Nick_Howes: Why did the HRI images need deconvolution, was a different focusing model used for the MRI and HRI or was it another constraint (CCD ype/exposure length etc) Bill: I have no idea -- you'd have to talk to the EPOXI people on that one. :) Kaloyan: Do you have an explanation for the smooth area in the center of the Hartely 2 comet? The Moon is moving away from the Earth at about 34cm per year. 30. Our automated machines have orbited and landed on Venus and Mars, explored the Sun's environment, observed comets, and asteroids, and made close-range surveys while flying past Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Russell, realized the relationship between a star's temperature (color) and its brightness, and designed a diagram illustrating this relationship in 1911, later called the Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram. Our presence on Earth depends in large part on a history of impacts by interplanetary debris. Around 15,000 tonnes of meteoroids, micrometeoroids and different forms of space dust enter Earth's atmosphere each year.

From this cataclysmic moment over 10,500 years ago, marked by a triple conjunction, ancient Mayans counted the days and years of their calendar. They are chunks of ice (actually a mix of stones, pebbles, dust and different types of ices). They experience friction due to collisions with the atmosphere; by the time they reach 50 to 75 mi (80–120 km) from the earth's surface, they have been heated to incandescence through friction and are visible as "shooting stars," or "falling stars."

Can you please tell me how asteroids are formed and what is the difference between an asteroid and a comet. Cadets of the Space Academy use a scientific and reflective journal to keep their weekly entries and are expected to be in continuous communication with their team during the week. The scale of the solar system is so immense that even inside the asteroid belt the average distance between two asteroids is above one million km - or three times the distance between Earth and the Moon.

Developed by The Space Science Institute’s National Center for Interactive Learning, with funding from the National Science Foundation and NASA, this new exhibition debuted on May 28, 2012. The two main gases are helium and hydrogen. The moon is one of the easiest nightly bodies to see. While the 1908 destruction in Siberia is well known, and repeatedly cited in countless reports about impact hazards, two other, more recent, but similar, impacts that happened in South America in the 1930s continue to be ignored by media as if they never occurred (in order to play down and artificially reduce, in our minds, the chance of another impact)...

Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543) was an amateur Polish astronomer who developed the revolutionary Copernican system, a model of the solar system in which all the planets orbit the sun. Everything was moving horizontally. Section of NASA site with additional pages about comets, too.

The asteroids themselves made it in record time as well. They do not have enough gravity to hold on to the gasses. Of the thousands of known comets in the solar system, Halley's comet is one of some 200 that are periodic. The interactive transcript could not be loaded. There are three major subgroups of stony meteorites, Chondrites, Carbonaceous Chondrites, and Achondrites. Thank you!! "THE UNIVERSE IS LIKE A PERFECT TIME PIECE, THE BILLIONS OF STARS, PLANETS AND GALAXIES ARE PERFECTLY DESIGNED IN HARMONY MOVING THROUGH SPACE" Yes;- The movements of the stars and the planets are so regular that even years in advance their position can be determined with perfect accuracy.

Groundbreaking scientific simulations and visualizations based on cutting-edge research developed by American Museum of Natural History astrophysicists, scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and other international colleagues explore the full range of space collisions, past, present and future. Visitors of all ages can take on the role of explorers, participate in real-world amateur astronomy activities and make comparisons between the risks of asteroid or comet impacts and more familiar natural disasters such as tsunamis, tornados, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Explore small objects in our solar system, learn how to watch for meteors and comets, take a cool-headed scientific view of cosmic impact disasters. The light spectra, combined with trajectory and light curve measurements, have yielded various compositions and densities, ranging from fragile snowball-like objects with density about a quarter that of ice, to nickel-iron rich dense rocks. And even dependent on approach towards earth with respect to earth's rotation.

Our moon is covered in these scars that can be seen from your own back yard. Mix and swirl different colors to create new colors and textures. Looking up at the sky we can see the sun during the day and at night we can see the moon, planets and stars. The Moon has about three hundred thousand impact craters with diameters of 0.6 of a mile or more.
