It is made primarily of gases and is therefore known as a “gas giant”. Jupiter Planet Profile Mass: 1,898,130,000,000,000,000 billion kg (317.83 x Earth) Equatorial Diameter: 142,984
Ben Wonnacott's prezi about space
The Moon (or Luna) is the Earth’s only natural satellite and was formed 4.6 billion years ago around some 30–50 million years after the formation of the solar system. The Moon is in synchronous rotation with Earth meaning the same side is always facing the Earth. The first unmanned mission to the Moon was in 1959 by the Soviet Lunar Program with the first manned landing being Apollo 11 in 1969.
Circumference at Equator: 10,917.0 km
Diameter: 3,475 km
Mass: 73,476,730,924,573,500 million kg (0.0123 x Earth)
Orbits: The Earth
Average Distance from Earth: 384,400 km
Length of Orbit: 27.3 Earth days
Surface Temperature: -233 to 123 °C
Since the first spacecraft was sent to Mars was launched in 1960, there have been at least 68 missions that have been launched to the Red Planet or have flown by it on their way to other solar system bodies. If you count orbiting telescopes such as Hubble Space Telescope that have looked at Mars
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the most distant that can be seen with the naked eye. It is best known for its fabulous ring system that was discovered in 1610 by the astronomer Galileo Galilei.
