Abstract

The solar system is our home. Its central star, the sun, is a roaring ball of nuclear fire that illuminates eight planets that orbit it, one of which is the Earth where we live. Apart from that, there are several smaller dwarf planets, as well as millions of rocks, asteroids, and smaller chunks of ice, all in revolution around the sun.
