Transcript of Neptune
The planet was discovered at the Berlin Observatory.
They knew that there had to be another planet beyond Uranus because of a disturbance in Uranus's orbit. Neptune has thirteen known moons.
The largest and most well known moon is Triton.
Triton is known mostly because of it retrograde orbit, which means the motion of the moon contrary to the spin of its planet.
Triton was first discovered by the Voyager 2.
All of the moons are composed of rock and ice. Revolution: It takes Neptune 165 Earth years to completely and fully orbit around the Sun once.
Rotation: It rotates on its axis during the time period of 16.11 hours.
Size: 30,700 miles in diameter, or about 3.8 times as wide as Earth.
Even though Neptune's volume is 72 times that
of Earth's, its mass is only 17 times Earth's mass Well if you just need to get away from people AND stay in our solar system. Neptune is the place for you.
Neptune has the only large moon in our solar system, Triton, that orbits backwards.
Neptune has the fastest clocked wind speed than any other gas planet in the solar system!
The average wind speeds on Neptune are as high as 1,200 miles per hour. So no wearing hats on Neptune!
The planet is blue and if hollow could fit up to 73 Earths inside. Everyone should want to go on a huge blue sphere. For you to be able to live on Neptune you would need the absolute necessities of food, water, and oxygen.
To live longer you would need soil for plants that provide extra nutrients. Tools, medicine and for psychological reasons a pet, just to keep you company.
For warmth you would need a power generator so you don't get too cold.
For a little sparkle in your life you could grab a complimentary space suit. Not really complimentary but mandatory, because if you don't use it.. you'll freeze to death and slowly disintegrate as gas envelops you and leaves your body left with nothing but bone. Therefore there's no chance of survival without a space suit. So take a space suit.

The atmosphere is composed of hydrogen, methane and helium.
The only spacecraft to ever visit Neptune is the Voyager 2.
Neptune has five rings. Named Halle, Le Verrier, Lasell, Arago, and Adams. The Benefits Why should you study Neptune?
By studying weather on Neptune you learn more about weather in general.This helps us have a better understanding of weather on Earth. How does it relate to your everyday life on Earth?
If we study Neptune more in depth, we are able to relate to Neptune because we both, as planets, have the same core and also have an atmosphere. Naiad Triton Proteus Thalassa Despina Galatea Larissa Neried The Anthem OUR PLANET PRIDE We are Neptune... we like to spin on an axis.
We are approximately 2.7 billions miles.. away from life.
We are Neptune.... we have thirteen moons.
We are the farthest planet away from the Sun.
We have thirteen moons.. named..Naiad, Thalassa ,

Neptune's rings are different from other planets rings for many reasons.
When scientist first observed Neptune they saw faint arcs instead of complete rings.
Voyager 2, however, showed them to be complete rings.
What makes it special is that one of the rings appear to be twisted.
There are similarities with Jupiter and Uranus, all of their rings are very dark and their composition is unknown.
The rings are not clearly defined but have dark regions that are clumps of dust.
All of the rings are thought to be young and short lived.
How did they get the rings you ask?
Astronauts believe that Neptune formed it's rings when one of Neptune's moons got too close to the planet and disintegrated because of gravity. Meaning that the rings are remains of on of Neptune's once moons. What Voyager 2 accomplished. Voyager 2 was the first and only space probe to ever visit Neptune.
The reason is because Neptune is so far away it takes 12 years for the probe to travel to Neptune.
At the time of Voyager 2's encounter Neptune most noticeable feature was a great dark spot, this spot was later named The Great Dark Spot.This spot was about the same size as Earth.
From observing the spot they found out that Neptune's atmosphere changes rapidly.
Voyager 2 accomplished a lot and answered many questions that puzzled many scientists, such as the rotation of the moon and theories that suggest Neptune's pull trapped Triton. SPACE SUITS TAKE ONE. Too Cool for the Sun.
