Planets internal structures

Planets internal structures, and Pluto, computer artwork. Mercury, Mars and Venus consist of a large iron core (spherical), surrounded by a thick silicate mantle (yellow) covered in a surface crust. Earth consists of an inner core of solid iron and nickel (yellow) and a molten outer core (orange), surrounded by a mantle of highly viscous liquid (brown) covered by a surface crust. Jupiter and Saturn consist of a core of rock (spherical) surrounded by ice (mat grey). This is surrounded by a layer of liquid metallic hydrogen (grey) and liquid normal hydrogen (blue). Uranus and Neptune have a core of rock (spherical) surrounded by ice and liquid hydrogen (blue). Pluto has a dense rocky core (grey) surrounded by ice (black)

Immanuel Kant, German philosopher Featured Uranus Print

Immanuel Kant, German philosopher

Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), German philosopher. Kant published various influential philosophical works on the natural sciences, particularly geophysics and astronomy. In 1755, during work on Newtonian cosmology, Kant introduced the nebular theory of solar system origins. He predicted the existence of the planet Uranus before its discovery by Herschel. Another influential theory was his belief in two fundamental forces: gravitational (attractive) and elastic (repulsive). The latter needed a medium through which to act whilst the former did not. Kant also rejected the theory that matter was indivisible. This wood engraving dates from circa 1888

Solar system, 1893 Featured Uranus Print

Solar system, 1893

Solar system. Diagram of the solar system, based on the astronomical knowledge at the end of the 19th century. The Sun is at centre. The orbits of the planets out to Saturn are shown, as well as the asteroid belt (marked insminor planets) between Mars and Jupiter. The orbits of two comets are also shown, as well as the moons and rings of Jupiter and Saturn. The planetary orbits are to scale, though the orbits of the moons are not to scale. Two other planets had been discovered by this time (Uranus and Neptune), but are not shown. Halley's comet was identified as periodic in the 17th century. Faye's comet had been discovered more recently, in 1843. Artwork from Pioneers of Science (Oliver Lodge, 1893)
