Introduction to the Solar System

Our solar system is made up of the Sun and all the planets that orbit around it. While the solar system is composed of all kinds of objects, including planets, dwarf planets, comets, and asteroids, we tend to focus on the eight large planets caught in the Sun’s orbit. This course will introduce you to the primary figures in your celestial neighborhood: the solar system.
