  • The Solar System: The Origin Of The Solar System

    questions in astronomy today is the how our solar system formed? Not only does the answer adds an insight to other similarly forming systems, but also satisfies our curiosity about the origin of our species. It is extremely unlikely that astronomers will ever know with absolute scientific clarity how our system originated, they can however construct similar theoretical models with faiths of gaining a better understanding. With that being said a simple understanding of the current physical characteristics of our solar system would help analyze its origin. Our solar system the place we all call home, lies about 26,000 light years from the sun, the center of our galaxy (The Milky Way). The story of how planets came…

  • Research Paper On Solar System

    The Solar System By Krishiv There is always something that you are pondering about. From the periodic table to the circulatory system. But did you know that the majority of people wonder about the Solar System? It is the final frontier, or the one thing that is not fully discovered. There are many unique masses in the Solar System. They range from planets like the earth to rocks such as asteroids, comets, and meteors. But one thing is for certain… every mass has to orbit the sun. …

  • Planets And Moons Within The Solar System

    Planets and moons within the solar system are different in terms of composition, geologic activity, interior structure, magnetic field, and atmospheres. We can deduce each of these properties through routine astronomical observations, spectroscopic/remote observations, laws of physics, solar system modeling as well as direct sampling. Given that many economists and government officials object to using our resources to visit other objects physically, by studying our solar system we will continue…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Our Solar System

    In our solar system, there are the nine planets. They are Mercury, Venus, earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. These planets was formed when clouds of gas and dust collapsed with gravity in space. Earth is the third planet from the sun. Throughout the solar system, Earth is the unique place where life can exist. This planet contains atmosphere with oxygen, with lands and oceans on its surface. The ocean covers roughly 70 percent of the Earth's surface and besides that 30…

  • Solar Energy System Advantages And Disadvantages

    The word “photovoltaic” combines two terms – “photo” means light and “voltaic” means voltage. A photovoltaic system in this discussion uses photovoltaic cells to directly convert sunlight into electricity. A photovoltaic (PV), or solar electric system, is made up of several photovoltaic solar cells. An individual PV cell is usually small, typically producing about 1 or 2 watts of power. To boost the power output of PV cells, they are connected together to form larger units called modules.…

  • Solar Systems: How Do Solar Thermals Work?

    Solar thermals are one of the more common solar systems; however, they are often referred based on their service rather than the name solar thermal itself. Solar thermals comes in many different variation; from focusing light, acting like a furnace, to application of a heating water, acting like a water heater; solar thermals are everywhere in everyday life (Kalogirou, 2004, p 238). While they are not commonly recognize as photovoltaic, they are widely used in many of its different form. How do…

  • Difference Between Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Systems In Buildings

    film solar cells. 5.1.2 Photovoltaic (PV) solar systems in Buildings: The PV solar cells combined together to make solar panels. These panels alone cannot light up the entire building with electricity. Additionally other components are also required to complete the whole complex process of conversion of solar energy into usable electric energy. The other components used in this process help in transmission and storage of the energy when required. This entire component system can be designed in…

  • Evolution Of The Solar System

    of the human body would require dramatic changes in the solar system. The current physical laws of this planetary system do not allow further evolution of the human physiology. Of the one hundred and fourteen chakras in the body, two are outside the physiological framework. If out of the remaining one hundred and twelve, you manage to activate one hundred and eight, the other four will naturally open up. Actual work needs to be done on one hundred and eight chakras. That is why traditionally,…

  • Analysis: The Hunt For Planet X

    The Hunt for Planet X Ever since the proposition of a ninth planet within our solar system by Scott Sheppard and Chadwick Trujillo in 2014 (Hunt 1) the hunt has been on for the elusive object. The use of extreme Kuiper Belt objects (eKBOs) which are objects believed to not be significantly influenced by Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune, contributed to the idea of another object in the solar system influencing them (Malhotra 1). The study of the eKBOs orbit around our sun lead to the…
