      Satelites

    • B.

      Planets

    Correct Answer
    B. Planets
    Explanation
    The question asks about what is in the center of space. Satellites are objects that orbit around planets or other celestial bodies, so they cannot be in the center of space. On the other hand, planets are celestial bodies that exist and revolve around stars, and they can be found in various locations in space, including the center. Therefore, the correct answer is planets.

    Is pluto a planet?

    • A.

      No

    • B.

      Yes

    • C.

      I dont know, no i guess

    Correct Answer
    A. No
    Explanation
    Pluto is not considered a planet because in 2006, the International Astronomical Union redefined the definition of a planet, and Pluto did not meet the new criteria. According to the new definition, a planet must orbit the sun, be spherical in shape, and have cleared its orbit of other debris. Pluto meets the first two criteria but fails the third one as it shares its orbit with other objects in the Kuiper Belt. Therefore, it is now classified as a dwarf planet.

    What really is a shooting star?

    • A.

      A shooting star is not actually a star, nor does it shoot. A shooting star is officially called a meteor

    • B.

      A star that falls on the ground

    Correct Answer
    A. A shooting star is not actually a star, nor does it shoot. A shooting star is officially called a meteor
    Explanation
    A shooting star is not actually a star because it is not a celestial body that undergoes nuclear fusion. It also does not shoot, as the term "shooting" is used metaphorically to describe its appearance as it streaks across the sky. Instead, a shooting star is officially called a meteor, which is a small piece of space debris that enters the Earth's atmosphere and burns up, creating a bright streak of light.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      Maybe

    Correct Answer
    C. Maybe
    Explanation
    The answer "Maybe" suggests that it is uncertain whether NASA will explore the existence of another planet. It implies that there is a possibility that NASA might conduct investigations or missions to discover new planets, but it is not confirmed. The answer leaves room for both the possibility and uncertainty of NASA's actions in this regard.
