-Neptune-

Area 1: Essential Data
We are researching the planet Neptune.
Neptune has eleven moons.
It's atmoshere consists of hydrogen, helium, and methane.
It's the eighth and final planet from the sun.
Neptune is 4,496 million kilometer from the sun. It takes 160 days to revolve and sixteen hours seventeen minutes to rotate.



The blue clouds of Neptune are mostly frozen methane, the main chemical in natural gas -- a fuel for heating and cooking on Earth. The other object shown is Neptune's moon Triton.

Area 2: History

Area 3: Physical properties
Neptune's mass is 102.4X10^24.
It's diameter is 30,760 miles.
It's average temperature is -346° Fahrenheit.
It's average density is 1,638 kilograms.
It's escape velocity is 23.5 kilometers per second.
Neptune doesn't have distinct internal layering.
There is a rocky core and an internal heat source.
On Neptune's surface there is a huge storm called the Great Dark Spot.

Area 4: Planet Exploration
It was explored by the Voyager 2 in 1977, on the exploration there were 9000 photos taken to research the planet's features.
One of the greatest things found on the mission was the Great Dark Spot.

Area 5: Interesting Facts
If you weighed 110 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 123 pounds on Neptune! Also, if you were to weigh 170 pounds on Earth you would weigh 191 pounds on Neptune!
Then if you were born on November 12th and went to Neptune, you would have your next birthday on August 28th, 2160.
If you were making a model and the Sun's size was 615 millimeters, Neptunes size would be 20millimeters.
The dark blue clouds on Neptune are usually frozen methane gas.
Neptune is more than 7 times the size of Mars, and more than 150 times as heavy.
Neptune and Pluto's orbits intersect.
