In 1953, Harold Urey and Stanley Miller mixed water vapor, methane, and ammonia in a flask. These gases are thought to have been present in Earth’s early atmosphere. Electric sparks, similar to the lightning flashes that were probably prevalent in Earth’s early days, were sent through these gases. At the conclusion of the experiment, the flask contained a variety of organic substances including amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. We still do not know how these substances gave rise to life, but we do know that the basic chemical ingredients of life could have been produced in Earth’s primitive atmosphere.

M. M. on July 15. M. Now, suppose it is November 23 and you see the pointer stars in the same 6 o’clock position. , you would expect the pointer stars to be in the 5 o’clock position. However, the inner circle shows you that these pointer stars are at a point 2 hours earlier than the 5 o’clock position (14 back to 12). M. M. will be at about 4:45. M. POLAR CONSTELLATIONS Some bright constellations turn about Polaris. A star chart shows you those constellations. The brighter the star, the bigger the dot on the chart.

However, at Earth’s core, the temperature is only 6,500°C (12,000°F). The Sun is 330,000 times more massive than Earth. The Sun’s mass is nearly 2 million trillion trillion kilograms (a 2 followed by 30 zeros) or 2 thousand trillion trillion tons. Earth is only 6 trillion trillion kilograms (a 6 followed by 24 zeros). It is the Sun’s huge mass that gives it the gravitational force needed to make all the planets revolve around it. The matter that makes up the Sun is mostly hydrogen (75 percent) and helium (24 percent).
