Hey, I am new to solar system, and I am wondering if anybody has any leads on were to get my information... Specific sources and stuff. The best I have been finding is sources from NASA.

I've used "Astronomy Today" as an undergrad textbook. It is really useful for getting a baseline, but make sure you pick the "Solar System" one! NASA is also a good resource too; for math you should look for YouTube videos for each individual calculation.

Thanks everybody for the info... I also have another question, I was reading the solar system paper that describes all the different things you need to learn and I saw that said something like hands on activities... What does that mean!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

As it relates to Solar System, I'd say it's just being used as a fancier term for application-based questions. There should be a section in the rules about them.

An example would be labeling the parts of an eclipse, or labeling the lunar maria. It isn't really "hands one" per se, but like Unome said, you apply what you've learned from the knowledge part.

What are kiplers laws of planetary mosen and where can I find the info?

During a solar eclipse can the moon be different colors other than red?

How many dorfe planets in our solar stum have names?

No it is always going to be red

search Kepler's laws

look up space.com and you will find what you need

All of them And you spelled dwarf wrong

Kepler’s three laws of planetary motion can be stated as follows: (1) All planets move about the Sun in elliptical orbits, having the Sun as one of the foci. (2) A radius vector joining any planet to the Sun sweeps out equal areas in equal lengths of time. (3) The squares of the sidereal periods (of revolution) of the planets are directly proportional to the cubes of their mean distances from the Sun.

I do recommend looking further on online resources, or even books of some sort, as I don't actually study the Solar System myself.

Hi All,

I am very new to Science Olympiad. At first I assumed from the name "Solar System" that the whole solar system needs to be studied. But as I read more about it, doesn't look like the case. So, can anyone confirm that the focus this year are the moons and other rocky bodies only? Also, by other rocky bodies they mean only the dwarf plantes, and other specific small bodies listed in the rulebook?

Thanks

Yes, the rules manual should be your primary source for figuring out what the event is about. You should only be responsible for the bodies listed under 3.b.

How Much Might we want to know about Trojan asteroids and the other asteroids in the Asteroid Belt? :?

Definitely look for all the major asteroids first, and put a good deal of information about it compared to the more minor asteroids. Dedicate a modest amount at least, but don't go over the top.
