Atlantis launched from Kennedy Space Center on November 3, 1994 at 11:59 AM EST and landed at Edwards AFB on November 14 at 7:33 AM PST. The shuttle orbited 174 times at an altitude of 164 nautical miles at an inclination of 57 degrees and travelled 4.5 million miles. The mission lasted 10 days, 22 hours, 34 minutes, and 2 seconds. This mission further advanced efforts to collect data about sun's energy output, chemical makeup of the Earth's middle atmosphere, and how these factors affect...

Today's soil contamination is a direct result of man-made chemicals or other changes in nature's soil environment. This contamination most commonly occurs from underground storage tanks bursting, use of pesticides, discarding oil and fuel illegally, leakage of dirty surface water, draining of wastes from landfalls and knowingly dumping industrial wastes into the soil. The most widespread chemicals found are petroleum hydrocarbons, solvents, common pesticides, lead and additional heavy metals....

Environmental science is a science that contains a wide range of scientific disciplines. These disciplines are grouped together based on the natural environment which they encompass and interact with. These sciences include physical, chemical, and biological components. Environmental science provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the environmental systems. The most common way environmental science is studied is through the work of one individual or small team drawing on the...
