Our Solar System

13 06 2012

There used to be 9 planets and more than 170 moons in our solar system.

The 9 planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

But in August 2006, the International Astronomical Union decided to re-classify Pluto as a “dwarf planet”, and not in the same category as the 8 planets.

So now there are 8 planets in the solar system.

Each planet goes around the Sun on its own path called orbit.

Anyway we cannot see the paths because they are invisible.

Earth takes about 365 days to orbit the Sun.

This is called one Earth year.

And each moons moves around its planet in its own orbit.

The size of the planet from the smallest to the biggest:

  1. Mercury

  2. Mars

  3. Venus

  4. Earth

  5. Neptune

  6. Uranus

  7. Saturn

  8. Jupiter

On April 12, 1961, Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin became the first person who went to space.

People travel to space in a spacecraft or spaceship.

Goplaga, Hilama and Meido prepared a surprise birthday party for Kamosa. Meido was Kamosa’s human friend who flew Kamosa’s spaceship from planet Earth to Saturn.

Meido

Kamosa was very happy. His friends gave him lots of presents. Meido gave Kamosa an Alienware laptop, an i Phone 4 and an i Pad. Hilama gave Kamosa a computer mouse, a CPU, a computer monitor and a computer speaker. Goplaga gave Kamosa a 4 players chess set, a house, an Adobe Photoshop CS4 CD, an Age of Empires 3 CD and a ‘Halo Wars’ CD.

After the birthday party Kamosa, Meido, Hilama, and Goplaga played the 4 players chess together. Meido won the game! Then, Meido decided to go to Pluto. Kamosa agreed and they all flew to Pluto in Kamosa’s spaceship.

On the way to Pluto, Goplaga saw a bunch of big noodles falling onto Pluto. But Hilama said that it was a giant piece of meat and Kamosa said that it were flying pepperonis. Meido said it was a spaceship flying to Pluto.

And Meido was right, it was a spaceship! The spaceship landed on Pluto.

Kamosa's spaceship and the spaceship that looks like meat, pepperonis and noodles.

When they arrived on Pluto, they met another alien friend named Emoden. Emoden had 2 eyes, 1 nose, 1 mouth, 2 hands and 2 legs. It was Emoden’s spaceship that looked like a giant meat, pepperonis and noodles.

Emoden

Meido said that Emoden was a funny alien.
