Our Solar System
Transcript of Our Solar System
The sun could have formed from a cloud of gas that collapsed from an earlier supernova.
Sun's interior could hold over 1.3 million Earths.
The sun contains 99.85% of the mass in the solar system. At the Sun's core, the temperature is about about 27 million degrees Fahrenheit.
Someone who weighed 150 pounds on Earth, would weigh 4,200 pounds on the sun. Uranus Uranus is 2,870,972,200 km or 19.19 astronomical units away from the sunThe Revolution period of Uranus is 29.46 Earth years and the Rotation period is 0.44 Earth days (10.2 Earth hours). Uranus has 27 moons. If you weighed 120 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 106.6 pounds on Uranus. Uranus is one of the four Gas Giants. Uranus is the coldest planet in the solar system. Neptune Neptune’s Distance from the Sun is 4,498,252,900 km or 30.07 astronomical units.The Revolution period is 163.72 Earth years The Rotation period is 0.67 Earth days (19.1 Earth hours) Neptune has 8 moons: Naiad, Thalassa, Despina, Galatea, Larissa, Proteus, Triton, and Nereid. The Diameter of Neptune is 55,528 km (34,503.5 miles). If you weighed 120 pounds on Earth, then you would weigh 135 pounds on Neptune. Neptune has six rings which circle the planet. http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&safe=active&sa=N&biw=1440&bih=809&tbm=isch&tbnid=fUbr-dAbT8sIbM:&imgrefurl=http://www.redorbit.com/education/reference_library/space_1/solar_system/2574576/kuiper_belt/&docid=QFonMftnZ9f62M&imgurl=http://www.redorbit.com/media/uploads/2004/10/4_6800f2092e75e4b2d9813609957b23e52.jpg&w=1000&h=653&ei=k46BUIrnLM6I0QGC1oCYCQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=468&vpy=310&dur=589&hovh=181&hovw=278&tx=147&ty=99&sig=111473564408477911837&page=1&tbnh=145&tbnw=220&start=0&ndsp=24&ved=1t:429,r:7,s:0,i:91 Kuiper Belt Asteroid Belt The Asteroid belt is a belt made of rocks that can range from the size of a giant rock, to size of a pea. Asteroid belts are pretty much "left over" or "extra" materials that came from the formation of the solar system. Some interesting facts about the Asteroid Belt, are that they are very difficult to take a pictures of. Since they are usually formed with carbon, they absorb light, therefore making the satellites or telescopes almost impossible to take a picture of. It was said that a Kuiper Belt was formed from a debris of material left over from the formation that might orbit the Sun beyond Neptune. The Kuiper Belt is "a disk-shaped region of minor planets outside the orbit of Neptune."
-Kuiper Belt Objects are very dark, because they only reflect about 3% to 10% of the light that falls on them.
- Kuiper Belts have a wide range of surface colors, from gray to a red color.
-There is some evidence for water ice and different exotic ices on Kuiper Belts. Halley's Comet http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=llg&sa=N&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1920&bih=892&tbm=isch&tbnid=CTsWmnuZAFNlaM:&imgrefurl=http://sci.esa.int/science-e/www/object/index.cfm%3Ffobjectid%3D31876&docid=ISAZzA_3tJ2ChM&imgurl=http://sci.esa.int/science-e-media/img/84/Halley400.jpg&w=400&h=238&ei=adCBUKrJOo600QG_soG4AQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=1590&vpy=193&dur=1305&hovh=173&hovw=291&tx=202&ty=107&sig=103046432892274369804&page=1&tbnh=128&tbnw=212&start=0&ndsp=43&ved=1t:429,r:8,s:0,i:161 http://csep10.phys.utk.edu/astr161/lect/comets/halley.html Scientists think the Halley's Comet was formed by left over debris from the formation of the solar system, coming from objects like the Sun and different planets. Halley's Comet is a" periodical comet with an orbital period of about 76 years"
-The glow that you can see around Halley’s Comet is known as a coma. It happens when the comet gets close enough to the Sun and compounds like carbon dioxide and frozen water changes from a solid to gas.
-Comet Halley is known as a "periodic comet" (a.k.a. a short term comet). It is called that because the time it takes to orbit the Sun is less than 200 years.
-This Comet is made out of ice, dust and small rocky particles.

The Hale-Bopp was also formed from debris and left over rocky items.
-Hale-Bopp has a very large nucleus.
-Hale-Bopp is about as old as the sun (4.5 billion years)
-Hale-Bopp is located the outer solar system — Oort Cloud http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=i52&sa=N&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1920&bih=892&tbm=isch&tbnid=pjfYm6zpmcNKhM:&imgrefurl=http://www.spacetoday.org/Satellites/YugoWarSats.html&docid=oMNKUHmOst8gwM&imgurl=http://www.spacetoday.org/images/Sats/MilSats/DSCS_SatInSpaceLockheedMartin.jpg&w=398&h=315&ei=RemBUP-fJIWz0QGq1YGwCg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=715&vpy=189&dur=2252&hovh=200&hovw=252&tx=156&ty=94&sig=103046432892274369804&page=1&tbnh=147&tbnw=184&start=0&ndsp=45&ved=1t:429,r:3,s:0,i:146 Google Earth Satellite http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=4pN&sa=N&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1920&bih=892&tbm=isch&tbnid=LOy5nqvfzkzx4M:&imgrefurl=http://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2007/09/new_google_earth_satellite_launchin.html&docid=sF5QyptxCRlz_M&imgurl=http://www.gearthblog.com/images/images907/worldview.jpg&w=394&h=277&ei=eeqBUMitKqqp0AG4vIEI&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=759&vpy=340&dur=2630&hovh=188&hovw=268&tx=160&ty=105&sig=103046432892274369804&page=1&tbnh=141&tbnw=202&start=0&ndsp=43&ved=1t:429,r:12,s:0,i:147 http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.nasa.gov/centers/ames/images/content/175523main_jupiter-flyby-03hires.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.nasa.gov/centers/ames/multimedia/images/2007/jupiterflyby.html&h=2025&w=3000&sz=989&tbnid=SnENzYkPjk1B_M:&tbnh=90&tbnw=133&zoom=1&usg=__XvwUIkyEJcgGExN3viQp9QjMkeY=&docid=BHd4qQVhsVHJ7M&hl=en&sa=X&ei=meuBUIKCDKiy0AGL-YGoBw&ved=0CFwQ9QEwBQ&dur=2038 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jupiter http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&sa=N&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1920&bih=892&tbm=isch&tbnid=XQ0giDsns3n02M:&imgrefurl=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranus&docid=vhbEahfSkv7-UM&imgurl=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/3d/Uranus2.jpg/240px-Uranus2.jpg&w=240&h=240&ei=uOyBUMDpBsfo0gGqmICQCQ&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=301&sig=103046432892274369804&page=1&tbnh=134&tbnw=130&start=0&ndsp=50&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0,i:137&tx=86&ty=75 The Voyager 2 http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-PsxA3Ka7wgQ/UDL1uiuys2I/AAAAAAAAB4I/wnvRFQTWzbo/s1600/Voyager+2+deep+space+NASA.jpg http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/06/Neptune.jpg/240px-Neptune.jpg&imgrefurl=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neptune&h=162&w=165&sz=2&tbnid=C2Icfs5wgMpYpM&tbnh=0&tbnw=0&zoom=1&usg=__2Md2C5MjmGJVBJPxZwUOA9UrzdA=&docid=U78zpyot1bSegM&sa=X&ei=r-6BUOR-pvXSAZjHgZAF&ved=0CHgQ1Rc
