As is known, that living things such as humans, animals, and plants live on planet earth. Where the earth itself is part of the members of the solar system.
Our solar system is called the Milky Way galaxy. In general, the solar system consists of the sun, planets, comets and meteorites with the sun at the center of the solar system.
While the existence of planets, comets, and meteorites will be attracted by the sun’s gravity and will orbit around the sun. The formation of the solar system itself, you can know when you are in junior high and high school that there are various theories available.
And one of the most widely believed theories is about the origin of the Milky Way galaxy called the Nebula Theory.
Planets in the Solar System
The temperature on Mercury’s surface reaches 806 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. How come? Because the distance between this planet and the sun is very close. Unlike the earth which has a satellite in the form of the moon, the planet Mercury does not have a satellite.
The second planet is Venus. Where Venus is the name of the Roman goddess of love. Because this planet is also not far from the sun, the temperature during the day can reach 879.8 degrees Fahrenheit. As for the size is smaller than the size of the earth.
Then the third planet is the planet where we all live and carry out various activities. That planet is planet Earth. In this planet conditions are more balanced which allows living things to survive and live life. Earth has a natural satellite called the moon.
The planet Mars is often dubbed the Red Planet because of its reddish color. This is of course the reason, that there is a lot of sand dust content on Mars that makes it look red. This fourth planet has an average temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Even on Mars there is also a very large mountain called Mount Olympus Mons.
If you are asking what is the largest planet in the solar system, then the answer is Jupiter. Jupiter exists because it is formed from a gaseous mass in the form of helium and hydrogen. Even this planet also has many satellites orbiting it.
The second largest planet after Jupiter is Saturn. We will have no trouble recognizing this planet. Because Saturn is a planet that has rings around it. The existence of Saturn is because it is formed from helium gas and hydrogen. As for the rings, they come from rocks and ice particles.
Another planet in the solar system is Uranus. Uranus was the first planet discovered using a telescope. If you look, this planet is blue-green. This is due to the presence of methane gas.
The last planet is Neptune. Where the name Neptune itself is taken from the name of the Roman god of the sea. While the existence of the planet Neptune is 80% formed from water, ammonia, and methane. These substances surround a small rock core.
Those are the 8 planets in the solar system. Previously Pluto was included in this solar system. However, it is known that Pluto does not meet any of the requirements as a planet.
