SOLAR SYSTEMS Cheyenne Duesterbeck
HOW THE SOLAR SYSTEM WAS FORMED
- People believe that our Solar System was formed when a cloud of dust and gas was disturbed when a star exploded.
- The cloud started pulling all the gas and dust together and formed a Nebula.
- As the cloud was about to collapse it started spinning faster and fast.
- Clumps started to form and get bigger creating our planets.
- Moons were created the same exact way.
- One of the clouds eventually got to hot that it became a star.
- Scientist believe the sun will eventually burn out and then it will die and so will the other planets.
- Inner planets are the planets closest to the sun.
- Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are the inner planets.
- The outer are the planets farthest away from the sun.
- Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are the 4 outer planets.
- The differences is that the inner planets since they are closer to the sun they have more of the suns warmth.
- The outer planets since there so far away they are colder and don’t get as much heat from the sun.
