  • Solar Wind Essay

    Solar Winds and the Martian Atmosphere The suns steadily releases charged particles from its upper atmosphere through the Solar System by solar winds. These winds have different effects depending on the properties of the planet. Earth, for example, has a very strong magnetic field as a result of a multitude of factors. Mars on the other hand does not have a strong magnetic field protecting it from the solar winds. It is believed that Ancient Mars had rivers and lakes, however it died billions of years ago after the bombardment of solar winds eventually depleted the atmosphere to create the version of mars that we know of today. Solar wind is a stream of energized particles that flow out of the sun throughout the Solar System. The speed of these winds can fluctuate from anywhere between 10 km/s to 800 km/s depending on where it is and the intensity of the sun’s activities at that point in time. Solar wind is caused by the corona of the Sun spewing plasma up into space. __________________…

  • Solar And Wind Energy

    3. Personal Bias Growing up in the Monterey County, I was always around passionate environmentalists who abided by a simple rule: keep the Earth clean. Being presented to this mindset at a young age sparked my interest and curiosity about the world and its environment. From then on I remembered turning off water and the lights when it was not necessary and unplugging plugs from their outlets when idle. From a young age, I have always agreed with the ideas of using clean energy sources and…

  • Impact Of Wind And Solar Grid

    The Impact of Wind and Solar Variability in Grid Network 1. Introduction The renewable energy development has accelerated over the last decades. Renewable energy can benefit in such a way in various point of view. In an economic perspective, this type of energy has been more economically accepted in the market due to the decline production cost and no requirement of fuel and hence is relatively safe from fluctuated fuel price risk. Moreover, this type of energy can be found in many locations in…

  • The Benefits Of Wind And Solar Energy

    issue has been whether or not we are spending it properly. On the one hand, some people will argue that the government should invest more money expanding oil and gas. While others contend developing wind and solar energy would be the smartest way to go. Mark Lewis argues that oil prices could stay so low that is no longer economic to bring in high cost new oil fields. But even if the oil price does rise, it will not be able to compete with a renewable such as solar and wind. 1. Recent studies…

  • Solar Winds Advantages And Disadvantages

    orbiting, which gives us heat and more stuff. Of course, it is also potentially dangerous, it can cause skin cancer, solar winds, too much heat, and it will obviously end up destroying the earth in a few billion years. I am especially studying the solar winds, this is because I think that solar winds are more interesting than the others because they look as if they were more fun and had more things to talk about. The problem with solar winds is that they come to the earth from the sun and they…

  • Gnaritus 3 Suns

    three suns of this solar system are stars, which contain mainly hydrogen gasses with a lesser amount of helium. Due to the intense force of gravity, the proximity of the hydrogen atoms in the center of these suns results in their nuclei fusing to form helium atoms. This nuclear fusion releases heat and sunlight that reaches Gnaritus and the other planets in this…

  • Aurora Australis Essay

    magnetic and solar disturbances in Earth’s upper atmosphere. The fact that scientists to this day still haven’t completely explained this phenomenon is incredible. These lights are called Aurora. According to an article by N.S. Gill, the Aurora lights “were named by a French scientist Pierre Gassendi, in 1621. They were named Aurora for the goddess of the dawn, according to the Romans . . . (Gill)” When they occur at the North Pole they are called the Aurora Borealis, and at the South Pole…

  • Cosmic Radiation Essay

    mostly experience exposure to the radiation during the flight, the scheduled working period and time interval between separate missions. The risk during the flight are mostly come from the random exposure due to the solar cosmic rays (SCR) or the solar particle events (SPE), galactic cosmic rays (GCR) and trapped radiation. GCR happened outside the solar system and impinge on Earth. The direct of the source, and mechanism of it is unknown. “Because of their high energies up to 1020 eV, they…

  • Aurora Aurealis Research Paper

    They began to learn that aurora’s go along with magnetic 'storms ' and an unsettled magnetosphere (Odenwald). Scientists discovered that the Auroras are made from the flow of the charged particles that were entering the atmosphere. They as well came to the discover that the auroras came and went with the sunspot cycle. By the 20th century, scientists made Aurora’s in their private labs in order to get an understanding of how the auroras work and how they come about. Once television and the…

  • Space Travel Pros And Cons

    negative emotions and having problems with their comrades [3]. Frank and Leo were arguing about something that was resolved months ago. Just imagine what it would be like if we came across a problem that needed to be solved immediately. It is a common misconception that space is empty. It does appear to be a vast vacuum with nothing happening in most of it. Even though we are millions of miles away from the nearest object, there are still particles around. Our spacecraft has been exposed to all…
