Transcript of Stacy A.
The temperature inside the sun can reach up to 15 million degrees celsius
The sun is so big that one million earths could fit in it
Light from the sun takes eight minutes to reach earth
A year in Murcury is 88 days.
Unlike the Earth and most other planets Mercury only turns very slowly on its axis, taking 59 days to complete the turn from day to night.
Standing on Mercury's surface at its closest point to the sun, the sun would appear more than three times larger than it does on Earth.
Venus is surrounded by clouds consisting of mercury, ferric chloride hydrocarbons and sulphuric acid. These clouds create the most corrosive acid rain found anywhere in our solar system.
The clouds are so thick that little light even reaches the surface. The light that does reach the surface is converted to heat and can not escape the atmosphere making Venus the hottest planet at around 500 Degrees Celsius.
Venus has many, many volcanoes. We don't know for sure, but it is possible that Venus has more volcanoes than any of the other planets in our Solar System.

Mars’ red color is due to iron oxide, also known as rust, and has the consistency of talcum powder. Literally, the metallic rocks on Mars are rusting.
Mars has water — today, it is accepted that Mars had abundant water very early in its history.
Observations by the NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter have revealed possible flowing water during the warmest months on Mars.
Mars’ moons were named after the twin brothers of fear and terror in Greek mythology.
The asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars is thought to be the result of a planet failing to form between the two planets, due largely to the strong gravitational pull of Jupiter pulling the rocks apart.
It is estimated that just one metal-rich asteroid could contain more metal than has ever been used by humanity.
Asteroids are as old as the solar system itself, about 4.6 billion years of age. They formed in the violent and turbulent nebula that gave birth to the Sun and planets.
Jupiter is really massive. The mass of Jupiter is 318 times the mass of the Earth.
Jupiter sure moves quickly. In fact, the planet only takes about 10 hours to complete a full rotation.
The Great Red Spot on Jupiter is one of its most familiar features. And it looks like the spot has been around for almost 350 years.
The rings are made up of millions of ice crystals, some as big as houses and others as small as specks of dust.
Storm winds race around the atmosphere at 800kmp/h.
Saturn’s rings seem to disappear about every 14 years. Scientists believe that the rings seem to disappear when Saturn is tilted directly in line with Earth.
Uranus was the first planet discovered by telescope.
While known about for centuries, Uranus was thought to be a star until 1781.
Uranus is the coldest planet
in the entire solar system
Neptune's moon, Triton, is slowly getting closer to Neptune. Eventually, it will get so close that it may get torn apart by Neptune's gravity and possibly form rings more spectacular than Saturn's.
Since its discovery in 1846, Neptune has completed only one full orbit of the Sun. In fact, it takes 165 years for the planet to go around the Sun.
In Roman mythology, Neptune is the god of the sea.
Pluto is named after the Roman god of the underworld.
Pluto is no longer a planet beause it has to be able to pull in or sling out smaller objects but pluto cannot do that so it is considered a dwarf planet
Pluto takes the longest time of the eight planets (248 Earth years) to orbit around the sun.
