									Solar System Exploration
    The Space Shuttle
• “Nasa” stands for National Aeronautics
  and Space Administration. It has been
  the United States official of launching
  man into outer space.
• The Space Shuttle is made to transport
  astronauts to all the different planet in
  outer space.
Sun
 • Our Solar System
   star, the Sun, is
   the closest star
   to earth at a
   mean distance
   from our planet
   of 149.60 million
   kilometers.
           Mercury
• The small, rocky
  planet, Mercury,
  is the closest
  planet to the
  sun.
• It speeds around
  the Sun in a
  wildly elliptical
  orbit.
Venus
  • At first glance,
    if the Earth had
    a twin it would
    be Venus.
  • The two planets
    are similar in
    size, mass,
    composition,
    and distance
    from the sun.
              Earth
• Earth, our home
  planet, is the
  only planet in
  our solar system
  known to harbor
  life that is
  incredibly
  diverse.
Moon
  • The moon has
    guided timekeepers
    for thousands of
    years.
  • More than 70
    spacecrafts have
    been sent to the
    moon and 12
    astronauts have
    walked on its
    surface.
            Mars
• The red planet
  Mars has a
  small rocky
  body that is
  very earth-
  like.
• It has inspired
  wild flights of
  imagination
  over the
  CENTRIES.
Jupiter
    • The most
      massive planet
      in our solar
      system with
      four planet –
      sized moons,
      Jupiter forms a
      kind of
      miniature solar
      system.
            Saturn
• Saturn is the
  most distant of
  the five planets.
• It is made mostly
  of hydrogen and
  helium.
• It has thousands
  of rings made up
  of billions of ice
  and rock
  particles.
         Uranus
•Uranus, like
 Saturn, is
 encircled by
 five narrow
 rings which
 are named
 Alpha, Beta,
 Gamma, Delta,
 and Epsilon.
Neptune
   • The eighth planet
     from the sun,
     Neptune, was the
     first planet located
     through
     mathematical
     predictions rather
     than observations of
     the sky.
               Pluto
• Our smallest,
  coldest, and most
  distant planet
  from the sun.
• Pluto has a dual
  identity, not to
  mention being
  enshrouded in
  controversy since
  its discovery in
  1930.
     A Nasa Astronaut
• A career as an astronaut requires vasts
  amounts of education and training. To
  become an astronaut it takes two years of
  training and over twenty skills to learn.
