Outer Space

Outer space within the solar system is called interplanetary space. The vacuum of outer space is not really empty. Outer space is sparsely filled with several dozen types of organic molecules discovered to date by microwave spectroscopy. There is also gas, plasma and dust, and small meteors and material left over from previous manned and unmanned launches. These left over materials are a potential hazard to spacecraft. Some of this debris re-enters the atmosphere periodically.

The absence of air makes outer space ideal location for astronomy. The spectacular pictures sent back by the Hubble Space Telescope evidence this. Pictures and other data from unmanned space vehicles have provided invaluable information about the planets, asteroids and comets in our solar system.

What kind of feeling does the sentence above present.


Question 10:
Select the most appropriate title for the following paragraph.

The deep sea is the lowest layer in the ocean. Little or no light penetrates this area of the ocean, and most of its organisms rely on falling organic for subsistence. For this reason, life is much sparser. The other essential ingredient in for life is oxygen, which is brought to the ocean's depths via the thermohaline circulation. Deep sea is one of the most hostile environments for life, and represents the least explored of all the world's ecosystems. Cold, dark and almost inaccessible to humans, it is perhaps the closest environment on earth to outer space.
