Mars’s two satellites are Phobias and Demos, which scientist believed are captured asteroids. Mars was named after the God of War. Interestingly, this is the complete opposite of love, the god that Venus was named after. Mars does not have as many volcanoes as Venus. However, Mars has the largest volcano in the solar system called Olympus Mons.
It is 2.26 times larger than the sun, 7 times brighter, and approximately 2 times hotter. Feuer Leava does not rotate, so one side is constantly facing the star. This side is covered in oceans of lava, fire, and molten rock, while the other side is enclosed in dry, scorching deserts. The average surface temperature of Feuer Leava is 1,314 degrees Fahrenheit.
Living on Mars could possibly be compared to living on Antarctica. However, there has never been a time in which a great feat has been accomplished without a great sacrifice. Most likely some of us wouldn’t be here right now if it weren’t for the countless people who fought for America’s independence. If it wasn’t for the millions of young men who died in WWII, Hitler might still be killing Jews and other races. Throughout history, every great event most likely cost the life of somebody.
‘That 's nonsense’, said Bad Astronomy’s Plait. Moondust, or regolith, is "like a finely ground powder. When you look at it under a microscope, it almost looks like volcanic ash. So when you step on it, it can compress very easily into the shape of a
The Ice Age also killed of the Megafauna, such as Wooly Mammoths, and Saber Toothed Tigers. The study of the Ice Ages, helps scientists study for the future of Earth’s climate. How many different Galaxies are there? There are many different galaxies in the universe. Scientists say, the exact number of galaxies would be extremely hard to find, seeing as, even with all of our technology, we still would not be able to see the exact number.
This process continues until the star becomes layered like an onion. The closer to the core of the star, the heavier the elements are, elements such as neon, oxygen, and iron. Since iron doesn’t produce energy when it fuses, the fire in the star begins to go out. Iron continues to build up in the star’s core until almost all the remaining fuel runs out. Gravity causes the star to squash itself, making tempters skyrocket within the star, causing the star to explode.
It is located in the Actinide metals section and also the F-block. Chemical Properties: Reaction with air: - When plutonium is exposed to air it begins to oxidise, it forms a yellowish-brown outer coat and begins to tarnish. Soluble in: - Hydrochloric acid Insoluble in: - Nitric acid - Concentrated hydrogen sulfide
A binary system is one in which the planet is not large enough to force the moon to orbit around it, but rather both bodies revolve around a central gravitational point that is created by the focus of gravity from both bodies. Earth is nearly 80 times larger than the moon and the distance between earth and the moon is also very substantial that forces the moon to orbit around the earth and create a gravitational pull on the earth that creates the phenomenon of the seas and oceans. Pluto’s moon Charon is only 8 times larger than the planet that creates the phenomenon of Binary
An earthling cannot survive in that temperature without advanced technology. Another problem living in mars would be that Mars’ atmosphere is thinner than Earth. Mars’ atmosphere is composed of 95 percent of CO2 whereas on earth CO2 is 0.04 percentages, in earth the amount of oxygen is 20.95 whereas on Mars it is 0.2 percent of Oxygen, which is 100 times lower, compared to Earth. An earthling would have to put on a spacesuit to survive the low pressure, not considering the lack of oxygen. The pressure is so low, the saliva in your mouth and the moisture coating the interior of your lungs would tend to
Close to its moon Triton, Neptune’s has an approximate surface temperature of -210° C and although it has a considerable distance and low power input from the Sun, Neptune has an incredibly active climate. On Neptune, winds are recorded to reach up to 1,500 miles an hour, three times stronger than Jupiter’s and nine times stronger than Earth’s currently making it the fastest terrestrial winds found in our solar system. To complement this, Neptune has two particularly intense storms ordinarily noted as the Great Dark Spot and the Small Dark Spot. The Great Dark Spot was said to be approximately the same size as Earth while the Small Dark Spot (also known as the Dark Spot 2 and the Wizards Eye) was roughly known to be the size of Earth’s moon. These Dark Spots on Neptune are quite similar to the Great Red Spot on Jupiter and usually compared to one another.
In Richard A. Muller’s “Nuclear Waste”, he discusses the problem with left over nuclear waste and how it is causing headaches for scientists and politicians. The University of California at Berkeley professor agrees that nuclear waste does present a threat to our well being, but also states that society assumes there is a much larger danger than actually exists. Muller does a great job at proving his point by explaining how nuclear waste is not a forever lasting danger and by also providing alternative methods of storing the waste. Regardless of whether one supports the development of nukes, Muller mentions that this waste already exists and a solution must be made for it.
Mark Watney is the protagonist of the novel The Martian. Throughout the novel, he has an ongoing list of problems that he has to overcome on a planet that is over 12 light minutes away from Earth. Right away at the beginning of the novel, Mark Watney has a life threatening problem. His crew left him on a deserted planet after a devastating sandstorm. Watney’s side was penetrated by a satellite communication dish.
