Neptune
Our own world seems pretty big to us but we are by no means the largest planet in
the solar system. Jupiter has 317 times more mass than Earth and Saturn is 95 times
as massive as Earth. But even with those planetary giants, the Sun contains 99.86%
of the mass of the entire solar system.
Order of planets: Pluto, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Earth, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn,
Jupiter, Sun
Pluto is a bit of a puzzle. All the inner planets are small rocky worlds. The outer
planets are gas giants. However Pluto, the furthest of the planets from the sun is a
small icy rock of a planet. It is almost a double planet system because it is orbited by
a large moon, Charon. The discovery of the moon Charon weakened the theory that
Pluto is an escaped moon of Neptune. It is now thought that Pluto came from a
region of space debris left after the forming of the solar system called the Kuiper Belt.
