Transcript of Solar System Travel Brochure ☼

Want an informational tour of home? Well Earth is really easy to describe; its temperature varies because it's on it's axis so we have seasons. It's atmosphere mainly consists of oxygen and carbon dioxide. Earth is the only planet that sustains life; it is believed that Mars once had life because it has ice on it. Earth may be dying. Due to mankind's pollution of the atmosphere, it is getting hot. Lands of ice are melting, and it is hurting life forms. If we really pitch in, we can save it. Earth is my favorite planet because without it... Well... I'd probably die. To be quaint, if you weigh 84 pounds, you'd still weigh 84 pounds because of obvious reasons. It takes 365 days to revolve around the sun. Solar System WOW!!! We have 8 planets, not including the dwarf planets Ok, well lets learn about them! Venus is the second planet from the sun. It gets to be around 446 degrees celsius during daytime which lasts about 243 Earth days so pack some sunscreen . A revolution is 225 days. Venus is basically a giant dustball, being the "Shrouded Planet" Its about the same size as Earth. Venus is the hottest of planets making it the perfect vacationing spot. You probably shouldnt bring ice cream. It will melt, along with your flesh. If you weigh 84 pounds on Earth then you will weigh 76.1 pounds on Venus. It's orbit is almost circular whereas most planets have an elliptical orbit. It's about 107 K.M. away from the sun at perihileon. Or .718 AU. Whichever you prefer. Its a difficult planet because unlike all the others Venus rotates Counter-Clockwise. Isn't that neat? While it is possible that Venus had natural sattelites in the past it does not have any currently. It would take about a minute to get there from Earth on Average. GIRLS ARE NOT FROM VENUS!!! It has been visited by more than 20 spacecrafts. BIELA? You know Comets? And Cupids? And Donnors and Blitzens? Dashers, and Dancers and Prancers and Vixons? But do you recall what a comet is? It's like a giant ball of ice. Awesome Right? Well Biela is a comet that was discovered in 1852 but has broken up now. Comets come around every once in a while. Mars Mars is our neighbor planet, it is believed that it may have once, or still does have life on it. Isn't that interesting? We may not be the only ones! Its atmosphere is mainly carbon dioxide. Phobos and Deimos are its moons, which are thought to be captured asteroids. If you weigh 84 pounds here, you weigh 31.6 pounds on Mars. Days on Mars are similar to days on Earth. They are 24 hours 39 minutes and 35 seconds long. So a 7-day and 7-night trip would last a little over a week. It is very red, what more can I say? MOON The moon revolves around us, Earth! Earth Mercury. Suppose for these purposes 7 Earth days and 7 Earth nights. Well every Mercury day is 58 days and 15 hours so if we add that up.... 406 + 4= 410. Add 9... Ok your total would be 410 Mercury days and 9 hours! You would be there for 4 Mercury years (revolutions) . On Mercury a year is only 88 days! That means a revolution every 88 days! At average, because of its severe eliptical shape, it is about 58 million Kilometers or .39 A.U. another reason to come is dramatic loss in weight! I, for instance weigh 84 pounds on earth, but on Mercury I weigh 31.7 pounds. This is Mercury's atmospheric condition:
O2: 42%
Na: 29%
H2: 22%
He: 6%
K: 0.5%
When its facing the sun it can be 698 degrees! Good time for some tanning! when its not facing the sun it can be chilly! 238 degrees! Better pack a jacket kids! It will take us about 26 minutes to get there so you better bring something to do for the trip. There are no seasons on Mercury. Both Earth and Mercury were created about 4.5. The only known space craft to come close to Mercury was the Mariner 10 and it only mapped about 45% of the planet. It's to close to the sun to keep or capture any sattelites. Mercury Venus Lets name them! Jupiter Jupiter has over 60 moons probably due to its high gravitatonal force. We don't recommend a trip to Jupiter because it will be extremely tedious to remove the shuttle from Jupiter (if it doesn't get crushed by gravity). It is very stormy, which is why it has the big red spot; it's basically a hurricane. A 7 day 7 night trip would last a little over a day because a rotation on Jupiter is 9.9 hours, and a year is about 12 years on Earth. If you weigh 84 pounds here on Earth, you weigh 198.5 on Jupiter. It is about 17 minutes away with our shuttles. It's about 779 million KM or 5.2 A.U. away from the sun. It's like a rainforest except there's no rain or oxygen. We are only able to have sattelites on Jupiter Saturn Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system. It is famous for its rings and named after Saturn, the Titan. Saturn's crumbly rings are quite amazing; it is almost like a personal asteroid belt (because all the hottest planets are wearing them). You would weigh about 89.3 pounds on Mars if you weighed 84 pounds here because of the similar gravity forces. It is mostly comprised of hydrogen and helium. It's a lovely place, just bring the basic vacation needs like toothpaste, oxygen, clothes, and sunscreen. Oh yeah, and food. Saturn is one of the coolest planets. It is 9.05 A.U. away from the sun or 1.35 billion K.M. Our shuttles can get there in 3 hours. Uranus Uranus is a fascinating planet that is believed to have been hit by an asteroid or large meteor knocking it on its side, which is why it spins on its side. Uranus is the 7th planet from the sun. Uranus is far from Earth. It'd take an hour to get there. The distance varies because of the elliptical shape of orbit as with all planets. It's about -355 degrees Fahrenheit so you may want to pack a light jacket. It is named for the Greek deity, father of Kronos/Saturn. It has icy rings, and it's atmosphere is mainly comprised of hydrogen. Little known fact: if you shrunk the Solar System to the size of your body, your head being the sun, then Uranus would be exactly where you expect it to be. Sun Neptune Neptune is the 8th planet in the solar system and is named for the Greek god of the sea for its blue color. It is 60x larger than Earth. A day is 16 hours, so a 7 day 7night trip would last more than half a week. A year on Neptune is about 160 earth years. Neptune is rather slow; it hasn't even had a revolution since we discovered it. This planet experiences seasons just like Earth. There have been several attempts to probe Neptune, some were successful. The Kuiper Belt The Kuiper belt is somewhat like an asteroid belt. Several comets stay in a belt around our solar system. It is very interesting. Only our star may be called "The Sun"; therefore, it is just as proper to say that We revolve around Sun instead of THE Sun. Solar System 0 0 _ - - U I
