Transcript of Copy of Our ImPREZIve Solar System

Neptune was discovered by Urbain Le Verrier, John Couch Adams, and Johann Galle on the 23rd of September, 1846. Neptune It is the last planet from the sun. It is the 5th smallest (4th biggest) planet, not including dwarf planets. Neptune's gases are methane, helium, hydrogen, and hydrocarbons. Planet Facts Voyager 2 was the only space probe to visit Neptune. The use of instruments to observe and explore Neptune and its moons is required. Without instruments we would not be able to see or know anything about them.

Its Greek god is Poseidon (the god of water).

Because Neptune is so far from the sun, its outer atmosphere is one of the coldest places in the solar system. More Interesting Facts Distance in space is measured in AU's (astronomical units) and light years (the distance that light travels in one year). Distances from the sun to different planets/objects in the solar system are also measured in miles or kilometers.

Neptune is approximately 30.1 AU from the sun. Distance in Space Space probes go to planets and gather data for scientists to look at, and sample. Scientists can control space probes with computers here on earth. Satellites are also run by computers. Computers Centuries ago people thought the earth was the center of the universe. When telescopes were invented people realized that the sun was the center of the solar system. With telescopes further planets and moons were discovered.
On November 26, 2011 NASA sent a land rover called Curiosity to Mars. Curiosity's goal is to investigate the climate, geology, and microbial life on Mars. The rover has microscopes and cameras.
Satellites around earth and other planets gather information and send it back to earth Technology Before we had any technology our knowledge of the solar system was very basic. When telescopes were invented we learned more about the solar system. As telescopes became stronger, shuttles were sent to space, and satellites launched, we learned even more about the solar system. As technology increases so does our knowledge of the solar system. Understanding of our Solar System Cain, Fraser. "Neptune's Distance From the Sun." Universe Today. November 9, 2009. web.
