some words to know before we continue
Some words to know before we continue
  • Gravity- force that attracts you or anything to an object with greater mass
  • Dwarf planet- is a similar to a planet, but is technically too small to be considered one
  • Orbit-the curved path of a celestial object or spacecraft around a star, planet, or moon
  • Atmosphere- the area of gases surrounding the earth or another planet
  • Star- is a massive, bright sphere of gases held together by its own gravity
our galaxy
Our galaxy
  • We live in a galaxy called the milky way
  • A galaxy is a group of stars and other space stuff (dust, gases, planets)
  • The stars tend to spin around a center of high gravity, sort of like the planets spin around the Sun in the Solar System
  • Galaxies are huge and can have trillions (way bigger than billions!) of stars
the planets
The planets





Poor Pluto





The sun

the sun
The Sun
  • The Sun is a star that is in the center of the Solar System
  • Our sun is 5 BILLION years old!
  • It was once just a big area of gas and dust that was condensed by gravity
  • The Sun’s distance from the Earth is 150 million km (93 million miles)
  • On Mercury you weigh only 38% of what you weigh on Earth.
  • One side of the planet can be 800 degrees Fahrenheit when the other can be -280 degree Fahrenheit at the same time.
  • Fastest orbiting planet
  • Planet nearest to the sun
  • Is the cloudy planet
  • Venus has tons of volcanos just like earth
  • Rotates in the opposite direction of Earth
  • Venus is the hottest planet in the Solar System
  • The only known planet to have life
  • The Earth is an oldie but a goodie, scientists think that Earth is about 4.5 to 5 billion years old!
  • About 70% of earth is water
  • Approximately 90% of volcanic action happens in our Earth\'s oceans!
  • Mars is nicknamed the red planet
  • It is covered with rust-like dust even the atmosphere is a pinkish red
  • Mars has many massive volcanoes and is home to Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in our solar system
  • Unfortunately Mars has no life as we know it so…no aliens
  • Largest planet in the Solar System
  • Has a Great Red Spot from a storm system that is more than 400 years old
  • 9 hours and 54 min=1 Jupiter day (shortest day)
  • Pressure is so great it would crush a spaceship.
  • 2nd Largest planet in the Solar System
  • 95 times more massive than earth.
  • Saturn has the largest rings of any planet, the rings are made of icy particles and dust
  • Most moons of any planet in our solar system
  • Uranus appears blue-green in color
  • It’s axis of rotation is tilted 90 degree
  • Uranus has 27 moons
  • If you weigh 100 lbs on earth, your weight on Uranus would be 89 lbs
  • A year on Uranus is equal to 84.01 Earth Years
  • Neptune has visual belts of clouds
  • Just like Jupiter it has storms happening all around the planet
  • It has a dark blue spot
  • Neptune is the farthest planet from the Sun
pluto the dwarf planet
Pluto the dwarf planet
  • It is considered too small to be a planet so it was put in the dwarf planet category
  • Smaller than Earth’s Moon
  • If you weigh 100 lbs, your weight on Pluto would be 7 lbs!!!
  • Since being declassified as a planet, Pluto’s technical name is now 134340
