Names and important facts of 8 planets of solar system:

The solar system consists of the Sun and the celestial bodies, which are bound to each other in this system by the force of gravity. The planetary system is a group of celestial objects revolving around a star that is not other stars, such as planets, dwarf planets, natural satellites, asteroids, meteors, comets and celestial dust. Our solar system is made up of our sun and its planetary system. These bodies include 8 planets, their 166 known satellites, 5 dwarf planets and billions of smaller bodies. These smaller bodies include asteroids, icy Kuiper circles, comets, meteors, and interplanetary dust.

The four smaller inner planets of the Solar System, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, which are called terrestrial planets, are mainly made of stone and metal. And this includes the Asteroid Circle, the four giant gas giant outer gas giant planets, the Kuiper Circle and the Scattered Circle. The hypothetical Oort cloud may also exist beyond about a thousand times the distance from the charted regions. The flow of plasma from the Sun (solar wind) penetrates the solar system. It forms a bubble in the interstellar medium called the heliomandel, which extends out from it to the middle of the scattered plate.
