Solar System

The Solar System The solar system still to this day one of the most fascinating subjects of study in the science world. In our time, we are one of the first generations to see the planets of our solar system up close, and we have been able to view evolution of these planets through time. Our solar system consists of a middle aged star called the Sun, 9 planets, about 100 moons, thousands of asteroids, millions of icy bodies, and many comets revolving around all of it. We can begin by looking...

Solar System

Solar System About 4,700 million years ago, the Solar System was just a spinning disc of dust and gas. The dust began to collect together and our Sun formed at the centre. Around Sun, lumps of rock joined up to form smaller bodies and, like the Sun, they heated up. But because they were smaller they soon cooled down and became planets. Sun accounts for 99.85 per cent of mass of the solar system. About 1.3 billion earths would fit inside the sun. The solar system consists of the Sun; the nine planets...

SOLAR SYSTEM

SOLAR SYSTEM PLANETS MERCURY • The closest planet to the sun, Mercury is only a bit larger than Earth's moon. Its day side is scorched by the sun and can reach 840 degrees Fahrenheit (450 Celsius), but on the night side, temperatures drop to hundreds of degrees below freezing. VENUS • The second planet from the sun, Venus is terribly hot, even hotter than Mercury. The atmosphere is toxic. The pressure at the surface would crush and kill you. Scientists describe Venus’ situation as a runaway greenhouse...

Solar System Nebular Hypothesis

AQUA-MARIE Solar System Nebular Hypothesis. According to the nebular hypothesis, these clouds collapsed from some kind of turbulence that caused it to heat up and eventually turn into a star. My understanding of the origin and evolution of the solar system is still very limited. Development is made by pushing through the scientific process of hypothesis, prediction, measurement, theory, and hypothesis. However, there is still a lot of guesswork to be tested before we can really talk about...

Stars and Solar System

Stars A star is a massive, luminous sphere of plasma held together by gravity. The nearest star to Earth is the Sun, which is the source of most of the energy on the planet. Solar System The Solar System consists of the Sun and its planetary system of eight planets, their moons, and other non-stellar objects. It formed 4.6 billion years ago from the gravitational collapse of a giant molecular cloud. The vast majority of the system's mass is in the Sun, with most of the remaining mass contained...

Earth and Our Solar System

Earth is the only planet in our solar system that sustains life, and therefore one of the most intriguing planets because of its capabilities. Each of the seven other planets that orbit the same sun as Earth is interesting in its own way. Some planets share similar characteristics to those found on Earth, while other planets are completely different. An analysis of these terrestrial bodies, using comparative planetology, will allow us examine these qualities. However, before beginning such a process...
