  • Jovian Planet Research Paper

    The core’s are about 10 times the size of Earth’s consisting of metals, rock, and hydrogen compounds. Jupiter, on the other hand is made almost entirely of hydrogen and helium 4. Because of its large size, Jupiter loses heat very slowly. The planet is still slowly contracting. Contraction converts gravitational energy into thermal energy. Neptune also uses contraction as a way of generating internal heat. Saturn, on the other hand, has liquid helium raining into its interior and it has a less extreme core temperature than Jupiter. 6. Different types of clouds reflect different types of light. Jupiter 's clouds reflect brown and red light. Saturn 's…

  • Angular Momentum

    lasting cyclone can appear at the pole. After this study was conducted, scientists realized there are only two main components that create these polar cyclones, and that not all planets will get them (such as Earth). Like mentioned earlier the size of the thunderstorm and the energy inside the planet’s atmosphere is what leads to these polar cyclones forming (Kluger 2016). Saturn has very large thunderstorm’s for it’s size, unlike Earth or Mars. However, we do not know about all the other…

  • History Of Space Exploration

    aspect that this probe had to be given a provision for a second launch in Jupiter and how it would interact with Jupiter’s gravitational pull. Modern systems are first simulated using computerized Software and their reactions studied when subjected to various dynamics. However, for the case of Voyager 1 during the time of its launch, the computer technology was dismal. Consequently, everything had to rely on human and engineering tests and accuracy (Brumfiel, 2011). Elements had to be tested…

  • Jupiter And Thetis Analysis

    One painting that really caught my eye is the painting Jupiter and Thetis by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (Getlein, 2016). This painting was inspired from Homer’s Iliad, “The Greek epic of the Trojan War (Getlein, 2016).” Without knowing what it really means you can tell more or less what is happening based off of the artists creativity. From first sight, you can see A man sitting in a throne which depicts royalty. There are two women looking at the man in an almost lustful perspective. There…

  • Big Bang Theory Research Paper

    giant planets are planets such as Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Gas Giant planets are created in a much different way in contrast to Terrestrial Planets. The Disk Instability Model theorizes the formation of Gas Planets. According to Nola Taylor Redd “Clumps of dust and gas are bound together early in the life of the solar system. Over time, these clumps slowly compact into a giant planet. These planets can form faster than their core accretion rivals, sometimes in as little as a…

  • Astronomical Bodies In Shakespeare's Plays

    One such example of this is found in Shakespeare’s play Cymbeline, in a scene where the main character is imagining his deceased family members revolving around the Greek god Jupiter. This scene brings to mind the discovery of four of the planet Jupiter’s moons by Galileo in 1610, as the four dead family members symbolize the moons and the god Jupiter stands in for the planet Jupiter. Galileo’s discovery of the the moons is considered to be important in the field of astronomy as it was one of…

  • Mars: The Fourth Planet From The Sun

    of cabin to explain the relative positions of Earth and Gnaritus in the Milky Way. “Ladies and gentlemen, I hope you are settling in and finding everything to your liking,” Pars began, pleased to see them all nodding in agreement. “Today, we have seen Mars and tomorrow evening, Jupiter will be on the horizon. The gas giant Jupiter, whose name comes from the Roman King of Gods, Zeus, is the largest planet in the Solar System, and also formed four and a half billion years ago, similar to…

  • Planets And Moons Within The Solar System

    Through system modeling and experimentation, this lead to the conclusion that the terrestrial planets are made of silicate rock surrounding a iron and nickel core. Jovian planets however, contain densities similar to the density of water with light gases visible on top. Gases and liquids such as hydrogen and helium have densities lower than water. The Jovian planets are made of gaseous and liquid hydrogen, helium and water surrounding a roughly small rocky core. An atmosphere is “layer of gases…

  • Analysis Of Galileo Galilei's 'The Sidereal Messenger'

    in the Pleiades and Orion constellations. Prior to Galilei’s observation, it was thought that the nebulae contained several single stars; however, he found that these masses are composed of groups of individuals stars. Galilei includes an illustration of his observation and describes, “The second figure contains the nebula Praesepe, which is not a single star but a mass of more than forty little stars” (65). His observations show how there are thousands of stars that cannot be seen with the…

  • Essay On Voyager 1

    findings. One such ongoing effort is the Voyager Program. Two space probes, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, were launched in the late 1970s to collect data about our solar system. Voyager 2 was launched from the Kennedy Space Center on August 20, 1977. Voyager 1 was also launched from the Kennedy Space Center 15 days after Voyager 2 on September 5, 1977. The reason for the seemingly backwards numbering is that they weren’t labeled based on launch date but rather by which probe would first make it to…
