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. Further away from the center of this mass where the star was forming, there were smaller clumps of dust and gas that were also collapsing.

How to Build a Bottle Rocket

Bang Goes the Theory - Hands-on science: Water bottle rockets. Propulsion Activity. From the American Heritage Dictionary: propulsion: is defined as the process of driving or propelling. propel: is defined as to cause to move or sustain in motion.

Propulsion Activity

Propulsion systems are governed by Newton's Third Law: "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. " Rocket Propulsion: Thrust = Mass Flow x Velocity Activity: Controlled Propulsion Experiment - Balloon A balloon provides a simple example of how a rocket engine works. The distance that a balloon will travel when restricted to a straight line is related to the amount of air trapped inside the balloon when it is released. This experiment will allow us to investigate how filling balloons with different amounts of air affect how far they will travel along a straight path. Volume of a sphere: (the amount of air in the sphere) Volume = 1/6 x PI x (Diameter)3. MAKE A BALLOON ROCKET - ScienceBob.com.

You will need 1 balloon (round ones will work, but the longer “airship” balloons work best)1 long piece of kite string (about 10-15 feet long)1 plastic strawtape What to do Tie one end of the string to a chair, door knob, or other support.Put the other end of the string through the straw.Pull the string tight and tie it to another support in the room.Blow up the balloon (but don’t tie it.)
