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.
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
Telescopes also indicated mountains and craters on the moon. Future telescopes have discovered geography and weather on the planets in our solar system. Telescopes have also exposed new planets and asteroids. These devices helped us make the first legitimate measurement of the speed of light. Telescopes have also assisted us to comprehend gravity and other vital laws of the physical world.

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. 3. Describe two similarities between the two models- The number of planets and the circular orbits are the same. 4. Suggest one way in which our current model of the solar system is different from Copernicus’s- There are more planets because we have more scientific equipment to look out further into space so we discover new things in space.
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.
Henri Oung Date due: April 28th, 2009 Knowledge and Conspiracy Theories Date submitted: April 28th, 2009 Term paper: Moon-landing Word count: 1110 We always strive to achieve something. That achievement might be a dream or something even bigger. One of the dreams that Americans have is to actually get off the planet earth and see the outer universe. But one of the first things they wanted to accomplish is to actually land on the moon. It was first succeeded by the soviets in 1966, but the Americans did try to land a few years before that, but failed.
The Soviet Union dominated much of the early aspects of the space race. However, the United Stated used a methodical building approach that was achieved due to the earlier stages of the space race, Project Gemini and Mercury achievements, and the manned mission to the moon. The Space Race was a milestone in human history, its beginning will always be remembered as a race between two battling super powers of the time. Astronaut Neil Armstrong fulfilled as dream as old as humanity as he took the first human steps onto a planetary body, “That's one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind."
