An unusual chronicle about planets and octopuses.
Now that Pluto has lost its status as a planet, there are eight planets in our solar system. But let`s not forget that, in fact, there are many more in the universe.
Texte informatif :
On dit souvent qu'il y a huit
planètes. Mais en fait, il
y en a pas mal plus que huit. On
retrouve huit planètes dans
notre système solaire, ce
qui veut dire qu'il y a huit
planètes qui orbitent autour
de notre étoile centrale,
le Soleil. La Terre est la
troisième planète du système
solaire. Et oui, c'est vrai que
Pluton n'est plus une planète.
Mais en plus de ces huit
planètes, il existe plusieurs
autres planètes dans l'univers
autour de nous. En fait,
il existe un nombre quasi infini
d'étoiles dans l'univers. Il est
très probable qu'un bon nombre
d'entre elles soit entouré de
planètes comme l'est notre
Soleil. Jusqu'à date, les
astronomes ont trouvé 1854
planètes à l'extérieur de notre
système solaire. Puis, comme
elles se trouvent à l'extérieur
du système solaire, on les nomme
exoplanètes. Les exoplanètes
sont importantes pour la
compréhension de l'univers et de
la vie. La Terre est le seul
endroit où on retrouve la vie...
à ce qu'on sache. Alors il
est logique qu'on se tourne vers
d'autres planètes pour voir si
on y retrouve la vie. à date, on
n'a pas trouvé de signe de vie
sur ces exoplanètes, mais on a
trouvé certaines planètes qui
ressemblent un peu à la Terre,
alors les chances sont bonnes.
Les pieuvres sont des animaux
marins super intéressants.
Les pieuvres sont agiles,
intelligentes et super bonnes à
se camoufler. Saviez-vous que
les pieuvres ont plusieurs
neurones dans leurs bras? Ceci
veut dire qu'elles ont comme
un genre de mini cerveau dans
chaque bras. Il est bien connu
que les pieuvres ont huit
bras. Mais ce qui est moins bien
connu, c'est que chaque bras est
indépendant. Même si un bras de
pieuvre est détaché du corps, le
bras continuera à essayer de
trouver de la nourriture et à la
rapporter à une bouche non
existante. En plus, leurs bras
sont recouverts de ventouses
qui permettent aux pieuvres
d'attraper leurs proies, et
ça les aide aussi à se déplacer.
Dans le fond, les pieuvres
peuvent être effrayantes, mais
ce sont d'anciennes espèces
qui ont évolué des
bras super utiles.
