Hi guys, I have something very interesting to tell you about, guess what? Oh, you guessed it from the title didn’t you? Yes, it is about space. Well, let us stop the small talk and start talking about space.
Space is our solar system but there is more to it. You might already know this but let me recap it for you. The first planet is Mercury, the smallest planet in the solar system. The second planet is Venus which is sometimes hot and sometimes cold. Then comes the third planet which is the planet we are living on currently, why don’t you take a guess? Yeah, it is our beloved earth. Earth is full of water and land, many people and animals live in it. Next comes the planet know as ‘the red planet.’ It is Mars.
Now it is time to introduce the biggest planet in our solar system. Which is…. Jupiter! The sixth planet is Saturn. It has rings around and looks very pretty with them. I wish I could walk on its rings. The seventh planet is Uranus. Uranus also has rings but not as much as Saturn. Next planet is Neptune. Neptune is ,well…. a nice planet.
You might have heard that there was another planet called Pluto but it is no longer considered in the solar system and has been made a dwarf planet. You might be having a question in your heads why did they remove Pluto? Why is Pluto no longer a planet? Here is the answer to it: The International Astronomical Union (IAU) downgraded the status of Pluto to that of a dwarf planet because it did not meet the three criteria the IAU uses to define the full sized planet. Essentially Pluto meets all the criteria except one it “has not cleared its neighboring region of other objects”. So that was the answer to your question.
Now let us see about a very important star. You might already be guessing it, yes it is the sun. The sun gives us light and makes us sweat. It comes up in the morning and goes at evening. It rises in the East and sets in the West.
Now I have something to tell you. Have you ever heard of asteroids or black holes? Black holes are like a place where gravity is so strong that nothing can escape from it.
Asteroids are like tiny pieces of rock that float in space and collect a lot to make a full sized planet.
Wow that was a lot of interesting information today. Remember, don’t ever forget this information it will help you in the future. So do type in how you liked the blog and tell me what you think I can write next. Will see you in the next blog!
