Solar System

The last gas giant, and now the last planet, is even more stormy than Jupiter with winds reaching up to 1,300 mph! Neptune is not visible to the naked eye and was discovered using math! Only recently have we seen it through satellites and probes.

SOLAR SYSTEM

Mercury is our solar system's smallest planet since Pluto got the boot. It's a rocky planet, with virtually no atmosphere. Aside from its red color, it looks very similar to our Moon with large craters covering most of its surface.

Venus is mostly rock and solid matter similar to the other small planets in the solar system, but its atmosphere is so thick it would crush a human before it could land. In fact, probes being sent to Venus have been crushed within minutes!

Welcome home! Earth is by far the most diverse planet in the solar system. Good thing, too! Otherwise we wouldn't be here! We will spend a lot of time studying Earth throughout the year, so get comfy!

Jupiter is the largest planet it the solar system. In fact, because of its large size and gaseous state most astronomers consider it a "dead star." But don't be fooled--Jupiter is covered in constant, extremely powerful storms.

We continue with the gaseous giants with Uranus, although it is so cold this far from the sun that it, along with Neptune, have been nicknamed "ice giants." Though Saturn gets all the credit, Uranus also sports some rings.

Known for its iconic rings, Saturn is also a gaseous giant. While smaller than Jupiter, it is still 95 times the size of Earth! It has 62 moons plus very small particles making up the rings.

Formation of our Solar System

Quite possibly the most speculated planet in the solar system, Mars is the most similar planet to Earth. Like the first three planets, Mars is also made of solid matter (notice a pattern yet?) However, Mars is not suitable for life (sorry Martians).
