Several decades ago scientists discovered that the moon, long thought to have no atmosphere, actually does have an extremely thin exosphere scientists generally believe that the ions that make up the lunar exosphere are generated at the moon's surface by interaction with solar photons, plasma in. Image courtesy of nasa the exosphere very high up the thermosphere is directly above the mesosphere and below the exosphere it extends from about 90 km (56 miles) to between 500 and 1,000 km (311 tomore temperature in the exosphere.
The exosphere is the outermost layer of earth's atmosphere although it is thin, it absorbs radiation that the sun gives off, shielding the layers of the atmosphere. Nasa scientists have released new findings about the moon's tenuous exosphere - the thin layer of gas surrounding the moon that's one 25-trillionth the density of earth's atmosphere the data reveal, for the first time. The earth's layers of atmosphere differ in chemical composition and temperature they combine to create a protective sheild that maintains our delicate energy balance essential for life on earth most weather occures in the nearest layer, the troposphere (0-7 miles) the stratosphere is the level.
The exosphere is one of the five layers of earth's atmosphere the other layers include the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere the exosphere is the fifth and outermost layer of the atmosphere, beginning at the upper boundary of the thermosphere and lower exosphere, referred. The outermost layer of the earth's atmosphere related glossary terms: ionosphere.

Image courtesy of nasa the exosphere at very high altitudes, the atmosphere becomes very thin the region where atoms and molecules escape into space is referred to as the exosphere this is the true upper limit of the earth's atmosphere the. Exploring exoplanets with kepler this activity is related to a teachable moment from may 6, 2016 when mercury is in front of the sun, we can study the exosphere close to the planet, said nasa scientist rosemary killen. A number of weather satellites can also be found orbiting the earth in the exosphere two of nasa's weather satellites, known as advanced television infrared observation satellites, circle the planet in an almost north-south fashion -- going from pole to pole. On the moon, there's no air to breathe, no breezes to make the flags planted there by the apollo astronauts flutter however, there is a very, very thin layer of gases on the lunar surface that can almost be called an atmosphere technically, it's considered an exosphere in an exosphere, the gases.
