We live inside the sun. Not the visible part, but the sun's outer atmosphere has been thought to extend all the way to Neptune
The Solar System was formed approximately 4.6 billion years ago
Almost everything on Earth is a rare element
There are Mars rocks on Earth (and we didn’t bring here).
Despite being closer to The Sun, Mercury isnt the hottest planet in our solar system venus is
Jupiter has the biggest ocean of any planet
Even really small bodies can have moons revolving around.
Pluto isn’t the only known dwarf planet in our solar system there are 4 others(Ceres, Makemake, Haurnea, Eris)
Ceres actually contains more fresh water beneath its surface than all the fresh water on Earth combined.

In spite of all these other objects in the Solar System the sun accounts for 99.8% of its total mass
There are more stars in the sky than all of the grains of sand on Earth.
Sirius (Dog star )is much brighter than the sun. In fact, no star is as bright as Sirius.
The Solar System is entirely dependent on Sun & the Sun is the only member of our solar system which is self- luminous i.e which has its own light.
Sun is the source of all energy for life on Earth.
The moon is drifting away from the earth at a speed of about 5 cm per year.
A Supernova explosion produces more energy in its first ten seconds than the Sun during the whole of its 10 billion year lifetime and that for a brief period, it creates more energy than the rest of a galaxy put together!!
On Neptune, one can find jet stream winds traveling at more than 1,500 mph.
When the moon is directly over your head, you weigh slightly less.
Saturn is 95 times heavier than earth but it will still float in water because it has such a low density
Saturn Has a Hexagon-Shaped Storm
