5500 degrees celsius
The is 93 million miles from the Earth
1 million can fit inside of the sun
The sun appears 2 and times larger in Mercury's sky compared to the Earth's.
if you weigh 100 pounds on the Earth,you would only weigh 37 pounds on Mercury.
it takes less than 88 Earth days for Mercury to orbit around the sun.
Venus is only a little smaller than the Earth
Its atmosphere is made up mostly of carbon dioxide.
Venus rotates so slowly that it orbits the sun faster than it can make one whole rotation on its axis. In other words, Venus has a longer day than year.
It takes 243 days for Venus to make a rotation.
It is the only planet that has an atmosphere containing 21 percent oxygen.
t is the only planet that has liquid water on its surface.
The Earth is the only inner planet (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) to have one large satellite, the Moon. Mars has two very tiny moons. Mercury and Venus have none.
Mars is red because it is rusty. There is a lot of iron in the soil, and the air on Mars has made it turn red-just like rusty iron on Earth.
Mars orbits the sun every 687 Earth days.
The Martian “day” is about half a hour longer than Earth.
At its brightest, Mars outshines every other planet apart from Venus.
Jupiter is the largest planet in our Solar system. It is so big that more than 1300 Earths could fit inside it.
Thick, colorful clouds of deadly poisonous gases surround Jupiter.
At the centre of Jupiter is a rocky core, slightly bigger than Earth but weighing about 20 times more.
Since Uranus takes 84 Earth years to go around the sun, this means that each of its poles is in daylight for 42 years and in darkness for the next 42.
Uranus’s atmosphere is mostly hydrogen but it also contains large amounts of a gas called methane. Methane absorbs red light and scatters blue light so a blue-green methane haze hides the interior of the planet from view.
Uranus hides its interior but scientists guess that under the hydrogen-methane atmosphere is a hot, slushy ocean of water, ammonia and methane thousands of miles deep wrapped around a rocky core.
Saturn is the second largest planet.
A 100 pound object on Earth would weight 116 pounds on Saturn.
Saturn has the lowest density of all the planets in the solar system
After Pluto was declassified as a planet, Neptune became the farthest planet from the sun
Neptune's diameter is about 30,200 miles or almost 4 times the Earth's diameter. The planet was named after the Roman sea God.
Neptune is so far away that it took the space probe Voyager 2, 12 years to reach it.
Pluto is technically no longer a planet, but it is still the 10th largest body orbiting around the sun.
The ex-planet got its name from an eleven year old girl in Oxford, England. She named Pluto after the Roman God of the underworld.
Pluto is smaller than the Earth's moon.
