Planet Neptune

Parent Category: The Solar System
Neptune, the 8th planet from the Sun and nearly a twin of planet Uranus, is the fourth-largest planet by diameter and the furthest planet discovered so far in our solar system. Planet Neptune gets its name after the Roman god of the sea. It is a gas giant.
Neptune has six rings, but they are really hard to see.
Neptune's and Earth's orbits place them at different distances at different times. The approximate minimum distance between the two is about 4.3 billion kilometers, and the approximate maximum distance between the two is about 4.7 billion kilometers.
Triton, proteus, Nereid, Larissa, and Galatea, according todiameter
Mankind has not yet gone to Neptune nor a satellite. There are onlysatellites around the Earth, Moon, Venus, Mars, We have sent anunmanned probe to Neptune (Voyager 2), but it did not go intoorbit. It just flew by and took some pictures.It would have takenfar too much energy to slow the probe down...
It orbits the Sun all the time! You probably meant : "What time does Neptune take to complete one orbit around the Sun?" The answer to that is: about 165 Earth years.
Freezing to death, being crushed by the pressure, being torn apartby the wind.
Earth is small compared to Neptune
Neptune takes 164.79 years to make one traversal around the Sun.The average distance from the Sun to Neptune is about 30.1 AU.
Neptune is actually in the constellation Aquaruis.
Its not. It's about 10% greater. Neptune is less dense than Earth, but its still more massive.
Jupiter and Neptune are father away from the sun than Earth.
Neptune's rings are incomplete because they have less material thanSaturn.
Neptune was named after the Roman God of Sea.
The current Dark Spot on Neptune is located in the Northern Hemisphere of Neptune. The Great Dark Spot and the Small Dark Spot have disappeared. Dark Spots on Neptune are constantly disappearing and forming. Former Dark Spots can still exist as cyclones and look like a cloud but will have lost its...
Triton is the largest moon on Neptune. It was found by WilliamLassel in 1846.
It has never been explored by humans and never will.
About 64.4 lbs. Mar's gravity is about 12.2 ft/s^2 (or 3.71 m/s^2) and earth's gravity is about 32.2 ft / s^2 (or 9.83 m / s^2). Using this ratio you can calculate your weight. Weight on mars = (12.2 / 32.2) * Weight on Earth
No, they did not assist each other, rather, they each discovered itseparately around the same time.
Here are the rings and their names including the arcs: Ring Name: 1989 N3R Galle Distance*: 41,900 km Width: 15 km Ring Name: 1989 N2R Leverrier Distance*: 53,200 km Width: 15 km Ring Name: Lassell Distance*: 55,400 km Ring Name: Arago Distance*: 57,600 Ring Name: 1989 N1R...
Naiad . Thalassa . Despina . Galatea . Larisaa . Proteus . Triton . Nereid . Halimede . Sao . Laomedeia . Psamathe . Neso These are the names of the 13 moons orbiting Neptune. Pandora isn't one of them.
because its the furthest away and therefore has a further distance to cover
There is no land of Neptune.
The mean atmospheric temperature on Neptune is as low as −218 °C (55.1 K) at the cloud tops and about -200 °C (72 K) at the pressure level equal to 1 Earth atmosphere. The lowest observed temperature within the atmosphere is about -221°C (51.8 K).Probably something like -210 degrees...
They would freeze to death.
Light can travel from Earth to Neptune in 4 hours and 2 minutes.The light would have traveled over 2 billion miles to reach theplanet Neptune.
The Great Dark Spot, hurricanes, and swirling clouds.
No. Voyager 2 visited Neptune in 1989. Neptune was discovered in1846 but its existence was inferred earlier based on how itsgravity slightly perturbed the orbit of Uranus.
No , voyager 2 was an unmanned probe.
Voyager 1 never visited Neptune. Voyager 2 has. Voyager 2 is currently the only scientific instrument to do a fly-by of Neptune.
The gravitational pull between them causes Pluto to come near neptune. Did you know that when Pluto goes to go around the sun, it goes through Neptunes system. (Neptune has rings)
No, no person has even been to Neptune
The distance from the Sun to the Earth is defined as being ONE AU or "Astronomical Unit".
Neptune is not the furthest away from the sun it is Pluto [dwarf planet] Neptune is the 2nd furthest from the sun
Neptune's gravity is about 11.15 m/s2. If you weigh 150 pounds onEarth, on Neptune, you would weigh around 169 pounds on Neptune.
That's because Pluto is usually further from the Sun than Neptune is. Incidentally, Pluto is defined as only a dwarf planet now.
