The solar system
By: Alex Rivas
The solar system is made up of many things. The sun is the most important object in the solar system because without it we couldn't live.
I found this photo from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun
The order of the planets is Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, then Neptune. After Mars comes the asteroid belt. The asteroid belt is another system in the solar system. The asteroid belt is estimated to have more than 750,000 asteroids.
Comets are large chunks of ice and dust whose orbits can be very long. Comets have a tail, a coma, and a nucleus.
