The Inner Planets
The Outer

The Sun
The sun has an age of
4.6 Billion Years
The sun has a mass of
1,989,100,000,000,000,000,000 kg
If a hollow Sun was filled up with spherical Earths then around 960,000 would fit inside
The Sun

As the iron core of the planet cooled and contracted,
the surface of the planet became wrinkled
One of five planets visible with the naked eye a, Mercury is just 4,879 Kilometers across its
equator, compared with 12,742 Kilometers for the Earth
One day on Mercury lasts the equivalent of 176 Earth days
It takes 243 Earth days to rotate once on its axis
Venus rotates counter-clockwise
While its size and mass are similar to Earth, the small asteroids are crushed when entering its atmosphere, meaning no small craters lie on the surface of the planet

Due to the apparent movements of the Sun and planets in relation to their viewpoint, ancient scientists insisted that the Earth remained static, whilst other celestial bodies traveled in circular orbits around it
This deceleration is happening almost imperceptibly,
at approximately 17 milliseconds per hundred years, although the rate at which it occurs is not perfectly uniform
The earth has a mass
of 5,972,190,000,000,000
Even though Mars has only has 15% of the Earth’s volume and just over 10% of the Earth’s mass, around two thirds of the Earth’s surface is covered in water
Mars has
a mass of 641,693,000,000,000
As of September 2014 there
have been 40 missions to Mars, including orbiters, lander and rovers but not counting flybys

Jupiter has 67 moons
It turns on its axis once every 9 hours and 55 minutes
Jupiter is named after the king of the Roman gods
Saturn has 30 moons
It is named for the Roman god Saturnus, and was known to the Greeks as Cronus
Its slow movement against the backdrop of stars earned it the nickname of “Lubadsagush” from the ancient Assyrians
The ring particles are small, ranging from a dust-sized particles to small boulders
With minimum atmospheric temperature of -224°C Uranus is the coldest planet in the solar system
The name comes from the ancient Greek deity Ouranos
It is not visible to the naked eye and was first observed in 1846
During some parts of its orbit one or the other of its poles point directly at the Sun and get about 42 years of direct sunlight
Despite being smaller than Uranus, Neptune has a greater mass
For the 76 years between Pluto being discovered and the time it was reclassified as a dwarf planet it completed under a third of its orbit around the Sun
Pluto has a mass of 13,050,000,000,000 billion kg
