The Regions are:
 Asteroid Belt
 Oort Cloud
 Planetary Rings
 Scattered Disc
 Ecliptic Plane
 Interstellar Wind
 Heliosphere
Is composed of 200 objects that is over 100km
(60 miles).
It lies between Mars and Jupiter
Asteroids are rich in minerals, the estimated
wealth of the asteroid belt is 100 billion dollars
for every person on Earth today
The average surface temperature of an asteroid
is -73C (-100F)
Is the closest to the sun
Objects in the Oort cloud are largely composed
of ices, such as water, ammonia, and methane.
Astronomers conjecture that the matter
composing the Oort cloud formed closer to the
Sun and was scattered far into space by the
gravitational effects.
The most notable planetary rings in the Solar
System are those around Saturn
but the other three gas giants (Jupiter, Uranus,
and Neptune) also possess ring systems
On 26 March 2014 was announced the
discovery of rings around the minor planet
Chariklo during the observation of a stellar
occultation on 3 June 2013.
The scattered disc (or scattered disk) is a
distant region of the Solar System that is
sparsely populated by icy minor planets, a
subset of the broader family of transNeptunian objects.
These extreme orbits are believed to be the
result of gravitational "scattering" by the gas
giants, and the objects continue to be subject to
perturbation by the planet Neptune.
The ecliptic is the apparent path of the Sun on
the celestial sphere, and is the basis for the
ecliptic coordinate system.
It also refers to the plane of this path, which is
coplanar with both the orbit of the Earth
around the Sun and the apparent orbit of the
Sun around the Earth.
In astronomy, the interstellar medium (or ISM)
is the matter that exists in the space between
the star systems in a galaxy.
This matter includes gas in ionic, atomic, and
molecular form, dust, and cosmic rays.
It fills interstellar space and blends smoothly
into the surrounding intergalactic space.
The energy that occupies the same volume, in
the form of electromagnetic radiation, is the
interstellar radiation field.
The heliosphere is a vast region of space
surrounding the Sun, a sort of bubble filled by
the interplanetary medium and extending well
beyond the orbit of Pluto.
Plasma "blown" out from the Sun, known as
the solar wind, creates and maintains this
bubble against the outside pressure of the
interstellar medium, the hydrogen and helium
gas that permeates our galaxy.
