Solar system

  1. 1. By mica Clarke
  2. 2.  Apart from the fact that the sun is a burning ball of gas, it is quite remarkable. It helps the plants grow and lets life live. If the sun wasn’t there then we would not be here now!
  3. 3.  There are 8 planet names can you think of any? Mercury Venus earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune
  4. 4.  Mercury’s name came from the Greek god Hermes. If you moved to mercury you would not weigh as much as you would on earth. Mercury is the closest planet to the sun. it is. Mercury is 46 million kilometres from the Sun. mercury has no moons.
  5. 5.  In astronomy mythology, Venus was the Roman goddess of love and beauty. In Greek, her name was Aphrodite. Venus has no moons. The distance of Venus from the sun is108,942,109 km
  6. 6.  Scientists use the Earth to study all the other planets. Since no human has ever visited another planet, we have to use what we know about the Earth, and try to guess what the other planets must be like. The earth is miles from the sun. The exact distance between Earth and the Sun varies with its position in its orbit, which is elliptical. The average distance between the Earth and the Sun is about 150 million kilometres (93 million miles).
  7. 7. Mars is approximately 249,209,300 km or 154.8million miles from the Sun.If you weighed 70 pounds (32 kg) on the Earth, youwould weigh about 27 pounds (12 kg) on Mars. Marsexcites scientists because its mild temperament ismore like the Earths than any of the other planets.Evidence suggests that Mars once had rivers,streams, lakes, and even an ocean. As Marsatmosphere slowly depleted into outer space, thesurface water began to permanently evaporate.Today the only water on Mars in either frozen in thepolar caps or underground.
  8. 8.  Jupiter is 483.78 million miles away from the sun. Jupiter known as Zeus in Greek mythology over threw his father Saturn to become the king of gods. He then split the universe with his brothers Neptune and Pluto.
  9. 9.  The average distance of Saturn from the Sun is 1,433,44 million miles. Saturn was the Roman god of agriculture. He was called Cronus by the Greeks. He is the son of Uranus and the father of Jupiter. Saturn overthrew his father to become king of the gods, but was then overthrown himself by his son Jupiter. 9,370 km or 890,700,000 miles.
  10. 10.  Like Jupiter and Saturn, Uranus is a gas giant. But Uranus is a little different. Unlike all the other planets and most of the moons in our Solar System, Uranus spins on its side. It is believed that long ago a very large object smashed into this planet. The crash was so powerful that it completely changed the direction of Uranus planetary rotation. The average distance Uranus is from the Sun is 2,870,990,000 km.
  11. 11. Neptune is the Eighth planet inthe Solar System.The distance from the Sun is:-•Neptune is approximately4,553,946,490 km (2,829,691,160miles) from the sun.
