Design a McBride Planet to Success!
By: Sammi McBride
The axial tilt & its impact on seasons!!!
About my planet's seasons: My planet will stay warm as long as it doesn't rain too much and carry the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.
My background knowledge about axial tilt: The angle between an object's rotational axis and its orbital axis. It differs from orbital inclination.
About my planet's axial tilt: 23.5 degrees ( same as Earth )
Moons? Their orbit? Their impact on tides?
Orbit: 78 Astronomical Unit from the sun
Background on tides: The alternate rising and falling of the sea, usually twice in each lunar day at a particular place, due to the attraction of the moon and sun.
Impact on tides: There will be tons of force pulling on the water because of the combined force of two moons and the sun.
Mass on my planet & its impact on gravity!!!
Background of mass: A measure of the total amount of material in a body, defined either by the inertial properties of the body or by its gravitational influence on other bodies.
Impact on gravity: Same thing as on Planet Earth.
Fun Facts you may not have known!!!
- They’re about 75% hydrogen and 24% helium
- The color of my star comes from its temperature. The coolest stars appear red, while the hottest stars are blue
- For my star, the only thing that defines the temperature of a star is its mass. Blue stars are stars that have at least 3 times the mass of the Sun and up. Whether my star has 10 times the mass of the Sun or 150 solar masses, it’s going to appear blue to our eyes.
- An example of a blue star is the familiar Rigel, the brightest star in the constellation Orion and the 6th brightest star in the sky.
- My planet is named " Planet McBride"
