The planets of the modern solar system are grouped into several different and sometimes overlapping classifications, as illustrated in the following figure: the planets inside the orbit of the earth are called the inferior planets : mercury and venus. A new definition would add 102 planets to our solar system — including pluto icy world at the edge of our solar system is it a planet, as scientists believed for nearly seven decades.
Eyes on the solar system lets you explore the planets, their moons, asteroids, comets and the spacecraft exploring them from 1950 to 2050 the exploration of the solar system is uniquely poised to bring planetary scientists, worldwide, together under the common theme of understanding the origin, evolution and bodies of our solar.
There are the small planets: mercury, venus, earth, mars and pluto these planets have diameters less than 13000 these planets have diameters less than 13000 kilometers.
The solar system is the gravitationally bound system of the planets and the sun plus other objects that orbit it, either directly or indirectly of the objects that orbit the sun directly, the largest eight are the planets, with the remainder being smaller objects, such as dwarf planets and small solar system bodiesof the objects that orbit the sun indirectly, the moons, two are larger than. The independent pluto lost its by his count, 102 new planets could be added to our solar system under the new criteria he was on the data analysis team for the new horizons spacecraft as.
