The sun and the inner planets are some of the most interesting objects in our solar system! The inner planets include the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth,and Mars.
Definition: any of the planets Mercury,Earth Venus, and Mars whose orbits are within the asteroid belt
Earth is the planet on which we live on and is known as the world
Mercury: the planet that is the closest to the sun.
Sun Facts
Sun- The star that is the central body
of the solar system around which the planets revolve and receive light and heat from.

-Diameter is 4223 miles
-Distance from sun is 141.6 million miles
-Layers/Composition: crust, mantle, and the core
-Atmosphere is made up of carbon dioxide, notrogen, and argon.
-Past Exploration: include Viking 1 was launched by the USA in August 20,1975
-Future Exploration: include Marven from Usa will be launchedin November 2013 and Insight will be launched by USA in March of 2016
-NASA is thinking that Mars used to have water, so that must mean that Mars used to have some kind of life on Mars
-Mars kind of like Earth, has a warm wet ground
-Mars has huge mountains exactly like Earth does
-Like Earth, Mars has seasons
-Mars has deeper valleys than the Grand Canyon!!
-Is the fastest moving planet in our solar system as well as the smallest
- Is one of the terrstrial planets
-It has no moons
-Mercury's atmosphere is constantly being replenished
-Composition and layers: crust, mantle, core, and interior resembles Earth
-The force of gravity is one third as strong as Earth
Past Exploration: Mariner 10 that was lanched by USA in the years 1974-75, the Messenger, aslo launched by the USA was lanched in the years 2004,2008-9 and went into orbit in 2011
Future Exploration: The Bepi Colombo will be launched by Europe/Japan in 2014
Mercury Continued..
