Overview Of Solar System - SRM UNIVERSITY
The Solar System is the astronomical name for the Sun,
the Earth, and the collection of planets and other rocky and icy objects moving around, or orbiting, the Sun.
The main component of the Solar System is the Sun,
which contains 98.6 percent of the system's mass and whose gravity holds everything else in orbit.
All the main objects in the Solar System formed at the same time, as part of the same process
(see Age of the Earth).
The Earth's orbit around the Sun is nearly a perfect circle, but when mapped it is found that the
Earth moves around the Sun in a very slightly oval shaped, or elliptical orbit. The other planets in the
Solar System also circle the Sun in slightly elliptical orbits. Mercury has a more elliptical orbit than the others,
and some of the smaller objects orbit the Sun in very eccentric orbits.
This is a list of all the planets in the solar system
- Mercury - The planet with the second lowest temperature in our solar system and the closest planet to the Sun.
- Venus - The second planet from the sun
- Earth - It is our home planet and has one moon
- Mars - Closest planet to the Earth
- Jupiter - The largest planet in the solar system
- Saturn - Sixth planet from the sun. It has giant rings surrounding the planet.
- Uranus - Sometimes called the "Sideways Planet"
- Neptune - The farthest planet from the Sun.
- Ceres (dwarf planet) - Ceres is the biggest asteroid in the solar system
- Pluto (dwarf planet) - The first object to be called a Dwarf Planet, It was called a planet for 70 years.
- Haumea (dwarf planet) - Haumea is shaped like an egg
- Makemake (dwarf planet) - Makemake crosses paths with Eris
- Eris (dwarf planet) - Eris follows the most elliptical path of any other Dwarf Planet/planet
- 90377 Sedna - Sedna is three times as far away as Pluto
Some scientists think that there was once a planet called Theia, which crashed into the Earth at one point, creating the Moon
