Planet structure

Planet Structure

  • Solid rock core, gas and ice mantle inside


Atmosphere

Atmosphere

  • 80% hydrogen,19% helium,0.5 methane and traces of other compounds

  • diameter: 49,532 km (equatorial) mass: 1.0247e26 kg


Missions

Missions

  • How long are its years and days?

  • A year on Neptune lasts for 165 Earth years.

  • A day on Neptune is shorter than a day on Earth.

  • This gas planet spins, or rotates, once every 16 hours.


Motion

Motion

  • orbit: 4,504,000,000 km (30.06 AU) from Sun.

  • Neptune is the eight planet from the sun.

  • Surface gravity (Earth=1):1.12

  • Average temperature:-225c

  • Length of sidereal day:16.11

Other

  • The rings of Neptune are made up of fairly small, very dark clumps of rock.

  • Scientists think that most of these clumps are about the size of a small car.

  • There is also a large amount of dust in the rings. one of the rings has a twist in it.

  • Uranus orbit didn't seem to obey the laws of physics.

  • Something was making Uranus move unexpected.
