Enigmas of the Solar System | Documentary Boxset | Knowing the Planets

The Solar System is the gravitationally bound system of the Sun and the objects that orbit it, either directly or indirectly. Of the objects that orbit the Sun directly, the largest are the eight planets, with the remainder being smaller objects, the dwarf planets and small Solar System bodies. Of the objects that orbit the Sun indirectly—the moons—two are larger than the smallest planet, Mercury.
The Solar System formed 4.6 billion years ago from the gravitational collapse of a giant interstellar molecular.......

The Planets

The bestselling authors of Wonders of the Universe are back with another blockbuster, a groundbreaking exploration of our Solar System as it has never been seen before.

Mercury, a lifeless victim of the Sun's expanding power. Venus, once thought to be lush and fertile, now known to be trapped within a toxic and boiling atmosphere. Mars, the red planet, doomed by the loss of its atmosphere. Jupiter, twice the size of all the other planets combined, but insubstantial. Saturn, a stunning celestial beauty, the jewel of our Solar System. Uranus, the sideways planet and the first ice giant. Neptune, dark, cold and whipped by supersonic winds. Pluto, the dwarf planet, a frozen rock.

Andrew Cohen and Professor Brian Cox take readers on a voyage of discovery, from the fiery heart of our Solar System, to its mysterious outer reaches.

Planet Jupiter

Jupiter is the fifth planet from our Sun and is, by far, the largest planet in the solar system – more than twice as massive as all the other planets combined. Jupiter's stripes and swirls are actually cold, windy clouds of ammonia and water, floating in an atmosphere of hydrogen and helium. Jupiter’s iconic Great Red Spot is a giant storm bigger than Earth that has raged for hundreds of years.

Jupiter is surrounded by dozens of moons. Jupiter also has several rings, but unlike the famous rings of Saturn, Jupiter’s rings are very faint and made of dust, notice...

Where Is Planet Nine?

People have always been dreaming of conquering other galaxies and exploring space far away from our home. But the thing is that there are enough enigmas in our own Milky Way galaxy! Even better, there is one right inside our Solar System! This mystery is lurking somewhere on the outskirts of the planetary system, puzzling astronomers to no end.

Once upon a time, scientists noticed that something bizarre and inexplicable was causing chaos out there, in space. A mysterious celestial body was influencing the orbits of six smaller object in Kuiper Belt, far, far away from our home planet. This something got the name of Planet Nine...

Artist's concept of a hypothetical planet orbiting far from the Sun: By Caltech/R. Hurt (IPAC),
Animation is created by Bright Side.

SUMMARY:
- The thing is massive: more than 10 times bigger than Earth and around 5,000 times as large as Pluto!
- Ice giants aren't as massive as gas giants but have a similar atmosphere.
- We used to believe that Neptune is the furthest planet from the Sun. But now, it may turn out that Planet Nine is the champion, being 20 times further away from the center of the Solar System than Neptune!
- If you lived on Planet Nine, your year would last 10,000 to 20,000 Earth's years!
- Until scientists see Planet Nine with their own eyes, they can't say for sure that it exists. But the evidence they have is quite solid.
- Scientists are looking for the planet using infrared equipment. If Planet Nine does exist, it's supposed to leak infrared radiation.
- But then, what if Planet Nine isn't a planet at all? The idea, which first appeared in 2019, suggests that the object that has created all this hullabaloo, might be... a black hole!
- But even if this guess is correct, you have nothing to worry about: Earth isn't in danger. Primordial black holes are too small and weak to cause any serious harm to our planetary system.
- A primordial black hole would explain why hypothetical Planet Nine can't be seen and doesn't produce infrared radiation.
- But one of the main reasons why astronomers would be ecstatic should Planet Nine turn out to be a primordial black hole is the mystery of dark matter!
- Primordial black holes could be the very dark matter astronomers are searching for! Or at least, a kind of dark matter named MACHOs (which stands for massive compact halo objects).

Music free version at

In this segment of our video book, we cover distances inside our Solar System.

We start out with a brief history beginning with how Nicolas Copernicus used planetary retrograde motion to help move us from the Earth-centric view to the Sun-centric view of our Solar System. We work our way through the contributions made by: Tycho Brahe and his detailed observations made with mural quadrants and sextants; Kepler and his mathematics of elliptical orbits; and Galileo with his observations using the newly invented telescope. We conclude this history with Newton and his theory of gravity. Gravity gives us the first opportunity to explain the inverse square law that will play such a central role in celestial distant measurements as we move out to the stars.

