"My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas." I don't think so. If you know anything about the solar system, you'd know to take pizzas out of this sentence! From the sun and moon to the planets, how well do you know the solar system?
When it comes to the solar system, we've all had a lesson in our science class about it. We'd focus on the sun, the moon, the planets, and all that surround them in the sky. Your class probably told you about Claudius Ptolemy who thought the Sun revolved around the Earth. He was debunked by Nicolaus Copernicus who proved that the Sun was the center of the universe and all the objects in the solar system revolved around it. Do you know these basics? It's a good start, but there's more!
Do know how many planets lie in the solar system and which one was "demoted" to a dwarf planet? Can you tell the difference between a comet, asteroid, or meteor? Do you know how gravity works in outer space?
Most students had to create a diagram of the solar system in their lifetime, but how well do they really know it? How well do you know it?
Are you ready to launch into outer space with this quiz? Will your answers take you from planet to planet or will you be left floating aimlessly?
Let's find out!
