Solar system (becky)

  1. 1. Solar System
  2. 2. Let’s take a closer look at the planets
  3. 3. Mercury Mercury is the closest planet to the sun. Every 88 days Mercury evolves around the sun one time. Although Mercury does not have an atmosphere it does have glaciers. Since Mercury is so close to the Sun, it is very hot. Normal temperatures during the day time can reach up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit .Due to its iron composition, Mercury has a large mass. Mercury has no atmosphere!
  4. 4. Venus Venus is the same size as Earth but because of its atmosphere made of carbon dioxide and sulfur compounds its temperatures are much hotter. Venus is the hottest planet and is the second planet closest to the sun. Venus takes 225 days to orbit around the sun once.
  5. 5. Earth Personally this is my favorite planet! I might be a little biased though.
  6. 6. Mars Every 687 days Mars evolves around the Sun. Just like Earth, Mars poles are covered in ice. Mars’s atmosphere is very thin and consists of mostly carbon dioxide. Mars is the 4th planet from the Sun. Did you know that Mars was named after the Roman God of War?
  7. 7. JupiterJupiter Jupiter has a very slow orbit around the sun at 12 years per revolution. Although it has a slow orbit it has a very fast rotation. Days on Jupiter only last 10 hours. Jupiter is the 5th planet away from the Sun. You could fit 1,300 Earths inside of Jupiter!
  8. 8. Saturn It would be impossible to stand on Saturn because it is so gaseous!
  9. 9. Uranus Uranus takes 87 years to orbit the Sun. It is a very icy planet because it is the 7th planet from the sun. The planet’s mass is 14 times larger than Earth. Uranus is the coldest planet in the solar system!
  10. 10. Neptune Neptune is the farthest planet from the sun and just like Uranus it is mostly ice. It take Uranus 165 years to orbit the Sun. Neptune’s atmosphere mostly consists of methane gas, which is what gives it the blue color. Neptune is the stormiest planet. It is known to have hurricanes that are three times faster than hurricanes on Earth!
