Hi Andy,
I think we already watched a movie about Jupiter but I learned some more facts. For example, I didn't know that the moon Ganymede was bigger than the planet Mercury. Also, The questions that David wrote are related to Neptune.

Hi Andy,
Here are my answers to the questions:
1) They had to know when they were flying right above the north pole on neptune.
2) If you have enough energy you can slow the wind down. Neptune has such little energy that the winds are really fast.
3) They are not gas giants they are ice giants.
4) The Moon Titan is the same size as Pluto.

Hi,

1. The biggest challenge was to know when they were going to fly over the north pole of Neptune.

2. The winds on Neptune are so fast because if you have enough energy that creates turbulence and that slows the wind down. At Neptune there is so little energy that the wind got started and would just go on and on.

3.Uranus and Neptune are both not gas giants but are ice giants.

4. The moon Titan is the same size as pluto.
It is not called Titan but is called Triton.

Hi Andy,
These are the answers to the questions:
1. They had to know within one second when they were going over the north pole.
2. There is so little energy on Neptune because it is far away from the Sun that the wind started and then goes on and on.
3. Uranus and Neptune are Ice Giants not Gas Giants.
4. It is about the same size as Pluto
