Desert -The desert biome is a huge biome. It covers ⅕ of the Earth’s surface. There is two main types of desert biome- the hot and the cold. The rainfall is very low- 8-13 centimetres per annum. The plants are minimal because it is always hard to find and store water and it is a very tough environment to grow in. Antarctica is the largest cold biome covered in ice and snow. The largest hot biome in the whole world is the Sahara desert, which is in Africa.
A huge part that makes the Earth different from any other planet is the diverse environments or biomes that make up the lands. The different environments help create the different cultures around the world which help shape people personalities and their everyday lifestyle. Each biome has different factors in them that describe them which are their cultures and the three main types of land biomes are the tundra, grassland/desert and forest.
The astronauts onboard had to figure out an intelligent and safe way to make it back to the ground in one piece. While on their way down to Earth, the three men were ambushed by tons of obstacles and problems that were caused due to the explosion. The LEM didn’t have enough water or power to last them while on their journey back home. The temperature was freezing cold, the ship kept drifting off course, the LEM’s filters stopped working causing the air to be intoxicated with CO2, and they barely slept. All these problems they had were not making this new mission any easier, but all they were able to do is stay calm and hope for the
The first problem the crew had to experience resonated with the main engine quitting after the ship lifted off. The flight was going very well until a loud bang and also came with a warning light that Jack Swigert saw and said "Houston, we've had a problem here."With further inspection they figured out that it was the main B bus undervolt.The warning lights showed that three fuel cells were lost, which was the main source of electricity for the spaceship. While the warning lights were blinking they noticed that one of their oxygen tanks was empty and another was depleting fast. Upon further inspection the crew realized that the oxygen was venting out of the spaceship into the vacuumless space.
The Apollo 13 mission was a significant historical event, because of the dangerous repercussions that followed the explosion of the oxygen tank on Apollo 13. The story in which the astronauts Lovell, Swigert, and Haise surviving these errors during the flight is truly incredible. In the movie Apollo 13, the creators depicted most of the events involving the crew’s adventure to and from space quite accurately. Although creating most events successfully the creators of Apollo 13 failed in many regards when it came to the creation of the plans the crew used to survive, and the small details that were missed, involving the crew in the process of flying the space shuttle and surviving the accident.
The Desert Southwest is a very interesting place for non natives.

The cultural group that I am researching is the Yaqui (Sonoran Desert, U.S. and Mexico). The topic I have chosen to research is the different rituals the Yaqui perform. The reason I chose to research the Yaqui is because they’re indigenous to the same region as I am. The Yaqui, “people of Sonora [Mexico] settled along the Yaqui river… many Yaqui emigrated to Arizona to escape subjugation” (“Yaqui.” Columbia 2016). Growing up I never realized how much history took place in Southern Arizona, so it’s interesting to be able to learn about the people who made Arizona the state it is today. It’s very important for me to learn about the Yaqui, since the Pascua Yaqui tribe is based right here in Tucson, Arizona. Knowing the history of your state, country, culture, etc. is important so that you understand the present times and how the future could be formed. As for choosing to research the rituals of the Yaqui, I thought it would be a good opportunity to learn about the different rituals that take place in their everyday lives and how these ceremonies differ from events that take place in my own life.
The Mongols were a very controversial group of people who caused carnage and destruction for the greater good of peace. Genghis Khan was a very honorable leader who created the Mongolians immense peace. Were the Mongols barbaric though? The Mongolians of the Asian Steppe had a positive impact on the world during their rule of the Asian continent from 1206 to 1368 by influencing trade, religious tolerance , and Pax Mongolica.
In class, we have been studying snakes in the Sonoran desert. While learning about snakes we found four that look very identical having the same stripes, a reddish-orangish color, black and white skin. They have a similar pattern of stripes. We decided to find out why would snakes like these would live in the Sonoran desert. The guiding question was, “Why do the Sonoran coral snake, the Sonoran Mountain kingsnake, the milk snake and the Sonoran shovel-nosed snake look similar?”
