Known as the smallest planet in our solar system and the closest to the Sun , Mercury can be expressed as one of the most unique planets in our solar system. The Universe is estimated to be about 12 light years in distance and continues expanding, with this we have only had men on the moon and robots go to a couple of planets known to humankind. Were pretty puny in comparison to our universe as a whole. But today, I’ll be telling you about one of our familiarly known planets in our solar system, Mercury.
Starting off, why was Mercury named Mercury? The Romans only knew of several objects in the sky at this time, the Sun, the Moon, and the five brightest planets. Mercury was named after the Roman messenger god, as it traveled the fastest in the sky. As said from a page created by Wikipedia on the planet Mercury.

Knowing this, humans living on Mercury is highly unlikely, as there is no atmosphere, meaning no possible air for a human to breath or keep safe, as meteors will collide easily with Mercury. Mercury is also very close to the Sun, making it horridly hot and unbearable for a human, even though Mercury has no atmosphere to keep the planet warm, large waves of heat and radiation hit the planet and cause harm to the human body. Mercury also has no known water or ice, nor does it have any form of a food source to a human. On the bright side (literally) , no atmosphere means no bad weather.
Nobody is known to be credited for the discovery of Mercury, though Timocharis made the first recorded observation of Mercury in 265 BC and does not have an actual discovery date. Mercury also has many notable features that most likely caught Galileo's eye, like it’s similarity to our Earthen moon. Mercury has a variety of craters, ridges and ranged terrain. Mercury can be said as one of the most interesting planets in our solar

Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican “ memorial day” that celebrates the lives of those who have passed. As a beautiful honor to this day, Mr. Garcia’s Spanish class, was given the task of making a little altar for either a family member or celebrity. Shadow boxes were made with pictures and decorations to represent the person; also posters with a background story were created. To show all the beautiful projects and honor each chosen person, a memorial was set up at the library displaying the student’s hard work. Besides our school, our community was ready to celebrate and honor this day as well.

Ganymede is the name of the son of King Tros. 3. Largest moon in the solar system, larger than Mercury but with about half the mass because it is made up primarily of icy water and silicate rock.
The speech was a very informative speech, addressing students with various facts and praises of the foundation of North Carolina Central University. NCCU is in fact praiseworthy. In 1910, James E. Shepard founded NCCU under the unique name, “National Religious Training School and Chautauqua for the Colored Race”. James E. Shepard was a pharmacist and religious educator, whom graduated from Shaw University, and later on in 1895, he married his wife Annie D. Shepard. Mrs. Shepard was the one who wrote the lyrics to North Carolina Central University 's Alma Mater, “Dear Old N.C.C”.

He also found the stars of the Milky Way, of all his telescope discoveries, he is perhaps most known for his discovery of the four most massive moons of Jupiter now called the Galilean moons. Four Hundred Years Ago, Galileo's

Goal for my audience: I want my audience to get to know the impact Pi Beta Phi has made on my life. Introduction “When you’re a Pi Phi, you will find a support system like no other.

Imagine entering your local food store and seeing that items most people eat everyday have been discontinued. Items such as coffee, apples, cucumbers and honey are no longer available to consumers. This may not be possible in our generation, but one day it could very well happen. My name is Matt Shaw from the Millsap FFA, and I am here today to talk to you about a major issue that is facing agriculture, the honeybee population.
William Herschel was the first to notice this odd object and was curious to find out more. This odd object, Uranus, was the first planet in recorded history to be discovered. The discovery of Uranus was just the beginning of William Herschel’s discoveries. He left his work with music and became
Saturn is the second largest planet and sixth number planet of our solar system. Saturn is a gas giant made up of hydrogen and helium. It is big enough to hold more than 760 Earths within it, and is second massive planet after Jupiter, roughly 95 times Earth 's mass. However, Saturn has the lowest density among all the planets of solar system .It spins faster than any other planet except Jupiter which help Saturn with its magnetic field which is about 578 times more powerful than Earth 's. Although Saturn has at least 62 moons but its largest moon, Titan, is slightly bigger than Mercury, and is the second-largest moon in the solar system after Jupiter 's moon Ganymede (our moon is fifth largest).Although it is the most interesting planet
We, as a species have a hard time admitting when we are wrong. How do you live with something that has no cure? Sure, they have medication and counseling that can help subdue the problem for a short time being, but, it’s always there, haunting the corners of your mind. Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD is a somewhat commonly known. People sort of know what it is, but that doesn’t mean that they completely understand what it is.
The discovery of Uranus was a pretty big achievement for the astronomical world. It showed many that there was the possibility of many other planets existing in our solar system past Saturn. There wasn’t really that much thought put into identifying other planets past Saturn since almost everyone did not think that there would be planets out there. This all changed after William Herschel’s discovery in 1781. While it does mark an important achievement for the astronomical world, I do not think that he was really intending on finding a new planet, since it was generally accepted that there were not more for the past 2,000 years.
Hip Hop is seen as something inspiring, but most people see it as a way to speak out the truth about a problem. As in “Hip Hop planet” being able say the truth can sometimes worsen any situation because sometimes what we say can promote violence and whatever happens after is not in our control. The essay is about how hip hop has changed into speaking out the issues that need to be taken care of in order to maintain a proper society. McBride talked about how rappers use violent lyrics to degrade women and gays and because of this it shows how the music has evolved into something entirely different that no one would have ever expected to have changed. In James McBride's essay “Hip Hop Planet,” he argues that hip hop has a negative influence on American Culture despite people thinking of it as inspirational and how people live through different experiences in life despite of your race.
