    Q. What do you call astronomy tools placed in orbit around Earth. They have special instruments and telescopes that collect information from space. This information is sent back to Earth where it is interpreted.
    answer choices
    Satellite
    Space Probe
    Radio telescope
    Spectroscope
  • Question 4

    Q. What do you call the astronomy tool that receive radio waves emitted from objects in space, including waves from very distant stars and galaxies; it can receive information in any weather and during day or night.
    answer choices
    Radio telescope
    Spectroscope
    Space probe
    Infrared telescope
  • Question 5

    Report an issue
    Q. What do you call the astronomy tool that collects light from distant stars and separate that light into bands of different colors; by studying these bands, astronomers can identify the elements, density, and temperature of distant stars and perhaps planets.
    answer choices
    Space Probe
    Spectroscope
    Infrared telescope
    Satellite
  • Question 6
    120 seconds
    Report an issue
    Q. What do you call the astronomy tool that contains specialize instruments to collect data. They often travel out of Earth’s orbit to explore places that would be too dangerous for humans.
    answer choices
    Space Probes
    Spectroscope
    Satellites
    Space Shuttle
  • Question 7
    120 seconds

    Q. What do you call the amount of matter in an object. It remains the same regardless of an object's location.
    answer choices
    Mass
    Weight
    Gravity
    Force
  • Question 8
    120 seconds
    Report an issue
    Q. What do you call the measure of gravitational pull on an object. (Mass times gravity) This changes depending on the objects location.
    answer choices
    Gravity
    Mass
    Weight
    Inertia
  • Question 9
