Wikijunior:Solar System/The Mystery of Space

The Solar System consists of the Sun, eight planets, and many asteroids, comets, moons and planetoids. The Sun is the primary source of energy for everything in the solar System. Earth and the other bodies in the Solar System were created from the remains of the dust cloud from which it was created after the birth of our Sun.
