Transcript of Solar System Project

Asteroids are minor planets, especially those of the inner Solar System.The larger ones have also been called planetoids.Asteroids are minor planets. They are mostly in the inner solar system. Most asteroids lie in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
The Planets
By: Samuel G., Jack S., Charlie F., Noah G., James R.

Mercury is 28.5 million miles from the Sun.
Their is no life on mercury. It is not possible from the cold nights and hot days.
The radiation will be enough to kill you.
It is made of rocks with a huge iron core which makes up a large part of its interior.
The core takes nearly 3/4 of the planets diameter. Mercury is 35,980,000 miles from the sun.
Mercury has no moon and rotates every 58d 15h 30m.
This revolution will take about 88 days for Mercury to orbit the Sun.
The diameter 3,032 miles (4,879 km)
Mars is fourth planet from the Sun and the second smallest planet in the Solar System.
Named after the Roman God of War, it is often called "Red Planet" because the iron oxide seen it surface.
Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features similar both of the impact craters of the Moon and the volcanoes, valleys, deserts, and polar ice caps of Earth.
The core of Mars is made up of mainly iron and sulfur.
Mars has two moons
It is 141 million miles away from the Sun.
Mars takes 686.971 Earth days to orbit the Sun
Little is know about the Martian Core, it is believed to be mostly iron.
Mars' diameter is 4,212 miles
Comets are icy balls that release gas or dust. They contain dust ice and carbon dioxide. The astronomical symbol for comets is consisting of a small disc with three hairlike extensions Recently discovered main belt comets form a distinct class, orbiting in more circular orbits within the asteroid belt.
The Oort Cloud
Objects in the Oort cloud are either ice, water, ammonia, or methane. There is a inner Oort cloud and the oort cloud.
The Asteroids
Asteroids are minor planets. They are mostly in the inner solar system. Most asteroids lie in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
Venus is the third planet from the Sun. it is also the hottest planet.
On average, the distance to Venus from the sun is 67 million miles away from the Sun
It takes 224.7 Earth Days to orbit the Sun.
It has no moons.
Venus is made up of a central iron core and a rocky mantle, similar to the composition of Earth. Its atmosphere is mainly made up of carbon dioxide (96%) and nitrogen (3%), with small amounts of other gases.
It has a similar size, mass, density and gravity, as well as a very similar chemical composition.
Venus is a terrestrial planet and is sometimes called Earth's "sister planet" because of their similar size, gravity, and bulk composition
Venus' diameter is 7,521 miles.
Earth is the only planet with life.
It is 92,960,000 miles from the sun.
1 day or 1 rotation is 24 hours.
Earth has one moon, its made out of many things .
The cores mantle is made up of rock, It is the only planet with water and air.
The diameter of the earth 7,918 miles.
The characteristics of earth are there is life water and it is inhabited
period of revolution 365.242199 solar days
Saturn is the 6Th planet from the sun.
It is different because of its rings.
Saturn has a total of 60 moons.
Saturn rotates normally.
It has a diameter of 120536 km .
Saturn Is made up of mainly gas.
Saturn takes 10,759 Earth days to orbit the Sun.
Saturn is named after the roman god of agriculture.
Its a gas giant.
Saturn's mostly composed of a core of iron, nickel, and rock (silicon and oxygen compounds), surrounded by a deep layer of metallic hydrogen, an intermediate layer of liquid hydrogen and liquid helium and an outer gaseous layer.

Neptune is the eighth and farthest planet from the Sun in the Solar System.
It is the fourth-largest planet by diameter and the third-largest by mass.
• Among the gaseous planets in the solar system, Neptune is the most dense.
Neptune is 17 times the mass of Earth and is slightly more massive than its near-twin Uranus, which is15 times the mass of Earth but not as dense. On average, Neptune orbits the Sun at a distance of 30.1 AU, approximately 30 times the Earth–Sun distance.
Neptune is 2,771,087,000 miles from the Sun.
It takes Neptune 164 Earth Years to rotate the Sun.
Neptune has 13 moons
Neptune's diameter is 30,599 miles
A meteoroid is a small rocky or metallic object in space. Meteoroids are no bigger than a pebble. Around 15,000 tonnes of meteoroids, micro meteoroids and different forms of space dust enter Earth's atmosphere each year.
Jupiter is the 5th planet and the largest planet of all.
It is made of mostly gas.
It has a hurricane that's been raging since the beginning of the planet.
It rotates normally.
It completes a revolution in 10,832.327 Earth days.
It has 28 moons.
Jupiter has no life it was also named after the ruler of the roman gods it is made of hydrogen and helium 234f First Record: 7th or 8th century BC Recorded By: Babylonian astronomers
The diameter of Jupiter is 86,881 miles.
Is the 7th planet from the sun. It is the 2nd coldest planet in the solar system.
It has the third largest planetary radius. It has the fourth largest mass, Uranus interior is mostly ice and rock.
Uranus is 1,738,939,400 miles from the Sun.
The cool thing is that Uranus rotates on its side
diameter is 31,518 miles (50,724 km)
period of revolution 30685 Earth days
period of rotation 17h 14m
moons Puck, Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania, and Oberon
There is 7 moons on Uranus
