Mars is a wrecked planet and  a very hot planet that can melt rocks. No One will be able to live on it.

We have nine planets in our solar system. These planets circle around the sun this is could orbits. We have the inner solar system which has Mercury ,Venus,Earth and Mars these are closest to the sun they are called terrestrial planets because they have very rocky surfaces.   

The outer solar system has Jupiter,Saturn,Uranus,Neptune these are sometimes called gas giants .Outside pluto you will find the small dwarf planet Pluto which has a solid but icier surface. Many don’t class  this as a planet anymore but you can read this on the Pluto page on www.planets for kids.  

These two solar systems are separated by the asteroid belt. Our solar system also contains,comet,moons dust,gas and some minor planets.The Earth is unlike other planets in the solar system in a number of different ways.

It is the only planet that has liquid water on its surface.Also is the only planet that has an atmosphere containing 21 percent of oxygen.It is the only planet in the solar system that has life.

Venus orbits around the sun in 262 days. The Earth takes 365 days  to complete a orbit of the Sun. So a year in Venus only takes 262 days!.

The discover of the planet Neptune was one of the most exciting discoveries in astronomy.Neptune can not be seen without a large telescope and was first seen in 1846 from the observatory in Berlin.
But the existence of Neptune was actually been discovered a year earlier in 1865.
Saturn is the last planet that can be seen without telescopes and binoculars and the planet was known in the ancient world before telescoped were invented. The rings can however only be seen with a telescope. The ring of Saturn was first seen by Galileo in 1610 through a telescope.   

Pluto was first spotted 54 years ago that means in Uranus and Neptune. Pluto is the  is the second dwarf planet nexted to the sun. Pluto isn't the only dwarf planet there are four other planets.

Mercury is one of the closest planets and it is the the eighth biggest planet.Mercury is slightly smaller than its moons. It is also the small planet that orbits closer around the sun in our solar system. Mercury is the best and fastest planet to orbit the sun with only in 88 days.

All the burning light around the sun only takes 8 minutes to reach the earth it is (92,955,807,) miles away. The sun is actually a sun that is in the middle of the solar system. The sun  core is around 13600000 degrees

Each galaxy includes with 100 and billions of stars there are over 100 galaxies. The stars in the sky they are massive,bright,sphere of a very hot gas that  holds the stars  with its own gravity.

The Earth has only one satellite which is the moon. Did you know that the moon orbits the Earth in 27.3 days. Mon Huygen is the tallest and biggest mountain on the moon.