We then explain planetary parallax as an extension to triangulation and use it to determine the distance to the Moon. We also illustrate all the additional information that becomes available once the distance is known, such as diameter, area and volume. Next, we take a look at the orbit of Mars and the Earth and the distance of Mars from the Sun, followed by distances of all the planets and dwarf planets from the Sun. During this segment we cover the major moons around each planet. We then focus on the Asteroid Belt. We explain Lagrange Points and cover Jupiter’s Trojan asteroids orbiting two of these points. This takes us to Earth’s Trojan asteroid, 2010 TK7.

We then turn our attention to the Sun. We triangulate the Sun with Venus to calculate our distance from the Sun – one Astronomical Unit. With distance to the Sun known, we calculate its diameter, surface area and volume; the length of Earth’s orbit; the Earth’s velocity around the Sun; and with that, the Sun’s mass. Next, we use Jupiter’s moon Io to calculate the speed of light and with that we calculate how long it takes the Sun’s light to reach the Earth.

We end by adding the parallax rung to our distance ladder.

In Search of Alien Planets in the Universe Documentary - Explore the Universe and Planets

Scientists already know about a vast number of exoplanets, or worlds beyond our solar system: telescopes have helped us catalogue thousands already, with many more to come. But it is far more difficult to know what conditions might be like on those planets, since they are so different.

In order to narrow that down, the researchers behind the new study combined a variety of data to understand how habitable planets around M dwarf stars – which make up 70 per cent of those in our galaxy – might be. Planets around M dwarf stars are thought to be the most likely place for us to find alien life, because they are so common and therefore easier to find.

The study helped them redefine our understanding of whether a planet could be habitable, adding new questions to be asked of planets by taking into account the radiation coming from a star and how the planets rotate.

5 Spacecraft Are Leaving The Solar System. What Did They See In Their Journey?

Five spacecraft are leaving the solar system for good. Though we do not have the technology to land the first human on Mars, we have already accomplished the task of sending our robots into interstellar space.

Pioneer 10: Pioneer 10 was launched in 1972 to explore the planets of the solar system. It achieved the first flyby of Mars, the first trip through the asteroid belt, and Jupiter's first flyby. It was the first time NASA had used nuclear energy to power its spacecraft. So, after Pioneer 10 passed Jupiter in 1973, it still had ample energy to keep going. Initially planned for 21 months, it continued to communicate with Earth for a total of 30 years.

Pioneer 11: The twin spacecraft of Pioneer 10 saw similar success. It orbited Jupiter in 1974. Pioneer 11 became the first mission to ever encounter Saturn in 1979. It revealed what the ringed planet is made of and also discovered new moons of Saturn. Both these crafts are equipped with unique plaques designed to introduce their creators. NASA no longer receives signals from the Pioneer spacecraft.

Voyager 1: Voyager 1 is the farthest spacecraft from Earth and is still in contact with NASA. It was launched in 1977 during a rare planetary alignment that takes place every 175 years. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune were perfectly placed. NASA took advantage of this alignment. Voyager 1 made its flyby of Jupiter in 1979 and passed by Saturn in 1980. But instead of continuing to Uranus and Neptune, the craft changed its route to explore Titan. It's the largest moon of Saturn, having a thick atmosphere and methane lakes. In 2012, Voyager 1 reached the heliopause, a region where Sun's solar wind loses its sway. It became the first spacecraft to enter interstellar space. It is still sending data back to Earth. Voyager 1 is so far that radio signals take about 21 hours to get there. Voyager 1's course could bring it close to another star in some 40,000 years.

Voyager 2: Voyager 2 was launched 15 days before its twin Voyager 1 in 1977. After exploring Jupiter and Saturn, Voyager 2 went on its planned trajectory. It became the first and the only probe to visit Uranus and Neptune to date. It entered interstellar space in 2018 and is still in contact with NASA.
Just like Pioneer, both spacecraft contain identical copies of golden records.

New Horizons: The most recent in the list, New Horizons was launched to explore Pluto. At Pluto, it found signs of ice volcanoes, giant mountains, and even a liquid water ocean. Now, New Horizons is continuing in the footsteps of the Pioneer and Voyager missions.

