binary Something that has two integral parts.
droide A fiction robot with artificial intelligence. The term was coined for its use in the War of the galaxies universe, and it's short for android.
exotic An adjective to describe something that is highly strange, strange or foreign (such as exotic plants).
geology The study of the physical structure and the substance of the Earth, its history and the processes that act on it. People who work in this field are known as geologists. Planetary geology is the science of studying the same things about other planets.
habitat The area or natural environment in which an animal or plant usually lives, such as a desert, a coral reef or a freshwater lake. A habitat can house thousands of different species.
tone A color or shadow of a color.
Kuiper belt An area of the solar system beyond the Neptune orbit. It is an extensive area that contains remains of the formation of the solar system that continue to orbit the sun. Many objects of the Kuiper belt are made of ice, rock, frozen methane and ammonia. The best-known of Kuiper Belt's largest objects is the dwarf planet Pluto. The belt extends from the sun to a distance of 30 to 55 astronomical units. (An astronomical unit is equal to that of Earth from the sun).
lobe A rounded projection and somewhat flat. Many leaves, for example, have lobated edges.
dough A hydrocarbon with the chemical formula CH4 (which means that there are four hydrogen atoms attached to a carbon atom). It is a natural component of what is known as natural gas. It is also emitted by the decomposition of vegetal material in wetlands and are emitted by cows and other ruminant animals. From a climate point of view, methane is 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide that detects warming of the Earth's atmosphere, making it a very important greenhouse gas.
NASA Short for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Created in 1958, this US agency has become a leader in spatial research and stimulation of the public interest in space exploration. It was through NASA that the United States sent people to the orbit and, finally, to the moon. He has also sent research papers to study planets and other celestial objects in our solar system.
native Associated with a particular location; They've found native plants and animals in a specific place since the recorded story began.
nitrogen A colorless, odorless, non-reactive gas element that forms approximately 78 percent of the Earth's atmosphere. Its scientific symbol is N. The nitrogen is released in the form of nitrogen oxides as fossil fuels are burned.
physics The scientific study of the nature and properties of matter and energy.
planet A celestial object that orbits a star is big enough because gravity has crushed it in a round ball and has eliminated other objects out of the way in its orbital neighborhood. To achieve the third deed, the object must be large enough to have thrown objects neighboring the planet itself or to have them placed around the planet and enter into outer space.
Pluto A dwarf planet that is on the Kuiper belt, beyond Neptune. Pluto is the tenth largest object that orbits the sun.
primordial An adjective that refers to something that goes back to the beginning of time or the earliest existence of something.
radiation (in physics) One of the three main ways of transferring energy. (The other two are conduction and convection). In radiation, electromagnetic waves carry energy from one place to another. Unlike conduction and convection, which need material to help transfer energy, radiation can transfer energy to the empty space.
solar system The eight great planets and their moons in orbit around our sun, along with smaller bodies in the form of dwarf planets, asteroids, meteoroids and comets.
star The basic block of which galaxies become. The stars develop when gravity compacts the gas clouds. When they become dense enough to maintain nuclear fusion reactions, stars emit light and sometimes other forms of electromagnetic radiation. The sun is our closest star.
ground The star at the center of the Earth's solar system. It is an average 26,000-year-old star of the galaxy center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Also a term for any solitary star.
