Intermediate cratering was smaller asteroids and debris smashing into the moon, creating smaller craters in the surface of the mare. From this time, until today, ray cratering has been taking place (Evolution of the Moon. 2012). These are the craters that have bright rays coming off of them. Lunar exploration began when the Soviets’ Luna flew by the moon in 1959. Soon after, Pioneer 4, sent by NASA, passed by the moon.
2) Why might you expect that Venus’s surface conditions should resemble Earth’s more than they do? One would expect more resemblance, because both
The Chicxulub impact, known as the Chicxulub crater, was formed by an asteroid that collided with the Yucatan Peninsula located in Mexico 65.5 million years ago. The asteroid was said to hold the same energy as 100 million atomic bombs which precipitated an incident that destroyed the dinosaurs and nearly all life on Earth, leaving the atmosphere inhabitable for centuries. What is an Asteroid? Asteroids are pieces of rocks that aren't called planets based on the how small they are.
The movie Apollo 13 is based on the actual Apollo 13 mission in April 11, 1970 that was just a routine mission to the moon that went horribly wrong. However, the movie is overall historically inaccurate, primarily due to the false facts it ultimately portrays about the moon and the life depending procedures they needed to perform. In the movie Apollo 13 the central focus in the beginning of the movie was to go to the moon and in the meantime encountered the threatening situation to go around the moon in order for the crew to arrive to earth safely; however, throughout the film it presented false depictions of the moon, such as its phases and what is known about the far side of the moon. Since the movie’s spotlight was on Apollo 13’s landing
Knowing this, humans living on Mercury is highly unlikely, as there is no atmosphere, meaning no possible air for a human to breath or keep safe, as meteors will collide easily with Mercury. Mercury is also very close to the Sun, making it horridly hot and unbearable for a human, even though Mercury has no atmosphere to keep the planet warm, large waves of heat and radiation hit the planet and cause harm to the human body. Mercury also has no known water or ice, nor does it have any form of a food source to a human. On the bright side (literally) , no atmosphere means no bad weather.
The lunar phase or phase of the moon is the shape of the illuminated (sunlit) portion of the Moon as seen by an observer on Earth. The lunar phases change cyclically as the Moon orbits the Earth, according to the changing positions of the Moon and Sun relative to the Earth. The Moon 's rotation is tidally locked by the Earth 's gravity, therefore the same lunar surface always faces Earth. This face is variously sunlit depending on the position of the Moon in its orbit.
While NASA’s New Horizons flies by Pluto and targets new destinations farther than humans will physically experience in the near future, considering our distance from the Sun could help explain why the Earth can sustain life. What if Earth moved a mile closer to the Sun? Would we all burn up? Would our atmosphere disintegrate? Would we have an extreme runaway greenhouse effect and dry up like Venus?
“Fundamental to the conspiracy theory is our supposed inability to go to the Moon. The thought of humans traveling to the Moon was so fantastic even early science-fiction writers didn't predict it happening for centuries to come”(Villard). The rockets that made the moon landing possible were based upon the principles that were founded by Isaac Newton centuries ago, meaning that the underlying science was already there. The Saturn V rockets were more than capable of taking a man to the moon, and it was seen by thousands of eyewitnesses and media who saw the rocket blast off from the Kennedy space center in Florida (Villard). Those who claim that NASA could not reach the moon in the 1960’s discredit the hardworking engineers and scientists who paved the way for a lunar
And the mirror that people had said that SCIENTISTS placed on the moon even though it was not a mirror it was a piece of metal that was placed a 19 degree angle the laser that scientists placed to reflect off of the moon to be sent back to earth to prove we had went to the moon. If we had gone to the moon, we would have brought metal to the moon to where it becomes uncontrollably then why did the metal not melt? And the other countries were tracking them, who’s to say that we didn’t somehow jam the signal or re-route the power? Later on in the moon launch, the U.S was making steady progress, The ship was shown rotating in space! How was the ship rotating in space if there is no air in space?
It would be the first mission to reach Mercury, but it would require some ingenuity and the use of techniques that had never been done before to reach the planet. The only economical way for the probe to reach Mercury would be to use the gravity of Venus to change the trajectory of the probe so that fuel could be conserved . This technique had never been tried before, and thus the probe had to be launched within a specific window so that Venus’ orbit around the Sun would align correctly with Mercury’s orbit . The use of a gravity-assisted trajectory also brought many benefits outside of just economics. It would also allow for Mariner 10 to not just reaching the Mercury, but also make multiple flyby’s, limited only by the amount of fuel that was left for altitude control.
The air on Venus is mostly carbon dixide,this is because of its thick atmosphere Traps the air in planet in. (https://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/nasa-research-helps-unravel-mysteries-of-the-venusian-atmosphere) Since Venus has a thick Atmosphere The pressure there will crush any lender that tries to Well land. Earth has a strong magnetic field that protects its Venus however does not have That type of protect.
Some people believe that the moon rocks the astronauts brought back are actually from some kind of meteorite that might have crashed into the moon. The scientists can actually prove that the rocks
Tides are created because the Earth and the moon are attracted to each other, just like magnets are attracted to each other. The moon tries to pull at anything on the Earth to bring it closer, but the Earth is able to hold everything except the water. Since the water is a liquid, the Earth cannot hold to it, and the moon is able to pull at it. Each day, there are two high tides and two low tides. The ocean is constantly moving from high tide to low tide, repeating this process indefinitely.
Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, named, respectively, fear and panic, after the sons of Ares and Aphrodite. They are both small, irregularly shaped rocky bodies. Phobos is larger by several kilometers and also has larger craters, some stretching as far as 28 kilometers long and nearly as wide. However, Deimos is also home to very large craters.
It’s a planet because it has and orbits and moons that orbit it. It does one less moon then I thought but more than that it’s my little mystery planet. I will enjoy learning more about this small in statue but large in mystery planet. Because of its size compared to Mercury, it’s still a Dwarf planet. I learned it has less moons, but continues to have lots of
