KEYVON TAYLOR The Solar System How the Solor System was Made? The most popular theory is called the nebular hypothesis. It fell out of favor for a number of years, but now it is back as the definitive model. According to the nebular hypothesis, our Solar System began around 4.6 billion years ago when part of a molecular cloud of interstellar gas, which was filled with particles of ice, dust, rock, and other particles, collapsed. These clouds collapsed from some kind of turbulence that caused it to heat up and eventually turn into a star. Mercury is the smallest planet and the closest one in the solar system to the sun. It has and orbital period of 88 days. It has the fastest orbital period of any planet. since it had no heat to retain, it had a temperature radious of -173 to -280 degrees. Mercury is just a cold dark planet. The surface is covered in craters made by meteors that broke the surface. VENUS Venus is the second planet from the sun, orbiting every 227 days. The planet gets its name from the goddess of love and beauty. If the moon is not shinning you can clearly see Venus from earth. The outer surface is covered by dark, thick clouds. Which makes it very hard to see the surface.The actual surface is made of sulfiric acid making it impossible to land on Venus. Venus's temperature ranges from about 462 to 863 degrees. EARTH "The blue marble," as some people might call it, earth. Earth is the third planet from the sun and also the only planet that has human life on it. Earth formed about 4.54 billion years ago when three meteors clashed together and made a giant rock. Life on Earth showed up within the first billion years. The estimated time earth will be able to last with human is about another 500 million years. MARS Mars is the fourth planet from the sun. It gets its name from the Roman god of war. mostly described as the "Red planet", its surface isn't that much red at all. The first sighting of mars was in 1965 by the Marine 4. Mars can easily be seen at night by the naked eye. Mars has two known moons, Phobos and Deimos. Mars is the only known planet to have a working volcano. JUPITER Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun, and the largest planet in the whole solar system. Its nickname is the "Gas planet." The Roman named the planet after the god Jupiter. The planet has an incredible 67 moons that revolve around it. Jupiter's mass is 2.5 times bigger than all of the planets combined. The most interesting thing about Jupiter is its great, big red spot. The spot has the capability of swallowing two Earth's or two Venus's. Hello MERCURY Saturn Saturn is the second largest planet and the sixth planet from the sun. The planet is named after the roman god agriculture. Some scientist are calling it "The gas planet," cause of its giant radius which is nine time bigger than the earth. jupiter from a image in space URANUS Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun. It has the third largest radius. Uranus and Neptune have a lot of similarities. Sometimes they are called "Ice giants." Uranus did no get a name from a roman. A famous astronomer who's name is unknown name the blue planet. NEPTUNE Neptune is the eighth and farthest planet from the sun. Neptune is the most dense planet of them all. The planet has 17 times more mass than Earth. Neptune was the first planet ever found by astronomers. THANKS FOR WATCHING. PLUTO Pluto is the second most big dwarf planet known. Its consist of only rock and ice. It is a massive 7.4 billion km away from the sun. In 1970 it was classified as a planet, but in 2006 it was classified as a dwarf planet. Pluto has five known moons, the largest is charon.
