    Interesting Facts
    If you have a weight of 110 pounds and you decided to go to Mercury, you would only weigh 41.5 pounds there! If you weigh 170 pounds and you went to Mercury you would have a weight of 64.2 pounds. If you were born on February 19, 1996 your next birthday on Mercury would be February 7, 2010. If your date of birth is June 19, 1995 your next birthday on Mercury is February 26, 2010. If you have a birthday of July 10, 1995 your next birthday on Mercury is March 19, 2010. If you wanted to make a model of the solar system for a science fair project with the sun measuring 615 milimeters, Mercury would only measure 2.1 milimeters in diameter.

    The United States has lanched six probes in the direction Jupiter. Pioneer10, Pioneer-Saturn, Voager 1, Voage 2, Ulysses, and Galileo. Pioneer 10 was launched in 1972. It flew within 81,000 miles of the planet. On December 3, 1973 the probe revealed the effects of Jupiter's radiation belt on a spacecraft. Pioneer-Saturn flew within 27,000 miles of Jupiter. the probe collected data on Jupiter's Great Red Spot, magnetic feild, and atmoshpereic pressure. It also got close up pictures of the planet's polar regions. The Voyager 1 and 2 flew by the planet in March and July of 1979. They found lightning in Jupiter's clouds on the folw pattern of said coluds. The space probe that actually went to Jupiter was Galileo. Galileo was launched in October 1989. Galileo studied Jupiter's magnetic feild. It also found that Jupiter's rings were made up of kicked up dust from when meteriods crashed into the planet's four already mentoined moons. Galileo also showed that Jupiter's outermost ring is actually two rings, one inside another. Galileo's mission was extended in 1997 and again in 1999. Eventually, the craft ran low on fuel. In September 2003, mission managers purposly crashed Galileo into Jupiter's atmosphere to avoid any risk of the craft crashing into and contaminating Jupiter's moon, Europa.
    Some interesting facts about Jupiter is that a person wieghing 110 pounds would weigh 260 pounds on the planet. Likewise, a 170 pound person would wiegh 401.8 pounds. If Jenny, Jessa, and I lived on the planet our next birthdays would be (in order from the names): Tuesday, January 25, 2019; Wednesday, August 28, 2019; and Thursday, May 2, 2019. Or if we built a scale model and the Sun was 615 millimeters Jupiter would be 63.1 millimeters.

    Satellites that have explored Jupiter are: Mets, Adrastea, Amalthea, Thebe, Io, Europa, Gandymede, Callisto, Leda, Himlia, Lysithea, Elera, Ananke, Carme, Pasiphae, Sinope. The years of mission from Jupiter were 1964-1969.
    If you weigh 110 pounds on Earth, You would weigh 260 pounds on Jupiter. If you weigh 170 pounds on Earth. You would weigh 401 pounds on Jupiter. If your birthday was January 11, 1996 you r next birthday wouldn’t be until Wednesday October 2, 1019 on Jupiter. If your birthday was December 3, 1995 your next birthday wouldn’t be until Saturday August 24, 2019.

    Climate:
    The average temperature for Neptune is -373 F. This is the coldest planet in our solar system. Neptune isn't just a huge planet, but it has the strongest winds in the solar system at 1,250 mph. The famous Great Dark Spot disappeared from sight in 1991, but it came back in the northern hemisphere. The planet also has other storms in its quickly changing atmosphere, storms are constantly coming and going. Most winds on the surface of Neptune move in the opposite direction of the planet's rotation.

    Now that you know some of the basic information you should learn a little about the history. The person who discovered Uranus was a man named William Herschel. He discovered it on March 13, 1781. William Herschel was a British astronomer. He made over 2,500 discoveries most of them were deep sky objects. He also helped build and improve a reflecting telescope. The planet Uranus was named after the Greek God of the sky. Every planet has a symbol, Uranus’ planet symbol looks like this…(nineplanets). {http://static.newworldencyclopedia.org/thumb/f/f1/Uranus_symbol.svg/365px-Uranus_symbol.svg.png}

    There are many interesting facts about Uranus. I was born on October 30, 1995. My next birthday on Uranus would be November 3, 2079. For example if you weighted 110 pounds on Earth you would weigh 97.7 pounds, and if you weighted 170 pounds on Earth you would now weigh 151.1 pounds on Uranus. If you had to make a model of the solar system with the sun being 615 millimeters you would have to make Uranus 20.7 millimeters(weight/age/solar_system).

    solar system.
    Saturn was named after the Roman god of agriculture Cronus. Saturn was found by Galileo Galilei in 1610.
    In 1973 NASA launched a probe to study Saturn and Jupiter. This probe was called the Pioneer-Saturn. Pioneer-Saturn sped by Jupiter in 1974 and was within 13,000 miles of Saturn on September 1, 1979. This led to the discoveries of the two outer rings of Saturn.
    In 1977 two space probes called Voyager1 and Voyager 2 went to study Saturn. They confirmed the existence of seventh ring and that the rings are made of ringlets.In 1997 the Cassini probe studied the rings and satellites it orbited Saturn in 2004.
    ​Saturn has the most complex system of rings in the solar system. Saturn's rings are made of ice chunks and rock particlesthat range in size from the size of a fingernail to the size of a car.They were first observed by Galileo in the 17th century.

    gaseous composition.
    Saturn's atmosphere is 75% hydrogen,25%helium,and traces of water,methane,ammonia,and rock .
    Each day on Saturn takes 10.2 Earth hours. A year on Saturn takes 29.46 Earth years; it takes 29.46 Earth years for Saturn to orbit the sun once.
