He ended his talk sharing tantalizing science on TNO temperatures from thermal measurements with Herschel and optical measurements used together to measure the diameter, albedo, and thermal inertia.

They derive that TNOs have low thermal inertia ( +/- MKS), lower than Saturn’s satellites (MKS), Pluto (MKS), and Charon ( MKS). 2 Recent Scientific Discoveries. Since the publication of the planetary science decadal survey, Vision and Voyages for Planetary Science in the Decade (), planetary science has made many significant advances, including acquiring results from several highly successful chapter outlines some of the highlights, ordered according to the panels of the decadal survey.

Planetary Surface Processes is the first advanced textbook to cover the full range of geologic processes that shape the surfaces of planetary-scale bodies. Using a modern, quantitative approach, this book reconsiders geologic processes outside the traditional terrestrial by: This is what is known as an “oblate spheroid”, which is a sphere that is wider at its horizontal axis than it is at its vertical axis.

According to the Working Group of the International. Experimental Stress/Strain Studies. Much of the focus of structural geology and tectonics is on the magnitude and character of present and past stress fields. Unfortunately, the present stress field is essentially unobservable except by the strains it produces; past stress fields are even more enigmatic.

The ubiquity and variety of tectonic features on outer planet satellites tells of a rich history of internal processes affecting the satellites through time. Notable examples occur on Jupiter’s Galilean satellites; several middle-sized icy satellites of Saturn and Uranus; and Neptune’s Triton.

This book describes the tectonic landforms resulting from major internal and external forces acting on the outer layers of solid bodies throughout the Solar System. It presents a detailed survey of tectonic structures at a range of length scales found on Mercury, Venus, the Moon, Mars, the outer planet satellites, and asteroids.

Science Fiction has been recently referred to as the last great literature of ideas. It contains imaginative concepts such as parallel universes, fictional worlds full of advanced technology, time travel, extraterrestrial life, and even sociocultural commentary.

Jupiter and Saturn show retrograde motion shows faster in its orbit The temperature of an object can only be zero on the Kelvin scale if all of the thermal motions of the constituent particles (molecules, atoms, electrons, etc.) within it are fully minimized and no further heat energy can be extracted from it.

Like the other giant planets of the Solar System - Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune - when we look at Jupiter we do not see a solid surface, such as we do with the four inner planets. Rather, we see the tops of clouds. Jupiter is a "gas giant," composed of roughly 75% hydrogen (by mass) and about 25% helium with trace amounts of other gases.

Recent planetary missions by NASA, the European Space Agency, and other national agencies have reaffirmed that the geological processes which are familiar from our studies of the Earth operate on many solid planets and satellites.

Common threads link the internal structure, thermal evolution, and surface character of both rocky and icy worlds. The goal of planetary meteorology is to understand what shapes and maintains these diverse circulations. The Voyager spacecraft provided the first close-up images of the atmospheres of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune and detailed information on the three satellites that have atmospheres thick enough to sport weather—Io, Titan, and : Timothy E.

abrasion - grinding and wearing away of rock surfaces through the mechanical action of other rock or sand particles driven by water, wind, or gravity. The data obtained by the Cassini spacecraft revealed that the mid-sized satellites of Saturn have been shaped by internal processes.

By comparison with Earth, it is tempting to invoke thermal convection as a driver for tectonics and resurfacing. We have investigated the conditions required for the onset of convection in these satellites. Tectonics produce linear features (cracks, ridges, and bands), and thermal effects produce splotches (chaotic terrain) (Fig.

These global-scale lineaments roughly correlate with the patterns of expected tidal stress on the ice shell (Helfenstein and Parmentier, ; Greenberg et al., ) and may record past deviations from uniform Cited by: pressure ice phases below would not react with the bulk of the rocky interior.

19 Radioactive decay could hydrolyze water on a small scale and provide small amounts of chemical energy. 20 Material transport from the surface of a body to an interior ocean could maintain a chemical energy gradient, for example due to oxidants produced by irradiation of Europa’s surface.

Thoroughly revised and updated, it provides fundamental and state-of-the-art discussion of all aspects of geophysics.

Our sight is limited, and therefore our perception. The “blue marble” of astonishing beauty we see in spacecraft photos only shows the reflection of visible light. Earth is much bigger, reaching all the way to the Moon with its electromagnetic sheath.

During this time, New Horizons crossed the orbit of Saturn (June 8, ) and Uranus on (Ma ). In Junethe spacecraft emerged from hibernation and the team began conducting. Earthquakes first appear on the USGS realtime earthquake map in response to a computer program's handling of triggers at seismic stations throughout California.

Then they are reviewed by the seismologist on call at the USGS who confirms whether the event is real. For example, there can be false triggers generated when the signal for one event gets mixed up in the signal for another earthquake. Bazilevskii, A.T.
