Nigel’s Fruit Assisted Tour of the Solar System
Future Virgin Galactic Astronaut Nigel Henbest uses the fruit in his kitchen to compare the eight planets in our solar system.
Nigel looks at some of the differences between the four inner terrestrial planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, and the four giant outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. He discusses the contrasting structure and composition within the planetary system, and uses a vase of water to demonstrate the dramatic density difference between the massive gas giants. Pluto’s demotion to dwarf planet status gets a mention, and of course the Sun, the star of our solar system.
Nigel is an internationally acclaimed science populariser and author, specialising in astronomy and space.
