  1. 1. N.U.P N= Neptune U= Uranus P= pluto By Kaylee, Nikita, Isaac, Mat, Steph, Chloe, Emma, Valentina, Ash, Yu Wen
  2. 2. Contents <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Neptune </li></ul><ul><li>Uranus </li></ul><ul><li>Pluto </li></ul><ul><li>Moon </li></ul><ul><li>Sun </li></ul><ul><li>Index </li></ul>
  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>There are 8 planets in the solar system. They are </li></ul><ul><li>called: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, </li></ul><ul><li>Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto which is a </li></ul><ul><li>Dwarf planet. The Sun surrounded by a family of </li></ul><ul><li>planets called the solar system. This family is held </li></ul><ul><li>together by an invisible force called Gravity, which </li></ul><ul><li>pulls things towards each other. We live in the </li></ul><ul><li>Milky-Way. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Neptune <ul><li>Neptune is the eighth planet from the sun. It is a cold, dark place that’s the smallest of gas giants. It was named after the Roman god of water and sea. Neptune is a ball of gas and ice with a rocky core, mainly of frozen methane gas. Winds reach speeds of up to 700 miles an hour. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Uranus <ul><li>Uranus is a giant icy ball of gas and liquid </li></ul><ul><li>with a solid centre. It’s the seventh planet </li></ul><ul><li>from the Sun. Uranus is so big it can fit 50 </li></ul><ul><li>Earth in it. When viewed from space </li></ul><ul><li>Uranus is a pretty pale blue colour. Scientist </li></ul><ul><li>think a planet as big as Earth may have </li></ul><ul><li>crashed into Uranus at some point, tipping it </li></ul><ul><li>on it’s side. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Uranus <ul><li>Uranus looks smooths but isn’t solid so spacecraft </li></ul><ul><li>can’t land. On Uranus winter lasts 21 years and </li></ul><ul><li>half the planet is darkness. Uranus takes 84 years </li></ul><ul><li>to orbit the Sun. On Uranus winter lasts 21 years </li></ul><ul><li>and half the planet is in darkness. During Summer </li></ul><ul><li>which also lasts 21 years, the sun shines all the </li></ul><ul><li>time. Scientists have to use telescopes to see </li></ul><ul><li>Uranus’s rings. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Pluto <ul><li>Pluto was discovered in 1930 it is cold, icy </li></ul><ul><li>and brown in colour. Pluto is a dwarf planet and has 3 moons the biggest moon is called Charon discovered in 1978.Pluto is on the very edge of the solar system. It takes 5 and a half hours for sunlight to reach Pluto. Pluto has three moons around it:Charon,Nix and Hydra.Charon is about half the size of Pluto. The diameter of Pluto is 2320km and the atmosphere is methane and no magnetic field. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Sun <ul><li>The Sun is the solar system's power station, generating vast amounts of heat and light energy. In the scale of the Universe, the Sun is not particularly large or powerful, but it is the only star scientists have been able to study in detail. The sun is 50 times hotter than boiling water. It takes 8 minutes and 20 seconds for the sun rays to reach Earth. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Moon <ul><li>The Moon is a round, hard rocky ball. It is </li></ul><ul><li>the brightest object in the night sky. Nearly </li></ul><ul><li>four moons could fit across the earth. The </li></ul><ul><li>moon is made of pale-coloured rocks. These </li></ul><ul><li>rocks reflect the light from the sun. The </li></ul><ul><li>Moon doesn’t make it’s own light. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Moon <ul><li>Scientists think that the moon is made of </li></ul><ul><li>rock from earth and from a small planet that </li></ul><ul><li>hit earth along time ago. The sun and moon </li></ul><ul><li>seem to be about the same size from Earth, </li></ul><ul><li>but really the Sun is much bigger than the </li></ul><ul><li>Moon. They only seem to be the same size </li></ul><ul><li>because the Sun is a lot further away from </li></ul><ul><li>the Moon. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Satellites <ul><li>A satellite is an object in space which orbits ,or </li></ul><ul><li>goes around, a lager object, such as a planet. The </li></ul><ul><li>moon is Earths natural satellite, but now the Earth </li></ul><ul><li>has lots of man-made satellites as well. Satellites </li></ul><ul><li>have to be taken into space, by rockets or by the </li></ul><ul><li>space shuttle, and released at the right speed to </li></ul><ul><li>stay in orbit. They come in all sorts of shapes and </li></ul><ul><li>sizes. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Satellites <ul><li>Signals and messages cannot be sent in a </li></ul><ul><li>straight line from one country to another </li></ul><ul><li>because of the curve of the Earth, so </li></ul><ul><li>satellites above Earth are use to make the </li></ul><ul><li>connections. Television signals are sent </li></ul><ul><li>from a dish aerial to a satellite in space. </li></ul>
