Solar System

Reasons we Can live on Earth

  • reason one- we have water unlike any other planet.
  • reason two- earth is at the right distance from the sun.
  • reason three- we have air and oxygen to breathe.
  • reason four- the atmosphere is at a reasonable temperature.
  • reason five- we are not drenched with lava or storms at all times.

What it is not, (covered in lava and storms all the time)

Why we can't live on other Planets.

  • For Mercury- Mercury is too close to the sun so it is too hot, at night it gets too cold, and there is no liquid water on Mercury.
  • For Venus- Venus can reach up to 450 degrees Celsius, there is no oxygen, and the pressure is 90 times as great as on Earth.
  • For Mars- Mars is -184 degrees fahrenheit, there is oxygen but not enough to sustain life, and there is no magnetic field to protect us from cometic radiation.
  • For Jupiter- Jupiter doesn't have a solid surface, the chemicals would kill us, and outer areas are extremely cold.
  • For Saturn- Saturn's wind speed is 1,000mph, the gas isn't breatheable, and the temperature is -300 degrees fahrenheit.
  • For Uranus- Uranus has no oxygen for us to breathe, temperatures are at -350 degrees fahrenheit, and there is no solid surface.
  • For Neptune- Neptune has no solid surface, has winds up to 1,200mph, and temperatures range from -360 to 900 degrees fahrenheit.

Facts of the Planets

  • Mercury resembles our moon
  • Earth is the most dense planet
  • March is named after Mars
  • Saturns nickname is jewel
  • Jupiter has a liquid metal ocean
  • Venus is the sixth largest planet
  • Uranus has two sets of rings
  • Neptune's cloud cover has a blue tint

Comparing Earth to Venus


  • The sun rises in the east and falls in the west for the Earth, for Venus it rises in the west and falls in the east.
  • The Earth has one moon, Venus has none.
  • Earth is third from the sun, Venus is second closest.
  • As it takes the Earth 24 hours to rotate on its axis, it takes Venus 243 Earth days to rotate on its axis.
  • It takes the Earth 365.2 days to orbit around the sun, and it takes Venus 225 Earth days.
  • Venus is a rocky, dusty, waterless, expanse of mountains, where Earth is 70% water, 30% land, and has air that we can breathe.


Earth vs. Venus

Earth Compared to Jupiter

  • Jupiter's diameter is 10 times greater than Earth's
  • Jupiter has over 300 times the mass of Earth
  • Jupiter is 5 times farther away from the sun than Earth
  • If you way 180 pounds on Earth you would weigh 426 pounds on Jupiter
  • Jupiter has 63 moons and growing and the Earth only has one
  • One year on Jupiter is 11.9 Earth years.
  • One day on Jupiter is 9.8 hours
  • One year on Earth is 365 days
  • One day on Earth is 23.7 hours

The End

That's all Folks!!
