Transcript of Jonathon L. (Solar System)
The Temperature of the sun 5,500
The sun is 93 million miles away from Earth
1 million Earths can fit inside the sun
If you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would only weigh 37 pounds on Mercury.
The surface of Mercury is heavily cratered, looking much like our moon.
It takes less than 88 Earth days for Mercury to orbit around the sun.
It takes 243 Earth days to rotate once on its axis. The planet’s orbit around the Sun takes 225 Earth days, compared to the Earth’s 365.
The mass of Venus is 4,867,320,000,000,000 billion kg (0.815 x Earth)
Venus is the second planet from the sun behind Mercury.
Earth is the only planet that has life on it.
Earth is the only planet not named after a
Earth is considered to be the biggest
planet out of the terrestrial planets.
Mars is the fourth planet from the sun behind Earth.
Mars was named after Roman god of war.
Mars was often described as the “Red Planet” due to its reddish appearance.
Earth and Mars have equal land mass.
Jupiter is the 5th planet from the sun coming after the asteroid belt.
Jupiter is 2 and a half bigger times bigger than all the other planets in the solar system combined.
Jupiter is made primarily of gases and is therefore known as a “gas giant”.
Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system behind Jupiter.
Saturn is a gas giant with an average radius about nine times that of Earth.
Saturn's interior is hot (12000 K at the core) and Saturn radiates more energy into space than it receives from the Sun.
Uranus became the first planet discovered with the use of a telescope.
Uranus is tipped over on its side with an axial tilt of 98 degrees.
Uranus makes one trip around the Sun every 84 Earth years.
Neptune is the most distant planet from the Sun.
Only 1 spacecraft has flown to Neptune. In 1989, the Voyager 2 spacecraft swept past the planet.
Neptune makes one trip around the Sun every 164.8 Earth years.
Pluto was discovered to be the second closest dwarf planet to the sun.
Pluto was once discovered to be the ninth planet
In dwarf planets Pluto is the second largest behind Eris the most massive dwarf planet.
