Earth’s orbital eccentricity about the Sun is 0.017 and Earth’s moon has an orbital eccentricity of 0.054. Gas molecules within 360 Mars’ radii of Mars are more gravitationally attracted to Mars than the Sun. Most scientific researchers are in a perpetual hunt for money to fund their work and pay their salaries.
Having a moon’s orbit lie in its planet’s equatorial plane (which Earth’s moon does not) also demands a physical explanation for how that happened. During the flood, an ocean of gas molecules were distributed throughout the inner solar system, so Mars’ atmosphere, as a first approximation, was about 360 Mars’ radii thick. Jewitt acknowledged that this object’s orbital parameters clearly show that it is an asteroid. Tony Phillips, “Corkscrew Asteroid,” headlines/y2006/09jun_ If asteroids and comets placed water on Mars “The complex suite of organic materials in carbonaceous chondrite meteorites probably originally formed in the interstellar medium and/or the solar protoplanetary disk, but were subsequently modified in the meteorites’ asteroidal parent bodies.
The cause of the heating cannot be long-lived radioisotopes; given the primordial concentrations of the isotopes and the expected rate of heat loss, calculations show that the radioactive decay could not have melted Vesta or any other asteroid.
Another heating mechanism must therefore be responsible, but what is it?
Dividing the left equation by the right gives: This means that a steady, 1-pound force could a rock away from the Sun if the rock weighed 1,600 pounds on Earth and the rock were more than 93,000,000 miles above the Sun and far from Earth. Much of it would have dissolved in the hot, subterranean water. Claims are sometimes made that radioactive decay generated the heat, but standard calculations that would support those speculations are never shown. They visualized phenomena by reasoning only from effects we see today back to possible causes.Third, a typical impact generates minuscule amounts of melted rock relative to the volume of the impact-generated debris. Small “chips” might be expelled, but only in extremely rare circumstances would they be placed in orbit around the asteroid by the gravitational attraction of other debris. Had the solar system and the molybdenum isotopes found in meteorites come from the debris of one exploded star and millions of years of mixing, these different isotopes should be spread somewhat uniformly in meteorites. Every statistician knows that with enough variables (in this case, enough stars exploding in different ways for millions of years), many untestable explanations can be proposed. The smaller, asteroid-size moons of the giant planets tend to have irregular orbits. To capture an asteroid, much of its orbital energy must be removed (or dissipated), so the planet’s gravity can hold onto the asteroid. Because meteorites are so similar to the material inside Earth, many researchers believe that the Earth formed from infalling meteoroids. Birger Schmitz et al., “Sediment-Dispersed Extraterrestrial Chromite Traces a Major Asteroid Disruption Event,” could finally explain why the most common type of asteroid looks different—spectroscopically more red—from the most common type of meteorite. This pressure-temperature combination, called the allows water to exist simultaneously in three states: solid, liquid, and gas.And last, the low escape velocities of asteroids allow much of the most strongly heated material to escape.” It is now known that Ceres rotates once every 9.075 hours but its spin axis deviates only 3 from being perpendicular to the Earth’s orbital plane. [See Table 21.] For example, Jupiter has at least 31 irregular moons, the largest, Himalia, is 150 kilometers (93 miles) in diameter. Captures rarely result from chance gravitational encounters with other large bodies. Hutcheon, “Signs of an Early Spring,” “Bruno D’Argenio, a geologist working for the Italian National Research Council, and Giuseppi Geraci, professor of molecular biology at Naples University, identified and brought back to life extraterrestrial microorganisms lodged inside , Vol. One should also consider whether Failure to consider both possibilities is the same logical fallacy described in Endnote 4, page 330. Apparently, some sort of ‘space weathering’ is reddening the surface of S-type asteroids.”, Vol. Because the average surface temperature of Mars is colder than -80F and the atmospheric pressure is 6–10 mbar, liquid water would quickly freeze on Mars.Had they also reasoned from cause to effect—from water in a subterranean chamber to its consequences (such as tidal pumping producing supercritical water)—they might have realized that large rocks would have been launched from Earth during the flood. pallasites cooled below 975 K at significantly diverse rates.Since samples from the core-mantle boundary should have indistinguishable cooling rates, MG pallasites could not have cooled at this location.”“Spectroscopic observations of Vesta’s surface indicate that it is covered with volcanic basalt, leading researchers to conclude that Vesta’s interior once melted.
