Transcript of The Solar System

Mercury: The Closest Planet to the Sun The Sun The Sun is a vast, fiery ball of gases. The temperature at bottom of the photosphere is 6600 K. The temperature at top of photosphere 4400 K.
The sun's gravity holds the solar system together. If you removed the effect of solar gravity and all the planets, asteroids, moons, and comets would fly off into space.
The Sun's diameter is about 900,000 miles. Link: enchantedlearning.com The Solar System Created By:Anna Sun Venus The Second Planet Closest to the Sun Earth
Our Home The earth has one moon called Luna. Mercury is the first planet from the sun.
The diameter of Mercury is around 3000 miles.
Mercury is about 48 million miles from the earth.
The Brightness can go from -2.3 to 5.7.

Mercury has a very thin atmosphere which makes the temperature so low or so high. the lowest is -300°F (-180°C) and the highest is 800°F (430°C).
The average temperature is 332.33° F.

Gravity on Mercury is 38% of the gravity here on Earth. So if a person wieghed 100 pounds on the earth then he would lose a quick 62 pounds just by landing on the surface of mercury.
Mercury spins around 87.97 earth days to spin around the sun.
One day on Mercury (24 hours) is longer than one year on Mercury in earth days.
The surface compisition of Mercury is 42% Oxygen , 29% Sodium , 22% Hydrogen , 6% Helium , 0.5% Potassium , possible traces of others.
Mercury doesn't have any satellites or rings.
Fun Fact!
Half of Mercury was never seen before 2008! Venus is the Second planet from the sun
The diameter of Venus is around
12,103.6 kilometers
Venus is about 25 million miles from the earth.
Venus rotates 1 full cicle in 23.9345 earth hours
A year on Venus would only be 224.7 earth days
The surface materials on Venus is basaltic rock and altered materials
Venus has an very compact atmosphere, consisting mainly of carbon dioxide and a small amount of nitrogen
The average temperature on Venus is 867.2 fahrenheit
There are no moons or rings
The Gravity is 90% compare to Earth which means if you weighed 100 pounds on earth, you would weigh 90 pounds in Venus
Only the Sun and the Moon are brighter than Venus beacause it's brightness can range between -3.8 to -4.6.
Fun Fact!
Venus is always brighter than the brightest stars in the solar system! Earth is the third planet from the sun.
The diameter of Earth is 12,756 kilometers.
There are 0 millimeters from earth to earth.
Earth's atmosphere is 79% nitrogen, 20% oxygen, and 1% other gases.
One Rotation is 24 hours
One spin around the sun 365 1/4 days.
The temperature in the earth is varied by where you live in the earth. Where we live right now, the average temperature is about 50°F
Earth has one moon canned Luna
Earth is 71% covered in water and the rest is made out of alot of rocks and dirt
The gravity on the Earth is 9.8 meters/second2
Fun Fact!
Earth doesn’t actually take 24 hours to rotate on its axis
It actually takes 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4 seconds, I'm not sure about milliseconds though...
We use 24 hours because we're all too lazy to keep track of the exact time! Mars The Fourth
Planet Closest to the Sun Links:
pds.nasa.gov The fourth planet in the solor system
The Diameter of Mars is 6,787 km
The average distance from earth to mars is 225 million km
One day on mars is 1.026 days on earth
One year on mars would be 686.98 days on earth
The average temperature is -81 F
The Atmosphere is made from 95% Carbon Dioxide, 3% Nitrogen, and about 2% Argon
Mars has 2 tiny moons called Phobos and Deimos
Mars gravity is 38% of Earth which means that if you weighed 100 pounds on the earth, you would be 38 pounds on Mars
The surface of Mars is made out of mostly iron-rich basaltic rock (an igneous rock). Mars has a thin crust, similar to Earth's.
Brightness level -2.91 through 1.84

Fun Fact!
Mars has the largest mountain in the SOLAR SYSTEM! It rises up to 27km!
Mars weight is 11% of earth's weight which means that about 9 Mars could fit in the Earth! Helpful information about the solar system at:
universetoday.com Jupiter The Fifth
Planet Closest to the Sun Fifth planet in the Solar System
The diameter of Jupiter is 142,984 km
The Rotation Period is 9.8 hours or .41 earth days
The Revolution period is 11.86 earth years
The Average temperature is 62.23 degrees fahrenheit
The Atmosphere is made about 90% hydrogen, 10% helium,
and .07% methane
Jupiter has 62 known moons and a faint ring
Jupiter and Earth are at least 628,743,036 million km and
at the most 928,081,020 million km apart
There is no real surface on Jupiter
The gravity on Jupiter is 254% compare to earth which means
if you weighed 100 pounds on earth, on Jupiter you would weigh 254 pounds
Fun Fact
Jupiter's complex atmosphere includes the "Great Red Spot", a 300 year old storm that is almost the size of three Earth's. Sixth planet from the sun
The diameter of Saturn is 120,660 km
The rotation period is 0.44 days (10.2 Earth hours)
The revolution period 29.46 earth years
The average temperature is -285 F
Saturn's atmosphere is made of about 97% hydrogen, 3% helium, and .05% methane
Saturn has 53 named satellites
The distance between Saturn and Earth are 1.2 billion km
The gravity on Saturn is 1.08 if Earth equals 1 which means a person who weighs 100 pounds on Earth would weigh 108 pounds on Saturn
There is no known surface so far
Fun Fact
There could be life on Saturn
Saturn has only been visited 4 times by spacecraft Uranus The Seventh
Planet In The Solar System
The seventh planet from the sun
The diameter of Uranus is 51,118 km
The rotation period is 0.72 (17.9 Earth hours)
The revolution period is 30,685 earth days (84 Earth years)
The average temperature on Uranus is about -350°F
The atmosphere is made out of about 83% hydrogen, 15% helium, 2% methane
Uranus has 27 moons and 13 rings
Uranus and Earth are apart by 2.57 billion km
The surface of Uranus is an 'ocean' made mostly of hydrogen, helium, and water, with small amounts of ammonia and methane.
Uranus's gravity is 91% of Earth's gravity which means, if you weighed 100 pounds on Earth you would weigh 91 pounds on Uranus
Fun Fact
Summer on Uranus lasts one long day – 42 years
Uranus has only been visited once before Saturn The Sixth planet in the solar system Neptune The last
Planet in the Solar System
Last planet in the Solar System
Neptune's diameter is 49,528 km
Neptune's Rotation Period is 0.67 (19.1 hours)
The Revolution Period is 60,190 (164.8 Earth years)
The average temperature in Uranus is 48 K
The Atmosphere is made of 74% hydrogen, 25% helium, 1% methane
Neptune has 13 moons 16 rings
Neptune and Earth's Distance is 4.4 billion km
Neptune is entirely made out of gas so there is no surface
The gravity on Neptune the gravity is 119% compare to earth which means, if a person weighed 100 pounds on earth they would weigh 119 pounds on Neptune
Fun Fact
Neptune is the coldest Planet in the Solar System but, it's Moon Triton, is even colder. This is a Moon Called Luna Which Orbits The Third Planet in the Solar System, Earth. Some scientists think that the lunar core is made of metallic iron, with small amounts of sulfur and nickel.
Fun Facts
The moon was created by the earth
The moon is slowly drifting away
The Moon is the 5th largest natural satellite in the Solar System
Only 12 people have ever stepped onto the moon The Earth's Moon: Luna The Solar System
