Similarities: The atmospheres of both have a lot of carbon dioxide. Micrometeorite impacts are avoided in both atmospheres. Differences: Venus’s atmosphere is much more dense, while Mars’s atmosphere is thin. Most water in Venus is in gas form in its atmosphere, while not in
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.
The Lunar Day Animation Questions: a. How much time passes between one high tide and the next? The tides are created by the gravitational pull between the moon and the Earth, so the time difference between the tides depends on how long a lunar day is. A lunar day is 24 hours and fifty minutes and in one lunar day the Earth rotates through two tidal bulges. The time between one high tide and the next is twelve hours and twenty five minutes.
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. Therefore, the portion of this hemisphere that is visible to an observer on Earth can vary from about 100% (full moon) to 0% (new moon).
Astronomers from WISE say that with the new infrared observations, Baptistina is not the responsible party leaving the Origin of the Asteroid a mystery to scientists. Immediate Impact on Earth The asteroid which collided with Earth 66 million years ago immediately created a deep hole, known as the peak ring, with an area of 100 kilometres wide and 30 kilometres deep, leaving the crater mainly under sea. Just after the impact deep granite bedrock, in liquid form, rebounded up to 10 kilometres tall before falling into a circular ridge. Next, the peak ring was enclosed in a layer of rocks, called a breccia, that contains bits of broken rock and impact melt. The Chicxulub asteroid originally landed near the town of Chicxulub which is where the asteroid got its name.
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.
Discovered in 1781, Uranus is the third largest planet in the solar system. Even though it is bright blue, it is still nearly impossible to spot with the naked eye because it is the seventh planet from the sun. The blue color is due to the composition, which is 83% hydrogen, 15% helium, and 2% methane. The methane absorbs red light, which is why we see the planet as a bluish-green color. The clouds of Uranus are similar to the
This scientific study will analyze the first moon landing by NASA in the Apollo 11 space mission from July 16th to July 20th in 1969. The launching of the Apollo II program was the first designated landing of a space vehicle in the history of the human race. Under the leadership of Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin, the Apollo 11 mission defined one of the most important acheivements of early astronuatics in the Apollo space program. The initial stage of the mission involved being launched from the Kennedy Space Center by a Saturn V rocket. This rocket had three major parts involved in the space mission, which included a command module, service module, and lunar module that carried the three astronauts into space after the launch.
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. Nobody is known to be credited for the discovery of Mercury, though Timocharis made the first recorded observation of Mercury in 265 BC and does not have an actual discovery date.
E = hf E = hcT/b hf = hcT/b f = cT/b f = ((m/s)*K) / (mK) = 1/s = s^-1 = Hz B E=mc2 the Sun produces its energy by the conversion of matter into energy in its core E=mc2 Stars like the Sun live for around 10 billion years or more. but massive stars, die allot quicker because they burn massive amounts of nuclear fuel. Stars are giant nuclear reactors. In the center of stars, atoms are taken apart by allot of atomic collisions that change the atomic structure this then release allot of energy. This makes the stars’ super hot and bright.
A discovery scientist found out as soon as information came in was that Pluto is hazing. The layers of haze span about 81 miles. So with this mind scientist had to wait until the planet was silhoutted from the sun to truly see it 's surface. The haze is so bad that it creates some kind of smog effect on the surface. In all of the discoveries I liked the learning about the heavenly body 's temperature.
