  • Hawaii is moving towards Japan at the speed of 10 cm a year. This is because they are on different tectonic plates

  • Natural gas doesn't have an odor strong smells are added to it by humans so it can be detected when there are leaks 

  • Magma is the hot liquid rock under the surface of the Earth it is known as lava after it comes out a volcano 

  • Earth is the third planet from the sun and the denset and fifth largest planet in the solar system

  • It is also the largest of the Solar system's four terrestrial planets

  • It is sometimes referred to as the world or the blue planet

  • Earth formed approximately 4.54 billion years ago and life begin in the first billion year

  • About 71% of the surface is covered with water

  • The remaining part of the earth consist of mountains and islands

facts Mars

  • Mars or the Red planet as it is sometimes known has a dusty rocky and a thin atmosphere

  • Its relatively calm conditions and close proximity to earth make it the most likely destination for future planet exploration by humans

  • It has already been visited by a number of mars rover in successful robotic mission

  • The polar ice caps consist of frozen Col or dry ice which lies over layer or ice 

  • Mars has very weak gravity which cannot hold on to the atmosphere

  • Temperature ranges from -120 c in winter and  25 c in summer

  • Mars has many channel plains and canyons on the surface which have been caused by water erosion in the past

  • It is not thick enough to trap the sun's heat like Venus so the planet is very cold

  • Mars has a very thin atmosphere made mostly of carbon dioxide

  • Even the atmosphere is a pinkish red colored by tiny particles of dust storms which continually change its surface

  • Mars is nicknamed the red planet because it is covered with rust like dust

facts Jupiter 

  • Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system 

  • Jupiter has many moons circling around it 

  • Four of its moon are bigger than Pluto 

  • Jupiter has a very strong magnetic field you would weigh two and a half times as much as you would on Earth 

  • Its been raging for over three hundred years 

  • Jupiter has many storms raging on the surface most notably the big red spot which is largest hurricane in our solar system

  • Surrounding the core is an ocean of liquid hydrogen about 1000 kilometers deep 

  • At the center of Jupiter is a rocky core slightly bigger than Earth but weighing about 20 times more 

  • In the blackness about 1000 km down the pressure squeezes the atmosphere so hard that it becomes like liquid 

  • It is so big that more than 1300 Earths could fit inside it 

  • Jupiter is the largest planet in out solar system 

facts Saturn 

  • Storms winds race around atmosphere 800 km/h 

  • Saturn has a very strong magnetic field which trap energy particles resulting in high levels of radiation 

  • Saturn is not a peaceful planet 

  • Like Jupiter , Saturn also has many moons which surround it 

  • If we could fir Saturn into a bathtub it would float 

  • The rings are made up of million of ice crystals some as big as houses and others as small as specks of dust It is surrounded by a system of rings that stretch out into space for thousands of kilometers 

  • Saturn is second largest planet of our solar system 

  • The most beautiful planet in our solar system is Saturn due to its spectacular ring system 

  • Saturn is a gas giant that features many extreme physical features and atmosphere

facts Neptune 

  • Neptune is a large planet that experiences extreme atmosphere weather conditions 

  • After the demotion of Pluto it now holds the distinction of being further away from the sun than any other planet in our solar system 

  • Neptune is a large planet nearly four times the size of Earth 

  • Neptune suffers the most violent weathers in our solar system 

  • Neptune is covered in thin wispy white clouds which stretch out around the planet 

  • Neptune is a large water planet with a blue hydrogen methane atmosphere and faint rings 

facts Pluto

  • Pluto was the smallest and furthest planet from the sun in our solar system 

  • The atmosphere of Pluto consists of nitrogen with some carbon monoxide and methane 

  • In 2006 Pluto was demoted to the status of dwarf planet 

  • Because it is so far away from the sun it is very cold with temperatures ranging from -235 c to -210 c 

  • Pluto consists of rock with a very thick coating of ice
