Solar System

Sun- the star that is the central body of the solar system, around which the planets revolve and from which they receive light and heatAtmosphere- the gaseous envelope surrounding a heavenly body. Earth's Magnetic field- the magnetic field that extends from the Earth's interior to where it meets the solar wind, a stream of charged particles emanating from the SunOzone-a form of oxygen, O 3, with a peculiar odor suggesting that of weak chlorine, produced when an electric spark or ultraviolet light is passed through air or oxygen. It is found in the atmosphere in minute quantities, especially after a thunderstorm, is a powerful oxidizing agent, and is thus biologically corrosiveWater-a compound of hydrogen and oxygenMagnetosphere-the outer region of the earth's ionosphere, where the earth's magnetic field controls the motion of charged particlesAstronaut-a person engaged in or trained for spaceflight. Space walk-a task or mission performed by an astronaut outside a spacecraft in spaceZero Gravity-the condition in which the apparent effect of gravity is zero, as in the case of a body in free fall or in orbitSolar System- comprises the Sun and the objects that orbit it, either directly or indirectly. Of those objects that orbit the Sun directly, the largest eight are the planets that form the planetary system around it, while the remainder are significantly smaller objects, such as dwarf planets and small Solar System bodies such as comets and asteroids.

April 12, 1961: Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarion competes the first manned space flight, orbiting the Earth in 108 minutesMay 15, 1961: U.S. launches first americans astronaut, Alan Shepard Jr., into space on a suborbital flight

Feb. 20, 1962: John Glenn becomes first american to orbit Earth, completing three orbitsJune 16-19, 1963: Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space, completes 48 orbits.

May 29, 1999: Discovery becomes first shuttle to dock with the international space station, a multinational, permanent, orbiting research laboratory2023: Man travels and lives on mars

Feb. 7, 1984: Astronaut Bruce McCandless performs man's first untethered spacewalk with a Manned Maneuvering Unit off the Challenger space shuttleDec. 21, 1988: Cosmonauts Vladimir Titov and Musa Manarov return to Earth from Soviet space station Mir after man's longest space flight - 365 days, 22 hours, 39 minutes

Dec. 21, 1968: First manned spacecraft to orbit moon, Apollo 8, comes within 70 miles of lunar surfaceJuly 20, 1969: Man walks on the moon. Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin of Apollo XI spend 21 1/2 hours on the moon, 2 1/2 of those outside the capsule

The Effects of Zero Short-term effects of zero gravity are that your sense of up and down get confused. The vestibular system can no long tell where the cieling is and where the ground is. There is also a disruption in their proprioceptive system, making it seem like you have no arm or legs. Disorientation can cause astronauts to become queasy for a few days.Long-term effects are bone and muscle loss. Although astronaut work out in space, it takes months of rehab on earth to get back the muscle. There is also a change in eye pressure while in orbit.
