Scientists believed that life began 3.5 billion years ago when chemicals containing carbon were mixed by chance. They combined to become living things. Each generation of living things can be delicately different from the last one. Over a long period, these small alteration become big disparity. This is evolution.
Between 4.1 and 3.8 billion years ago, was a period known as the heavy bombardment period (Evolution of the Moon. 2012). During this period, the moon was hit with numerous impacts that left craters. 3.1 to 1 billion years ago, mare volcanism took place (Evolution of the Moon. 2012).
If you use something in the universe, such as a star, you can attempt to follow the causes of each effect. The star is an effect of a high concentration of interstellar gas and dust in an extremely cold region of space. The next question is, where does interstellar gas and dust come from? Interstellar gas is formed from molecular gas, which was formed by a theorized concept, called the ‘big bang theory’. The big bang was an enormous blast of energy throughout the universe, which formed all things instead the universe.
Reptile Evolution in the Cenozoic Era Cenozoic Era is that stretch of geologic time that began approximately 65 mya and extends into the present. It is divided into Paleogene period (Paleocene, Eocene, Oligocene) 65-23 mya, Neogene period (Miocene, Pliocene) 23-2.58 mya, and Quarternary period (Pleistocene, Holocene) 2.6 mya to present Reptiles that survived the mass extinction continued to evolve during this time into various open ecological niches (Fossilmuseum, 2016). As evidenced by existing records, not much of evolutionary changes occurred over this period since most reptiles resembled what we recognize them to be today and all dinosaurs except birds lived on. The Cenozoic period is characterized by diversification of plants inclusive
10 years later, The Cloverfield Paradox was released. This movie is meant to be the prequel to Cloverfield and sets up how the entire incident in New York happened. Within the movie we see that a group of scientists from around the world board a spacecraft and head to space. There, they try and figure out how create a sufficient unlimited power source to save the Earth from power depletion. In order to create this power source, the scientists fire up this machine that accidentally create this portals to other dimensions, and as a result, the monster in Cloverfield is able to transport onto the Earth and wreak havoc on New York City.
The cratering record is evidence that Venus resurfaced within the past half-billion years. In the most recent cratering, Venus destroyed older craters. Geological conditions covered much of the older craters, older sediments also evolved. Studies suggest that the resurfacing occurred in the past half-billion years. 11) Describe four ways Mars is similar to Earth today.
Anthropologist Meave Leakey was responsible for naming the species in 1995.Known as Lucy fossil Australopithecus afarensis ranged through Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania from 3.85 to 2.95 million years ago. The species is thought to be either a direct ancestor of genus Homo or a close relative of such an ancestor. It is also the first species that made scientists realize that upright walking evolved before large brains. It was discovered that afarensis walked on two legs but still had long arms for climbing trees. Its brain size was about a third of the human brain size, its teeth were larger than human teeth but smaller than ape teeth and it also had a protruding ape-like jaw.
Uranus has got a temperature around -224°C. The materials, pressures and temperature are too extreme for humans to live at Uranus. There is only one spacecraft that have visited Uranus because the distance between Uranus and Earth is 3 billion kilometers. The spacecraft that came to Uranus is called NASA’s Voyager 2. The spacecraft found out information about the moon and the rings around Uranus all of that in just 6 hours.
Dinosaurs are the most successful of all terrestrial vertebrates. They dominated life on land for about 150 million years, which is the longest for any animal on Earth till date. Humans in comparison have been on earth for nearly, only 1 million years. Dinosaurs, owing to their gigantic size and uniqueness, have remained in the limelight since the discovery of it’s fossils. Scientists have studied and debated over it’s various characters.
