Transcript of Our Solar System

BY: TOBY OUR SOLAR SYSTEM WHAT IS OUR SOLAR SYSTEM MADE OF? MORE ON PLANET FORMATION Planet Mecury Planet Jupiter Planet Earth Planet Uranus WHY IS DISCOVERING WATER ON OTHER PLANETS IMPORTANT? Well scientist believe that it is made of a cloud of dust and gas.
They think that the dust and gas collapsed on their own gravity, it began moving in a giant circle that made a spinning cloud. In that cloud a star was formed attracting more and more dust and that became the sun. Smaller clumps of dust and gas collapsed together and formed planets, "minor planets",moons,comets and asteroids. Did you notice that the four inner planets are smaller than the four outer planets?
Facts:Because the inner planets are much closer to the Sun, they are located where the solar winds are stronger. As a result, the dust and gas from the inner Solar System was blown away much more quickly than it was from the outer Solar System. This gave the planets of the inner Solar System less time to grow. Characteristics: On the bright side, it's a face melting 840°C!
On the dark side it's -275°C!
Diameter: 4878 km
Distance to the sun: 57 909 175 km
Satellites: None Characteristics : Earth speeds through space at 66,700m/h.
It weighs up to 5,972,000,000,000 billion
Diameter:12,713.5 km
Distance to the Sun:149701178.88 km Characteristics: Jupiter is 1,300 times bigger than earth,
rotates faster than any planet in the Solar
system! One day is only 10hours. It has a
GREAT RED SPOT. It's a storm that has
been raging for at least 300 years.
Diameter: 142 800 km
Distance to the sun: 778 412 020 km
Satellites: 63 Characteristics: It's the coldest planet. 2 billion miles away
from the sun. The surface tempurture is about
Diameter: 51 800 km
Distance to the sun: 2 870 972 200 km Planet Venus Characteristics: It's the stinkiest planet .Blame it on their hazy
clouds of sulfuric acid.
Diameter: 12 104 km
Distance to the sun: 108 208 930 km
Satellites: None Planet Mars Characteristics: The gravity on Mars id only a third of that
on Earth. There is a martian volcano
named Mount Olympus which is three
times taller than Mount Everest.
Diameter: 6794 km
Distance to the sun:227 936 640 km
Satellites: 2 Planet Saturn Characteristics: Saturn has thousands or ringlets made of
billions of ice and rock, some as small as a
grain of sugar or as big as a car. It spins very
fast, so fast it makes you dizzy thinking about it.
Diameter: 120 000 km
Distance to the sun: 1 426 725 400 km Planet Neptune Characteristics: (1848)first seen in telescope, 16h a
day,11 moons, 165# of Earth years in
a Neptune year. In 2010 Neptune
made it around the sun for the first
time since discovery.
Diameter: 49 600 km
Distance to the sun:4 498 252 900 km - So that we don't dehydrate
-So that we live
-We can swim
-We can wash clothes and dishes..........
c(")(") Comments:
Water is definitely essential because if we don't drink it, we will become dehydrated and die. Plants need it, and most plants are food, which we need also to live. Animals need it, which we need as food also. If you think about it, everything and anything that's been man-made or earth-made goes back to water.
