2. Unmanned Space-crafts This is the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a space telescope that was carried into orbit by the space shuttle in April 1990. It is named after the American astronomer named Edwin Hubble. Hubble’s orbit outside the distortion of Earth’s atmosphere allows it to take extremely sharp images with almost no background light. This is the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, also known as the SOHO probe. The SOHO probe was launched on a Lockheed Martin Atlas launch vehicle on December 2 1995 to study the sun. It’s total mass is 1,850 kg. Pioneer 10 was the first to travel through the asteroid belt, which it entered on July 15, 1972, and to make direct observations of Jupiter, which it passed by on December 3, 1973. It’s objective were to study the interplanetary and planetary magnetic fields; solar wind parameters, to photograph Jupiter, it’s satellite and lots more others.
3. Unmanned Space-crafts (continued) The Lunar Prospector is a satellite of the moon. It’s Launch date is January 7, 1998, and was launched by Athena II (the launch vehicle). It was used for a low polar orbit investigation of the moon, including mapping the surface composition and possible polar ice deposits and more. Unfortunately, the mission ended in July 31, 1999 due to the orbited was crashed into a crater. The JUNO space-craft is a mission led by Dr. Scott Bolton to the planet Jupiter. The space-craft was placed in a polar orbit to study the planet’s composition, gravity field, magnetic field, and polar magnetosphere. JUNO will also search for clues about how Jupiter formed. The twin Voyager spacecraft, launched in 1977 to travel and to explore Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, have made many intriguing discoveries, including a possible ocean of liquid water on one of Jupiter’s moon.
4. Our Alien Bubblepus Bubblepus has compound eyes to see in every direction and can hide the eyes in the body when cold. The body is made out of bubbles to keep it warm. It can change color to camouflage and is very flexible. Tentacles to help itself move on ice and rocky surfaces. Mouth to help eat ice Our alien Bubblepus lives on Pluto. It is very, very cold so the furry bubbles on it’s body helps it keep warm. It eats Ice (melts it down to water- H2O) to survive and lives in dams. The bubbles contain an endless supply of oxygen from H2O. Whenever it’s hungry, it eats more ice to melt it down into water. It’s body is very flexible so it can change it’s shape.
