Transcript of "Planets"

  1. 1. Planets<br />By: Joshua Oh 8C<br />Mr. K<br />
  2. 2. Mercury<br />Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun.<br />Mercury was photographed by Mariner 10 it photographed 45% of its surface, and it showed us that Mercury had a lot of craters just like our moon.<br />It has cliffs as high as 3 km, it was formed when mercury shrank.<br />Mercury does not have an atmosphere either.So without an atmosphere and since it is so close to the Sun the temperatures can go from 425C to -174C.<br />
  3. 3. Venus<br /> The second nearest to the Sun is Venus.<br />They call Venus “Earth’s twin”, because the size and mass of Venus is around the same as Earth’s.<br />Maat Mons is the highest volcano on Venus, lava flows across hundreds of kilometers.<br />The clouds on Venus are so dense little of the sunlight reaches the surface of Venus.<br />The light that does get through, heats up the surface and gives off heat to the atmosphere, a lot of the heat is absorbed by carbon dioxide in Venus’ atmosphere. So this causes a greenhouse effect like the one on Earth. Since the greenhouse effect is so serious, the temperatures go from 450C to 475C.<br />
  4. 4. Earth<br />Earth is the third closest planet to the Sun.<br />It is about 150 million km from the Sun.<br />It has water, which can support life.<br />Earth’s atmosphere causes most meteors to burn up in the atmosphere before reaching the surface. It’s ozone layer protects life from the Sun’s radiation.<br />
  5. 5. Mars<br />The reason why Mars is red, because the iron oxide in the soil give a reddish color.<br />Mariner 9 showed canals most likely carved by flowing water.<br />It also discovered the largest volcano in the solar system, a volcano called Olympus Mons, but it probably extinct.<br />They also discovered large rift valleys.<br />Mars’ atmosphere is thinner than Earth’s, it is made up of mostly carbon dioxide with some nitrogen and argon.<br />The temperatures go from -125C to 35C.<br /> Mars has a 25 degree tilt, so that means like Earth it has a seasonal variation. <br />
  6. 6. Jupiter<br />Callisto<br />Ganymede<br />Europa<br />Io<br /> Jupiter is the largest planet in our solor system.<br />It’s atmosphere is mostly made of hydrogen, helium, ammonia, methane, and water vapor.<br />The clouds on Earth are very colorful, it also has continuous storms, such as the “Great Red Spot”.<br />It also has 63 different moons but the biggest four are: Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto. <br />Io gets heat up by the gravitational pull that it is known as the most active volcano in our solar system.<br />Europa is mostly made of rock and a thick crust of ice. Under the ice might be a ocean as deep as 50 km.<br />Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system, it is even larger than Mercury.<br />Callisto is mostly made up off ice and rock, it also has many craters inside it too.<br />
  7. 7. Saturn<br /> Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system.<br />Saturn’s atmosphere is mostly composed of hydrogen and helium. Much like Jupiter’s atmosphere it also contains ammonia, methane, and water vapor.<br />When you get deeper into the atmosphere the gases become liquid hydrogen and liquid helium. <br />Saturn has several rings, each large ring is made up of thousands of smaller rings.<br />Saturn’s rings are composed of thousands of ice and rock particles.<br />There are around 47 moons orbiting Saturn.<br />The largest moon on Saturn is a moon called Titan, it is larger than Mercury.<br />
  8. 8. Uranus<br />Uranus is a large planet, it has 27 moons with dark rings.<br />It’s largest moon is Titania, it has many deep valleys and craters.<br />Uranus has 11 rings surrounding it’s equator.<br />The atmosphere there is composed up of hydrogen, helium, and a little methane. Methane give the turquoise color that we see on Uranus.<br />It is blue because the methane absorbs the red and yellow light, and the clouds reflect the green and blue light.<br />Uranus is mostly made up of rocks and ices.<br />It’s axis is very different than other planets, its axis is tiled on the side, some scientists believe that it collided with something which caused it to be tilted like this.<br />
  9. 9. Neptune<br />Neptune’s atmosphere is composed of hydrogen and helium, with small amounts of methane, just like Uranus.Also like Uranus, the methane gives Neptune its turquoise color.<br />Also like Jupiter it has dark colored storms, one of them is called the Great Dark Spot.<br />Neptune’s surface is mostly composed of rock and different types of ices made from methane and ammonia.<br />Neptune has at least 13 moons, it’s biggest one is called Triton.<br />Neptune has dark rings which are pretty young and won’t last very long either.<br />
  10. 10. Pluto<br /> Pluto is the smallest planet within the other planets, it also is the farthest away from the Sun too.<br />It has a diameter of 2,300 km, it also takes about 248 years for one orbit around the Sun.<br />It has a thin atmosphere, it also has a solid, icy/rocky surface.<br />Pluto has 3 moons: Charon,, Hydra, and Nix.The largest of the 3 is Charon, it has a diameter of 1,200 km and orbits Pluto from 19,500 km away.<br />
