Our Solar System: Inner Planets

The sun is surrounded by all kinds of planets, meteors, comets, and planetoids. It also has an asteroid belt, and inside it are the inner planets.

Our Solar System: Outer Planets

On the other side of the sun's asteroid belt are another four plants, which we call the outer planets. Get to know them!

Gravity and Inertia

There is a special force of attraction that keeps our planet together. Do you know what it is?

A Day on Earth

What causes night and day? Read this, and the next time you wake up, you will know the reason for the sunrise!

The Moon

We love our moon. But did you know that any natural object that orbits a planet is called a moon? That is correct! Our moon is not the only moon.

The Universe

The universe means everything, all of space. Do you ever wonder how big it is? So do scientists.
