Transcript of Izabella A. (Solar System)

The light from the Sun reaches in around 8 minutes

The Sun's core is around 13600000 degrees Celsius
The Sun
Mercury
Mercury has a very low surface gravity
Mercury has no atmosphere which means there is no wind or weather to speak of.
Mercury has no atmosphere which means there is no wind or weather to speak of.
Venus
Venus has no atmosphere which means there is no wind or weather to speak of.
Venus features no liquid water.
Venus is surrounded by clouds consisting of mercury, ferric chloride hydrocarbons and sulfuric acid. These clouds create the most corrosive acid rain found anywhere in our solar system.

Earth
It is the only planet that has liquid water on its surface.
The Earth is fragile. Its surface is split into plates (tectonic plates) which float on a rocky mantle – the layer between the surface of the earth, its crust, and its hot liquid core. The inside of the Earth is active and earthquakes, volcanoes and mountain building takes place along the boundaries of the tectonic plates.
It is the only planet in the solar system that has life.
Mars
Mars is nicknamed the red planet because it is covered with rust-like dust. Even the atmosphere is a pinkish red, colored by tiny particles of dust thrown up from the surface.
Mars experiences violent dust storms which continually change its surface.
Mars has many massive volcanoes and is home to Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in our solar system, it stands 21km high and is 600km across the base.

Mars
Mars experiences violent dust storms which continually change its surface.
Mars has many massive volcanoes and is home to Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in our solar system, it stands 21km high and is 600km across the base.
Mars has a very thin atmosphere made mostly of carbon dioxide. It is not thick enough to trap the sun's heat like Venus, so the planet is very cold. Temperatures range from -120 Degrees Celsius on winter nights to 25 Degrees Celsius in the summer.
Jupiter
Jupiter is the largest planet in our Solar system. It is so big that more than 1300 Earths could fit inside it.
Thick, colorful clouds of deadly poisonous gases surround Jupiter. The quick spinning of the planet whips up the atmosphere, creating the bands around the planet.
If you were to descend into Jupiter, the thin, cold atmosphere becomes thicker and hotter, gradually turning into a thick, dark fog. In the blackness about 1000km down the pressure squeezes the atmosphere so hard that it becomes like liquid.
Asteroid Belt
The Asteroid Belt is located in an area of space between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
The belt is about 1 AU thick.
Asteroid Belt objects are made of rock and stone. Some are solid objects, while others are orbiting “rubble piles”.
Saturn
Saturn is the second largest planet in our solar system and is another gas giant.
Saturn has a small rocky core covered with liquid gas.
It is surrounded by a system of rings that stretch out into space for thousands of kilometers.
Uranus
Uranus spins lying on its side (like a barrel), this is perhaps due to a large collision early in its formation.

Uranus was the first planet discovered by telescope.
Since Uranus takes 84 Earth years to go around the sun, this means that each of its poles is in daylight for 42 years and in darkness for the next 42.
Neptune
Neptune is a large planet, nearly four times the size of Earth.
Neptune suffers the most violent weather in our Solar System.
Storms have been spotted swirling around its surface and freezing winds that blow about ten times faster than hurricanes on Earth make it the windiest planet.
Pluto
Discovered in 1930, Pluto is the second closest dwarf planet to the Sun and was at one point classified as the ninth planet.
Pluto is also the second most massive dwarf planet with Eris being the most massive
Pluto is named after the Greek god of the underworld
It makes up around 99.86% of the Solar System’s mass.
