Transcript

  • 1. Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system - only slightly larger than the Earth's moon. It is the closest planet to the sun at a distance of about 58 million km (36 million miles) or 0.39 AU. Mercury has no moons One day on Mercury (the time it takes for Mercury to rotate or spin once) takes 59 Earth days. Mercury makes a complete orbit around the sun (a year in Mercury time) in just 88 Earth days
  • 2. Venus is only a little smaller than Earth Venus is the second closest planet to the sun at a distance of about 108 million km (67 million miles) or 0.72 AU. Venus spins backwards (retrograde rotation) when compared to the other planets. This means that the sun rises in the west and sets in the east on Venus. One day on Venus lasts as long as 243 Earth days (the time it takes for Venus to rotate or spin once). Venus makes a complete orbit around the sun (a year in Venusian time) in 225 Earth days.
  • 3. Earth is a rocky planet, also known as a terrestrial planet, with a solid and dynamic surface of mountains, valleys, canyons, plains and so much more. What makes Earth different from the other terrestrial planets is that it is also an ocean planet: 70 percent of the Earth's surface is covered in oceans. One day on Earth takes 24 hours (this is the time it takes the Earth to rotate or spin once). Earth makes a complete orbit around the sun (a year in Earth time) in about 365 days. The Earth's atmosphere is made up of 78 percent nitrogen (N2), 21 percent oxygen (O2) and 1 percent other ingredients -- the perfect balance for us to breathe and live. Many planets have atmospheres, but only Earth's is breathable.
  • 4. Mars has a thin atmosphere made up mostly of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen (N2) and argon (Ar). Mars is a rocky planet, also known as a terrestrial planet. Mars' solid surface has been altered by volcanoes, impacts, crustal movement, and atmospheric effects such as dust storms. Mars is known as the Red Planet because iron minerals in the Martian soil oxidize, or rust, causing the soil -- and the dusty atmosphere -- to look red.
  • 5. Jupiter orbits our sun, a star. Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun at a distance of about 778 million km (484 million miles) or 5.2 AU. Jupiter has 50 known moons, with an additional 17 moons awaiting confirmation of their discovery -- that is a total of 67 moons. One day on Jupiter takes about 10 hours (the time it takes for Jupiter to rotate or spin once). Jupiter makes a complete orbit around the sun (a year in Jovian time) in about 12 Earth years (4,333 Earth days).
  • 6. Saturn is a gas-giant planet and does not have a solid surface. Saturn has 53 known moons with an additional 9 moons awaiting confirmation of their discovery. Saturn has the most spectacular ring system, which is made up of seven rings with several gaps and divisions between them.
  • 7. Like Venus, Uranus rotates east to west. Uranus' rotation axis is tilted almost parallel to its orbital plane, so Uranus appears to be rotating on its side. Uranus has 27 known moons Third largest planet, the surface of liquid methane gives it a stunning blue color, Icy atmosphere.
  • 8. Neptune's atmosphere is made up mostly of hydrogen (H2), helium (He) and methane (CH4). Neptune has 13 moons. Neptune's moons are named after various sea gods and nymphs in Greek mythology. Neptune has six rings. Voyager 2 is the only spacecraft to have visited Neptune. Neptune cannot support life as we know it.
