The sun’s light reflecting off of the moon makes it visible to us on Earth. He also said that the moon revolves around the sun. This is wrong because the moon rotates counterclockwise around the Earth as the Earth revolves around the sun. The moon’s rotation around the Earth and sun’s light reflecting off of it causes the phases. The moon goes through 8 phases, new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter, and waning crescent.
This debris and piece of Earth molded together to form the Moon. The Moon then stayed and started orbiting the Earth. This theory explains why the Earth has a smaller core that is made of the same material as the Earths core. The impact from the collision could have resulted in the "Earth 's fast initial spin" (Newman). The energy from this collision is an explanation for the extra heating of the Moon.
It looked different, it had a ring around the planet. Back then, I did not know what the ring was, but I thought it was very different from others. Therefore, in this IA, I chose to do my research on Saturn and its satellite moons. Data Collection and Analysis The following data on the different planets and moons are from Wikipedia, I went on the Wikipedia page on each different planet and moon in order to get the data and organized into the following two tables. I used data of Saturn, and the 7 major satellites of
One example of history that is retained on the surface of the Moon but has been lost from the surfaces of the terrestrial planets is the simple impact craters. They are very common and very easily spotted on the moon. The simple impact is created from meteorite or comet crashing into the surface of the moon. At the moment of collision, the surface of the moon ejects debris out into space and leave a crater behind. A simple impact crater has a circular shape surrounded by a rim that is elevated from the center of the crater.
Introduction: In this lab, we measured the angular velocity of the sun (how fast the sun rotates on its axis) to find the time it takes for the sun to make a complete orbit. We did this by printing two images of the sun that are 7 days apart from NASA’s SOHO database to observe and measure one sunspot (the same sunspot in different locations on both images). We looked at sunspots because its dark (due to magnetic activity and heat transfer) and easy to identify since there are few spots from a faraway perspective. were able to solve for the time period it takes for the sun to rotate on its axis using the following formulas: θ=sin〖x/(R ')〗 where R’ is the radius of the circle the sunspot orbits, 〖θ=sin〗〖x/R_sun 〗 , where R_sun is the radius
If a person lived on the sun in the center of our solar systems, and then traveled to a neutron star and lived there for one year, when the person went back to the sun he left, hundreds of years would have passed. The reason time stops at the black hole’s event horizon is because there is a complete tear in the fabric of space-time. The tear is caused be the extreme gravitational pull. This is called singularity. Singularity is defined as a point where anything takes an infinite value.
In almost all cases, they are too far away to be seen by a telescope. Two notable methods used to detect exoplanets are the Doppler Method and Transit Method. Doppler Shift Method The doppler shift method works by analysing the doppler effect that occurs when a planet orbits its star. The doppler effect is when a small mass, such as a planet orbits around a larger mass, such as its star, which will cause a shift or wobble as both masses have a gravitational pull towards each other, thus they will both orbit a common central point. It is most effective when looking at larger planets that are orbiting nearer to its star.
This help them to balance, and stay in the orbit. The acting point between planets which stay in an orbit and the sun is the orbit. Also, the calculation of the orbit is that “The orbit is an ellipse with an eccentricity of about 0.017, so the distance to the sun at any given day would be: r = a(1-e*e)/(1+e cos(theta)).” (researchgate.net). There are eight planets in the orbit in total (there is another planet, but it doesn’t count as the planet in the orbit anymore). “The total mass of all eight planets is around 2.67 x 1027 kg.
An illustration showed that the moon would slowly be drifting away from the Earth. The inverse square law states that if the moon was half the distance away then the gravitational effect on our tides would be quadrupled or if the moon was 1/3 the distance then the gravitational effect would be 9 times stronger causing us to drown at least twice a day. If the Earth existed more than a billion of years then the Moon should have been inside or touching the Earth. If Humans were a result of evolving there should be at least remains of fossils of our ancestors who were in a different form. For over 2 centuries of digging beneath the Earth no previous ancestor remains have been found.
It was launched and did two full revolutions of the moon. Many pictures were gathered and many are used for entertainment and study now. On May 24, the astronauts started descending back to Earth, and 2 days later on May 26, they returned. The Apollo 11 mission was the first manned mission to actually land onto the moon. The famous Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were on the spacecraft and were the first humans to ever step foot onto a planet other than Earth.
Because of the planet’s extreme temperatures, the atoms quickly disappear into space. Meteorites don’t burn up like they do on planets with atmospheres. The temperature differences on Mercury are immense. The surface can reach up to 430 degrees Celsius (800 degrees Fahrenheit). Since the planet has no atmosphere to retain the heat, temperatures at nighttime can drop up to -170 degrees Celsius (-280 degrees Fahrenheit).
16 The capture theory states that the moon originated separately in the Milky Way and was later caught in Earth 's gravitational field. It is illogical to assume this because scientists have already proven that the moon 's composition is identical to Earth 's, which strongly supports the Sister Theory. The capture theory is less substantial because if the moon was once free floating through space before being captured by Earths gravity, then it stands to reason that the moon could break free at any point and continue to wander space. As current research supports the moon highly effects the tides of Earths oceans and the moon 's disappearance would be detrimental; considering this outcome, by default the Sister Theory is deemed stronger than the capture theory. Additionally, if the moon was once wandering aimlessly through space, why is it that other large lunar and planetary bodies have not been found acting in the same way throughout human history?
The rocks could have been pieces of meteorites! Have you even seen the picture of the American flag blowing on the moon? How does a flag blow without wind/air? Because all of the moon landings were filmed in a fake moon environment! I mean, think about it, a flag can 't blow without wind.
The Circinus Galaxy (ESO 97-G13) is a Seyfert galaxy in the Circinus constellation - and one of the closest to the Milky Way (see also NGC 185). It is only 4 degrees below the Galactic plane, and 13 million light-yearsaway. The galaxy is undergoing tumultuous changes, as rings of gas are being ejected from the galaxy. The outermost ring is 700 light-years from the center of the galaxy and the inner ring is 130 light-years out. Although the Circinus galaxy can be seen using a small telescope, it was not noticed until 1977 because it lies close to the plane of the Milky Way and is obscured by galactic dust.
