We’re all familiar with the myth that planets are “small and fluffy”.
But is it possible that our solar system has planets as large as the sun?
The sun is actually a much bigger, far more massive object than our solar systems are, so its a good place to start, says geologist Dr Michael Eisenstein of the University of New Mexico.
The Sun is actually one of the biggest objects in the solar system.
“The solar system is about four times larger than the sun,” he says.
“Its more than twice the size of our planet.”
In fact, astronomers say the sun is bigger than our entire solar system and our solar planets are the largest objects in our solar neighborhood, according to a study by the US National Solar Observatory.
But there are other theories about what these objects are made of.
Solar system bodies are composed of ice and rock and, in some cases, gas and dust.
What’s more, our solar planetary system is comprised of a huge number of rocky planets.
But that’s only a fraction of the solar systems that exist.
If we look at the mass of these objects, it’s clear that they are not all the same, says Dr Eisenstein.
For example, Mercury and Venus are actually smaller than the Sun.
According to one estimate, Mercury has a mass of around 100 times that of the Sun, while Venus has a size of around 30 times that.
A planet orbiting a star is known as a planet, but the Sun is also known as the Sun-like star.
So what are the different kinds of planets?
There are three kinds of planetary bodies: gas planets, which are similar to our Earth-like planets, and rocky planets, like Jupiter and Saturn, which have an abundance of water.
Gas planets are more common, but rocky planets are also abundant in the Solar System.
The most common type of rocky planet is the one known as an Oort Cloud, which is a cloud of rocky material that orbits a star.
They are called planetary cores because they form around a star and they are where a planet’s rocky core is.
It’s this rocky core that is found on many planets, but it’s not clear exactly what kind of material these planets have.
Another type of planet is a gas giant, which may be rocky, icy or liquid.
Rocking planets may be found around rocky planets that have oceans, but they are rare.
We know that rocky planets can form in the early stages of formation.
There may be a mixture of rocky and icy planets around rocky stars, which means that rocky objects are the most common types of rocky planetary bodies in our Solar System, says Eisenstein, but there may be other types as well.
As the Sun rotates, the gravitational pull of its parent star affects the planets around it, which can create the kind of planet we see today.

Scientists say we may see signs of this type of formation as soon as 10 billion years from now.
And in a study, researchers at the University at Buffalo said that a recent discovery of the Higgs boson might point to a way to explain why some objects in other stars are not as common as they are.
Higgs bosons are extremely small particles which are found in the Universe and are predicted to be the building blocks of matter and energy.
They were first discovered in the late 1970s.
In the past, the Universe was divided into two halves, called the Big Bang and the Big Crunch.
Now, astronomers have found a third half, the Cosmological Constant, which indicates the universe was born a little earlier than predicted.
That means the Universe may be growing and evolving, and this new cosmological constant might indicate that this evolution is happening faster than previously thought.
These findings could lead to a new understanding of the formation of the Solar system and its planets.
“There’s a lot more to discover, a lot of new things that we can learn,” Eisenstein says.
