(“New Horizons”) This spacecraft took photos of Pluto’s surface. The photos showed me that Pluto is a medium-sized piece of icy rock. But then scientists have discovered something while looking at the new photos of Pluto. Something that was unbelievably unimaginable. The discovery was Pluto’s surfaces were new.
He claimS that he doubts the images are real, stating that there is no authenticity to the mission at all. According to Newsweek, he claims that people do not think about what the real truth is as they choose the best answer given to them and take it as reality. New Horizons took the closest images of Pluto on July 14, 2015, at a 7,750 miles range from the surface. Even though there are doubts about the credibility of the images, NASA is already revealing new images and data from Pluto. According to Natural World News, NASA experts claim that the dwarf planet is more mysterious than anyone thought.
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?
Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, named, respectively, fear and panic, after the sons of Ares and Aphrodite. They are both small, irregularly shaped rocky bodies. Phobos is larger by several kilometers and also has larger craters, some stretching as far as 28 kilometers long and nearly as wide. However, Deimos is also home to very large craters. They have very low densities, which suggests that these moons were 'captured ' asteroids and did not form with their mother planet.
The rings were first observed by the Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei in 1610 with the help of early less powerful telescope. His telescope wasn 't that good (low resolution) as compare to today’s telescope, though, he able to observe "blobs" on both side of Saturn, which he thought were moons of Saturn. Later in 1656 a Dutch astronomer Christiaan Huygens able to correctly identified the "blobs" as rings around Saturn. They have allured and perplexed astronomers since they were discovered 400 years ago. Many mathematicians have study the distribution of particles of ice and rock throughout the rings and believe that they are attributes of catastrophic collisions over time.
Another cause for it was that the Morton Thiokol had overruled their own engineers. If they had listened to their engineers and had waited to launch Challenger until the weather had warmed up, the explosion would have never happened. An effect from the explosion, was that NASA was required to come up with a new design for their shuttles, hoping to eliminate the chances of having another disaster like the Challenger. The Challenger Space Shuttle explosion was one of the worst disasters ever in manned spaceflight. It was the first in which American astronauts had lost their lives.
Usually, we see the sun as this bright, flaming star that none of us would dare go near. Why should we? The burning blob of hydrogen, magnesium and other things does its job and it does it very well. It heats our planet, giving us the chance to live and provides us with all kinds of wonderful vitamin D. According to new images that were taken by NASA, the Sun has a few more tricks up its sleeve, or should I say...aliens. MARTIAN SUN DOOR FOUND ON OUR BELOVED STAR A photo taken by NASA 'S SOHO satellite has martian researchers freaking out.
“This is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” - Neil Armstrong, Apollo 11 July 20th, 1969. Apollo 11 landed on uninhabited land. Over 200,000 miles away humans walked on the moon after many attempts and failures. Sure, the United States won the overall Space Race that it had going with the USSR. But how close was the USSR to succeeding?
Aristarchus with the help of others, mathematicians, proposed that the sun was motionless in the center of large fixed stars, and that earth revolved around it. However, little is known about the rest of his existence, since most of his work was burnt down in a great fire that destroyed the Alexandria. All in all, Aristarchus of Samos was a great mathematician and astronomer whose studies only served to contribute to the studies that astronomers later on made. He did not get much credit in his times because they thought his was insane, and preferred not to believe him. Although, he is a major contributor to the studies that help people in present day to study and understand what astronomy looked back
This event is simular to the Ordovican extinction event because it took place over a very long period of time tens of millions of years .their are many therois about what happened doing this event however many believe that their was a huge loss in the planets carbon dioxide which caused a major chemical reaction. The second is that plants stole carbon from the atmosphere to create their own artificile carbon. The lack of carbon in the atmosphere is extremity dangerous because it could affect the climate of the planet. Carbon helps trap heat because of the green house gas affect. With out Carbon Dioxide their would be a globe cooling.
It is about 1,550 kilometers (960 miles) in diameter. It was formed by the impact of a large meteorite in the formation of the solar system. The Caloris Basin has been found to be a significant source of sodium and potassium. Instead of an atmosphere, Mercury has a thin exosphere made up of atoms and micrometeoroids. Because of the planet’s extreme temperatures, the atoms quickly disappear into space.
The surface of Mercury really isn 't much to look at. It 's a rather dull grey in color, and is quite cratered. Along with the craters and dull color, there are boulders on Mercury. These boulders are most likely remnants of the celestial bodies that created the craters that grace the surface of this planet. Finally, there is pulverized dust on the surface of Mercury.
(By solarsystem.nasa.gov) Venus is a very unknow planet because it hard to get on and explorer do to its toxic air and extreme temperatures and closes planet in mass to earth.The rain storms on Venus poor down acid and allot of lighting storm.Since Venus has acid rain Lots of volcanoes and extremely high heat,it is the most dangerous planet in our solar system.The surface of Venus is at 809 degrees fahrenheit.When we sent robots to Venus they did not get far because it was so hot there electrical system overheat.If we ever wanted to live on venus we would probably need to build a station it its atmosphere because it 's cooler up there but would still need a space suit to get from the outside to the inside.Do to the hot heat on Venus there is no water on or in the planet.
Rover landings in 1997 and 2004 gave us the first up close look at Mars’ surface and is the basis for all the skepticism we have about the possibility of life on the Red Planet (NASA.com). Mars’ surface is not exactly the nicest place to live. With low temperatures reaching -143 degrees Celsius at the poles, it can be rough keeping warm; however, the highs can reach up
Instead, these continents make up the "rough" patches of Venus, with canyons, trenches, and mountains. Scientists think that the massive resurfacing, which took place approximately 300 to 500 million years ago, may have "turned off" any plate tectonics on the planet, completely solidifying the crust into a single surface.The thick atmosphere of Venus also serves to shield it from bombardment even today. Only the largest of meteors make it through the clouds without burning up
