S1 Science Planet Earth topic
Where are we? S1 Science Planet Earth topic

the sun and all the celestial bodies which orbit the sun.
a self-luminous celestial body consisting of a mass of gas held together by its own gravity in which energy is generated by nuclear reactions. Planet Galaxy the sun and all the celestial bodies which orbit the sun. Moon made up of billions of different “solar systems”. Solar System made up of billions of different galaxies. Star Match up using pen tool a sphere of rock and/or gas which orbits a star. Universe a sphere of rock and/or gas which orbits a planet.

Learning outcomes Success criteria
Understand the place of the Earth in the Universe in terms of how big the Universe is. State how long it would take us to reach each of the following in a rocket as fast as we have ever built: Neptune Our next nearest star (after the sun) State at what speed light travels in kilometres per hour. State how long it would take us to reach each of the following travelling at the speed of light: Explain what is meant by a “light year”. State how many light years away: Our nearest star is Andromeda is 1 2 3 4 5

To get to Neptune at the speed of light 25 000 years
Distance to Andromeda To get to Proxima Centauri by rocket 4.2 years To get to Proxima Centauri at the speed of light km/h 2.5 million light years The speed of light 4.2 light years To get to Neptune by rocket 4 hours Distance to Proxima Centauri The fastest rocket we have ever built km/h

10 800 000 000 km/h To get to Neptune at the speed of light
