TRANSCRIPT

  • Have you wonder whats beyond this earth?What are those objects in the sky?

  • Solar SystemMarco S. Suarez

  • Solar System:PlanetsMoonsAsteroidsComets

  • Planets* The four smaller inner planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, also called the terrestrial planets.* The two largest, Jupiter and Saturn.* The two outermost planets, Uranus and Neptune.* Pluto is not longer counted as a planet. But is now considered the largest member of a distinct population known as the Kuiper belt.

  • The Scientific name is Sol. If hollow, one million Earths could fit inside. It acts as a giant magnet.The Suns surface is 6,000 degrees celcius, but its atmosphere is millions of degrees.The Sun

  • It takes 87,969 days for Mercury to orbit the Sun one time.It has no moons.There is almost no air on Mercury.Mercury is so hot that you could burn to death during the day, but spins so slowly you could freeze to death at night.Mercury

  • It takes 224,701 days to orbit the Sun. You would way 63 pounds here if you weighed 70 pounds on Earth.It is 67 million miles away from the Sun.Venus has no moons.

    Venus

  • It takes 365.3 days orbit the Sun. We are 93 million miles away from the Sun. It contains the only human life we know of. Earth has just the perfect combination of weather, temperature, and atmosphere to keep us alive. Earth

  • It takes 696.98 days to orbit the Sun. Mars is 142 million miles away from the sun. Weighing 70 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 27 on mars. Mars has two moons, Deimos and Phobos.Mars

  • It takes Jupiter 4332.59 days to complete one orbit around the Sun.You would weight 125 pounds on Jupiter if you weighed 70 pounds on Earth. Jupiter has 63 moons It only takes 10 hours to go from night to day here.Jupiter

  • It takes 30,684 days for Uranus to orbit the Sun.It is 1,784 millions miles away from the Sun. It is the only planet that spins on its side.You would weigh 82 pounds here, if you weighed 70 pounds on Earth.It has 27 moons.Uranus

  • It takes 60,190 days to orbit the Sun.It was discovered in 1846.It has 6 rings that surround it. Since Neptune is too far away, scientist know of 13 moons for sure, but there could be many more to be discovered.It is 2,794 million miles away from the Sun.Neptune

  • It takes 10,759.2 days to orbit the Sun. Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. Its diameter is 88,846 miles. It would take more than 1,000 Earths to fill up the volume of the giant planet. Saturn has 34 moons. It is 888 millions away from the sun.Saturn

    The Solar System[a] consists of the Sun and those celestial objects bound to it by gravity, all of which were formed from the collapse of a giant molecular cloud approximately 4.6 billion years ago. Of the many objects that orbit the Sun, most of the mass is contained within eight relatively solitary planets[e] whose orbits are almost circular and lie within a nearly flat disc called the ecliptic plane. The four smaller inner planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, also called the terrestrial planets, are primarily composed of rock and metal. The four outer planets, the gas giants, are substantially more massive than the terrestrials. The two largest, Jupiter and Saturn, are composed mainly of hydrogen and helium; the two outermost planets, Uranus and Neptune, are composed largely of ices, such as water, ammonia and methane, and are often referred to separately as "ice giants".*
