What planet has the most visible rings

Saturn is the planet with the most visible rings. Saturn's rings are one of the most iconic symbols of astronomy.
Saturn is the planet in our solar system that is famous for the rings.

The end of a river

Mouth

What about Earth allows it to maintain bodies of water

moderate temperatures and strong gravity (APEX)

A solar system may form from a spinning disk of material called a

accretion disk

Gas giants have many more moons than terrestrial planets due to having higher

gravity

An explosion of a star

When a star explodes, it is referred to as a nova. If the star is large enough, it will create a super nova. And if the star is dense enough, it does not explode, but instead collapses on itself and forms a black hole

What Is the terrestrial planet that has no atmosphere

what is the terrestrial planet that has no atmosphere

What is the smallest of the terrestrial planets

Mercury is the smallest of the terrestrial planets.

Contains mostly older stars with a red color

elliptical galaxy....

Stellar equilibrium is a balance between what two things

Outward pressure and inward gravity

Titan is a moon that orbits around

Saturn

The dense remains of a star

Depends on the mass of the host star.

It could be:-

  1. White Dwarf
  2. Neutron Star
  3. Black Hole
Why isn't it possible to have a full moon and a solar eclipse at the same time

In a full moon, the Moon is on the other side of Earth from the Sun. In a solar eclipse, the Moon is on the SAME side of the Earth as the Sun.

As water is cooled its density does what until it reaches about 4 C

As water is cooled its density increases until it reaches about 4 C and then it decreases.

What arms extend from a core full of black holes

The Milky Way.

Which types of clouds are made up mostly of ice crystal's

Cirrus Clouds are mostly made up entirely of ice crystals.

Is it true Pluto has a moon

Pluto has five moons.

Do terrestrial planets have more moons than the outer gas giants

Terrestrial means on Earth so Earth is the only terrestrial planet

This is incorrect, the first 4 planets are terrestrial as they are solidly bound planets. Pluto was also a terrestrial dwarf planet. Any planet can have moons but due to the gas giants having larger gravitational forces they have traditionally gathered more moons. Thusly, no.

The giant red spot is found on the planet

the giant red spot is found in the planet jupiter.

What is a name that is given to a new star

first it is a nebula, a large cloud of gas and dust that is spread out in an immense volume. After it forms a protostar, which is a large cloud of gas and dust with enough mass to form a star. Then it matters what is that star's mass. it could be a high mass star or a small or medium mass star like our sun.

Why is true of Pluto

Pluto barks. Goofy talks.

What has the most habitable other than earth

Mars

When the moon is on the side of the earth and opposite the sun

When the moon is on the side of the earth opposite the sun you get a full-moon.
