Solar System Jigsaw Can you build the Solar System? WHAT TO SEE The Sun The Sun is a star that lives at the centre of the Solar System. Its huge gravity holds the planets in place. The planets The planets all revolve around the Sun. There are nine in total - Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Moons Moons rotate around their parent planet. Earth has one moon, but some planets have over 30. Only Mercury and Venus do not have any moons. Asteroids Asteroids are rocky bits of debris up to 1,000km (620 miles) across. Most live in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. They are the remnants from early planets that collided and were torn apart. Comets Comets are dirty snowballs of ice and dust that revolve around the Sun in long orbits. When they approach the Sun they heat up, leaving a trail of gas behind them, which looks like a tail.

The Planetary Data System (PDS)
The PDS archives and distributes scientific data from NASA planetary missions, astronomical observations, and laboratory measurements. The PDS is sponsored by NASA's Office of Space Science. Its purpose is to ensure the long-term usability of NASA data and to stimulate advanced research. PDS is continually upgrading and updating its archives, to better serve the needs of its user communities. Learn more about PDS
PDS Nodes - The Best of Planetary Data!
The PDS includes seven university/research center science teams, called discipline nodes. These nodes specialize in specific areas of planetary data. The contributions from these nodes provide a data-rich source for scientists, researchers and developers. You can visit them through the links on the PDS Nodes navigation bar, below. You will learn more about the archives of each node, and about the education and public outreach services that these nodes provide.

    29. A Scale Model Of The Solar System
    online Java applet This 3d solar system applet can be rotated and zoomed with the mouse. Below it are links to other online gravity simulators and resources for building solar system simulations.
    This applet is the obligatory scale model of the solar system. Distance is in AUs, velocity in AUs per hour, mass in units of 10 pounds, yielding G=1.2944x10 . Initial positions are accurate to about 5 digits. The simulation doesn't account for relativity, oblateness of the sun, solar winds, asteroids, galactic gravitational flux, and any number of other things. The numbers in the corner count how many displays have been done and the fractional error in energy conservation. It starts 1am on January 1, 1999. To start or stop, click. To spin around the sun, click in the middle and drag. To rotate and zoom, click near the edges and drag. The sun remains in the center; there are no controls yet to change that, or to change the distance from the sun. I also have and applet description , some online references for how to build a solar system simulator, a set of stable orbits filling 3-space , a page exploring gravitation with Java , a simulation of Cruithne , and Klemperer rosettes sun mercury venus earth+moon mars jupiter saturn uranus neptune pluto The US Navy provides the coordinates of all planets now, and at any other time give or take a century. I used this for my initial coordinates. (Position is at 1am on January 1, 1999, and velocity is half of 2am minus midnight.)

    35. The Copernican Model: A Sun-Centered Solar System
    A suncentered solar system had been proposed as early as about 200 BC by Aristarchus of Samos (Samos is an island off the coast of what is now Turkey).
    The Copernican Model:
    A Sun-Centered Solar System
    The Earth-centered Universe of Aristotle and Ptolemy held sway on Western thinking for almost 2000 years. Then, in the 16th century a new idea was proposed by the Polish astronomer Nicolai Copernicus
    The Heliocentric System
    In a book called On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Bodies (that was published as Copernicus lay on his deathbed), Copernicus proposed that the Sun, not the Earth, was the center of the Solar System. Such a model is called a heliocentric system . The ordering of the planets known to Copernicus in this new system is illustrated in the following figure, which we recognize as the modern ordering of those planets. The Copernican Universe

    In this new ordering the Earth is just another planet (the third outward from the Sun), and the Moon is in orbit around the Earth, not the Sun. The stars are distant objects that do not revolve around the Sun. Instead, the Earth is assumed to rotate once in 24 hours, causing the stars to appear to revolve around the Earth in the opposite direction.
    Retrograde Motion and Varying Brightness of the Planets
    The Copernican system by banishing the idea that the Earth was the center of the Solar System, immediately led to a simple explanation of both the varying brightness of the planets and retrograde

    Provides an overview of the sun and each of the nine planets. Also includes biographies of researchers.
