The moon formed roughly 4.5 billion years ago. About 0.2 billion years later, the South Pole- Aitken Basin was formed by a large impact. Between 4.1 and 3.8 billion years ago, was a period known as the heavy bombardment period (Evolution of the Moon.

Mars is an example of a frontier in Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles ,but in our world frontier have been conquered and some still remain to this day.An example of one of these frontiers is the European colonization of Africa. One correlation between the Martian Chronicles and European colonization of Africa would be the The Sahara Desert and space both are giant hindrance and impassable without the proper equipment.The Sahara is one of the hottest and driest places in the world with temperature with highest temperature reached being 136 degrees,which is the hottest temperature ever recorded on earth.Space on the other hand stretches trillions of miles and its temperature between the moon and earth being as low as -454 degrees.These hurdles were passed with ships the Europeans used to go around the desert,and spaceships were used to go through space Another connection between these two frontiers would be why people colonized.In the Martian Chronicles “They were leaving bad wives or bad jobs or bad towns” to quote Pg 99 The Settlers.During the colonization of Africa people left unemployment, poverty, homelessness to name a few, these reasons tie into jobs and towns so you could say they were also leaving bad towns and bad jobs.

This area runs from east to west along the Equator and is more than 6,000 km (3,700 m), Cameroon and Gabon are to the west, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Rift Valley are to the south. The capital of the CAR is Bangui and Brazzaville is the capital of ROC. This is the second largest rainforest in the world and covers most of the Congo River Basin and west coast of Africa (Haggett 2002). The Congo River is the second largest river in the world and runs along the borders of the ROC and DRC. For over a million years the Congo River has deposited rich mineral sandy sediments; however, the soil is poor due to the amount of rainfall that washes away the rich mineral deposits (Congo Republic Dashboard; Haggett, 2002).
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.
Then the Americans became more curious. So Americans headed into Antarctica with the military to go and check it out with the command of Admiral Richard .E Byrd. Their exploration of the unknown military base lasted roughly eight weeks to accomplish In conclusion The conspiracy theory of the Nazi base in Antarctica is possibly true and maybe false. In this couple pages I have explained thing to you about the topic and from what I found it is probably a real place. The naval base in Antarctica is thought to be
The Inca empire spanned approximately 4000 kilometers from the South American coastline, starting from modern day Ecuador reaching to Chile. Machu Picchu has been a long-standing marvel that represents the Inca’s competency and resourcefulness. The site is located northwest of Cusco, Peru, on a mountain ridge 2,430 meters above sea level. Machu Picchu was built around the 15th century, but was abandoned around 100 years later after the fall of the Inca empire. This has been attributed to the Spanish’s military conquests and virulent diseases that accompanied.
