OUR SOLAR SYSTEM,AND THE UNIVERSE, In this LIFEPAC you will take an imaginary trip into space You will. learn about the sun moon and planets Hopefully you will sense the. excitement astronomers experience every time they peer into space. through their huge telescopes, During the first three days of Creation God made our planet Earth. The fourth day He reached into the vastness of outer space He filled. that space with an infinite number of other heavenly bodies. Many years ago a shepherd boy named David was watching his. sheep The night was dark and still The moon rose over the horizon. A million stars began to twinkle in the sky like diamonds Reaching. for his harp David expressed his gratitude to a loving God He. sang Psalm 19 1 The heavens declare the glory of God and the. firmament sky sheweth his handiwork, Since the day of Creation boys and girls have wanted to know more.
about the universe How big is it What force moves the sun the. moon and the stars through space How are the heavenly bodies. kept on their courses,OUR SOLAR SYSTEM AND THE UNIVERSE Unit 8.

Unit 8 OUR SOLAR SYSTEM AND THE UNIVERSE,1 A TRIP THROUGH SPACE. Have you ever looked up into the sky and watched the clouds float by. Have you ever looked into the dark night as David did and wondered. what is far out in space, In this section of your LIFEPAC you will take a quick imaginary trip to.

Our Solar System, Are you ready for a trip through our solar system Then jump into your imaginary. spaceship Buckle your seatbelt Turn on the oxygen supply Give the signal to blast off. We leave our planet Earth at the speed of light Light travels 186 282 miles 299 792. kilometers per second As we leave the earth s atmosphere we notice that the sky is. black and the stars can be seen all day, In less than two seconds we reach our nearest neighbor the moon While we do not. plan to stop here we get a quick glimpse as we whiz by We take a quick snapshot of. the moon s surface from our window We notice the moon s deep craters broad dark. plains and lofty mountains, At the moon we are about 240 000 miles 386 160 kilometers from Earth Our.
navigator takes another sighting of the stars and charts a course that will take us. toward the planets but away from the sun Because the sun is a glowing ball of hot. gases with a surface temperature of 11 000 degrees Fahrenheit 6 092 centigrade. we will be careful to pass it at a safe distance,Our Solar System. As we travel away from the sun we shall leave behind two planets Mercury and. Venus Mercury is the second smallest of the planets Mercury and Venus are closer to. the sun than Earth Ahead of us are five more planets Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus. and Neptune All of the planets revolve around the sun About four minutes after leaving. Earth we pass Mars We notice what looks like a dust storm blowing over a desert. These desert areas probably give Mars its red look as we view it through a telescope. from earth,Section 1 7,OUR SOLAR SYSTEM AND THE UNIVERSE Unit 8. We have now been in flight four or five,minutes Rushing on toward Jupiter the. largest of the planets we wonder about,the strange red spots moving across its. As we speed past Jupiter we come to,Saturn the second largest planet Saturn.
has at least six thin rings and 23 satellites,The satellites look like our moon. In a few moments we fly past Uranus,Sun Jupiter Saturn Uranus and. Fifteen satellites have orbits around, After passing Uranus we finally reach Neptune Uranus and Neptune are so far from. the sun that they are very cold and dark Neptune is more than three times larger than. Pluto is no longer considered a planet and has recently been reclassified as a dwarf. planet one of many in the Kuiper Belt the ring of icy objects that astronomers now. know marks the outer edge of the solar system The solar system is now considered to. have eight planets, Pluto follows an orbit around the sun that is not always the same Sometimes Pluto is. farther from the sun than Neptune During the fourth week of January 1979 Pluto. moved closer to the sun than Neptune Pluto was in this part of its orbit until February. We have now traveled in imagination over 3 5 billion 3 500 000 000 miles. 5 600 000 000 kilometers in about five hours Looking back we notice that our sun is. only a bright star shining among millions of other stars. Perhaps it is time to start back to planet Earth If we were to visit one of the nearest. stars in our galaxy Alpha Centauri we would have to travel for more than four years. at the speed of light If we wish to go to the farthest edge of our galaxy the Milky Way. it would take us about 120 000 years Then if we could continue on to other galaxies. beyond we would need to travel for another twenty million years Even at the speed of. light that would be a long long trip wouldn t it,8 Section 1.
Unit 8 OUR SOLAR SYSTEM AND THE UNIVERSE,Do this activity. 1 1 Name the eight planets in our solar system in order from the sun Do not forget. Write true or false,1 2 Jupiter is the smallest planet. 1 3 The two planets closest to the sun are Mercury and Venus. 1 4 Saturn has 23 satellites,1 5 Blowing dust gives Mars its red color. 1 6 Saturn has five rings,Match these items,1 7 moon a Jupiter. 1 8 a star b nearest star, 1 9 Alpha Centauri c three times larger than Earth.
1 10 red spots move across the d our nearest neighbor in space. 1 11 Neptune,Section 1 9,OUR SOLAR SYSTEM AND THE UNIVERSE Unit 8. Fill in the blanks with the correct words or numbers. 1 12 Light travels at the rate of 186 282 miles per. 1 13 If we could travel through space at the speed of light we could reach the moon. in less than seconds, 1 14 At the speed of light it would take us more than years to reach the. outer rim of the Milky Way,1 15 In our solar system we have planets. Our Big Universe, For many years people have had questions about the universe In ancient times they. thought the world rested on the back of an elephant When asked what the elephant. stood on they answered on the back of a turtle Most ancient people believed the. sun moon and stars revolved around the earth Some also taught that the earth was. flat because to them it looked that way They were afraid that if one went too far in any. direction he would fall off the edge, These beliefs in the form of legends myths and stories were.
accepted as facts when they really were opinions Opinions. are beliefs that people have without positive knowledge. or proof The fact that God created the universe has even. today been ignored by many persons Instead they have. accepted opinions and ideas to replace the truth that God. has revealed in the Bible, The astronomers eyes About three hundred seventy years. ago an instrument was made to help scientists learn more. about space The story has been told about a Dutchman. who made eyeglasses His name was Hans Lippershey One. day unknown to him his children slipped into the shop where. he worked They began to play with some glass lenses. One of the children picked up two lenses and looked out A telescope. 10 Section 1,Unit 8 OUR SOLAR SYSTEM AND THE UNIVERSE. the window He was surprised at what he saw He noticed that a church which was far. away looked much closer and bigger He called his father His father rushed in and was. amazed at what he saw By chance Hans son had made a very important discovery He. had discovered that if he held a lens near his eye and another lens a little farther away. objects at a distance appeared to be much closer and bigger than they really were A. short time later an Italian scientist named Galileo heard about this discovery He started. Read these objectives The objectives tell you what you will be able to do when you have successfully completed this LIFEPAC Each section will list according to the numbers below what objectives will be met in that section When you have finished this LIFEPAC you should be able to 1 Tell about the opinions of the ancients in relation to the origin of the universe 2 Explain the difference
