The Solar System is made up of 8 planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and quasi planet Pluto. In this group there are more than 100 moons or satellites 70,000 small planets and comets. The planets orbits are elliptical except for Pluto. The Solar Systems mass 99.9 percent of the sun.

The Sun: diameter is 139.2millio km. its 109 times of the Earth. The volume is 130.4million times the mass is 1.99x10×33th power grams. 330,000 times of the earth. Approximately 50million years ago it was originated.

Mercury: Closest to the Sun, distance from the Sun 46,000,000 kilometers to 70,000,000kilometers orbits around the Sun in 88 days. The mass is 1/18 of the Earth. The diameter is 2,400kilometers. There are no moons or atmosphere.

Venus: distance from the sun 108,210,000 kilometers. It orbits the Sun in 225 days. The diameter is less than the Earth but the volume is 0.8times the earth. It has no mass but it has 10 times more magnitude.

Earth: The diameter is 12,756km. 149, 600,000kilometers average distance from the Sun. The volume is 5.973x10×27th power it orbits the sun 365.2563 days. The Earth was created 46billion years ago and tilted 66.56degrees.

Mars: the closest to Earth at 78,000,000 kilometers from 15 to 17 years 50,000,000 kilometers. It rotates at 24.37 hours , orbits around the sun at 687 days. And half the size of Earth. Volume is 1/10 of the Earth. It has 2 moons ( Deimos and Phobos)

Jupiter: 318 times the volume of Earth. 11 times the size, the biggest planet, it rotates at 10 hours, it orbits the Sun at 11.86 years and has more than 100 moons. It was discovered by Galeleio its moons are; Io, Europa, Ganemede and Calisto all named by Galeleio.

Saturn: second largest planet, orbits the sun 29 years and 167 days. The diameter is 9.4 times of earth. The volume is 95 times of Earth. The equator is visible like a plank of wood. There is a solid ring of particles around it and has more than 35 satellites.

Uranus: distance from the Sun is 28,000,000,000kilometers and orbits the sun 84 years. The volume is 14.5 of earth, has more than 27 satellites. Discovered in 1781 by F. W. Herchel, orbits the sun at 84.02 years and 4 times the size of earth. The mass is 15 times more than of Earth mass.

Neptune: distance from the earth is 4,500,000,000kilometers and has more than 100 satellites and orbits the sun 165years. The equatorial distance is 24,760kilometers 3.88 times of earth. Volume is 17 times and mass is 44 times and rotates at 16.10 hours. It has 13 satellites.

Pluto: a quasi planet, once a real planet. Distance from the sun 44,000,000,000 kl to 73,000,000,000kilometers. It has 3 satellites, the volume is 1/500 of Earth, it rotates at 6 days and 9 hours. And orbits the sun at 248 years.
