    Mars. However, the amount of time to develop such a rigorous mission would consume ages of work and analysis. As the result, the development of a polar-orbiting satellite should offer the ability to further estimate the lifespan of the Earth’s Ozone layer and to overall observe Earth’s conditions to propose early warning signs and enact restrictions of human pollution. In addition, the satellite’s presence within orbit should not exceed over thirty-five years because of the rapidly growing advancements

    atmosphere contains ozone. That helps protect our skin from harmful sun rays. Many layers make up our atmosphere. There are five main layers, the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere, and lastly the exosphere. Each layer has a different purpose. Clouds are located in the atmosphere and are a big part of the water cycle. There are different types of clouds and they all have different effects. Conduction and convection also play a big part in how we live our lives today. Ozone is a gas in the
