Mercury is the smallest and closest to the sun of the eight planet. It takes 88 days for mercury to revolve around the sun and 58 days for it to rotate on it's axis. It is made out of iron. Also it is 35,980,000 miles from the sun and has no moons.

The sun is a huge sphere of hot gas made out of hydrogen and helium it is also made out of neon, iron,sicon,magnesium, and sulfur. It is 92,960,000 miles from earth. It makes up 99.86% of the solar system's mass.

Earth is the third planet from the sun, the denset planet in the solar system, the largest of the solar systems four terrestrial planets, and the only planet known to contain life. Its distance from the sun is 92,960,000 miles. It takes 365 days for earth to revolve around the sun and it takes 24 hours to make one rotation. Earths mantle is made of rock contaning silcon,iron,magnesium, aluminum, oxygen and other materials.Its surface is made of silcon,aluminum,iron,calcium,sodium,potassium and magnesium and it has one moon.

Mars is the fourth planet from the sun and the second smallest planet in the solar system,after Mercury. It's moons is Phobos and Deimos. It's reveloution is 1.88 earth year.It's rotation is 24 hours,39 minutes,and 35 seconds.It's surface is fine like talcum powder.Beneath the layer is consists of volcanic basalt rock.The soil of Mars also holds nutrientts such as sodium,potassium,chloride and magnesium

Asteroids are minor planets,especially those of the inner solar system.The larger ones have also been called planetoids.

A comet is an icy small solar system body that,when passing close to the sun heats up and begins to outgas,displaying a tail

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun and the largest planet in the solar system.It is a gas giant with the mass of one-thousandth of that of the sun.It is 483,800,000 miles from the sun.It is made out of water, methane, and ammonia. Jupiter orbits the sun every 11.86 earth years and it takes 9.9 hours for it to rotate and has more than 20 moons.

Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun and the second largest planet in the solar system,after Jupiter.It is 890,700,000 miles from the sun.It is made out of hydrogen and heluim. It takes 29 years for saturn to revolve around the sun and it takes 10.6 hours for it to rotate. Also saturn has more than 20 hours.

Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun. It has the third-largest planatry radius and fourth-largest planatary mass in the solar system. It is 1,787,000,000 miles from the sun. It is made of ice,like water,ammonia and methane. It takes uranus 84 earth years to orbit the sun and it takes 17 hours to rotate on it's axis and has 27 moons.

Neptune is the eigth and farthest planet from the sun in the solar system.Among all the gas giants Neptune is the most dense.It is 2,798,000 miles from the sun. It takes 165 years for it to revolve around the sun and it takes 16 earth years for it to rotate.It is made out of hydrogen,heluim,and methane and has 13 moons.
