external image uranus.jpgUranus is the seventh planet from the sun. Uranus was the first planet to be discovered.external image moz-screenshot-1.jpg William Herschal was the first one to formally discover Uranus.











saturn.jpg-Saturn is the only planet of the Solar System that is less dense than water!!


  • Saturn gets its name from Saturn, the Roman God of Agriculture
  • Saturn’s rings are visible from earth with even a small telescope
  • Winds on this planet can reach above 1,100 miles per hour
  • A Saturn day is only 10 Hours and 14 Minutes

  • 240px-Venus-real.jpgVenus is the second planet from the sun.
    It is about the same size as Earth.
    It is the hottest planet in our solar system.














    mars.jpgMars is the 4th Planet from the sun.
    It is called the red planet.
    It is named for the mythological god of war.
  • Mars has a mass of 0.108 [Earth=1]












    This is Pluto below. external image pluto.jpg

    Pluto was confirmed that it is not a planet, but some scientists still think it is a planet. NASA sent a space shuttle to Pluto 3 years ago and it should arrive in 6 years.Pluto is the farthest planet from the sun.













    Jupiter.jpgJupiter
    5th planet from the sun,
    Largest planet in our solar system,
    It has 23 moons
    It has an ongoing storm called the Great Red Spot.
    In 1979, the Voyager 1 spacecraft discovered that Jupiter has rings!

    In 1601 Gallaleo Gallalei discovered 4 moons of jupiter.
    Jupiter takes about 12 years to orbit the sun and rotates in about 10 hours. This short Jupiter day is amazing since the the planet is roughly 11 Earth diameters wide.








    300px-Neptune.jpgNeptune is the eighth planet from the sun . Has thirteen moons

    .
    It's atomosphere appears blue because it is composed widely of methane. Winds on this planet can reach over 300 mph!

  • - Taylor J. and Taylor S.

    Neptune gets its name from the Roman god ,Neptune, god of the sea.

    external image blue_marble_globe_west_wall.jpgThe only planet that has life on it.
    Earth is the only planet that has water on it. Sophia and MaribethThe mass of the Earth is approximately 5.98×1024 kg. It is composed mostly of iron (32.1%), oxygen (30.1%), silicon (15.1%), magnesium (13.9%), sulfur (2.9%), nickel (1.8%), calcium (1.5%), and aluminium (1.4%); with the remaining 1.2% consisting of trace amounts of other elements.

Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun and is the third largest in size.

This picture is an artist's rendition of a black hole. A black hole is a point of infinite density in Enstein's theorized spacetime. Spacetime is an interlocking fabric of space and time. This theoretical fabric is bent in the presence of matter, like a bowling ball on a rubber sheet. Black holes come into exsistance after a star uses up its hydrogen fuel and implodes in a massive explosion , known as a supernova. At this point the remnents of the star, along with its core, are so dense they break spacetime into a black hole. Some belive these holes are mirrored by others fexternal image 200px-Black_Hole_Milkyway.jpgrom our universe or others. Once linked , they form a universal shortcut known as a wormhole. Any matter sucked into a black hole is streached by tidal forces until it becomes thin and long. This process is known as spaghettification. Once spaghettified, the matter is burned to ashes by emmense energy. Periodically, the matter and energy is ejected from the poles of the black hole in jets. These jets can extend for millions of miles, before breaking up.
