  3. 3. • The sun appears 2 and a half times larger in Mercurys sky compared to the Earths. • If you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would only weigh 37 pounds on Mercury. • Because of the lack of atmosphere, Mercurys sky is black and the stars probably can be seen during the day. • Because of a lack of an atmosphere, the temperature rises above 800 F while on the dark side it falls rapidly to -300 F. • The surface of Mercury is heavily cratered, looking much like our Moon. • The suns rays are about seven times as strong on Mercury as they are on the Earth.Mercury
  4. 4. • Venus is known as Earths twin sister because of its similar size and proximity to each other. • Its atmosphere is made up mostly of carbon dioxide. • Venus rotates so slowly that it orbits the sun faster than it can make one whole rotation on its axis. In other words, Venus has a longer day than year. • It takes 243 days for Venus to make a rotation. • And it takes 224 days for Venus to orbit around the sun. • Venus is the most widely explored planet aside from our own Earth. Numerous space probes have been sent to Venus to gather data and some have landed on the surfaceVenus
  5. 5. • The Earth is estimated to be 4.5 billion years old. It travels through space at 660,000 miles per hour. • The oldest rocks in the world, the so- called St. Peter and St. Paul stones in the Atlantic Ocean, are 4 billion years old. • The Earth weighs 6,588,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons. • The earth rotates on its axis more slowly in March than in September. • If the Earth were compressed to a sphere with a 2-inch diameter, its surface would be as smooth as a billiard ballsEarth
  6. 6. • Mars is red because it is rusty. There is a lot of iron in the soil, and the air on Mars has made it turn red-just like rusty iron on Earth. • One of Mars moons, Phobos, is moving closer and closer to Mars. Scientists think that one day it will crash into Mars. • Mars has the tallest Volcano in the Solar System named Olympus Mons and it is 15 miles high which is three times the height of Mount Everest. • Like Earth, the poles of Mars are covered in ice. The ice becomes thicker in the winter. • Mars orbits the sun every 687 Earth daysMars
  7. 7. • If you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 264 pounds on Jupiter. • Jupiter has a mass 318 times greater than the Earths and a diameter that is 11 times larger. • The mass of Jupiter is 70% of the total mass of all the other planets in our Solar System. • Jupiters volume is large enough to contain 1,300 planets the size of Earth. • Jupiter rotates faster than any planet in the Solar SystemJupiter
  8. 8. • A 100 pound object on Earth would weight 116 pounds on Saturn. • Saturn has the lowest density of all the planets in the solar system. It is so light that it could actually float on water if there was an ocean big enough to hold it. • It takes about 29.46 Earth years for Saturn to orbit around our sun. • Saturns rings are made up of billions of pieces of rocks and dust. • Saturn has over 30 known Satellites, but many of them are small and faintSaturn
  9. 9. • Because of the strange way it spins, nights on some parts of Uranus can last for more than 40 years. • The planets most extraordinary feature is the tilt of its rotational axis, which is almost perpendicular to the plane of the eclipitc, which means that it alternately has its north pole and its south pole turned towards the sun. • Even though Neptune is further from the sun, Uranus is the coldest planet in the solar system. • Uranus has 27 known satellitesUranus
  10. 10. • Neptune is so far away that it took the space probe Voyager 2, 12 years to reach it. • Neptune is the stormiest planet. The winds there can blow up to 1,240 miles per hour, that is three times as fast as Earths Hurricanes. • The planet has has a system of thin dark rings but they are incomplete rings and are best described as arcs. • Neptune is a sea blue color due to the methane gas in its atmosphereNeptune
