Click anywhere & add an idea Ancient astronomers named Saturn after the Roman God of agriculture.
A 100 pound object on Earth would weight 116 pounds on Saturn.
Saturn has the lowest density of all the planets in the solar system. It is so light that it could actually float on water if there was an ocean big enough to hold it.
It takes about 29.46 Earth years for Saturn to orbit around our sun.
Saturn's rings are made up of billions of pieces of rocks and dust.
Saturn Facts
Ancient astronomers named Saturn after the Roman God of agriculture.
A 100 pound object on Earth would weight 116 pounds on Saturn.
Saturn has the lowest density of all the planets in the solar system. It is so light that it could actually float on water if there was an ocean big enough to hold it.
It takes about 29.46 Earth years for Saturn to orbit around our sun.
Saturn's rings are made up of billions of pieces of rocks and dust.
Saturn has over 30 known Satellites, but many of them are small and faint.
Saturn has no solid surface. It is a giant ball of gas, but it does have a solid inner core.
The atmosphere of Saturn comprises mostly of Hydrogen and Helium.
Galileo was the first astronomer to observe Saturn's rings; he thought they were large Satellites.
Pluto Facts
The ex-planet was named after the Roman God of the underworld.
The color of Pluto is reddish-brown.
Pluto has an enormous moon for its size, Charon. It is more than half the size of Pluto.
The sun would look like a bright star from Pluto, since they are so far away from each other.
Pluto's thin atmosphere contains traces of methane, nitrogen and carbon dioxide.
Neptune Facts
Neptune was named after the Roman sea God.
Neptune is so far away that it took the space probe Voyager 2, 12 years to reach it.
Neptune is the stormiest planet. The winds there can blow up to 1,240 miles per hour, that is three times as fast as Earth's Hurricanes.
The planet has a system of thin dark rings but they are incomplete rings and are best described as arcs.
Neptune is a sea blue color due to the methane gas in its atmosphere.
Neptune once had a great dark spot similar to Jupiter.
Neptune only receives 1/900 of the solar energy that reaches Earth.
Neptune has its own heat source, it emits a quantity of energy 2.7 times greater than it receives.
Neptune has 8 known moons.
Neptune has a rocky core.
Neptune is 30 times farther from the sun as is the Earth.
It goes around the sun once every 165 Earth Years.
The atmosphere is made up of Hydrogen, Helium and Methane.
Earth Facts
Earth is the only planet whose English name does not derive from Greek/Roman mythology. In Roman Mythology, the goddess of the Earth was Tellus - the fertile soil (Greek: Gaia, terra mater - Mother Earth).
The Earth is estimated to be 4.5 billion years old. It travels through space at 660,000 miles per hour.
The oldest rocks in the world, the so-called St. Peter and St. Paul stones in the Atlantic Ocean, are 4 billion years old.
The Earth weighs 6,588,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons.
The earth rotates on its axis more slowly in March than in September.
If the Earth were compressed to a sphere with a 2-inch diameter, its surface would be as smooth as a billiard ball's.
The temperature of the Earth's interior increases by 1 degree every 60 feet down.
If the world were to become totally flat and the oceans distributed themselves evenly over the earth's surface, the water would be approximately 2 miles deep at every point.
Glaciers occupy 5.8 million square miles, or 10 percent of the world's land surface, an area as large as South America.
The world is not round. It is an oblate spheroid, flattened at the poles and bulging at the equator.
Mars Facts
Mars was named after the bloody red God of war of the ancient Romans.
Mars is red because it is rusty. There is a lot of iron in the soil, and the air on Mars has made it turn red-just like rusty iron on Earth.
One of Mars' moons, Phobos, is moving closer and closer to Mars. Scientists think that one day it will crash into Mars.
Mars has the tallest Volcano in the Solar System named Olympus Mons and it is 15 miles high which is three times the height of Mount Everest.
Like Earth, the poles of Mars are covered in ice. The ice becomes thicker in the winter.
Mars orbits the sun every 687 Earth days.
The Martian “day” is about half a hour longer than Earth.
At its brightest, Mars outshines every other planet apart from Venus.
The thin atmosphere of Mars is made of mostly carbon dioxide.
A hundred pound man would weight 38 pounds on Mars.
Valleys and Canyons on Mars suggest that the planet once had large amounts of surface water.
In winter, nighttime temperatures on Mars can drop as low as -191°F.
Jupiter Facts

Ancient Astronomers named Jupiter after the king of the Roman Gods.
If you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 264 pounds on Jupiter.
Jupiter has a mass 318 times greater than the Earth's and a diameter that is 11 times larger.
The mass of Jupiter is 70% of the total mass of all the other planets in our Solar System.
Jupiter's volume is large enough to contain 1,300 planets the size of Earth.
Jupiter rotates faster than any planet in the Solar System.
It rotates so quickly that the days are only 10 hours long.
But it takes 12 Earth years for Jupiter to complete an orbit around the sun.
The great red spot on Jupiter is a storm that has been going on for over 300 years.
You can fit 100 Earths into Jupiter's great red spot.
Jupiter has the biggest moon in the Solar System, Ganymede. It is even bigger than Mercury and Pluto.
Jupiter has a ring just like Saturn and Uranus.
The Planet has over 60 known satellites (moons) but most of them are extremely small and faint.
Jupiter is covered by an ocean of hydrogen with a sludge-like consistency.
Uranus Facts
Uranus is named after the Greek God of the sky in latin.
Because of the strange way it spins, nights on some parts of Uranus can last for more than 40 years.
The planet's most extraordinary feature is the tilt of its rotational axis, which is almost perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic, which means that it alternately has its north pole and its south pole turned towards the sun.
Even though Neptune is further from the sun, Uranus is the coldest planet in the solar system.
Uranus has 27 known satellites.
In many Asian languages, Uranus' name is translated into “Sky king star”.
Uranus mass is more than 14 times larger than Earth.
Uranus and Neptune are both known as Ice Giants.

Galileo was the first astronomer to observe Saturn's rings; he thought they were large Satellites.
Titan is the only Saturn Moon with an atmosphere.
Titan is also larger than the planet Mercury.
After Pluto was declassified as a planet, Neptune became the farthest planet from the sun. Neptune's diameter is about 30,200 miles or almost 4 times the Earth's diameter.

Mercury Facts

In Roman mythology Mercury is the god of commerce, travel and thievery.
The sun appears 2 and a half times larger in Mercury's sky compared to the Earth's.
If you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would only weigh 37 pounds on Mercury.
Mercury has virtually no atmosphere. It however has small traces of an atmosphere which consists minute quantities of Hydrogen, Oxygen, Sodium, Potassium and argon.
Because of the lack of atmosphere, Mercury's sky is black and the stars probably can be seen during the day.
It takes less than 88 Earth days for Mercury to orbit around the sun.
Because of a lack of an atmosphere, the temperature rises above 800°F while on the dark side it falls rapidly to -300°F.
Mercury is the most iron rich planet in the Solar System with an iron core like Earth.
The surface of Mercury is heavily cratered, looking much like our moon.
Mercury rotates slowly on its axis. It completes one rotation every 59 Earth days.
As a result of the planet's slow rotation on its axis and rapid movement around the sun, a day on Mercury—that is, the interval between one sunrise and the next—lasts about 180 Earth days.
The sun's rays are about seven times as strong on Mercury as they are on the Earth.
