The Solar System
The Solar System Assignment 1: The Solar System The solar system consists of the Sun; the nine planets, 67 satellites of the planets and a large number of small bodies (comets and asteroids). The inner solar system contains the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars: The planets of the outer solar system are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto: The orbits of the planets are ellipses with the Sun at one focus, though all except Mercury and Pluto are very nearly circular. The orbits of the pla...

Human Vision In Space
Human Vision In Space Human visual hardware is a result of a billion years of evolution within the earths atmosphere where light is scattered by molecules of air, moisture, particular matter etc. However as we ascend into our atmosphere with decrease density, light distribution is changed resulting in our visual hardware receiving visual data in different format. Some Aspects to Consider: 1. Visual acuity is the degree to which the details and contours of objects are perceived. Visual acuity is ...

The Greenhouse Effect
The Greenhouse Effect The Greenhouse Effect Issue Statement While some people believe the earth's climatic changes are due to the fact that the universe is getting older, others believe it is due to the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is a naturally occuring phenomenon that is responsible for trapping heat near the earth's surface and keeping the planet warm. It is called the greenhouse effect because the way it works is similar to the way in which a green house functions. In a greenhou...

Love And Lust In Paradise Lost
Love And Lust In Paradise Lost Love and Lust In Paradise Lost In Milton's Paradise Lost, sexuality is an innate part of human nature. Milton celebrates Adam and Eve's prelapsarian connubial love (PL, IV, 743), singing Hail wedded Love (PL, IV, 750). In its proper place in the hierarchy (below God), sex in Milton's view is sacred and spiritual, sanctioned by God. Sacred sex is portrayed almost as an intellectual act rather than a physical act, as a union of souls rather than a union of bodies. In...

The Solar System
The Solar System The Solar System consists of the Sun, the nine planets and their satellites; the comets, asteroids, meteoroids, and interplanetary dust and gas. It is composed of two systems, the inner solar system and the outer solar system. The inner solar system contains the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. The outer solar system contains Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The inner planets are relatively small and made primarily of rock and iron. The asteroids orbit the sun in ...

Pendiulm Effects
Pendiulm Effects Laboratory topic # 10 In this experiment we will observe the properties of a pendulum moving in a circular motion rather than the traditional ?back and forth? motion. This will simulate the direction that a satellite would follow above the earths atmosphere. The purpose of this experminate will be to show how gravity pulls on the string and the path that the pendulum follows. Apparatus used: 1. Pendulum with long string 4. Digital stop watch 2. pendulum clamp 5. two-meter stick ...

The Principle Events In The Evolution Of The Earths Atmosphere
The Principle Events In The Evolution Of The Earth's Atmosphere The Principle Events in the Evolution of the Earth's Atmosphere The literal translation of the word atmosphere is sphere of vapors. The Earth's atmosphere is a protective sphere of vapors, or air that surrounds the Earth and provides it with a layer of insulation from the harmful rays of the sun. It is a vital part of the Earth, and has changed dramatically since the beginning of time. The earth's atmosphere has gradually changed si...

Mass Sixth Extinction and How it is Unnatural
Mass Sixth Extinction and How it is Unnatural After roughly 3.5 billion years of evolution, a vanishing of it all is rapidly approaching. The Earth has seen such a calamitous mass extinction events before. In the last approximate 540 million years; the Earth has seen five major mass extinctions. These occurrences are so extraordinary that they are known as the Big Five. However, this period, the Holocene Era, may soon be known as the Earth's sixth mass extinction. The Holocene extinction is...

The Enviromnetal Degradation As A Result Of Overpopulation
The Enviromnetal Degradation as a Result of Overpopulation 1 Introduction There are simply too many people on our planet, and the population is not showing any signs of slowing down(see Figure 1). It is having disastrous effects on our environment. There are too many implications and interrelationships to discuss in this paper, but the three substances that our earth consists of: land, water and air, are being destroyed. Our forests are being cut down at an alarming rate, bearing enormous impact...

Deforestations Impact
Deforestation's Impact PSC 391 May 1, 2000 Deforestation is the permanent destruction of indigenous forests and woodlands.(WWF) Currently, forests cover approximately one fifth of the world's land. Forests provide us with many products we use in our everyday lives. They also provide for us in other ways such from helping stop soil erosion to providing us with medical drugs, dyes and fabrics.. Humanity depends on the survival of a healthy ecosystem and deforestation is causing many social, econom...
