Nathan Breaux This planet is the smallest in our solar system and is the closest to the sun. this planet has a large iron core and a temperature range of -297f to 801 f. making this a very un inhabitable planet by all means. Its to dry to inhabit with any life from earth. This planet orbits the sun in 88 earth days. Venus is the second planet from the sun and is the closest to earth. This planet is referred sometimes to our sister planet. The atmosphere is mainly sulfuric acid and is very close to the surface and has a pressure 92 times the earths. This planet is also unique because it has no magnetic field which means that composes wouldn’t work here. This planet orbits the sun in 227.7 earth days. Earth is our home planet and is the only planet capable of supporting life in our solar system that we have found yet. Our planet is home to millions of species. And is 70% covered in water. Temperatures range from -89 F to 57.7 C . We orbit the sun in one year or 365days. This planet has one of the highest known peeks in the solar system the mountain is called Olympus Mons. And compared to earth has similar geology, mountains ,valleys EXT. this planet orbits the sun in 779.96 earth days. The temperature rang on this planet is quite cold ranging from -87 C to 5 C. if worse came to worse here on earth this is the only closest planets that would be hospitable enough to live on. This planet is two and a half times bigger then the earth. This type of planet is mainly gas and is known as a gas giant. This planet orbits the sun every 11.9 earth years. This planet is known for its massive storms that seem to never go away. Also, the big red spot which is a storm that is said to have bin going on for thousands of years. The average temperature averages out to about -108° F. Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest planet in the Solar System, after Jupiter. Saturn, along with Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune, is classified as a gas giant. it takes Saturn 10 759 Earth days (or about 29½ years), to finish one revolution around the Sun. Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun and is the third largest in the solar system. It has an equatorial diameter of 51,800 kilometers (32,190 miles) and orbits the Sun once every 84.01 Earth years. The atmosphere of Uranus is composed of 83% hydrogen, 15% helium, 2% methane and small amounts of acetylene and other hydrocarbons. Neptune is the eighth planet from the Sun and the fourth largest (by diameter). Neptune is smaller in diameter but larger in mass than Uranus. it completes an orbit every 164.79 years. On July 12, 2011, Neptune will have completed the first full orbit since its discovery in 1846.
