1 Answer/Comment
The thermosphere is the "hottest" layer of the Earth's atmosphere. As the outermost layer with substantial numbers of molecules, it receives the most direct radiation from the Sun.

However, despite the high molecular temperatures measured there (over 1500°C) the actual energy per volume is very low. This layer, more than 80 kilometers in altitude, is practically a vacuum, and includes the orbits of most satellites and spacecraft.

Magna Carta was arguably the most significant early influence on the extensive historical process that led to the rule of constitutional law today in the English speaking world. Magna Carta influenced the development of the common law and many constitutional documents, including the United States Constitution. [1] Many clauses were renewed throughout the Middle Ages, and continued to be renewed as late as the 18th century. By the second half of the 19th century, however, most clauses in their original form had been repealed from English law. Magna Carta was the first document forced onto an English King by a group of his subjects (the barons) in an attempt to limit his powers by law and protect their privileges. It was preceded by the 1100 Charter of Liberties in which King Henry I voluntarily stated what his own powers were under the law. In practice, Magna Carta in the Medieval period mostly did not limit the power of Kings; but by the time of the English Civil War it had become an important symbol for those who wished to show that the King was bound by the law. Magna Carta is ... (More)
