Probing questions provide a deeper understanding of an issue or topic. This type of question encourages reflection, aids in the creation of a paradigm shift and allows for multiple responses.
Examples of probing questions are: "What happened next?" "What would you do differently next time?" "How did you feel about that?" "What was your actual role in that?" "Why did you choose that method?" Probing questions are open-ended questions that are asked to gain in-depth information.
Space probes carry instruments into space to make measurements that cannot be made on Earth. Temperature, spectrum, magnetic fields and radiation comprise just a few of the types of phenomena measured. Space probes ride atop a rocket and then separate and set a course based on instructions from Eart
The first space probe, Sputnik 1, was invented in 1957 by a large team of engineers, scientists and designers employed by the Soviet Union and headed by rocket pioneer Sergei Korolev. A space probe is any unmanned, automated instrument sent into space to observe phenomena and collect scientific data
A Hall probe is a sophisticated instrument used to measure magnetic field strength. It is a thin film that measures the transverse voltage when it is placed in the magnetic field. The Hall probe works on the Hall effect that was discovered by the scientist E.H. Hall in 1879.
Meat probes contain heat-reactive materials and measure temperature by gauging the reaction of the material when it comes in contact with the heated layers of meat. There are several different types of meat thermometers, including dial, bulb and digital models. Each of these types works differently.
Active satellites include the International Space Station and the Norwegian Coastal Administration's AISSat-2 low Earth orbit satellite, while active space probes include NASA's Voyager I and Voyager II probes, as of 2015. Voyager II was launched 16 days before Voyager I and is the longest continuou
As of June 2014, there have been a total of four probes to visit the planet Saturn. Since the Pioneer 11 spacecraft first visited Saturn in 1979, much has been learned about the ringed planet.
As of 2014, no probes have been sent to Neptune. The only spacecraft to fly near to the planet was Voyager 2, which passed it in 1989.
The main mission of the New Horizons probe is to study the dwarf planet Pluto, its moons and similar celestial bodies called Kuiper belt objects. New Horizons fulfills the role of the Pluto Kuiper Explorer, an earlier NASA Pluto mission that was never launched.
