Swainsona formosa (Sturt's desert pea) Geography and distribution Widespread in dry parts of Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales and the southern part of the Northern Territory, it has also been recorded in Queensland.

Swainsona formosa (Sturt's desert pea)

Herbarium specimen of Swainsona formosa collected in South Australia in 1926. Description Overview: A horizontally-lying or ascending, herbaceous plant that is glaucous (bearing a waxy bloom), and covered with long, whitish, silky hairs. The stems are slightly angular and tinged with red. Leaves: The leaves have petioles (leaf stalks), are borne alternately on the stem and are divided into about 16 leaflets. Flowers: The peduncles (inflorescence stalks) are erect, and each bears a racemose umbel of four to six very large flowers (about 90 mm long), each on a drooping pedicel (flower stalk). In the wild, the flowers can be red through to pink or yellow, and albino forms have been recorded.

The Solar System

The Solar System is full of planets, moons, asteroids, comets, minor planets, and many other exciting objects. Learn about Io, the explosive moon that orbits the planet Jupiter, or explore the gigantic canyons and deserts on Mars. What Is The Solar System? The Solar System is made up of all the planets that orbit our Sun. In addition to planets, the Solar System also consists of moons, comets, asteroids, minor planets, and dust and gas. Everything in the Solar System orbits or revolves around the Sun. How Did The Solar System form? This is an important question, and one that is difficult for scientists to understand.

Scientists believe that the Solar System evolved from a giant cloud of dust and gas. At the center of this spinning cloud, a small star began to form. Why Do Things Float? An Easy Lesson.

The word “Kakuru” means “rainbow serpent” in the local Aboriginal language, probably because the opalised fossil sparkles with many colours. Other South Australian fossil material includes a juvenile hypsilophodontid vertebra from Andemooka, and an ankle bone of a large ornithopod, perhaps something like Muttaburrasaurus, from Coober Pedy.
