    Madison Brown Final Examination Astronomy Final The geology of solar terrestrial planets mainly deals with the geological aspects of the four terrestrial planets of the Solar System, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, and one terrestrial dwarf planet, Ceres. Only one terrestrial planet, Earth, is known to have an active hydrosphere. Terrestrial planets are substantially different from the giant planets, which might not have solid surfaces and are composed mostly of some combination of hydrogen, helium

    interesting facts about the planets. They are classified in two different categories, which is either a Terrestrial Planet or a Gas Giant.

This star is more diminutive and cooler than the Sun, of a sort called a M-dwarf or red dwarf, and all it’s referred to planets are little too, with sizes short of what 1.5 times the measure of Earth. The planet Kepler-186f is the most modest, being inside 10%

    There are over a million different planets in our universe. There is not one planet like the other, though some people may argue with this fact. Jupiter, Saturn, are all gas giants, but they also are made up of different gasses. Jupiter is made up of mostly hydrogen, Saturn is made up of hydrogen and helium. I am sure that everyone knows that the rock planets are not alike in many different ways, there is mercury which is very hot, and most likely just a planet of lava. Then there is earth which

    In the early 19th century, scientists all over the world began to study light and colors. In the beginning, not much was known about colors and what caused certain shades to appear. It wasn’t until 1859 when two German scientists created the foundation for the study of spectroscopy and colors (Historical Introduction to Spectroscopy). Robert Wilhelm Bunsen grew a fascination with light when he first observed that certain colors were emitted when chemicals were burned under his flame lamp invention

    anywhere else but on this blue planet, but that should not make the possibility of it any less real. Space, like the future, is always ahead of us, and no one can predict what it has in store for us or what ideas will be found. Outside of the Earth, life in the universe is not such an inane thought as was once believed. Firstly, there are a number of variables that affect the habitable zone of stars. There is also an insurmountable number of possibly habitable planets that could support life. Finally

    up a planet. With used rocks and other metal objects to find their densities and relate it back to planets makeups. Our results show that higher density, the more rock the object is made of. Objective The purpose of this lab is to try and figure out what planets and moons are made of. Depending on the density of the object, you can usually figure out what a planet is made of. We first need to figure out how to use the density formula to be able to apply it to our data. We know that planets are either
