The solar system
The Solar System consists of the Sun with planets in orbit around it. Most planets have at least one satellite in orbit around them. Gravity provides the force needed to keep objects in orbit.
We can explore space using manned or unmanned spacecraft.

The solar system consists of...
1. a star (the Sun)
2. planets and dwarf planets in orbit around the Sun
3. satellites (moons) in orbit around most of the planets
4. comets and asteroids in orbit around the Sun.
Smaller ones?
There are many other smaller objects that orbit the Sun. Three of these are Ceres, Pluto and Eris, known as 'the dwarf planets'. Ceres orbits between Mars and Jupiter. Pluto orbits further away from the Sun than Neptune, while Eris orbits further out still.
The planets
Stars are very hot and give off their own light, which is why we can see the Sun during the day, and the stars in the night sky. A galaxy is large group of many millions of stars.
Our Sun is just one of at least 200 billion stars in our galaxy, the Milky Way. The observable universe contains around 80 billion galaxies. The universe also contains other objects, such as black holes.
