Is the moon the closest object in space to earth true?
Except for meteors, The Moon is, generally, the closest natural object in space to the Earth.
Usually. On rare occasions, small asteroids zip by the Earth somewhat closer to Earth than the Moon is - and occasionally, a LOT closer. There was an asteroid in late 2009 that passed by the Earth at a distance of less than 100,000 miles. In 2029 and again in 2037, the asteroid Apophis will pass by the Earth at a distance of under 20,000 miles.
If we include meteoroids, then no. Every day, the Earth is struck by tens of thousands of asteroids, and there are probably hundreds of thousands more that missed by some fairly small distance.
Which of these statements is correct A the moon is the closest object in space to earth B most of the moon's surface is covered by rocks with high water content C the maria are oceans?
The only water on the Moon is ice that is frozen rock-hard in the craters near the lunar poles, where sunlight never reaches the crater floor. The only correct statement is that the Moon is the closest object to Earth. The next closest are the planets Venus and Mars, each more than 100 times farther than the Moon.
The Moon's gravitational pull will be strongest when the Moon is closest to the Earth. The Moon's gravitational pull will be strongest when the Moon is closest to the Earth. The Moon's gravitational pull will be strongest when the Moon is closest to the Earth. The Moon's gravitational pull will be strongest when the Moon is closest to the Earth.
The moon that revolves around the earth is not a star, it is part of the earth that was thrown off into space when the earth was hit by a large asteroid early in its development, about 30 million years after the earth first was formed. The closest star to the Earth is our Sun, it is a star and it is called Sol.
The moon is the closest object in space to Earth. It is 384,399 km, or 238,854 miles away, approximately .78 of a light second. The closest star to our solar system is Proxima Centauri (V645 CEN) at 4.2 light years. There have been several successful trips to and from the Moon. There have been no trips to Proxima Centauri or any other extra solar body by anyone from Earth.
Apogee is the point, in an elliptical orbit around the Earth, where an object is furthest from the Earth. Perigee is the closest point to the Earth in such an orbit. Apogee: The point in the orbit of the moon or an artificial satellite where it's farthest from the earth. Perigee: The point in the orbit of the moon or an artificial satellite where it's closest to the earth.
Density is the mass of an object divided by an object's volume. If the object does not swell or shrink in space (changing the volume) then its density will remain the same. An object's mass is the same on Earth, as it is in space, as it is on the moon. Mass is not tied to gravity and thus does not change with location. Weight however is dependent upon gravity. An object's weight is more…
