It is also one of the farthest planets from our solar system, which causes it to take 4 hours for the sunlight to reach Neptune. Surprisingly, the sunlight we have here on Earth is 900 times brighter on Neptune! Since, Neptune is the windiest planet in our solar system it contains supersonic winds, winds that are 1.5 times faster than the speed of sound. The planet is at least -300 fahrenheit and the hottest it can get is 18 degrees fahrenheit. Neptune has a radius of 15,299.4 miles, it is also four times
1. The relationship between Mercury’s rotational period and orbital period is a resonance. This results from the Sun’s tidal force on Mercury and its very elliptical orbit. The sun cannot lock Mercury into a 1:1 rotation due to Mercury’s high eccentricity. Mercury takes 59 Earth days to rotate and and 88 days to orbit so it spins three times for every two orbital periods.
Calcium is a soft gray alkaline earth metal, it is the fifth-most-abundant element by mass in the Earth 's crust. The element calcium ion is also the fifth-most-abundant dissolved ion in seawater. Free calcium metal is too reactive to occur in nature or it is natural. Calcium is produced in supernova nucleosynthesis. Supernova nucleosynthesis is the theory of the production of many different chemical elements in Supernova explosions.
Mercury is the closest planet to the sun, which makes it the most difficult planet for scientists to study. If you could stand on mercury, the sun would look three times bigger than on earth. Mercury can get as close as 47 kilometers to the sun. A big difference between Mercury and all the other planets is the size of its iron core. Mercury’s iron core makes up about 65 percent of its total mass.
A black hole is nothing but empty space that has a gravitational force that nothing can get past it, not even light. It is almost like a massive, vigorous vacuum making it the second to largest black hole astronomers have ever seen. Two million years ago, the black hole was 100 times more powerful than it is today. Scientist are confused why the black hole is weakening because it's suppose to be the opposite. Sagittarius A is about 26,000 light years away from Earth and it is 100 more massive than the
hydrogen bomb or H-bomb, weapon inferring an extensive bit of its vitality from the atomic combination of hydrogen isotopes. In a nuclear bomb, uranium or plutonium is part into lighter components that together weigh not exactly the first iotas, the rest of the mass showing up as vitality. Not at all like this splitting bomb, the hydrogen bomb capacities by the combination, or joining together, of lighter components into heavier components. The deciding item again weighs not as much as its parts, the distinction afresh showing up as vitality. Since to a great degree high temperatures are required with a specific end goal to start combination responses, the hydrogen bomb is otherwise called an atomic bomb.
Uranus and Neptune are distinctly bluer than Jupiter and Saturn because of the levels of Methane in the planets ' atmospheres. This allows their respective atmoshperes to absorb light in the red part of the spectrum, and reflects light back in the blue part of the spectrum. They also appear bluer because they are made up of mostly hydrogen and helium, which is a stark contrast to that of Jupiter and Saturn. Compared to Jupiter and Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are both much smaller, less massive, and denser.
The Hindenburg was the fastest airship of its time, and was also the first airship across the Atlantic Ocean. The 242 ton airship was made in Nazi Germany. This disaster was the first disaster caught on camera. The Hindenburg was going to land at Lakehurst, New Jersey when out of nowhere it suddenly caught on fire. This disaster happened early in the morning around 8:00 but you wouldn’t have been able to tell because of how thick the smoke was.
Light as Deception Believe it or not, the sun’s diameter is approximately 864, 575.9 miles making it 400 times larger than the moon! Nonetheless, the two celestial bodies both appear the same size from earth because the sun is 400 times farther away than the moon. Fitzgerald is genius in his illustration of the sun in The Great Gatsby set in the Gilded Age, cleverly adding a new understanding to the novel as a whole. Realist author Mark Twain figuratively referred to this age (in the late 19th century to early 20th century) as an age that appeared golden and extravagant on surface but was dull and corrupt on the inside. The rivalry amongst mega corporations where the wealth accumulated in the hands of the few, bashed the poor into heavy poverty in the Valley of Ashes.
The M1A1/2’s gas turbine engine makes up for its monstrous fuel consumption with it being able to burn kerosene, diesel, or even jet fuel. The gas turbine engine also possesses an unmatched acceleration speed compared to similar diesel engines. Although it can overcome that downside of fuel consumption, it cannot overcome the biggest threat in modern times, infrared guided munitions (Meyers). The gas turbine engine produces large amounts of heat, four times more than that of a similar diesel engine. This makes the Abrams stick out like a sore thumb among any other vehicle.
