Components of the Solar System

 The Solar System

The solar system consists of the sun and the nine planets with their satellites. The sun is at the centre of the planets and all other planets revolve around it on elliptical orbits. The nine planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto

The path followed by each of these planets around the sun is called ORBIT. A smaller body which moves around a planet is called SATELLITE.

By 11:59 pm Dec. 31st, 2019, we will reset all user performance data, including points and ranks to enable newcomers compete favourably for the limelight!

Prizes will be given to the top 5 MVPs of the Hall of Fame, at the end of the 2019/2020 academic session.

Earn a referral fee per user for recommending us to your students, colleagues and school admins.
