Hubble was designed to collect better data about the universe than can becollected from Earth. One way Hubble can get better information is bytaking better pictures. From Earth, we are looking through theatmosphere. Dust, air currents, water vapour, and clouds in theatmosphere can make pictures blurry and less detailed. Because Hubbleorbits 370 miles above Earth, it doesnt have to look through theatmosphere, so, it can take clearer and more accurate pictures.
First of all Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system.How much would I weigh on Mercury?If you were to go to Mercury you would not weigh as much asyou do on earth you would weigh less because Mercury is asmaller planet therefore meaning that your gonna weigh muchless. For example if you weighed 32kg on Earth than you wouldweigh about 12kg on Mercury.How Hot/Cold is Mercury?The surface of Mercury that faces the sun would beapproximately 800 degrees Fahrenheit. But on the other sideof Mercury temperature drops to about-300 degrees Fahrenheit making it almost impossible to livethere.How many earth days would it take for Mercury to do it’s fullorbit around the sun?Mercury completes it’s orbit around the sun in about 88 Earthdays.How many moons does Mercury have?Mercury has no moons.
MarsFirst of all Mars is the 2nd smallest planet in the solar system.How much would I weigh on Mars?If you weighed 32 kg on the Earth, you would weigh about 12 kgon Mars.Amazing facts about Mars:Mars amazes scientist with its mild temperament is more likethe Earths than any of the other planets. Evidence suggests thatMars once had rivers, streams, lakes, and even an ocean. AsMars atmosphere slowly depleted into outer space, the surfacewater began to permanently evaporate. Today the only water onMars in either frozen in the polar caps or underground.Some people say mars is the "Red Planet." This is because thesurface of Mars is red. If you stood on the surface of Mars, youwould see red dirt and rocks everywhere.How many moons does Mars have?Mars has two moons, their names are Deimos and Phobos.
VenusVenus is the 3rd smallest planet in the solarsystem.How much would I weigh on Venus?Because Venus and the Earth are almost the exactsame size, you would weigh almost exactly thesame on either planet. If you weighed 32 kg onEarth, you would weigh 29 kg on Venus.How Hot/Cold is it on Venus?The temperatures on Venus can reach almost 900degrees Fahrenheit (approx 482 degrees Celsius)How many moons does Venus have?Venus has no moons.
EarthEarth, our home planet is the 4th smallest planet is the solar system.Some interesting thing about Earth:The Earth is the biggest of all the terrestrial planets. A terrestrial planet is a denseplanet found in the inner Solar System. The diameter of Earth is 7,926 miles. Thecircumference measured around the equator is 24,901 miles. There are currentlyalmost 7 billion people living on the Earth. About 30% of the Earths surface iscovered with land, while about 70% is covered by oceans.Earth is the only planet in the Solar System with plate tectonics. The outer crustof the Earth is broken up into regions known as tectonic plates.Did you know?Did you know that 1 day is 4 minutes than you think it is! It’s actually 23 hours, 56minutes and 4 seconds. This is the amount of time it takes for the Earth tocompletely rotate around its axis.
NeptuneNeptune is the 5th smallest planet in the solar system.How much would I weigh in Neptune?If you weigh 32 kg on the Earth, you would weigh 36 kg onNeptune.Who was Neptune Discovered by and what is the planetmade up of?For heaps of centuries people did not know that Neptuneplanet even existed. It was discovered by Johann Galle andHeinrich DArrest in 1846.Neptune is the smallest of the four gas giants in our SolarSystem. Much like Saturn and Uranus, Neptunesatmosphere contains hydrogen, helium and methane.what is the Weather like on Neptune?Neptune is a very windy planet there is no other planet inthe Solar System that has winds that are as strong asNeptunes. The winds near the Great Dark Spot werebelieved to have reached nearly 1931 km per hour.
UranusUranus is the 6th smallest planet in the solar systemHow much Would I weigh on Uranus?It would take you a couple of years to fly a rocket to Uranus. When you got there youwould weigh less because Uranus gravity is not as strong as the Earths. If you weigh32 kg on Earth, you would weigh 28 kg on Uranus.Interesting facts:Like Jupiter and Saturn, Uranus is a gas giant. But Uranus is a bit different. Unlike allthe 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 Uranus. The crash was sopowerful that it completely changed the direction of Uranus planetary rotation.Uranus is a really cold planet. It has been called the "ice giant." It is believed thatUranus is made up of rock and ice and has a large rocky core. Because of the massiveplanetary pressure of Uranus, there could possibly be trillions of large diamonds in oron the surface of this planet.How many moons does Uranus have?Uranus has 27 moons. Five of these moons are large and the rest are smaller. The
SaturnSaturn is not the largest planet but is the 2ndbiggest planet in the solar system.How much would you weigh on Saturn?Because Saturn is bigger than the Earth, youwould weigh more on Saturn than you dohere. If you weigh 32 kg on Earth, you wouldweigh 34 kg on Saturn. Probably not as muchas you thought, right? Keep reading to find outwhy.Saturn is most well-known for its rings.However, it is not the only planet with rings.Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune also have rings.Saturn is a favourite object for many observers.Its beautiful rings are 169,800 miles wide(approx 273,266 km). But the rings areamazingly thin. If you turned the rings on theirside, they would be able to fit between thegoal posts on a football field.
JupiterJupiter is the largest planet in the solar system.How much would I weigh on Jupiter?If you travelled to Jupiter on vacation, you would be very heavy. If you weigh 32 kg onEarth, on Jupiter you would weigh 84 kg. This is because Jupiter is such a large planetand so has more gravity.Interesting facts:Jupiter is by far the largest planet in our Solar System. The Earth could fit insideJupiter more than 1000 times.Jupiter is a very stormy planet. There are storms found throughout the atmosphere,and most of the storms seem to never end. The many different cloud formations andstorms in the atmosphere also make Jupiter a very colourful planet.How many moons does Jupiter have?Jupiter has 50 official moons and 12 provisional (unofficial) moons. The four largestand most well-known were discovered by Galileo in the year 1610. Their names areIo, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. Some of the other moons are Adrastea, Ananke,Carme, Elara, Himalia, Leda, Lysithea, Metis, Pasiphae, Sinope, and Thebe.
