Encyclopedia

Terrestrial refers to things related to land or the planet Earth. — Wikipedia

Terrestrial planet, telluric planet, or rocky planet is a planet that is composed primarily of silicate rocks or metals. Within the Solar System, the terrestrial planets are the inner planets closest to the Sun, i.e. Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. The terms “terrestrial planet” and “telluric planet” are derived from Latin words for Earth (Terra and Tellus), as these planets are, in terms of structure, “Earth-like”. — Wikipedia

Encyclopædia Britannica

Earth, otherwise known as the world, is the third planet from the Sun and the only object in the Universe known to harbor life. It is the densest planet in the Solar System and the largest of the four terrestrial planets. — Wikipedia

  • SOAR Telescope catches Dimorphos's expanding...
    on October 3, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft intentionally crashed into Dimorphos, the asteroid moonlet in the double-asteroid system of Didymos, on Monday, 26 September 2022. This was the first planetary defense test in which an impact of a spacecraft attempted to modify the orbit of an asteroid.

  • Image: Sun releases strong solar flare
    on October 3, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    The sun emitted a strong solar flare that peaked at 4:25 p.m. EDT on Oct. 2, 2022. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the sun constantly, captured an image of the event.

  • Hubble spies a stately spiral galaxy
    on October 3, 2022 at 4:42 pm

    The stately sweeping spiral arms of the spiral galaxy NGC 5495 are revealed by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3 in this image. NGC 5495, which lies around 300 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra, is a Seyfert galaxy, a type of galaxy with a particularly bright central region. These luminous cores—known toastronomers as active galactic nuclei—are dominated by the light emitted by dust and gas falling into a supermassive black hole.

  • How does NASA plan to keep samples from Mars safe...
    on October 3, 2022 at 4:22 pm

    NASA's Mars Sample Return Mission is inching closer and closer. The overall mission architecture just hit a new milestone when Perseverance collected the first sample that will be sent back. But what happens once that sample actually gets here? NASA and its partner, ESA, are still working on that, but recently they released a fact sheet that covers what will happen during the first stage of that process—returning to the ground.

  • Hubble spies a lonely spiral
    on October 3, 2022 at 4:19 pm

    The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3 imaged this lonely spiral galaxy called UGC 9391.