Neptune By It's Nature Is the Most Mysterious Planet in the Solar System

The blue planet, the farthest out in the Solar System, remains one of Earth's most mysterious neighbours, but scientists now know one thing that they hadn't for the past 165 years: the precise length of its day.

Earlier estimates had set that figure at about 16 hours and 6 minutes. But, in a paper in Icarus1, Erich Karkoschka, a planetary scientist at the University of Arizona in Tucson, now pegs it at 15 hours, 57 minutes and 59 seconds.

Determining the day length of rocky bodies such as Mars or Mercury is easy, because scientists can look at their surfaces, in photos or radar images, and track the motion of easily identifiable features.

But Neptune is made mostly of thick clouds of gas, so it has no visible surface. The only visible features are storms, the apparent motion of which results from a mixture of the planet's rotation and shifting weather fronts. Until now, the best estimate of the planet's day length came from radio signals measured during a 1989 flyby by the NASA spacecraft Voyager 2. But studies of Saturn have since indicated that such signals are not as clearly tied to the planet's rotation as was once thought.

Karkoschka went back to basics. Poring over archived images from the Hubble Space Telescope, he found that Neptune has two cloud disturbances, dubbed the South Polar Feature and the South Polar Wave, that seem to be linked to surface features deep beneath the clouds, probably a hot spot on the planet's solid core.

The best analogue is clouds moving over a mountain, says Karkoschka. Each cloud moves, so if you track them you don't get the rotation. But the feature as a whole remains stable.

By painstakingly plotting the positions of the two features in 500 images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope over the course of two decades, Karkoschka was able to pin down the planet's day length to an accuracy of 0.0002 of an hour. To put this into perspective, even with the Cassini probe in orbit around Saturn, the planet's day length is known only with an order of magnitude less certainty, he says.

The Enigma Of The Missing Planet

The enigma of the missing planet: a mysterious numerical sequence aka Titius bode law.
Our solar system has always been an intriguing topic for humanity, probably because we consider it as our home, our little place in the scaring immensity of the entire universe.
This is probably why during the Eighteenth century the existence of a strange series of numbers which seemed to predict the positions of our “neighbours planets” totally shocked the scientific community giving birth to hundreds of different research works. And it doesn’t end here: these numbers also known as the Titius Bode Law suggested the presence of a missing planet near us, a bit far away from Mars.
But wait a moment, what are we talking about? What is this numerical sequence?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Business Enquiries: Lorenzovareseaziendale@gmail.com
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In order to answer all these questions we need to take a little step back moving directly in the 18th century. At that time, scientists had only discovered five planets (different from our earth) in the solar system: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
At the same time, mathematicians were totally driven crazy by a strange sequence of numbers: 0,4-0,7-1-1,6-2,8-5,2-10-19,6.
Apparently, it seems that there isn’t a logic correlation between these numbers. However, we can make some little changes to discover something very very interesting. Try to multiply the previous sequence for 10. We have: 4, 7, 10, 16, 28, 52, 100, 196. Now, let’s subtract 4. We obtain 0, 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, 96,192.
Something can be surely said about this new sequence. Have you noticed it? Except for the first two numbers, which seem to be randomly chosen, all the other numbers are just twice the previous one.
This tricky sequence was studied by Johan Bode in 1772. Therefore, he wasn’t the first one to deal with it. As a matter of fact, the same sequence was introduced by Johan Titius in 1776. Consequently, these numbers are always mentioned as “the Titius-Bode Law”. Even if it takes the name after these two scientists, the sequence was firstly discovered at the beginning of the century by the Scottish mathematician David Grigory and re-elaborated around the 20’s by the Polish philosopher Christian Wolff.
Wait a moment, we have understood how the Titius-Bode law originated, but what does it state? What is it about? How is it linked to the possibility of a missing planet?
Let’s try to understand it step by step. Firstly, we must examine the original reasoning of the scientists. Here are three different pieces that introduce the connection of the sequence with planetary research.
The first is taken by David Gregory’s “The elements of astronomy” of 1915:
... supposing the distance of the Earth from the Sun to be divided into ten equal Parts, of these the distance of Mercury will be about four, of Venus seven, of Mars fifteen, of Jupiter fifty two, and that of Saturn ninety five.
This second one comes from Johan Titius:
“take notice of the distances of the planets from one another and recognize that almost all are separated from one another in a proportion which matches their bod*ly magnitudes. Divide the distance from the Sun to Saturn into 100 parts; then Mercury is separated by four such parts from the Sun, Venus by 4+3=7 such parts, the Earth by 4+6=10, Mars by 4+12=16. But notice that from Mars to Jupiter there comes a deviation from this so exact progression. From Mars there follows a space of 4+24=28 such parts, but so far no planet was sighted there. But should the Lord Architect have left that space empty? Not at all. Let us therefore assume that this space without doubt belongs to the still undiscovered satellites of Mars, let us also add that perhaps Jupiter still has around itself some smaller ones which have not been sighted yet by any telescope. Next to this for us still unexplored space there rises Jupiter's sphere of influence at 4+48=52 parts; and that of Saturn at 4+96=100 parts.”

