    questions in astronomy today is the how our solar system formed? Not only does the answer adds an insight to other similarly forming systems, but also satisfies our curiosity about the origin of our species. It is extremely unlikely that astronomers will ever know with absolute scientific clarity how our system originated, they can however construct similar theoretical models with faiths of gaining a better understanding. With that being said a simple understanding of the current physical characteristics of our solar system would help analyze its origin. Our solar system the place we all call home, lies about 26,000 light years from the sun, the center of our galaxy (The Milky Way). The story of how planets came…

    What is the solar system? The solar system is the what we call home, it is the collection of the eight planets and their moons. These celestial objects orbit around the sun, although this was not always the case back in 140 AD Claudius Ptolemy contemplated with the idea or theory of a geocentric universe. The literal definition of geocentrism is having the earth as the center of the universe and the at the other celestial objects orbiting the earth. Theses celestial objects are called planets.…

    Composition of the universe; What it is made of? How is the solar system expanding? What is a black hole? How do planets form? All of these questions are pretty basic, but there is more to this universe, and how it formed, than you think. Scientists have been trying to find out the answers to all these questions, but it still is not enough for a good explanation. Without the understanding of all these questions, it is impossible to come to any firm conclusions about how the universe evolved. For…

    Solar System Explanation The parts of the solar system are the Sun, Planets, the Kuiper Belt(meteors), the Main Belt(asteroids), comets, dwarf planets, and moons. The sun is located in the center of the universe and all of the other objects orbit around it. The sun only rotates about every 25-36 Earth days. The sun is the closest star and a heat source for almost all the planets. All of the planets orbit around the sun but all at different paces. For example, It takes Earth 365 days to orbit…

    Brianna Susnak Mini-Project #1 1. The six steps of the formation of the solar system are: • Gravitational collapse—the protostellar cloud collapses into a rotating disk. This disk increases in temperature and rotation rate, due to the conservation of energy and angular momentum. The rotating cloud is flattened into a disk, and the materials in the disk move in a circular motion. The material in this disk forms planets that orbit in the same way that the material from which they are formed…

    Planets and moons within the solar system are different in terms of composition, geologic activity, interior structure, magnetic field, and atmospheres. We can deduce each of these properties through routine astronomical observations, spectroscopic/remote observations, laws of physics, solar system modeling as well as direct sampling. Given that many economists and government officials object to using our resources to visit other objects physically, by studying our solar system we will continue…

    In our solar system, there are the nine planets. They are Mercury, Venus, earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. These planets was formed when clouds of gas and dust collapsed with gravity in space. Earth is the third planet from the sun. Throughout the solar system, Earth is the unique place where life can exist. This planet contains atmosphere with oxygen, with lands and oceans on its surface. The ocean covers roughly 70 percent of the Earth's surface and besides that 30…

    "life" roughly 14 billion years ago when space, time and even the atoms in our bodies formed in less than a blink of an eye. The universe expanded rapidly - from the size of a pin's head to that of the entire Solar System in less than a few seconds, and it is still growing to form the cold, dark and inhospitable vastness that we know today. Among all the…
