Story:

Yellow flashed past my eyes as I was running along a winding wilderness path it was so pretty and such a change from the usual trend of today where bricks where everywhere. It seemed peaceful and like nothing in the world could go wrong, but that was before I saw something black flash past my eyes well it was not fast but it was defiantly hard to see. I poked my head though the enormous leaves and I saw what I defiantly did not think to see a gorilla. Well my day was definitely interesting.

The solar system the milky-way is a four and a half billion year old creation that goes around the galactic center at around 200000 km per hour and goes fully around it once in every 250000000 years. The planets are split in to two groups with Mercury Venus Earth and Mars being terrestrial planets and Jupiter Saturn Uranus and Neptune being gas giants. Mercury is the smallest and lightest of all of our planets a mercury year is shorter than a day which leads to enormous rising and falling of the temprecher as well as it not being home to a moon or atmosphere. Venus is one of the brightest or lightest planets in our solar system and the hottest planet by a long margin. Having atmospheric pressure 92 time higher than earth.  Having an untameable greenhouse effect the lowest temprecher is 473 degrees. And like Mercury it also does not have a moon. Earth is the only planet with temprecher able to house humans and water and the only place with human intelligence. And has one moon. Mars is the smallest planet in our solar system other than Mercury.  And can only keep a very small atmosphere with 2 moons. It has the largest mountain in the solar system Olympus Mons being 3 times as tall as Mount Everest. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and is made of hydrogen and helium and has the largest and most powerful storms in existence the largest bring the great red spot being 3 times as large as earth. It has the most moons in our solar system with 67 in total. Saturn is the second largest planet and gas giant in our solar system. As well as having the smallest density of all the planets. Also letting it swim/ float in water. It has rings and is the only planet in these 8 to have them and own 67 moons. Uranus is the smallest gas giant as well as the third largest planet. And is most probably the coldest but is axis is different to the other planets being tilted sideways. And it has 27 moons surrounding it. Neptune is similar to Uranus it is so far away from our main star the sun that 136 earth years is the equivalent to one Neptune year. 2100 km per hour is the highest wind speed on Neptune. As well as it having 14 moons. Mercury is smaller than one of Jupiter’s moons Ganymede. Jupiter alone has 70% of the mass of all of the other planets while Saturn has 20% Uranus has 4% and Neptune has 5% as for the terrestrial planets they contain only 1% all together. Jupiter can pull away dangerous planets or asteroids away from earth preventing us from any damage. But even so Jupiter is considered tiny compared to the sun it takes up 99.86% of the overall mass in our solar system. It mainly consists of hydrogen and helium only 2% is made up of heavier substances like oxygen and iron. At its core the sun combines 620 million tons of hydrogen per second and has plenty of energy to help human life. But trillions of asteroids and comets put in to two belts the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and the Kuiper belt at the outside of our solar system. The objects size can range from a dust partial to a dwarf planet. The most known object in the asteroid belt is Ceres and the most well-known objects in the Kuiper belt are Pluto Makemake and Haumea. It is known as a dense collections of objects that constantly collide but they are so spared out that it is highly unlikely to see two asteroids at once making them quite empty but collisions are still quite common. The makes up four percent of our moons mass and the Kuiper belt is only between 1/25 and 1/10 of earths mass. One day in to the future of many millions of years the sun will die out and Mercury Venus and even earth may be destroyed in 5 hundred million years the temprecher will have increased until at some point in time it will melt earth’s crust. The sun will enlarge until it will either swallow earth or turn it in to lava. When the sun has lost most of its fuel as well as mass. It will shrink into a white dwarf and burn for a few billion years until it goes out forever like a candle and that means that life in the solar system will no longer be humanly possible. It will not even be noticed by the Milky Way though a small part of it has just gotten darker. Human life will either die out or go out in to the universe to find a new home. Why did only Mercury Venus and earth die out when the sun dies out is it because we are so close or that we rely on the sun? Who named all of the planets in our solar system was it the same person who discovered it and how long ago where they named? I now understand the true comparison of all the planets and objects in our solar system and  what each planet has or relies on  in our solar system to keep it in orbit.

Story:

I was gazing up at the crisp winter trees hiding from my big sister. We were playing hide and seek and I was going to win. But that was until she found me I must have been making too much noise or someone was cheating. “That’s not fair” I called at her with tears in my eyes “you always win and you always win how is this fair for me.” “Well its fair because I sad so” she replied back “and who cares if I cheat.” “I do Ella.” And it was from that moment on I knew she cared.

It is an eight month journey for a robot curiosity to earths neighboring planet mars its shields had to withstand a 1600 degrees atmosphere as it landed on mars after they had to slow it down form 20 thousand km per hour to zero which took 7 minutes while moving to the perfect landing spot which they called the seven minutes of terror. Radio dishes in Camera Australia played a big part as they collected signals form curiosity as it landed.  Curiosity is not the first robot on mars but it is the biggest and the best equipped it can analyse rocks and has a drill for tacking samples and a laser. The aim is to learn more about what the red planet is made up off as well as signs of life because mars is most like earth in any of the planets in our solar system. It has an atmosphere and there are signs that their used to be water scientists believe that mars may have inhabited some form of life form in the past.  And they believe that in 35- 40 years there will be humans on mars thanks to Curiosity.I now understand the true difficulty of getting a robot on to another planet in our solar system and why they have done it and how it is helpful for the human race.I now also understand what Curiosity will be looking and searching for in the new planet and what things she has been equipped to do when helping us form a far off planet.When humans travel to mars how will they survive eight months on a space craft and how will they make the planet ready for humans and will robots set it up or will we?

This video was about the origins of astronomy and the people or cultures who have contributed over the years. Ancient Babylon was located near moden Baghdad they had their own form of writing which allowed them to create mathematical models of astrological research which for their time was quite  advanced, those models helped them to create a calendar. As well as being able to predict astrological phenomenon’s. It was the birthplace of moden horoscopic astrology. Maya a group of Mesoamerican Indians some of the records of their knowledge was burned so we now know very little but they used their knowledge to create the Mayan Long Count calendar which used a harder number system with the base of 20 instead of the 10 we use today. But it allowed them to predict the motions of the planets and other things like eclipses or a good time to start something. The Romans had the ancient Greeks who came up with the Ptolemaic system which believes that the earth was at the centre of the universe something that has since then has been proven wrong. A famous mathematician in ancient Greek and was believed to be the best astronomer of ancient times and the father of trigonometry. And they also had the precession of the equinoxes a term for the wobbling of Earth on its axis which helped prove that in about 12 thousand years the North Star will no longer be Polaris but will be begua. I now understand the all the different people cultures and countries who have contributed ideas models signs and languages to the astronomy that we know and so many love today. I now also understand that ancient astronomy of these cultures has changes so much over the many years that the original astronomy is almost lost because of the new generations have lost it. When making or putting together moden astronomy was there any culture that had more or less of an impact then others did?

As I was provoked backwards the ground begun to split and shake. I squinted my eyes closed I am not shure why I did this because what I was about to witness was equally strange and amazing. Two hands begun to rise from the crack in the ground and then out of nowhere they were holding a rope between them. I blinked my eyes and something felt wrong suddenly I was standing in the same spot but I was now 50 years older. The hand structure was still there standing strong but now it was gey but it showed creativeness.
