About Neptune Profile
Neptune is the eighth and farthest planet from the Sun in the Solar System. It is the fourth-largest planet by diameter and the third-largest by mass. Among the giant planets in the Solar System, Neptune is the most dense.
- Mass: 17.15 Earth Mass
- Orbital period: 165 light years
- Gravity: 11.15 m/s²
- Neptune's diameter is 49, 530 Km
- It is 3.9 times larger than earth
- Neptune has 13 moons
- It has 5 rings
- The length of one day (compared to earth days) is 16.1 hours
- The length of one year on Neptune (compared to earth) is 164.8 Earth years
- Neptune is a gaseous planet
- If you weigh 100 pounds on earth, you would weigh 110 pounds on Neptune
- Average temperature is -346 degrees Fahrenheit (-200 degrees Celsius)
- Neptune is made up of many gases
- Living on Neptune? People could not survive on Neptune because it does not have oxygen.
2. What types of accommodations are on the planet so that humans can live?
-To find life on Neptune, the planet would need to have a source of energy that bacterial life can exploit, as well as a standing source of liquid water.
3. What types of clothing would humans have to wear to survive?
-Everything can keep you warm
4. What is the quality of the atmosphere of the planet?
-It mostly consists of hydrogen and helium, with trace amounts of methane, water, ammonia and other ices. But unlike the other gas planets in the Solar System, Neptune’s atmosphere has a larger proportion of the ices. It’s the methane in the planet’s upper atmosphere that give it its bright blue color.
5. How would humans adapt to these conditions?
-They need special food, special clothing, oxygen.
6. How would humans protect themselves on the planet?
-Use guns, nuclear weapons, armor
7. How would humans navigate to get around the planet?
-GPS, tour guide
8. What activities could humans be involved in while visiting the planet?
-You could inhabit it by building a bio-dome and an ice-retrieving robot. You could use a C02 Converter or a machine that converts helium and hydrogen to oxygen. Or you could hydroponically plant a flower to grow.
9. Could they take side trips to any moons?
- Neptune is the Roman God of the Sea. In Greek, Neptune is called Poseidon.
- Neptune has a storm similar the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. It is commonly known as the Great Dark Spot and is roughly the size of Earth
- Neptune has an average surface temperature of -214°C – approximately -353°F.
- Neptune has the second largest gravity of any planet in the solar system - second only to Jupiter
- The orbit path of Neptune is approximately 30 astronomical units (AU) from the Sun. This means it is around 30 times distance from the Earth to the sun
- Neptune cannot be seen without a large telescope and was first seen in 1846 from the observatory in Berlin.
- The discovery of the planet Neptune was one of the most exciting discoveries in astronomy.
