Scientists plan to release a space probe that will enter the atmosphere of a gaseous planet. The temperature of the gaseous planet varies linearly with the height of the atmosphere. The delicate instruments on board completely fail at a height of 61.5 kilometers. What is the approximate temperature at this altitude?
