Our Solar system is one of the constituents of the Galaxy. Here the milky way extends for hundreds of thousands of light years. The Central element of the Solar system – the Sun. Around it revolve eight planets (the ninth planet Pluto was excluded from this list because he has the mass and gravitational forces are not allowed to be in the same row with the other planets). However, each planet is similar to the following. Among them are small and really huge, icy and fiery, which consists of gas and dense.
The largest planet in the Universe is TrES-4. It was discovered in 2006 and it is located in the constellation Hercules. The planet is called TrES-4 orbits the star, which is at a distance of about 1,400 light years from planet Earth.
The largest planet
The planet TrES-4 – ball, which consists mainly of hydrogen. Its size is 20 times the size of Earth. Researchers claim that the detected diameter of the planet by almost 2 times (actually 1.7) larger than the diameter of Jupiter (the largest planet of the Solar system). The temperature of TrES-4 of about 1260 degrees Celsius. Continue reading
What are the average temperatures on the planets of the Solar system?
For anybody not a secret that earth is the only habitable planet in our Solar system. All the planets, except the Earth, is distinguished by the lack of breathable atmosphere, and many of them are still too hot, or Vice versa — frozen worlds.

“Inhabited area” exists in every star system has planets, it is a certain conditional scope, when in which the planets water can exist in liquid phase. In this connection the planets or their satellites, there are conditions suitable for the emergence of life, similar to earth.
So, hot and cold worlds in our Solar system! What exactly do we know about the temperature of their surfaces and which has an impact on these temperatures? Continue reading
