  2. 2. The Sun Diameter (km): 1 392 000 which is about 109 times the size of earth Composition: Gas Number of satellites: 9 Temperature: 5,505 °C Length of average year: 225 million earth years (1 cosmic year) Atmosphere: Chromospheres, photosphere, transition region, corona and heliosphere Point of interest: The sun is around 4 billion years old and is expected to live for another 4 billion years
  3. 3. Mercury Diameter of each planet (km): 4 878 Distance from sun (km): 58,343,169.6 Composition : Rock Number of satellites: None Temperature: -180 to 430 °C Discovery date: Prehistory Length of average day: 176 Earth Days Length of average year: 88 Earth days Type of atmosphere: None Point of interest: The Hubble telescope can’t look at Mercury because it is too close to the sun
  4. 4. Venus Diameter of each planet (km): 12 104 Distance from sun (km): 107,710,466.9 Composition : It is estimated to be similar to Earths Number of satellites: None Temperature: 465 °C Discovery date: Prehistory Length of average day: 243 Earth days Length of average year: 225 Earth days Type of atmosphere: CO 2 Point of interest: Venus is Earths twin.

  5. 5. Earth Diameter of each planet (km): 12 756 Distance from sun (km): 149 597 870.7 Composition : Inner core, outer core, magma and crust Number of satellites: one Temperature: -89 to 58 ºC Discovery date: Earth wasn't disco vered by anyone Length of average day: 24 hours Length of average year: 365 Earth days and in a leap year 336 earth days Type of atmosphere: N 2 +O 2 Point of interest: Earth is the only known planet to have life on it
  6. 6. <ul><li>Diameter of each planet (km): 6 787 </li></ul><ul><li>Distance from sun (km): 16 006 972.2 </li></ul><ul><li>Composition : Rock and Iron </li></ul><ul><li>Number of satellites: 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature: -82 to 0 º C </li></ul><ul><li>Discovery date: Prehistory </li></ul><ul><li>Length of average day: 1.03 earth days </li></ul><ul><li>Length of average year: 1.88 earth days </li></ul><ul><li>Type of atmosphere: CO 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Point of interest: Mars has a grand canyon that is around the size of one side of America to the other </li></ul>Mars
  7. 7. Asteroid Belt How are asteroids formed: Asteroids were formed in the big bang and were remains that couldn't form a planet or anything else Number of asteroids: Thousands Distance from sun (km): 402 336 000 Composition : Rock and metal Number of satellites: Thousands Temperature: Roughly -73 ºC Discovery date: 1700's and 1800's Point of interest: Most asteroids are covered in dust

They can reach up to 2100km/hour
  12. 12. Pluto Diameter of each planet (km): 2 300 Distance from sun (km): 5 900 140 020 Composition : Rock Number of satellites: 1 Temperature: -220ºC Discovery date: 1930 Length of average day: 6.38 Earth days Length of average year: 247.7 Earth years Type of atmosphere: CH 4 Point of interest: If it were closer to the Sun, Pluto would be a comet
  13. 13. <ul><li>How are comets formed: Comets were formed in the Big Bang. The core heated up but not enough to melt the ice on top. </li></ul><ul><li>Where do they come from: Comets come from the Oort cloud and the Kuiper Belt </li></ul><ul><li>What is the tail of a comet: The tail of a comet is the melted off dust and gas from the comet when it gets close enough to the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Discovery date: 2500BC </li></ul><ul><li>Some Famous comets: Halley's comet, Hyakutake, Hale-Bopp </li></ul>Comets
  14. 14. <ul><li>The inner planets are the four closest planets to the sun. They are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. </li></ul><ul><li>The inner planets are mostly made of rock and are generally smaller and denser than the outer planets. </li></ul><ul><li>They also have less moons than the outer planets and don’t have any rings around them either. </li></ul>Summary About Inner Planets
  15. 15. <ul><li>The outer planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. They are also known as the gas giants. </li></ul><ul><li>They are known to have more moons than the inner planets and some have rings made out of ice and rock. </li></ul><ul><li>The inner and outer planets are divided by the asteroid belt. </li></ul>Summary About Outer Planets
  16. 16. <ul><li>What it is: The Oort cloud is a circular region of comets that surrounds the solar system out to more than 1,000 times the distance between Pluto and the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Formation: It was formed in 0001BC. It is believed that the objects in it were once close to the sun but were then pulled away by the planets gravity </li></ul><ul><li>Location in Solar System: It is found past Pluto. It may even extend to the end of the universe </li></ul><ul><li>Items found in it: Comets and other small individual things </li></ul><ul><li>Point of interest: The Oort cloud is the farthest from the sun that is still in the solar system </li></ul>Oort Cloud
