The aspect of the gas giants that has the biggest effect on their rings and satellites is their 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 smallest of the terrestrial planets

Mercury is the smallest of the terrestrial planets.

What do all of the terrestrial planets have in common

They all have solid, rocky surfaces.

Which planet do most known extrasolar planets most resemble

Jupiter Neptune

The planet that most extrasolar planets resembles Jupiter.

Jupiter(apex)
Most of the confirmed Exoplanets are larger gaseous planets with large masses. These are easier to detect and confirm due to their size. They most resemble Jupiter, although many are thought to be much larger than our largest planet.

Of all the gas giants has the shortest period of revolution

Jupiter

Which has not actually been seen by astronomers

The shape of the path of a planet or asteroid around the sun is

Which gases are found in the atmosphere of the gas giants

It's mainly hydrogen and helium in the atmospheres ofJupiter and Saturn. Uranus and Neptune are similar, but with about 3%methane .

The sun rotates

at different speeds along its sphere.

Solar flares may be seen in the suns

You can see Solar Flares in the Suns' Corona.

How will you be able to track your own progress in this course

By keeping your Fitness Log accurately and honestly.

All the rocky planets Venus is the one humans are most likely to colonize

False

Is it true Pluto has a moon

Pluto has five moons.

Which gas giants have more moons than the terrestrial planets

All of our Solar Systems gas giants have more moons than the terrestrial planets.

Jupiter (63), Saturn (62), Uranus (27) and Neptune (13).

How do we know the sun rotates

We know the Sun rotates because we can watch sunspots on the face of the Sun.

Which best describes the beginning of the big bang

They don't understand how redshift affects stars.

Why do astronomers find it difficult to locate extrasolar planets with telescope

light from the they orbit makes it difficult to locate extrasolar planets with telescope

Which is true of pluto
