Today's winner is: Deborah Spadaro, . 9, Syracuse, N, Y. At one time, it was believed that there were only six planets in our . solar system, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. No one though there were any planets beyond Saturn. Now we know there are nine. Why are there just nine? There is no scientific answer to this question. It just happened this way when the solar system was formed. There are two basic theories about how it was formed. One is that first there was a huge neb' ula, or mass of hot gas. As it shrank, it left rings behind. These rings in time condensed into plan els, and the central mass con- desed into our sun, The second theory is that one lime a huge star passed the sun and drew out streamers of mat- ler from it because of gravity. These streamers condensed into our planets. Other variations on these theories are that there was an abtual collision between a passing star and the sun, or that the sun at one time threw off clouds of matter which joined together and became planets. But all we have to go by are theories. We still don't know how the planets were formed and why there just happen to be nine of them. Uranus, the seventh planet, was discovered accidentally in 1781 by an astronomer called William Hersehel. Astronomers ail over the world began to study it and found something peculiar. It was supposed to follow a certain course around the sun according to their calculations — but it didn't. In 1846, an astronomer called keverrler suggested that Uranus was being pulled from the predicted path py a planet still farther away, and he point-; \. ed out where it should be found So a man named Galle in Germ any pointed his telescope to tha spot — and there was the new planet, Neptune! Pluto was discovered in 193' because an astronomer callec Perclval Lowell had figured ou that there must be still anolhe planet having an effect on Uran us..It too was found about wher it had been predicted!
