Sol
The Sun or Sol is in our solar system,and it is in the centre. The closest planet to the sun is Mercury. Do you think it is the hottest? Well it’s not just because Mars is far away does not mean that Mercury is the hottest that is right Mars is the hottest planet. That is why the U.S president is gonna launch real people to Mars in the year 2020.

Produces
The sun’s heat could protently give us heat and light but just stop right there because the sun gives us our vegetables and our solar energy. The sun’s heat will take 8 minutes to travel to the earth and can possibly take forever.

Inner Core
If you just did not know that the hottest bit of the sun is it is the Inner core because when I five I thought the heat came from Mars, but it came from itself.

Sol & Gravity
If you do not know what Sol means it is another word for the sun. Gravity is when you cannot float and when your in space you can float because there is no gravity holding them down.

Solar Energy
The energy Gives us our apples and fruits from our trees. And provides us our veggies to eat. It also gives us sun burns but people still do not care what so ever.

Conclusion
The sun is a yellow Humounges dwarf star where people should not go because it will burn and it is not where you should go on Vacation.


NASA


The reason why the astronauts are chosen because the chief of NASA chooses the 4 that get to go. But they also would pretty much die from the dust storms and other elements in mars.

The Sun!

What is the sun?
The sun is a star that is part of our solar system. The sun sits at the centre of the solar system, it is orbited by 8 planets which rotate at the same time. The sun is the biggest part of our solar system, but it’s small compared to other suns in other systems. The sun does not move because it’s a star.


What is the sun made of?
The sun is made of energy. The sun produces energy, called solar energy which can be used to power homes on Earth. The core is the hottest part of the sun, it is 27 million degrees F*/15 million degrees C*. It’s made of Hydrogen gas which is sometimes known as Hg.


What does the sun do?

When you try to travel to the sun you could get burnt but when you see the sun you might just seek total darkness when your around 20 to 15 ft away. On the earth you might be hot that is because every 8 minutes is maybe 1.5 degrees or 8 celsius. The sun gives the earth light and warmth. Sometimes we complain and do not like the sun but the sun produces energy for us.  The egyptians worshiped the sun like their leader.

Crossing the bridge


On Saturday the 16th of March 1852, there was a farmer and her brown and white cow. The farmer’s name was called peaches.

First the farmer got her cow and tried to get the cow to move “ come on bessie.” she said as she struggled to pull bessie. Peaches grabbed her coins and she went to William Johnsen the toll keeper. She gave William Johnson 1 coin for her and 1 for her cow.

Evening Johnson” she said as she was waiting to cross the bridge.
                                                                                                                   
William Johnson took the money and said “thank you very much,enjoy your day.” William Johnson used his strength to turn the winch so that the farmer could go through the bridge and go to the market. The farmer and the cow got to the market and the farmer got the bucket and milked the cow to sell the milk to the villagers.

The farmer looked and looked to see if anyone was coming to get some milk. But then she saw one person in line to see if it tasted nice. So she gave the nice lady some milk and she said “ WOOPHE!!!, that's the best milk i've ever tasted.” So she bought some milk and took it to her kids and they shared the milk together. After she left she told everyone about the milk and there was a whole line of people waiting to get some milk. Then he got to the last person and there was no one else in the line. So she packed up all her stuff and took her cow home. Then they got home and they jumped straight on to their beds and went to sleep.
