Planets and there Distances



The Formation of Earth

- It takes Earth 365 days to revolve around the sun(a year).- Earth is a terrestrial planet.Terrestial planets are made up of rocks or metals which have a hard surface. These planets have a molten heavy metal core, few moons, and a variety of topological features like valleys, volcanoes, and craters. During the Creation of the Solar System there were more terrestial planets, but they were either destroyed or likely merged.- Gravity: 9.80665m/s2 (reffers to the acceleration that the earth inpacts to object on or near the surface)-Earth does not have rings,but the Earth's one natural satellite, the moon, is more than one qualter the size of the Earth itself.-Atmosphere: The atmosphere is a mixture of nitrogen (78%), oxygen (21%), and other gases (1%) that surrounds Earth. High above the planet, the atmosphere becomes thinner until it reaches space. It is divided into five layers. Most of the weather and clouds are found in the first layer.INTERESTING FACTS:- Earths name comes from the Anglo ''Saxon word erda'' which means ''ground or soil''.-Earth is the only planet not named after a mythical god.-A human being can survive unprotected in space for about two minutes.- 97% of the water on Earth is salted.-Earth is smoother than a bowling ball.

Highest temperature ever recorded on Earth= 136 Degrees Farenheit (58 Degrees C) Lowest Temperature: -126 Degrees Farenheit, and -88 Degrees Celsius at Vostol Station in Antartica.

Apperance: Earth is the only planet in our solar system to have water on its surface. The surface of this planet contains of 70% water,97% of it is made up of oceans. The landmarks that make up Earth's surface include water bodies, volcanoes, deserts, and other land areas. From space all you can see on Earth's surface are the continents, oceans, polar caps, and clouds.
