All of the other bodies in the solar system large enough to maintain an atmosphere have their own weather systems, ranging from Earthlike to almost unimaginable.
Science News What's the weather like on other planets? Members of the Mars experiment have been living in splendid isolation for nearly days, but what woud the weather be like on other planets of the solar system?
However, visitors would be advised to either wrap up very warm, or slap on lots of SPF 50, depending on which part of the planet they stop off at — temperatures vary from C to C between the scorching subsolar point and freezing poles.
Mars End in sight for 'Mars' astronauts 06 Sep The fourth planet from the Sun, Mars may have seen some heavy precipitation in the past but visitors these days would have to content themselves with strapping on their ice skates to explore the chilly polar regions.
Expect to see blue sunsets and sunrises. Passing sandstorms on the horizon; take shelter.
Jupiter Gigantic Jupiter is a gas planet, made up of hydrogen and helium. At times the size of Earth, Jupiter gives off more heat than it gets from the Sun.
Storms are highly likely as high pressure forces helium to become liquid, causing heavy rain, and winds of up to kph may be expected. Watch out for ammonia clouds, likely to be a common feature.
Saturn The sixth planet from the Sun, Saturn is also made up of gas. The second-largest planet in the Solar system is not a hospitable place, with winds of up to 1,kph, temperatures up to 14,C at the core and a layer of ice 10 kilometres thick.
Cloudy days expected, made up of ammonia, hydrogen and helium. Every 30 years or so, a super-storm called the Great White Spot brews up. Saturn is best avoided at this time.
Uranus Stormy weather is forecast for this gas-and-ice planet, which is the third-largest and seventh from the Sun. Blue clouds of methane gas are expected, and visitors are advised to wear thermals to ward off the C chill.
The blue planet — furthest from the Sun — is also aptly the coldest, with temperatures plummeting to C. Another gas giant but with an icy core, expect similar weather to Uranus but at the more extreme end. Winds can reach 2,kph.A brief outline of some of the different factors which would affect habitation of the planets in our solar system- authorSTREAM Presentation.
Planet Facts There are 8 planets in our solar system, they are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
With the exception of Neptune and Uranus the other 6 planets can be seen unaided and all 8 are visible with a small telescope or binoculars.
Planet Facts. Our solar system has eight planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. With the exception of Uranus and Neptune, each of these planets can be seen unaided.
All eight planets can be see through the use of an inexpensive amateur telescope or binoculars. The blue planet Neptune is the farthest one from the sun and, like Uranus, is a very cold place.
Its surface temperature is a chilly F ( C). Because of its distance from the sun and its large orbit, one year on Neptune is Earth years. Sep 06, · The baby of the Solar system and closest to the Sun, smallest-planet Mercury has no atmosphere, so its weather forecast is usually fairly dull.
However, visitors . Have each student sketch a space probe that lands on or hovers above the chosen planet. Require students to include the following: at least three instruments that will measure at least two different weather conditions.
