Transcript of Thermosphere
The thermosphere is directly above the mesosphere, and directly below the exosphere.
What Can it Do?
Ultraviolet radiation causes ionization. Ionization is the process when an atom or molecule acquires a negative or positive charge by adding or losing electrons to form ions.
The thermosphere can reach up to 4,530 degrees during the day.
What Does it Mean?
Thermosphere comes from the
which means heat.
The space shuttle and International Space Station are both located in the Thermosphere.
99.99% of the Earth's atmosphere is located below the Thermosphere.
The northern lights occur in the Thermosphere.
The Thermosphere extends from 90 km to between 500 and 1,000 km above our planet.
Being so high up in the atmosphere, the air in the thermosphere is very thin, and also very hot!!
What's in the Thermosphere?
Where's the Rest?
How Far is It?
How's the Weather Up There?
Did you know that the thermosphere supports and protects life on the planet? The thermosphere also recycles water, absorbs the suns energy, and creates a moderate temperature.
