THE FINAL FRONTIER
Hi, I’m Nick and I am going to tell you about our Solar System.
Our Solar System began around 4.6 billion years ago when a
molecular cloud of interstellar gas collapsed.
These clouds collapsed and turned into a star.
Most of the cloud formed the Sun. Other material from
the cloud flattened around the Sun forming planetary discs—some formed solid objects which grew larger and stuck together.
These balls then form the cores of the planets…
Jupiter-The Gas Giant
Mars (The Red Planet)
smaller and denser than
moons and no rings circling
Mars Surface(many similarities to Earth)
These polar caps appear to be partially composed of dry ice and frozen water.
Large Canyon Systems
Large canyon system appears to have been formed mostly by local tectonic activity (local motion of surface) rather than by erosion.
Running Water Erosion
Huge Shield Volcanoes
Volcanoes on Mars are now extinct, volcanoes are called shield volcanoes, because they look like shields.
Channels that appear to have been cut by running water similar to those found on the Earth.
old volcanoes and impact craters
tectonics that cause erosion
