    Dear 3/4M,
    I learnt from the video that the words for the Earth orbiting the Sun and the Earth spinning around while it’s orbiting is called revolution and rotation [ the first meaning for the first word and vice versa]. I would like to learn how is a black-hole [ A destructive result of a dying star, that not even light that can travel at 299792458 metres in a second, can escape it ] generated? How did we get gravity? Does gravity keep the Earth spinning?

    Dear 3/4M,

    this video was really interesting. I learnt that takes a 1 year for the Earth to orbit the Sun and why the Earth spins.it’s because the other side of the Earth will be night forever if the Earth doesn’t spin.

    Dear Miss Murphy,

    I learnt that Earth moves in two different ways: One is called rotating and the other is called revolution.
    How fast can Earth spin?

    dear Miss Murphy,

    the video on our blog kind of helps me learn why the Earth is in a spin.
    i also learnt that Earth causes seasons because of its rotating around the sun.

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    I learnt that when Earth spins in it’s own axis it’s called rotation and when the Earth travels around the sun it’s called revolution.I want to learn are their any planets that we can live in the future? By the way I like the videos.

    revolution.

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    I wonder why revolution makes a year go by and I learnt from that song (don’t tell)revolution (takes a year) and rotation.

    Sincerely from,Hayden

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    That was a cool video, but other than that I think that the sun’s heat or maybe the sun’s Gravity is making the earth spin but if it is the sun’s heat, one day the earth will stop spining because in 5 million years or so the sun’s fuel will burn out.

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    The teachers planned really well last term that’s way everyone is really interested to find out why earth is in a spin. And the video you put on the blog is really good and the topic is good because we get to talk about earth and also talk about other planets as well.

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    I learnt that when the Earth orbits the Sun it causes the seasons. What will happens if there is no Atmosphere?

    Dear 3/4M,
    What is space? Is it an area that some one needs sometimes? Is it that big key on the keyboard? When I’m talking about space I’m talking about a endless amount of area that is always growing, and contains all the stars, planets, rocks, gases and everything else.

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    I learnt that the sun stay in one spot and the planet rotate around the sun and the moons rotate around the planets.Why did nature disaster happen in earth?

    Dear miss Murphy,
    i learnt that revolution takes 365 day and rotation is 24 hours i thought i year (365 days) was just 200 days but its 365 days to make a year go by.
