Tour the Solar System

Learn about the objects of the solar system in this interactive activity adapted from NASA. Videos and animations introduce basic facts about the Sun and the eight planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Descriptions provide information about each object, such as its size, temperature, composition, surface features, distance, rotation, and orbit. The tour also describes the asteroid belt (including its two largest objects, Ceres and Vesta), the Kuiper belt (including dwarf planets Pluto, Eris, Haumea, and Makemake), comet Halley, the Oort cloud, and the interplanetary medium.
