Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun in the solar system. It has the third largest mass in the solar system. It was William Herschel who discovered Uranus in 1781. In two years William thought it was a star or a comet. But then Uranus was accepted as a planet because of Johann Elert Bode’s observations.
The Chicxulub asteroid originally landed near the town of Chicxulub which is where the asteroid got its name. As the asteroid was discovered in 1978, scientists believed the impact was what created the town and now holds one of the most famous craters to this date. The Chicxulub crater has an estimated diameter of 15 kilometres and it is believed that the asteroid delivered an estimated energy of 10 billion Hiroshima
Known as the smallest planet in our solar system and the closest to the Sun , Mercury can be expressed as one of the most unique planets in our solar system. The Universe is estimated to be about 12 light years in distance and continues expanding, with this we have only had men on the moon and robots go to a couple of planets known to humankind. Were pretty puny in comparison to our universe as a whole. But today, I’ll be telling you about one of our familiarly known planets in our solar system, Mercury. Starting off, why was Mercury named Mercury?
Which marked the first a human being every stepped onto the moon: "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” (Capelotti 35). After this important step, Aldrin joined Armstrong as the second human being to walk on the moon. During this time, the astronauts spent 21.5 hours on the moon exploring the surface and taking soil samples to bring home to earth. After this period of time, the astronauts re-entered the lunar module and returned to the command module in the moon’s
On January 9, 1969 Armstrong was named commander of Apollo 11, and that was the first try to land a human on the moon. On July 16 1969 Armstrong and his pilots took off to the moon. About seven hours after they landed, they opened the door and walked down the ladder before he became the first man to walk on the moon, He said “that’s one small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind “. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent more than 2 hours outside the craft. They studied the surface and collected rocks, and after a day, they left and docked with Collins while he was in orbit then all three flew back.
On April 11, 1970, the Apollo 13 mission broke the mold of space exploration programs. Three men, one spacecraft, and a Mission Control crew set off for what was supposed to be an exploration and experimentation of rocks found on the moon. This mission became one of the most miraculous events in history. The Apollo 13 is significant to exploration, encounter and exchange in history in that it set the foundation for the space program's growth and further development. The spacecraft’s crew encountered many obstacles during the mission leading NASA to take stronger precautions for future missions.
General Lunar Background The Moon is Earth’s only natural satellite. Understanding how it evolved is a very important step in understanding lunar exploration and the specific features of the moon. 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.
“Is this for real?” asked Alison Rigby, a 33-year-old prospective candidate of the interplanetary mission to colonize Mars, known as the Mars One mission. What can anyone possibly reply other than this if one is acquainted with such a controversial project? It is indeed thrilling, or perhaps alarming, that there are genuine intentions and even concrete plans to send people to the red planet. The good old curiosity might have prompted mankind, but with the level of technology, the amount of funding, and the degree of knowledge and experience these Earthlings, who are operating the Mars One mission, currently possess about Mars, the Mars One space rocket for the manned space voyage in 2026 might just become an enormous metallic flying tomb carrying
The future of space exploration will have forever changed from this moment on. On July 16,1969, man did the impossible, and landed on the Moon. The mission to arrive in total lasted a little bit over eight days. July 20 was the official day of the landing. The whole idea started with the President of the United States at the time, John F. Kennedy.
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.
Pluto, a planet that is only known to the average huan as the reject planet (once the ninth planet of our solar system,but now catorgized as a dwarf planet) and no thing else. So because of this lack of knowlegede scientist at NASA made a spacecraft named New Horizon to find anymore information on Pluto via flyby scan. After 9 and a half years hardship the spacecraft reached its destination. When the spacecraft sent information to the scientist on the dwarf planet scientist were dumbfounded on the output data. New discoveries were found on the once ninth planet and some don 't know what to do.
He built telescopes by himself starting in 1926, after he graduated from high school. He built his first telescope when he was only 20, using mirrors, lenses, and parts of an old Buick car. He used instructions from a 1925 issue of Popular Astronomy. Through the telescope he made observations of Jupiter and Mars. He sent his drawn renditions of Jupiter and Mars to the Lowell Observatory, hoping to get feedback from professional astronomers.
The discovery also challenges the accepted model for galaxy formation, which has most galaxies slowly bulking up by absorbing pieces of other galaxies, rather than growing internally. The fact that scientists are observing this galaxy at a time when the universe is only a bit over 1.4 billion years old is also strange. That means that in its infancy, the galaxy is already exhibiting this odd behavior. "This galaxy is undergoing a major baby boom, producing most of its stars all at once," Peter Capak of NASA 's Spitzer Science Center said. "If our human population was produced in a similar boom, then almost all of the people alive today would be the same
