Mercury - Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, is only a little larger than the Moon. ITs surface is covered with tall mountains and deep craters.
Mars - Mars looks red because it is covered with rust-colored soil.
Jupiter - It is so big that all of the other planets could fit inside it.
Saturn - Saturn is not very dense and would float in water. Its rings are made of pieces of dust and ice varying from as small as a pea to as large as a car.
Uranus - Iranus spins on its side. The narrow ring around Uranus is made of black ice.
Neptune - Neptune, the blue planet, has winds that blow up to 1,500 miles per hour. Its blue color is caused by methane in its atmosphere.
Star - A star is a giant ball of slowing gas. Stars twinkle because we see them through layers of moving air in Earth's atmosphere.
A constellation is a group of stars that people connect with imaginary lines to form a design. There are 88 constellations in the sky.
A planet is a large object that orbits a sun but doesn't make its own light. Planets reflect the light from stars. They don't twinkle because they are closer to Earth than stars are.
Gravity is the force that keeps objects in orbit. Gravity keeps us from floating off the Earth!
A moon orbits a planet the way a planet orbits a sun. Some planets, such as Saturn, have many moons.
An asteroid 소행성 is a rocky object, much smaller than a planet, that orbits a sun.
A comet 혜성 is made of ice and dust and orbits a sun.
A meteor 유성 is a space rock that crashes into the surface of a planet or moon.
A shooting star isn't a star at all. It's a meteor that burns up when it gets close to Earth.
A slolar system is all of the planets, moons, asteroids, comets and other matter that orbits a sun.
A galaxy is made up of billions of stars, gas and dust held together by gravity. Planet Earth is in the Milky Way Galaxy.
The universe is all of the light, matter and energy that exists in time and space.
초등학생에게는 이 책 하나만 있으면 태양계에 궁긍한 것이 있을 때 찾아 보기 좋을 것이다. 은하수, 별똥별, 혜성, 유성, 은하계 등등 초등학생 저학년이면 이 책이면 충분할 것 같다. 백과사전이나 좀더 두꺼운 책으로 넘어가기전에 우주에 존재하는 각각의 명칭을 익히기에 이용하면 좋겠다. 추천한다.