Neptune is the eight and fastest planet from the sun.
what exactly do you mean by good crater?? Neptune would not have any craters on the outer surface because it is a gas planet, the core maybe might have craters but i could not say for sure
well none of them take 165 years. but the closest would be Neptune that takes 164.79 Earth years to orbit the sun.
Neptune is the eighth planet from the Sun and the fourth largest (by diameter). Neptune's orbit: 4,504,000,000 km (30.06 AU) from Sun. That's the average distance from the Sun (not "diameter" from the Sun). Neptune's diameter: 49,532 km (equatorial) Neptune's mass: 1.0247 X 10 ^26 kg (larger in...
space probes have crossed Pluto's orbit, but never have visited the planet because Pluto was not in alignment with the flight path of the space probes.
It's to cold so no one has visited Neptune. It's to far from the sun. No human being has ever visited ANY planet not event Mars. The timetaken for the journey would be so high that we do not have thepresent technology to support it (even a journey to Mars would takeabout 7 months which is too much...
Neptune has a total of 13 known satelites, or moons. In astronomy the word satellite means a celestial body orbiting a planet . Earth has 1 satellite
I could try and remember all this from high school... or you could just check this link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neptune
no.its the only planet you cant see with your naked eye from earth.
Day: -225 degrees Celsius Night: -223 degrees Celsius -382 Celsius degrees in the morning and-230 degrees Celsius
Neptune is known for intense storms and the most erratic climate inthe Solar System. It is extremely dark and very cold, with averagetemperatures of negative 353 degrees Fahrenheit and negative 214degrees Celsius.
Your question is not as hypothetical as you may think. Sunlight DOES travel at the speed of 300,000 km per second. At that speed, once the light leaves the surface of the sun, it takes about 4 hours 20 minutes for it to reach Neptune.
Neptune takes about 165 Earth years to orbit the Sun. That's one Neptune "year" of course. Neptune's "day" is about 16 hours and 6 minutes ( 16.1 hours). That's the time it takes to spin on its axis once. From that you can work out how many Neptune days the orbit takes, if you want. I make it...
Planet Neptune has a surface area of 2.941 billion sq miles (7.618 billion km²).
Neptune, like the other gas giants, has no definitive surface.Instead it is comprised of gaseous ice and water layers. In fact,the planets mantle is a water-ammonia ocean, which at deep levels,the methane transforms into diamond crystals. The atmosphere is icyand comprised mostly of helium and...
The surface area of Neptune is 7.64 x 10 9 km 2, but it is not solid.
No so far people can only live on earth right now.
Neptune's biggest moon Triton was discovered by William Lassell
ANSWER: . Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars are inner planets. The rest are outer. See the related link for more information.
None of the users gave a reliable answer. Please research. But as far as I know, there is no new missions to Neptune?
Neptune is a gas planet, thus it has no solid surface (that we've seen yet), thus no canals.
Not the size of the mass, It's the Miles in the orbit!
yes because study says that neptune realeses 2.7 of the suns energy it absorbs
The planet Neptune has a surface area of 2.941 billion squaremiles. For a comparison, the surface area of Earth is 196.9 millionsquare miles.
No it is to far away to the sun so it was to cold.
Answer . It is my understanding that dark red spotting at any point in any pregnancy should be taken seriously. Contact your physician immediately.
If I remember correctly, they shoot as high as 5 miles.
I don't know! Go ask somebody else!
It is relatively constant at 72K
The methane gas makes it blue.
Neptune has a lot more days than the Earth. The Earth has 365 days when Neptune has 60,225 days in a year. The days are 16 hours, 6 minutes and 36 seconds.
pue no se mi me importa
Neptune and Uranus are often called gas giants, but their composition may actually be closer to ice. They are sometimes called ice giants. but mostly neptune is none for being big and not warm like saturn, it is vary cold like uranus under 200 below thats alot compared to us its because its the...
The methane gas makes it blue, but other gases that swarm the atmosphere make it purple.
thirty astronimical units
Yes, a pressurized and heated spacesuit or spacecraft would be required in the cold regions of the outer solar system. You could not actually walk on Neptune because the solid surface is deep under a superheated slush of water and ammonia. But you could walk on any of its icy moons.
The name of Neptune's horse is Hippocampos. But the part of the brain you are thinking of must be the hypothalimous.
Yes it is, 3.8 times wider in radii, 15 vast in area, its mass is 17 times, volume 58 times of earth.
165 Earth years.
Because it is further away from the sun so the distance neptune has to travel to rotate around the sun is far greater than the distance earth or other planets travel. An example would be running your finger around the edge of a quarter, now do the same to a dinner plate.
