Encyclopedia > Nick GAS

Nickelodeon Games and Sports for Kids (commonly referred to as Nick GAS), is a U.S. cable television network which was launched on March 1, 1999 as part of MTV Networks' suite of digital cable channels. Olympic swimmer and Figure It Out host Summer Sanders was named the Commissioner of Nick GAS. Dave Aizer, Mati Moralejo and Vivianne Collins were the network's original on-air hosts.

Nick GAS' programming primarily consists of children's game shows and sports-related programs from Nickelodeon, its parent network. These include Finders Keepers, GUTS, Rocket Power, SK8-TV, and various versions of Double Dare and Figure It Out. Recently, Nick GAS began producing its own original programming, including Gamefarm and Splash TV. Programs are usually grouped together in blocks such as "Family Fuel," "Extreme GAS" and "Pumping GAS."

In lieu of commercials, Nick GAS airs interstitial segments, some of which are produced at Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, Florida. The studio segments often include competitions between families, or interviews with athletes and other celebrities. Other interstitials include "Heroes of the Game," "GAS Grill," "Skill Drill," and "MLS Play of the Week."

The hydrogen gas is observed in a variety of states: in ionized, neutral atomic, and molecular forms.
The gas clouds are assumed to move in the plane of the disk on nearly circular orbits.
Using basic trigonometry, the distance of the fast moving gas (at ``A'') from the galactic center = (the Sun's distance)× sin[(galactic longitude)], where the galactic longitude is the angular separation between the cloud and the galactic center and sin() is the ``trigonometric sine'' function (it is the ``sin'' key on a scientific calculator).
