    Earth And Space In Space: Despite its own special conditions,the Earth is in some ways similar to the other inner planets the group of planets nearer to the sun.Of these planets,Mercury is the closest to the sun;Venus is second;the Earth is third ;and Mars is fourth.All of these planets, including the Earth,are basically balls of rock.Mercury is the smallest in size. Its diameter is about two thirds the greatest width of the Atlantic Ocean. Mars is larger than Mercury,but its diameter is only a little more than half that of the Earth.Venus,with a diameter of roughly 7,600 miles (12,000 kms),is almost as large as the Earth. Four of the five outer planets are much bigger than any of the inner ...

  • Earth As Living Machine - 1,002 words
    Earth As Living Machine We live in an extraordinary era of exploration. We are now able to reach far out into space and deep down into the ocean. We have the advantage with technology such as computers and satellites. We can now simply understand the dynamic forces that shape our Earth. Our Earth is constantly destructing and recreating. It balances through a continuous rebirth cycle. The Earths dynamic shape can be summed up very simply-Transfer Of Energy. This "Big Idea" helps to explain many things such as plate tectonics, ocean floor spreading, continental drift, volcanoes, earthquakes, just about everything that happens naturally on earth. Plate Tectonics links together Alfred Wegeners ...

It is the only planet known to have the right temperature and the right atmosphere to support the kind of environments and natural resources in which plants and man and other animals can survive. This fact is so important to man that he has developed a special science called ecology, which deals with the dependence of all living things will continue to survive on the planet. Many millions of kinds of plants and animals have developed on Earth. They range in size from microscopic plant and animals to giant trees and mammoth whales.

    ... salt dissolved in the oceans is, on the average, 34.5 percent by weight. About the same percentage can be obtained if three quarters of a teaspoon of salt is dissolved in eight ounces of water. Water Supply for the Earth Water that evaporates from the surface of the oceans into the atmosphere provides most of the rain that falls on the continents. Steadily moving air currents in the Earth's atmosphere carry the moist air inland. When the air cools, the vapour condenses to form water droplets. These are seen most commonly as clouds. Often the droplets come together to form raindrops. If the atmosphere is cold enough, snowflakes form instead of raindrops. In either case, water that has tr ...

  • Earth Population - 424 words
    Earth Population Our Earth has changed more dramatically in the 20th Century then in any other time period previous. During this time the health of our planet has also been both harmed and improved in dramatic ways. Two examples are that in this century, we have produced more air pollution then ever before, but our nature conservation efforts are working. Based on that type of logic, it is usually very easy for a scientist to tell if a particular change in our environment during the 20th Century, was good or bad for our planet. That is where population growth comes in and breaks this idea. Is population growth good or bad for our world? This is a question which scientists around the world ha ...

  • Earthday - 1,330 words
    Earthday Earth Day Earth Day is April 22. Earth Day is most often observed by the media, hundreds of local groups and noted on calendars on April 22. Many people also observe Earth Week and Earth Month. Since most events and festivals need to take place on a weekend, Earth Day is observed on the weekends before and after April 22. Others also observe it on March 21, the Vernal Equinox or on World Environment Day, June 6. Remember, that really, every day is an Earth Day - we just need to live our lives that way. History of Earth Day For years prior to Earth Day it had been troubling to me that the critical matter of the state of our environment was simply a non-issue in the politics of our co ...

    Earthquakes Earthquakes have plagued our lives for as long as people have inhabited the earth. These dangerous acts of the earth have been the cause of many deaths in the past century. So what can be done about these violent eruptions that take place nearly with out warning? Predicting an earthquake until now has almost been technologically impossible. With improvements in technology, lives have been saved and many more will. All that remains is to research what takes place before, during, and after an earthquake. This has been done for years to the point now that a successful earthquake prediction was made and was accurate. This paper will discuss a little about earthquakes in general and t ...

    Earthquakes EARTH QUAKE REFERENCE FILES EARTHQUAKE REFERENCE FILES Earthquake, shaking of the earths surface caused by rapid movement of the earths rocky outer layer. Earthquakes occur when energy stored within the earth, usually in the form of strain in rocks, suddenly releases. This energy is transmitted to the surface of the earth by earthquake waves. The study of earthquakes and the waves they create is called seismology. Scientists who study earthquakes are called seismologists. (Websters p.423) The destruction an earthquake causes, depends on its magnitude or the amount of shaking that occurs. The size varies from small imperceptible shaking, to large shocks felt miles around. Earthqua ...

  • Earths Geological History - 343 words
    Earth's Geological History Scientist would need a variety of different pieces of evidence to document the scope and scale of geologic history. The earth is billions of years old, therefore rocks are obvious evidence of it's geologic history. Since all natural land masses ever created on earth stay on earth, it is a fact that the scope and scale can be determined by using it as evidence. The movement of the land masses and land creations can help determine the scope and scale of earth's geologic history. Rocks are obvious evidence of geologic history. Rocks come from the interior of the earth. They are created from magma, and change its form over years of weathering. Scientist also use rock l ...

  • Earthworms - 429 words
    Earthworms Earthworms are classified as Annelida. Annelida mean little rings which refers to the many segments in their body. The structure of an earthworms body is made up of more than one hundred segments separated by partitions that divide the coelum. All segments are identical except by the anterior and posterior ends. The anterior segments reflect the cephalization that is an adaption of burrowing. The head of the earthworm contains the sense organs. The muscle lines that make up the interior body wall are circular and longitudinal. Earthworms move by anchoring some segments by their setae and contracts the circular muscles in front of those segments, producing fluid pressure in the ant ...

  • East Asian Economy - 697 words
    East Asian Economy annon A large economic downturn in East Asia threatens to end its nearly 30 year run of high growth rates. The crisis has caused Asian currencies to fall 50-60%, stock markets to decline 40%, banks to close, and property values to drop. The crisis was brought on by currency devaluations, bad banking practices, high foreign debt, loose government regulation, and corruption. Due to East Asia’s large impact on the world economy, the panic in Thailand, Indonesia, Korea, and other Asian countries has prompted other countries to worry about the affect on their own economies and offer aid to the financially troubled nations (Sanger 1). The East Asian crisis has affected almo ...

  • East Of Eden - 562 words

This heartfelt dream is what sets George and Lennie aside from the other men, yet ironically it is so easily shattered. Throughout the book Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, copious comparisons to animals are stated, signifying that their antagonistic way of life was not suitable for humans; This animal imagery helps elucidate the somewhat abstract ideals and character traits present in the text. Lennies demeanor is compared to many animals, Lennies death is compared to the death of Curlys dog, and ...

    East Of Eden Book/Movie Comparison East of Eden: Book / Movie Explanation John Steinbecks epic tale, East of Eden, is portrayed very accurately in Elia Kazans film adaptation of the novel. Though the screen adaptation of East of Eden is an excellent portrayal, one of the most probable reasons for deleting sections of the book were constraints of time and money. Apparently the directors choices to delete certain sections of the book obviously did not affect the movie or the books plot line too greatly. The director most probably felt that the backgrounds of Adam or Kate were not necessary since in this movie the main theme circulated around Cal and Arons fight to win their fathers love and at ...
