Transcript of Multiliteracies Solar System

Uranus Inner Solar Systems These 4 planets are known as Terrestial Planets.
They are made up of mostly rocks which forms a solid surface Days to orbit Sun: 365 days
Circumference size: 40,030.2 km
It is an ocean planet
Its mix of seasons atmospheres, weather and abundance of water makes it a special planet
Most important aspect, Earth has and encourages life
Earth's atmosphere not only gives us air to breathe, it also protects us from meteorites and harmful radiations from the Sun Outer Solar System Date of discovery: since prehistoric times
Distance from Earth:
approximately 591,000,000 km
Days to orbit Sun: 4332 days
Circumference size: 439,263.8 km
The largest planet in the Solar System
Made up of hydrogen and helium
The "Great Red Spot" - a hurricane almost 300 years old and big enough to fit three Earth's! These 4 planets are known as Gas Giants
They are mostly made out of gas and has no solid surfaces OUR SOLAR SYSTEM Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Date of discovery: as early as 265 B.C.
Distance from Earth: approximately 77,300,000 km
Days to orbit the Sun: 88 days
Circumference size: 15,329.1 km (0.3829 x Earth)
It is the smallest among the eight planets
The temperature of the surface changes greatly
One of the hottest and coldest planets! The Sun Date of discovery: as early as 150 A.D.
Distance from Earth:
approximately 149,597,890 km
Circumference size: 4,370,005.6 km
It is a star, a ball of glowing gases
The intense energy and heat from the
Sun gives life on Earth
The centre heats up to 15,700,000°C
The surface heats up to 5,500°C
That's 55 times hotter than boiling water! Date of discovery: as early as 650 A.D.
Distance from Earth: 41,840,000 km
Days to orbit Sun: 225 days
Circumference size: 38,024.6 km (0.9499 x Earth)
Surface is covered in toxic clouds which makes it the hottest planet
Also known as the 'greenhouse effect'
Known as Earth's "sister planet" because of their similar sizes
Brightest planet in the Earth's night sky because its clouds are good at reflecting the Sun's light Date of discovery: as early as 1576
Distance from Earth:
approximately 56,000,000 km
Days to orbit Sun: 687 days
Circumference size: 21,296.1 km
Scientists have discovered water through icy soil and thin clouds
Like Earth, it has seasons, weather, volcanoes, polar ice caps and canyons but it only has one third of Earth's gravity
Also known as the 'Red Planet' because of it's reddish appearance Saturn Date of discovery: as early as 1611
Distance from Earth:
approximately 1,197,351,936 km
Days to orbit Sun: 10759 days
Circumference size: 365,882.4 km
Most noticeable by its beautiful rings
The only planet that is less dense than water Date of discovery: 1781
Distance from Earth:
approximately 2,586,215,808 km
Days to orbit Sun: 84 years
Circumference size: 159,354.1 km
Ice giant of the solar system
It's blue tint comes from the Methane gas Neptune Date of discovery: 1846
Distance from Earth:
approximately 4,313,041,920 km
Days to orbit the Sun: 165 years
Circumference size: 154,704.6 km
The furthest planet from the Sun
It is the windiest planet in the Solar System Pluto Date of discovery: 1930
Distance from Earth:
approximately 4,296,948,480 km
Circumference size: 7,231.9 km
Was a planet up until 2006
It is now considered a Dwarf Planet History:
People believed that Earth was the centre of the universe - also known as Geocentrism
Scientists have since found out through the invention of the telescope, that the eight planets of our Solar System actually orbits the Sun and not the Earth
