Description

This interactive powerpoint uses hyperlinks to create a quiz. This allows you to input information about a planet by answering the three questions, and then have one of 27 custom planets be selected for you. Originally made for a science project/report

Title Page

STARTWhat size will your planet be? • Size class will determine the size of the planet, thereby outlining the types of life that can possible grow there. The bigger the planet, the more gravity, and the harder it is for life to grow tall, meaning a planet of short, thick life resembling hippos or elephants or slugs. Whereas a small planet would have tall, thin life forms like giraffes or mosquitoes Gravity also determines atmosphere density. A large planet will be able to hold on to a thicker atmosphere, while on a small planet the air will be thin. Thicker atmosphere also generally means more flying creatures, as it is easy for wings to grab onto a dense atmosphere. • A (Mars sized) • B (Earth sized) • C (About twice the size of the Earth)

AHow far from its sun will your planet be? • Distance from the planet’s sun will determine the temperature of the planet, which determines several aspects of the life inhabiting it, including how they find water, as the temperature will determine the abundance of liquid water. A colder planet, farther from its sun, will have beings that use mainly ice as their source of liquid water, most likely adapting a way to melt it. On hotter planets, water will be scarce, and life will have adapted to either suck it out of the air or not require very much. • A 67,240,000 miles (Venus Distance From Sun(DFS)) • B 92,960,000 miles (Earth DFS) • C 141,600,000 miles (Mars DFS)

AWhat is your planet’s orbit like? • A planet’s orbit determines environmental stability. A planet with a stable orbit will have constant seasons, days, and weather. Because weather is caused by temperature difference, a planet with a constant non-erratic orbit will have zones that don’t change temperature, meaning steady winds. A tidally locked world will have a constant weather system, with winds always going in one direction depending on where you are. • A Tidally locked world(One side constantly facing sun) • B Stable earth-like orbit with earth like weather, seasons, and years • C Erratic unpredictable orbit with crazed weather and unpredictable climate change,

Clorianth • Clorianth is a small planet, about the size of mars, with low gravity. Being tidally locked, one side is superheated, constantly facing the sun with the other side incredibly cold, facing away. It is impossible for life to arise on either of these, as liquid water cannot exist. However, in between the two sides, in a ring going around the vertical circumference of the planet, is a small swamp zone, with a abundance of liquid water, the perfect temperature for life. • Habiting this planet are large, tall life forms. The long-legged Mizzaks jump through the air from water source to water source, feeding on the trees from behind. On the sun-side of the zone is a huge forest of ClurTrees, large fanlike trees that lean over to one side to take in the sunlight. Behind their fans they grow furzik, an orange fruit that the Mizzaks love. In the huge mountains to the east of the planet, there live Cruzas, the principal predator of the planet. They glide leap and glide through the air, jumping down on unsuspecting Blozax, who are the equivalent of cows on that planet. • However, the environment isn’t hostile enough for fast evolution. The planet will most likely stay this way for another several million years, adaptation stagnant at best because there is nothing new to adapt to. • Try quiz again

Haraxus • This planet is very similar to earth. It has an earth like orbit, is the same distance from the sun as the earth, and is even roughly the same size. Covered with green plants and large, complex life, this planet is perfect for life to exist. It is the perfect size, the perfect distance, the only thing wrong is the orbit. Because of the inherent stability of the orbit, the conditions are stable. This means that life is put on easy mode, so to speak. Evolution isn’t as abundant as a crazed erratic planet with a mad orbit. It is, slow. So, of course, the life there isn’t as advanced as it could be. However, it is home to a diverse ecosystem, with 6 different categorizations of life falling under two major groups. The first, the trivertibrates , have three full backbones. This group has two subgroups, the Carvids, with spikey protrusions used to sense their surroundings, and the Murids, with two long spikes instead of the body covering. The Bivertibrates, on the other hand, have two backbones, granting a wide range of vertical movement, but not much horizontal.

BHow far from its sun will your planet be? • Distance from the planet’s sun will determine the temperature of the planet, which determines several aspects of the life inhabiting it, including how they find water, as the temperature will determine the abundance of liquid water. A colder planet, farther from its sun, will have beings that use mainly ice as their source of liquid water, most likely adapting a way to melt it.
