Extreme Environment: The Solar System
Some facts about Mercury are...
Mercury orbits at 50 km per second
The side close to the sun can each hundreds of degrees and the cold side can be a hundred degrees below zero
Mercury has no moons
Mercury is the closest planet to the sun.
Some facts about Venus are....
Venus's atmosphere is almost 100% made of carbon dioxide
Venus has no moons
Venus is the second farthest planet from the sun
Earth is the third farthest planet from the sun.
Known as the Red Planet, Mars is characterized by its red, dusty landscape.
Mars is the forth farthest planet from the sun.
Jupiter is the fifth farthest planet from the sun
If you put a saturn in the water, it would float.
Saturn is the sixth farthest planet from the sun.
Saturn is the second largest planet in the Solar System after Jupiter. It is so big that Earth could fit into it 755 times.
Saturn is a slightly smaller version of Jupiter, with similar, but less distinctive, surface patterns. Like Jupiter, it is mostly made up of hydrogen and helium gas. Saturn's main difference to Jupiter is the amazing set of rings that orbit it.
Jupiter has a liquid metal ocean (metallic hydrogen) at its centre, surrounded by thousands of kilometres of hydrogen and helium gas.
Jupiter has a thin set of rings hardly visible with telescope from Earth.

Earth is almost five billion years old, although life (resembling life as we know it) has only existed on the planet for the last 150 million to 200 million years. This means that life has only been present on Earth for only 5%-10% of its lifetime.
FACTS ABOUT EARTH
Earth is the only planet to have humans
Earth is the only planet
in the Solar System not
to be named after a mythical God.
Mars is 35 million miles from Earth
A day in Mars is equal to 24.6 Earth Hours
How old is the Moon?
The Moon is 4.5 billion years old.
How far is the Moon from Earth?
The Moon is about 250,000 miles (384,400 kilometres) from Earth.
Travelling by car:
Travelling by rocket:
Travelling by light speed:
How wide is the Moon?
The Moon has a diameter of 2,000 miles ( 3,476 kilometres).
The surface of the Moon has about the same area as the continent of Africa.
The mass of Jupiter is 318
greater than the mass of Earth.
Venus is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty.
black hole: In the strictest and most exact sense, there are currently 14 known black holes.
Even light cannot travel back out of a black hole after crossing the Event Horizon.
A black hole is formed when a star is out of nuclear fuel which it needs to exist. It grows smaller and smaller until it collapses under its own weight.
1. An average glaxaie's speed is about 140 miles a second ! :]
2.Main Types of Galaxies: 2;
spiral and Elliptical

Technology: Space Technology is helping us to understand what is beyond Earth. It has already helped us a great deal and we are always discovering more because of it. If we didn't have space technology we might still think that the Earth is flat.
There is a space robot called Sojourner. Sojourner is a 6-wheeled vehicle of a rocker bogie design which allows the traverse of obstacles a wheel diameter (13cm) in size. Each wheel is independently actuated and geared (2000:1). The front and rear wheels are independently steerable, providing the capability for the vehicle to turn in place. The vehicle has a top speed of 0.4m/min. It is powered by a 0.22sqm solar panel comprised of 13 strings of 18, 5.5mil GaAs cells each. The normal driving power requirement for the microrover is 10W.
There is gravity everywhere. It gives shape to the orbits of the planets, the solar system, and even galaxies. Gravity from the Sun reaches throughout the solar system and beyond, keeping the planets in their orbits. Gravity from Earth keeps the Moon and human-made satellites in orbit.
It is true that gravity decreases with distance, so it is possible to be far away from a planet or star and feel less gravity. But that doesn't account for the weightless feeling that astronauts experience in space. The reason that astronauts feel weightless actually has to do with their position compared to their spaceship. We feel weight on Earth because gravity is pulling us down, while the floor or ground stop us from falling. We are pressed against it. Any ship in orbit around the Earth is falling slowly to Earth. Since the ship and the astronauts are falling at the same speed, the astronauts don't press against anything, so they feel weightless.
New invention : If I am a scientist,
I will make a robot called mini spider.
It will be really small and have 6 legs.It will
take a picture of a planet like sun because It is too hot to explore. I think that this robot will make our life easier.
