Earth and Mars also both have a lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere. This means that the environment on Mars has air, water and ice systems which affect the geology of Mars just like they affect the geology on Earth. There has always been a debate as to whether or not there could be life on Mars. This may be one reason as to why Mars and its geology has been a target of scientific exploration and research for hundreds of years. Mars is the fourth planet from the sun formed approximately 4.5 billion years ago.
This finding of the impact crater is very important because that implies the rocks at the rim of crater provide give scientists more information about the origin of the moon, the moon in the ancient time. Comparing the number of impact craters on the Earth to the Moon and other terrestrial worlds, we could say that it is very rare. There are many reasons that could explain why other planets will be more impact craters than the Earth, for example, Earth’s atmosphere, geological activity, and human activities could be responsible to the phenomenon of lost impact craters on the Earth. First, the Earth’s atmosphere, a lot of smaller meteorite or comet cannot get through Earth’s atmosphere. They burn up after entering the Earth’s atmosphere, thus a lot of them did not make
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.
Tides are daily movements of ocean water that change the level of the ocean's surface.The tides are caused by the exertion of gravitational forces by the moon and sun, and the rotation of the Earth. The relationship between the phases of the moon and the tides was first discovered more than 2,000 years ago by Pytheas, a Greek explorer. However, Pytheas could not explain the reasons behind the relationship. It was not until Sir Isaac Newton published his theories on gravitational pull in 1687 that the relationship between the moon and tides were fully understood. Gravitational forces from both the sun and moon continuously pull on the Earth.
(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.
Three of the four inner planets (Venus, Earth, and Mars) have atmospheres substantial enough to generate weather. All of the inner planets have impact craters and tectonic surface features such as rift valleys and volcanoes. The first of the inner planets, and closest planet to the Sun, is Mercury. It is the smallest planet in the Solar System and has no natural satellites. Its only known geological features are impact craters and lobed ridges or rupes (steep slopes or cliffs), probably produced
Is there a lot of economic benefit from going to the moon? NASA has discovered a lot of water on the moon. In 2009 NASA crashed a rocket into the moon. NASA says they have detected 100 kg of water. This led many people to suggest that water should be extracted from the moon since we are running out of fresh water here on earth.
His name is one of only 72 names inscribed on the Eiffel Tower. Shortly after the discovery of Neptune, Le Verrier was convinced that there still might be another planet further out in our Solar System. It turned out to be a large moon of Neptune, named Triton. With this discovery, more accurate and detailed data could be obtained about Neptune, such as Neptune’s mass and orbital path. A British astronomer, William Lassell, is actually credited with the discovery of Triton.
The Skylab Space Station was launched May 14, 1973, from the NASA Kennedy Space Center by the colossal Saturn V launch vehicle (the moon rocket of the Apollo Space Program). Sixty-three seconds after liftoff of the Space Station, the shield designed to protect it from meteoroids also to shade Skylab's workshop—moved without any intent. The shield was torn from the space station because of atmospheric drag. This event led to a ten-day period where Skylab has many problems that had to be taken care of before the space station would be safe for future missions. The Skylab Space Station was launched into orbit on May 14, 1973 as part of the Apollo program.
This research paper will refute evidences made by this event. Such evidences discussed are the waving of the United States of America National Flag, The Van Allen Radiation Belt, the viewing of the stars. Introduction The moon is the name given to the natural satellite of the Earth. Its diameter is about 3480km, which is about one-fourth of the earth. The moon’s volume is about one-fiftieth that of