Approximately 4.5 billion years ago, gravity pulled a cloud of gas and dust together to form the solar system. A huge concentration of this interstellar gas and dust developed a molecular cloud that would eventually form our sun. But what caused gravity to conspire and pull a massive interstellar cloud into a star? Are there 8 or 9 planets in our solar system? or are there even more?...Stay tuned to find out!

The Sun's gravitational bound system and the objects that orbit it, either directly or indirectly, make up the solar system. Scientists believe that the shockwave of a nearby star going supernova, is what triggered a series of chain events that compressed a massive interstellar cloud of gas and dust that forged our solar system. Mass-vise, the Sun consists of 99% of the entire solar system. The remaining 1% is what makes up the planets, asteroids, comets and other cosmic debris.

Our first stop is on the closest planet to the Sun, which is also the smallest planet in the solar system. Mercury. It is named after the Roman deity Mercury, the messenger of the gods. It's message? Ice & Fire.

Because it's length of day is about 59 Earth days, and it doesn't have an atmosphere to trap heat, Mercury has the most extreme variant temperatures of the planets. At night, the temperature drops to a stunning -173 degrees Celsius. You would freeze to death in seconds. While at day, the sun heats up the surface and the temperature rises up to 427 degrees Celsius. Which is hot enough to melt lead. Although Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, there is another planet that outstrips it for being the hottest planet in the solar system.

Meet the Roman goddess of love and beauty, Venus. She is so beautiful and hot that the surface temperature reaches up to 462 degrees Celsius. You could cook a pizza in only 7 seconds. This is because of it's thick and dense atmosphere trapping the Sun's heat. Venus is chocking on CO2. It is global warming on steroids. That's why the next planet is or should be everyone's favorite...Earth.

At the beginning of the formation of the solar system, Earth was even worse than her sister planet Venus. A planet called Thea, collided with Earth. The debris from that collision went into Earth's orbit and eventually formed our Moon. As time went by, Earth began to cool down and the conditions for life started to emerge. Earth is about 150 million kilometers away from the sun. A distance known as an astronomical unit. Contrary to popular belief, Earth is actually farther away from the Sun during the northern hemisphere summer. Earth's seasons are caused by it's tilt on it's axis of 23.5 degrees, which enables more sunlight to travel through an area during Aphelion in the northern hemisphere and less sunlight in the southern hemisphere.

The next and last rocky planet is Mars. Due to it's reddish appearance in the sky viewed from Earth, it is known as the red planet. Named after the roman god of war, Mars is red because of it's iron oxide prevalent on its surface. Mars is one of the most explored bodies in our solar system, and it's the only planet where we've sent rovers to roam the alien landscape. Mariner 9 Mars orbiter of 1971 discovered a system of canyons that runs along the Martian surface east of the Tharsis region. At more than 4,000 km long, 200 km wide and up to 7 km deep. Also, the largest volcano in the solar system is located on Mars. Olympus Mons is about two and a half times Mount Everest's height above sea level. It was once considered to be the largest mountain in the solar system...It no longer is.

Between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter lies the asteroid belt. Home to 1.9 million asteroids. One of the largest ones is 4 Vesta. Rhea Silvia is the most prominent surface feature on the asteroid Vesta and is thought to be an impact crater. The peak in the center of the crater rises 22.5 km from its base, making it the tallest mountain known in the Solar System.

The edge of the asteroid belt marks the end of Part 1 of our journey to explore the solar system. Subscribe and ring the bell for next week's exploration of the gas giants in the solar system.
