People within an outer ten mile radius would suffer from second degree burns due to the amount of radiation, also leading to many fatalities. A megaton bomb dropped directly upon Pittsburg would not have a major impact on my current location. It would, however, eliminate Pittsburg and the south western corner of Pennsylvania; parts of Ohio and Maryland. All bombs would have an effect on post-weather because of the amount of disturbed and contaminated debris affected by the explosion. Some scientists agree
He built his own telescopes and was the first to use to view the heavens in 1610. After doing so, he made many discoveries. He saw that Jupiter has moon orbiting around it, like the Earth. He made the discoveries of the four moons on January 7, 1610 and they are now called the Galilean moons. These are the largest of Jupiters moons.
Modernity may cease with global warming as half the biggest companies are oil companies, and oil is the essence of life. Deforestation and the effects of global warming on our forests and trees are far-reaching and quite evident. All our planets physical features are changing rapidly. And McKibben repeats himself on purpose to get his point across: the planet we knew is no more, we live on a new, more complex and harsher
It was a "J-type mission", missions including three-day lunar surface stays, extended scientific capability, and the third Lunar Roving Vehicle. While Evans remained in lunar orbit above in the Command/Service Module, Cernan and Schmitt spent just over three days on the lunar surface in the Taurus-Littrow valley, conducting three periods of extra-vehicular activity, or moonwalks, during which they collected lunar samples and deployed scientific instruments. Cernan, Evans, and Schmitt returned to Earth on December 19 after an
Name: Date: Semester Lab: Lost in Space – Checkpoint #2 Worksheet Scientists find an unknown sample in a NASA lab that has been misplaced. They want to identify the sample, place it back into the NASA collection, and match it with the correct mission. Day 1 A) Space Missions Clue: Scientists believe the unknown sample was collected from one of the past space missions below. They want you to research these NASA missions to discover the objectives each mission. (5 points) Note: Go to http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/missions/ and check the planet missions that you want to research.
Assignment 3: Environmental Issues and the Industrial Revolution * Identify three of the most environmentally negative impacts of the Industrial Revolution and justify your choices. Air Pollution: According to the reading Hiwarale, 2015, said, “The pollution that has resulted from factories involves not only airborne emissions but land and water pollution as well. The primary issue resulting from pollution and carbon emissions is that of global warming. As the temperature rises, the glaciers are melting and oceans are rising. More animal species are becoming endangered or extinct as a result of global warming.” “The carbon emissions, pollution and human health problems that have resulted directly from the Industrial Revolution’s accomplishments have only been disastrous for the world environment.
The government has spent 10 billion dollars on the Yucca Mountain project already so it would be a waste to not use it, don’t we want our tax dollars to be well spent? We should use Yucca Mountain to dispose of our nuclear waste. If we do not dispose of the waste soon then perhaps, a leak could occur in a nuclear waste container and it would do damage to our country. We would not want that. With the design of the steel barriers that would contain the repository, which is similar to a big steel box, the site would be good for thousands of years to come.
The most popular of these theories are pointing towards climate change. The idea that aliens invaded the earth and were the cause of the demise of the Maya is an interesting theory. Many believe this theory simply because of their advanced knowledge and interest in astronomy. Their understanding of the repetitive cycles of the moon and planets so to chart their place in the sky on future dates makes you think. The tracking of Venus and a sophisticated number system with a base of 20 are two other areas that the Maya focused on that creates interest to rationalize what their purpose could possibly be?
Coal, natural gas, and oil are burned for energy in many ways such as cars and power plants. Forest burning for deforestation also causes C02 emissions. C02 emissions are harmful to the planet and cause the planet to heat up. Global warming causes worse weather conditions in the world amongst other issues. With so many issues that can arise with a hotter Earth, I believe this to be a major issue that needs to be addressed.
Explorer 1 had an orbital life cycle of about twelve years, and mission duration of four months. Upon re-entry to earth in 1970, it had completed an astounding 58,000 orbits around the Earth. At the same time as the Vanguard rockets (the satellites proceeding Explorer 1), President Eisenhower and the rest of his cabinet were trying to decide under which agency this new “space” issue fell under the jurisdiction of, to which they found no answer. President Eisenhower instated the National Aeronautics and Space Act which was the creation of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration or more commonly known as NASA. NASA would go on to become the most influential organisation in the world in relation to anything space related.
