Mercury


Mercury

MERCURY

  • The smallest planet in the solar system

  • Closest to the Sun

  • Rotates three times on its axis for every two times around the Sun

  • Does not have any atmosphere

  • Water may exist at the North or South poles


Mercury venus1

Mercury & Venus

Venus


Venus

VENUS

  • SIMILAR SIZE TO Earth

  • Thick atmosphere that traps in lots of heat

  • Has continents and deep valleys

  • Rotates backwards

  • One day is longer than one year


The inner planets

The Inner Planets

Earth


Earth

EARTH

  • THE ONLY PLANET WITH LIFE ON IT

  • THE Moon is moving away from it at around 2-3cm per year

  • Has a magnetic field that protects us from solar winds

  • Tides are controlled by the Moon and the Sun

  • The only planet with active tectonic plates


The inner planets1

The Inner Planets

Mars


Mercury venus

MARS

  • Red due to rich iron content

  • Water is present at both poles

  • Home to the largest volcano in the solar system

  • Has season and wind storms, much like Earth

  • Has two tiny moons that are probably captured asteroids


The outer planets

The Outer Planets

Jupiter


Jupiter

JUPITER

  • The largest planet in the solar system

  • Has more than sixty moons

  • The highest gravity of any planet

  • The surface is made of gas ad clouds

  • Protects the inner planets by capturing rogue asteroids


The outer planets1

The Outer Planets

Saturn


Saturn

SATURN

  • Has the most prominent rings of all the outer planets

  • Would float in water

  • Has weather systems and storms

  • Has the second largest moon in the solar system (Titan)

  • Titan has lakes on its surface and a thick atmosphere


The outer planets2

The Outer Planets

Uranus


Uranus

URANUS

  • Totally tilted on its side

  • Roughly 4 times the size of Earth

  • Has violent storms due to the uneven heating of its surface

  • Has many rings and many moons

  • May have a core filled with trillions of diamonds


The outer planets3

The Outer Planets

Neptune


Neptune

NEPTUNE

  • Has massive storms with super fast winds

  • Its moon Triton will one day be destroyed by gravity

  • Was discovered using Math, not observations

  • Is similar in composition and size to Uranus

  • Has lots of ice in its atmosphere, contributing to its blue color
