Transcript of Guadalupe A.

The Solar System
The sun's age is 4.6 billion years
The sun is also a Yellow dwarf
The sun can fit one million earths inside of it
The amount of mass of the solar system the sun contains is about 99.86% of it
The amount of time it takes for light from the sun to reach the Earth is eight minutes.
On Venus, a day lasts longer than a year
The Earth and Venus are similar in size, some call it Earth's sister planet
Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system
America's Mariner 2 took scarce measurements of Venus in 1962.
However, Soviet Russia's Venera 3 was the first human made craft to land on Venus in 1966.
It was officially discovered in 1781 by Sir William Herschel.
The voyager 2 swept past the planet, it brought back close-up images of the planet, its moons, and rings
Every 84 Earth years, Uranus makes one trip around he sun
It's minimum atmospheric temperature is -224°C making it the coldest planet in our solar system
Jupiter comes in as the fourth brightest object in the solar system
It has the shortest day of all the planets with the days only lasting 9 hours and 55 minutes
Every 11.8 Earth years, Jupiter orbits around the sun
The upper part of Jupiter's atmosphere is divided into cloud belts and zones
A storm has raged on Jupiter for a least 350 years, that's what the planets big red spot is
Every year the moon drifts away approximately 3.8 cm from Earth
Luna 1 was the first was the first spacecraft to reach the Moon.
The fifth largest natural satellite in the Solar System is the moon
Since the moon has no atmosphere it's suface is unprotected from cosmic rays, meteorites and solar winds, and has huge temperature variations
So far, the Earth is the only planet that can support life
Unlike all the other planets, Earth isn't named after a Roman god or goddess
the nickel-iron core of Earth plus the rapid rotation, makes it's powerful magnetic field
The Earth's magnetic field also protects it from affects of solar wind
The plain human eye can see Saturn
Bands of clouds divide Saturn’s upper atmosphere
Saturn's oval-shaped storms are similar to Jupiter's storms
The moons of Saturn are numerous and diverse ranging from tiny moonlets to 150 moons
Pluto is named after the Greek god of the underworld
In 2006, Pluto was reclassified from a planet to a dwarf planet
On February 18th, 1930 the Lowell Observatory discovered Pluto
The largest dwarf planet might be Pluto
In Mercury a year only lasts 88 Earth days
Mercury is the smallest planet in the Solar System
scientists from NASA have come to believe that Mercury has a molten core
The surface of Mercury that faces the Sun has temperatures of up to 427°C
Unlike other planets, Neptune was not known to the ancients
Every 164.8 Earth years Neptune makes one trip around the Sun
Of all the ice giants, Neptune is the smallest
Neptune's atmosphere is made of hydrogen and helium, with some methane
Neptune has a very thin collection of rings that are possibly made up of ice particles combined with dust grains and possibly coated with a carbon-based substance
