How A Solar System Is Made:• Gravity pulls gasses and dust together into a dust cloud. That dust cloud then turns into a solar nebula.
How A Solar System Is Made: The solar nebula start to spin, due to gravity pulling particles to the center, and turns into a flat disk.
How A Solar System Is Made: When particles and gasses reach the center of the solar nebula, the nebula sparks, creating a star.
How A Solar System Is Made: 99% of the remaining dust and particles are pulled into the new star, forming it into a sun.
How A Solar System Is Made: The remaining 1% of the particles rotate around the sun. Smaller particles collide with bigger ones, and form planets.
How A Solar System Is Made: The gravitational pull, and the pull of dark matter, leaves orbits between the planets. Gasses, dust, and particles get pulled into the planet’s orbits and a solar system is created.
Definitions• Planetary Nebula- A ring-shaped nebula formed by an expanding shell of gas around an aging star• Solar System- The collection of planets and their moons in orbit around a sun, together with smaller bodies, such as asteroids, meteoroids, and comets• Terrestrial Planet- A compacted, rocky-surfaced planet Ex: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and Pluto• Jovian Planets- A very gaseous-natured planet Ex: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune• Solar Nebula- A massive cloud in space, made up of gas, dust, and other particles• Orbit- The pathway for planets, stars, moons, asteroids, etc..• Dark Matter- Nonluminous material that is postulated to exist in space
