Asteroids are chunks of rock, metal, and ice. They can be smaller than a grain of sand or many miles across.
Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere on this planet traps sunlight and heats up the surface. This is called the greenhouse effect. It's hot enough here to melt lead.
Cool facts about the sun.
From earth, this place is the biggest thing in the night sky.
Good luck.
I'm looking straight at Olympus Mons. Now there's a volcano.
I'm on the closest neighbor to the sun.
I'm on the only planet named after a woman.
I'm standing where you can see the sun rise and set twice in the same day.
Let's see. Ganymede, io, Europa and Callisto. Yep, all the Galilean moons are here.
Liquid gases.
Liquid metal.
Nice try, but I'm not here.
Oh, this is a great place, but I'm not here.
One of the strangest moons in the whole solar system. Miranda is here. It looks like somebody blew it apart and put it back together.
One of this planet's moons, Triton, has geysers that shoot out liquid nitrogen.
Rocky core.
Scientists used to call this planet Earth's twin.
Some are on this planet lasts 21 years. What? Whoo. Of course winter lasts 21 years too.
Some people claim that this place is made of green cheese, but don't be fooled. It's really made of rock and covered in dust.
Sometimes this planet is at the very edge of the solar system.
Sunspots are actually giant magnetic storms that erupt on the sun surface and are darker and cooler than the rest of the sun. Solar flares are magnetic storms too.
The brightest of all the planets we can see from Earth is where I am right now.
The four biggest moons here are called the Galilean moons. They're named for the man who found them, that world famous astronomer Galileo.
The mountains, craters and other features on this planet are named after famous women.
The regulars here is up to my ears.
The solar system at a glance.
The solar system by Miss Frizzle.
The sun is a huge glowing ball of gases at the center of our solar system. More than 1,000,000 Earths could fit inside it.
The sun is just one of trillions and trillions of other stars in the universe, and it's not even the biggest. It only looks big from Earth because it's so close.
The surface here is covered by a slippery yellowish Gray dust. In some places, it's 50 feet deep.
There are more moons here than anywhere.
There's at least 16 moons here, some of them bigger than planets.
This could be considered the loneliest planet.
This greenhouse effect is not a healthy happening. And the sulfuric acid?
This is the biggest planet in the Solar system. It's humongous.
This is the smallest planet.
This place has so much red dust that it's piled up in big dunes.
This planet has two moons called Phobos and Dimus. Their names mean fear and panic.
This planet is nicknamed the Red Planet.
This planet is the fastest of all the planets. It zooms around the sun at about 100,000 miles an hour. Woohoo.
This planet so far away that the sun just looks like another bright star to me.
This planet takes 59 Earth days to rotate once.
This planet's moon is geosynchronous, that is, it orbits at the same speed that the planet rotates.
This planet's rotation has gotta roll all its own.
What if this planet's moons? Io is the only known moon in the solar system that has active volcanoes. Ooh, I'm keeping my eyes peeled for lava.
What of this planet's moons? Looks like a giant cantaloupe.
Where I am is the only place beyond Earth that people have visited.
Why Arnold? You look all shook up.
Without the sun, there would be no life on earth, no clouds or no rain either. Without the sun, Earth would be extremely dark.
21 years of summer would be an endless wonder.
