On 1st December Pod3 are going on a trip to Murphy's Bush. It will be an all day walk. We have to take Drink bottle, Hat, Raincoats, Named Morning Tea, Sunscreen. This walk will hopefully teach Pod3 to care for our environment. Each group has at least 20 people in each group. The walk will be sweat taking but awesome. In my opinion I think this will be a blast!! N.L

Diameter: 6,787 km

Atmosphere: Seems to have "lost" most of its gases at some time in the past. Present atmosphere too thin to protect life from deadly ultraviolet radiation. Mostly carbon dioxide (95%), with some nitrogen (2.7%) in and traces of oxygen and other gases. Small amounts of water vapour form fog and clouds near the surface.

Temp: highest -31degrees Celsius to lowest - 86 degrees Celsius

Moons: two -Deimos and Phobos.

Surface: Very rocky and gassey

Distance from Sun: 227,900,000 km.

Sunlight: Half as bright as on Earth

Rotation: 24 hours 37minutes

Orbit: One Mars 687 Earth days

Gravity: a 45kg man would weigh 53kg.Atmosphere:mostly hydrogen with some helium.Distance from the sun:1,427,000,000km.Surface temprature:30,000 c.Size diamter: 120,600km.s.p h.f.

atmosphere: jupiters atmosphere is made from 90% hydrogen and 10%helium.
size/diameter: jupiter's diameter is 88,650miles.
interesting facts:jupiter has at least 39 moons

Our gravity on Earth pulls two objects depend on two things:Mass, Distance. Atmosphere: 76% nitrogen and 21% oxygen. Distance from the Sun: 149.6 million km. Surface temperature : 89.c to 58.c satellites (the moon). Interesting Facts: Seen from space,

There is no gravity on the sun.

It has no atmousfair.

The surface is about 5000 degreas celcias. The core is three times hotter than the surface.

Light from the sun takes eight minutes travel through space and reach the eath
