Science studies how everything works from the smallest (quarks) to the largest (Galactic clusters and possibly even bigger) But astronomy is just the science or study of how everything interacts in the universe. Astronomy studies how planets interact with stars and how stars interact in galaxies with their local group, then how local groups form clusters and how they interact with each other d. Who was Aristotle and what was his relationship to the science of
Craters || || Overview · Evaluate parameters affecting crater formation. · Find the size of the asteroid/comet that killed the dinosaurs. · Understand how you can make your own series of craters, to observe the "geological" results. · Look at and evaluate images of craters on other planets/celestial bodies. Pre-lab Questions Answer these questions: 1.
His observations of planetary motion, mostly that of Mars, gave important data for astronomers to come, like Kepler. This helped us construct our model of the solar system we use today. The calculation that if the Earth moves then the stars are at least 700

Science Physics Core science questions and answers- Topic 1- The solar system- 1. What is a geocentric model? It is a model with the earth at the centre. 2. Describe two differences between ptolemy’s and Copernicus’s models- What is at the centre of the model and the way in which the planets followed smaller circles in their orbits in ptolemy’s model.
The myth busters put this it the test buy building a model of the moon’s surface and used shifted the topography so that it showed to perpendicular shadows from the same light source. The second photo was a picture of one of the astronauts climbing the ladder to the space module. In the photo the astronaut is in the shadow of the space module but it appears that the astronaut is well lit in the
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.
Both briefly touched on the discovery and then focused on more on the American astrologists that confirmed the findings and found some planets of their own. These articles mostly started my look into the subject and will give some brief information, but I also find others that dive more into the topic. By using articles by Walker, Burrows, and Lunine, I will examine the initial reaction of the scientific community in 1995 to this discovery and discuss some of the more technical aspects of 51 Pegasi B. I find it quite interesting how a planet can still exist so close to a sun and with surface temperatures exceeding 1,000 degrees Kelvin. This extreme survivability of 51 Pegasi B was thought to not be possible until its discovery, and now has astronomers rethinking the bases of their planetary understanding. The origin of 51 Pegasi B is also an extremely interesting story, as it is hard to believe that a planet could form so close to a star.
