Radius

Something interesting to look at:

All (known) Bodies in the Solar System Larger than 200 Miles in Diameter

All shown to scale, in order of decreasing radius.

Interesting to note is that, ignoring the sun, eighth and ninth place go to the Solar System's two largest moons - Ganymede and Titan. Mercury follows in tenth place.

Nifty.
I still like Mimas...any planet that takes the time to dress up as the death star for a fancy dress party and likes the suit so much they keep up it is OK in my book.

Odd that Pluto isn't on there...or did I just miss it?

Oops...Mimas is a moon.

Mimas moon.
Pluto planet.

aaaaah, alliteration...

It's there. After Eris, which is after Triton.

Eris is a planet? But then again, Yay! Pluto is a planet again - at least on this chart...

Pacian said...

Yes, a dwarf planet.
