Clearly explain the nebular theory in the formation of our Solar System. What is

Clearly explain the nebular theory in the formation of our Solar System.
What is the most likely explanation for the formation of the asteroid belt? The Kuiper Belt? The Oort Cloud?
What is the most likely scenario for how the Earth got its moon? Are there or were there any competing explanations for our moon? If so, name a viable competing explanation.
What happened to the solar system when the Sun began to fuse hydrogen into helium?
Is the arrangement of planets we have (rocky near the sun, gaseous further out) typical of a planetary system? You may have to do a little research for this question. Hint: Look at the Kepler Satellite data.

choose an image from NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day, give us the link, and answer the following three questions: (1) Describe the image, (2) tell us why you chose it, and (3) tell us why it’s relevant to the course. In other words, focus on the relevant science involved in the image.

What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of refracting telescopes versu

What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of refracting telescopes versus reflecting telescopes?
Why are we “looking back in time” when we look at the night sky? (or anywhere for that matter) What does that tell you about what you may not see?
What are the two main reasons that we have telescopes in space (vs on Earth)? What can we do to compensate for at least one of these reasons?
There are three main qualities of a telescope: light-collecting area, resolution, and magnifying power. Describe each quality and explain how they benefit our viewing capabilities.
What is adaptive optics? How does it work? What are its benefits?

Choose a telescope somewhere in the world and answer the following questions: (1) Where is it?, (2) What type of telescope is it and what type light does it “see”?, (3) What are its strengths and limitations?, (4) What are it’s main contributions to astronomy to date? (5) Include a photo of the telescope.
Be sure to provide references and/or links to your sources.

Demonstration of Mastery Exercises (DOMEs)
The activity will involve utilizing a combination of problem-solving, real-world application, critical thinking, attention to detail, and decision-making.
This exercise involves two parts:
Applying the scientific method to investigate the effects of greenhouse gases and clouds on Earth’s atmospheric temperature using an interactive simulation.
Integrating experiment conclusions and synthesizing related concepts to a) summarize the process of atmospheric heating, and b) evaluate given scenarios where atmospheric warming impacts flight.
The activity will take 2-3 hours to complete and is due at the end of the module.
