The solar system to which we belong it is the representation of perfection in the Universe that we know. Decades of scientific exploration, inside and outside our galaxy, have yielded no evidence of anything similar to what is happening in our stellar region.
A planet like Earth, on which develops life as we know it and 7 (or 8) other worlds which have a very specific function so that we can breathe every day, it’s simply wonderful.
Scientists, even with some theories, haven’t fully understood why this (until now) only happens with the Sun, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Mercury, Venus and Uranus.
However, they calculate other curiosities to be added little by little until perhaps in the future they find the answer at all. One of these peculiarities is the speed at which each of the worlds moves and the time it takes to go around the Sun.
Velocity of planets in the solar system
This may sound absurd. But the speed of each world influences even the asteroids that threaten Earth. The gas giants protect us from the high activity of the asteroid belt, so we don’t care about their speed.
Mercury and Venus are the fastest planets. The first mentioned circles the Sun in 2.4 months, while the other in just 6.2. They move at 47.4 and 35 kilometers per second respectively.
In third position is the Earth with its speed of 29.8 kilometers per second when we go around the Sun, very close is Mars with its 24.1 km/s and its year and eight months to go around the Sun.
Finally, there are four planets which, due to their distance and their gravitational force, move much more slowly around the Sun, they are, in order of speed: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
