Solar System Powerpoint Tester

  1. 1. Planets, Moons and Stars
  2. 2. <ul><li>Our solar system is the system of planets and other objects that orbit our sun. There are eight planets and many moons . Along with asteroids , comets , meteoroids and tiny particles of rocks and dust. The sun , which is actually a star , is the largest object in the solar system and holds everything in place by its gravity . It contains about 99% of the mass of the solar system. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>A planet is a body that is in orbit around the Sun, has enough mass for its self-gravity to overcome forces (nearly round) shape, and clears the neighborhood around its orbit. </li></ul><ul><li>Planet order (closest to the sun to furthest): </li></ul><ul><li>MERCURY </li></ul><ul><li>VENUS </li></ul><ul><li>EARTH </li></ul><ul><li>MARS </li></ul><ul><li>JUPITOR </li></ul><ul><li>SATURN </li></ul><ul><li>URANUS </li></ul><ul><li>NEPTUNE </li></ul>PLANETS
  4. 4. <ul><li>Position: Closest planet to the Sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere: Like Earth’s moon, very little. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape: Many craters, a little ice. Cliffs and valleys present. </li></ul><ul><li>Temperatures: Super-heated by the sun in the day. At night temperatures reach hundreds of degrees below freezing. (Not as warm as you would think). </li></ul><ul><li>Year (Full rotation around the sun): 88 days. </li></ul><ul><li>Moons: 0 </li></ul><ul><li>Rings: 0 </li></ul>Mercury
  5. 5. <ul><li>Position: 2 nd planet from the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere: Thick enough to trap heat, hurricane winds, lightning, and acid clouds. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape: Volcanoes and deformed mountains. </li></ul><ul><li>Temperatures: Intense heat. </li></ul><ul><li>Year (Full rotation around the sun): 225 Earth days. </li></ul><ul><li>Moons: 0 </li></ul><ul><li>Rings: 0 </li></ul>Venus
  6. 6. <ul><li>Position: 3rd planet from the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere: Suitable air pressure to have life. Air is made of oxygen. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape: The only planet that has liquid on the surface, rocky, land formations. </li></ul><ul><li>Temperatures: Suitable for life. Ranges from locations on Earth. </li></ul><ul><li>Year (Full rotation around the sun): 365 Earth days. </li></ul><ul><li>Moons: 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Rings: 0 </li></ul>EARTH
  7. 7. <ul><li>Position: 4th planet from the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere: Thinner air than Earth. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape: Frozen water below the surface, rocky, dusty, and has craters. </li></ul><ul><li>Temperatures: Like Earth, but drier and colder </li></ul><ul><li>Year (Full rotation around the sun): 687 Earth days. </li></ul><ul><li>Moons: 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Rings: 0 </li></ul>Midnight sun on Mars Mars
  8. 8. <ul><li>Position: 5th planet from the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere: Colorful clouds, until it is squished unto liquid. Cold and windy, giant storms. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape: Thick super hot soup. </li></ul><ul><li>Temperatures: Extremely cold at clouds. Extremely hot and cold radiation. </li></ul><ul><li>Year (Full rotation around the sun): 12 Earth years. </li></ul><ul><li>Moons: 62 </li></ul><ul><li>Rings: 3 </li></ul>Jupiter
  9. 9. <ul><li>Position: 7th planet from the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere: Composed mostly of gas with no solid surface. Cloud strips. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape: No solid surfaces, high pressures turn gas into liquids. </li></ul><ul><li>Temperatures: Rings made out of water ice, really cold. </li></ul><ul><li>Year (Full rotation around the sun): 30 Earth years. </li></ul><ul><li>Moons: 61 </li></ul><ul><li>Rings: 7 division ring system </li></ul>Saturn
  10. 10. <ul><li>Position: 7 th planet from the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere: Gets thicker and thicker, until it is squished unto liquid. Cold and windy. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape: Layer of superheated water and gases that form bright clouds. </li></ul><ul><li>Temperatures: Extremely cold at cloud tops and superheated towards the center. </li></ul><ul><li>Year (Full rotation around the sun): 84 Earth years. </li></ul><ul><li>Moons: 27 </li></ul><ul><li>Rings: 11 </li></ul>Uranus
  11. 11. <ul><li>Position: Furthest from the sun (Cannot see without a microscope). 8 th planet. </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere: Very Windy, cold clouds, a layer of methane gas (giving it a blue color), storms as large Earth. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape: Scientist think it may have an ocean of super hot lava. </li></ul><ul><li>Temperatures: Cold </li></ul><ul><li>Year (Full rotation around the sun): 165 Earth years. </li></ul><ul><li>Moons: 13 </li></ul><ul><li>Rings: 6 </li></ul>NEPTUNE
  12. 12. <ul><li>Pluto is NOT considered a planet anymore! </li></ul><ul><li>It is classified as a dwarf planet . </li></ul><ul><li>Temperatures: Extremely cold, covered with frost. </li></ul><ul><li>Year (Full rotation around the sun): 248 Earth years. </li></ul><ul><li>Moons: 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Pluto is very hard to see, if with a really powerful microscope. </li></ul>Think of Pluto as Disney’s dog, NOT a planet! Pluto
  13. 13. <ul><li>The sun is a star . </li></ul><ul><li>A ball of hot glowing gases. </li></ul><ul><li>It gets hotter as you go deeper. </li></ul><ul><li>Central force that has a high influence on planets orbits. </li></ul><ul><li>Without the sun’s energy and heat there would be no life on Earth. </li></ul>Sun
