o B. Discover images and characteristics related to the Barringer Crater in Arizona: How large was the meteorite, how large is the crater, when did the impact occur, and how fast was the meteorite moving when it hit Earth’s surface. o C. Find at least three large craters on Earth that illustrate the potential magnitude of kinetic energy that is possible at impact. List where the location of the impact, the size of the meteorite, and when the impact occurred. Introduction One look at the surface of the Moon should convince you that "empty space" is not so empty after all.
The impact of the bomb would leave a crater between 370 ft and 600 ft long and winds up to 180 MPH. A mushroom cloud would expand nearly 16 miles into the sky. A flash lasting approximately twenty-two seconds brightens the horizon fifty miles away. After the initial explosion, radiation would linger through the air for weeks. People within an outer ten mile radius would suffer from second degree burns due to the amount of radiation, also leading to many fatalities.
When looking at how planets were classified at the time of Pluto’s discovery technology was much different. The criterion then and now, for the most part, relies on classifying an object as a planet as long as: it orbits around the sun, is massive enough to create its own gravitational shape and force, and must have cleared the neighboring area around its orbit. However, going by these guide lines Pluto does not meet the requirements. For this and other reasons I feel that Pluto should no longer be classified as a planet. There are many issues to consider either way you classify Pluto.
Electromagnetic Radiation: Radiation consisting of oscillating electric and magnetic fields, namely gamma rays, X-rays, visible light, ultraviolet and infrared radiation and radio waves. Interstellar Medium: Interstellar gas and dust. Julian date: A Julian date or day number is the number of elapsed days since the beginning of a cycle of 7,980 years invented by Joseph Scaliger in 1583. Magnetic Field: A region of space near a magnetized body within which magnetic forces can be detected. Neutron Star: A very compact, dense stellar remnant composed almost entirely of neutrons.
Survival. Achieving this can bring out the worst in people. When the world turns around like it did for Miranda, life would never be the same. An unpredicted disaster has taken a toll on the world. A meteor struck the moon and moved it closer into orbit changing centrifugal forces and causing worldwide tidal waves, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and that’s just the start.
NOVA: Volcanoes Volcanoes are landforms where molten rock erupts through the surface of the planet. Think of them as pimples on the face of the earth. Today, there are over 1,500 active volcanoes on earth’s surface. Volcanoes cause serious hazards to not only people, but the environment and the nature around us as well. If an eruption were to occur, a number of life-changing things would happen.
The flat earth theory describes the earth as being a floating disk with another disk above us that contains stars, planets, and the moon and is constantly rotating. It describes the disk with stars to be “not super far” unlike the round earth theory that makes stars like polar several light years away Round Earth model Flat Earth Model Our experiment consists of measuring the angle of Polaris and the horizon line in different places in Utah with a sextant. We then graphed the information to find the relationship to the equations that each theory has. My hypothesis is that the round earth theory will have an inverse and linear relationship and the flat earth theory will have an inverse and non-linear relationship. We can see this to disprove the flat earth theory.
Pluto, now, is known as a dwarf planet. A dwarf planet is a celestial body that orbits the Sun and is also large enough to become round due to the force of its own gravity. Although it does have these assets, it cannot dominate the neighborhood around its orbit, such that Pluto’s moon, Charon, is about half the size of Pluto itself. A planet that dominates their neighborhood is able to scoop up asteroids, comets and other debris, which allows the planets elliptical path to be cleared along their orbits. Besides Charon, Pluto has four other moons: Nix, Hydra, Kerberos and Styx.
Part 1: Procedures in the Physical Sciences: Challenges in Measurements 1. Identify three (3) specific challenges to making direct measurements in the fields of astronomy, chemistry, physics, or earth science. Describe how scientists have utilized indirect forms of measure to overcome these challenges. Three specific challenges in making direct measurements in the field of Astronomy are calculating distances of stars, weight and its components. The reason why calculating stars distance is difficult because the earth’s revolution around the sun stars shifts their position.
