The geology of Mars is so immense and intricate. It would take an abundance of time to even come close to describing Mars precisely. It seems odd to me that Mars is so similar to Earth and yet we know so little about it. The only information available to us is due to visits to the planet via space ship and satellites. Also images that we are able to see from the Earth.
The moon's pull is strongest on the part of the Earth directly facing the moon. When that part of the Earth happens to include an ocean, the water there bulges toward the moon. Water on the opposite side of the Earth bulges due to inertia caused by the motion of the Earth and moon around each other. The bulges is called high tides. The figure below shows the position of the moon that causes the water to bulge.
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.
A lot of popular culture follows this, with shows like Myth buster’s evaluating and testing the evidence suggested by the conspiracy theorists. Before any evidence is evaluated, you have to begin to think what motive America would have to want to fake a moon landing, and what would provoke into people believing that it was hoaxed. At the time, The United States and Russia had been in a deep Cold War, both being terrified of nuclear annihilation. There was a speculation that the first country to land on the moon was capable of building a Nuclear Missile Base on the moon, thus starting the space race. There were 4 different motives that people believe why the United States of America would hoax a moon landing.
Saturn’s Moons The planet of Saturn is an amazing planet as far as moons go. This planet is currently known to have fifty-two moons. Some of these moons are spherical in shape much like Earth’s moon and some look to be no more than a meteor that was captured by the huge planet. Now I’m not going to be able to discuss every moon that belongs to Saturn but I will talk about the six biggest which are: Titan, Rhea, Iapetus, Dione, Tethys, and Enceladus. All of Saturn’s moons were named after Greek Mythological figures.
That is why after George W. Bush announced the launch of a program designed to put men back on the moon many people, including astronomers came out against the idea (David). The astronomer Alastair Gunn was among them saying, NASA should focus on mars instead of the moon (Gunn). It is true that modern technology allows us to send robotic missions to the moon but that does not mean that manned missions are no longer productive. One of the most common arguments made against returning to the moon is the economic argument. Is there a lot of economic benefit from going to the moon?
(Politics of Landing, 1) One way scientist tried to find life on Mars was to send the Phoenix Mars Lander mission to Mars. This mission tried to find ice on Mars, by collecting and analyzing soil samples. (Sohn, 1) The Phoenix Lander landed on Mars on May 25, 2008, close to the North Pole, where ice could be found. (Sohn, 1) Phoenix brought along ovens which allowed scientists to analyze the soil by baking it. (Sohn, 2) They could tell the types of ingredients in the soil because all ingredients melt at different temperatures.
When this happens, the moon is in the sky but cannot be seen. The new moon rises and sets with the sun. This is how the moon faces depends on the relative position of the sun, the moon and the earth. A lunar phase or phase of the moon refers to the appearance of the illuminated portion of the Moon as seen by an observer, usually on Earth. The lunar phases vary cyclically as the Moon orbits the Earth, according to the changing relative positions of the Earth, Moon and Sun.
Project Horizon was the plan to establish a military base on the moon, one with minimal personnel required to function. It was designed to launch Atomic missiles onto America’s enemies. The nuclear arms race was omnipresent in the '60s, and Project Horizon made room for its possible expansion to the moon. It pondered the pros and cons -- scientifically, militarily and psychologically -- of detonating a nuclear device on the moon or nearby. Once the danger of this sunk in, project horizon was disbanded America then turned its attention to the development of the Apollo Space Program and its first launch, Apollo 1.
