i agree. with reach u could figure out a lot about star charasteristics once u understood the basics adn the only memoriztion was over the stars and the basic info on them. in solar ure going to have to just plain memorize all the planets charecteristics... very little to figure out im guessing.
I believe you are extremely wrong that there wasn't much to memorize!!! :evil: There was a lot of memorization including stellar evolutions/cycles, Constellations, names of stars, redshift, and much more!!! :evil: :!: :!:

Don't be too sure about that...you never know. They can go very in depth to the planets and their moons. And don't forget the Sun, dwarf planets, and other parts of the solar system. There actually is a lot to study.

That is also very true EASTstroudsburg13(good point that I wou8ld have taken if thought about...). Just think of all the "dwarf planets" and asteroids and moons we have inside our solar system...

I think they'll probably ask us only the main moons.... Io, Ganymede, Calipso... + Europa + their characteristics.
Just like in stars they didn't ask us every star of every constellation on the list.
