Dear President Mullins,

Hello, this is Team Comparison from the South Paris Collaborative.We have some information about the similarities and differences between Earth and Artrix.The scientists helped us with this information.

First we are going to talk about the differences between Earth and Artrix. Artrix is not in our solar system. Artrix is a few solar systems away. However earth is in our solar system. There is also no people on Artrix. And those are the differences between Earth and Artrix.

Next we will talk about the similarities between Eath and Artrix.Some similarities are that Artrix has a strong enough sun to make solar powered cars just like us. According to our scientists Artrix has a powerful sun that can be used for solar powered cars and other types of transportation. Artrix has meat,vegetables and Earth can grow crops and fruits too.Sometimes the weather can affect the land depending on the season. In the winter the ground is frozen so you can't grow very much. Both Artrix and Earth are 197 million square miles. Those are the similarities between Earth and Artrix.

Hopefully this information will be useful to you and help us live on Artrix.

On Earth we eat food to live, but a lot of people eat fast food. Some of the things people on Earth eat include: sandwiches, pizza, hotdogs, spaghetti and meatballs, and Chinese Food.

On Artrix, they will have to transport pigs, cows, horses sheep and chicken. They need to do this because they have no animals there. They are going to raise the animals so they mate and have babies. They are going to eat some of the animals, but others they will save for milk or for eating later.

On Artrix they will also grow fruits and vegetables. Squash, tomatoes and corn are some of the crops they will grow.

Dear President Mullins,

As you know earth scientists have discovered an asteroid that is coming to Earth and the scientists discovered we have to go to a new planet called Planet Artrix before the asteroid hits our planet. We are the DreamExtreme Compare And Contrast Group and our job is to compare Earth and Artrix so that people will know if it is easy to live on Artrix and know what it's like there. Our comparison will also help people know what they will need to do when they get to Artrix.

Earth and Artrix have some of the same things. Artrix air is very similar to Earth. It is 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% other gases. That means we will be able to breathe there without having to wear air tanks or anything.
Both planets have fresh water in streams, rivers, lakes that can be used to drink and salt water in the oceans. Artrix's gravity is almost the same as Earth but it is 5% less because the planet is a little smaller than Earth.
Artrix has the many of the same natural resources as Earth. Artrix has trees that are strong enough to make the wood for a house and other supplies. It also has soil to grow crops. Artrix has enough solar energy to support the entire population. The highest elevation on Artrix is 11,239 feet. The average elevation is 3,269 feet. That is about the same as where we live now in Oregon.

Artrix has plants, fruit and animals like on Earth. On Artrix we will have some of the same animals on Earth such as deer, elk, antelope, big horned sheep, mountain goats, coyotes, wolves, foxes, cougars, bear, beaver, muskrats, skunks, badgers, squirrels and more. We will also have many of the same foods like strawberries, blueberries, corn, wheat, apples, pears, and cherries. That means we will have food we like that we can eat.

Some things we will have to get use to is the rumor about skigers, and the 2 moons. Other things that are different are Artrix is smaller and different colors than earth. There is 34% land on Artrix and 76% of Artrix is water which is like earth but on Artrix you are 5% lighter than on earth because the planet is smaller and has less gravity.

Our team thinks that there will be some new things we have to learn about on Artrix but it will be mostly the same. People from earth will not have a hard time getting used to living on Artrix because it is so similar.
