph from the book stating “The Sun’s atmosphere
    has 3 layers: the photosphere, the chromosphere and
    the corona. The chromosphere, which gives out a
    reddish glow can only be seen for a few seconds
    right after the diamond ring disappears during a total
    eclipse of the Sun.

    With about the question asked “What of plants? “- Plants uses light during photosynthesis which is a process used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy, normally from the Sun, into chemical energy that can be later released to fuel the organisms’ activities. This chemical energy is stored in carbohydrate molecules, such as sugars, which are synthesized from carbon dioxide and water – hence the name photosynthesis, from the Greek word photo refers to “light”, and synthesis is “putting together”. In most cases, oxygen is also released as a waste product. Most plants, algae, and cyanobacteria perform photosynthesis; such organisms are called photoautotrophs. Photosynthesis maintains atmospheric oxygen levels and supplies all of the organic compounds and some of the energy necessary for life on Earth.


    Oxygen is random and abundant. It is also commonly produced from the combination of Carbon dioxide and water, and other combinations of compounds and elements in both solid or liquid states with the release of oxygen. Oxygen is readily produce everywhere in the universe and abundant. Similarly oceanic organisms produces oxygen through their gills while immense water.

    Although photosynthesis is performed differently by different species, the process always begins when energy from light is absorbed by proteins called reaction centers that contain green chlorophyll pigments. In plants, these proteins are held inside organelles called chloroplasts, which are most abundant in leaf cells, while in bacteria they are embedded in the plasma membrane.
    Different Soluble Carbohydrates Sugar Compounds.

    In this light-dependent reactions, some energy is used to strip electrons from suitable substances, such as water, producing oxygen gas. Here is a link illustrating compounds formed during photosynthesis such as carbohydrates and sugars which are glucose, fructose and sucrose.
