MERCURY is the smallest and closest to the sun of the planets of the Solar System. Mercury has no satellites.

VENUS's orbit is an ellipse with an eccentricity of less than 1%, forming a more circular orbit of all the planets.

TERRALUNA. Earth with the Moon, occupying the third orbit from the sun.

MARS has two satellites: Phobos, closer to the planet, and Deimos, the most distant.

JUPITER's atmosphere is divided into dark belts (bands) and light regions (zones) all aligned in the direction of the parallels.

SATURN is the only planet with a ring system visible from Earth. The rings are not a single solid object, but a cloud of millions of particles rotating at a speed of 48,000 km / h, 15 times faster than a bullet.

The rotation axis of URANUS is steeply raked, so its north and south poles are where most other planets have the Ecuador.

NEPTUNE has spots, the largest, the Great Dark Spot, had a similar size to Earth, but disappeared in 1994 and has formed another.

PLUTO. Over time, gravity has slowed the rotation of Pluto and Charon (its main satellite) so now present the same face to each other, as if they were connected by an invisible thread.

VESTA is the most massive asteroid, its interior is differentiated into layers.

GASPRA or asteroid No. 951, triaxial shaped, not symmetrical.

DAVIDA is an asteroid in the main belt between Mars and Jupiter. It is dark in color and is made of carbon.

EUNOMIA. Asteroid family in the central region of the main asteroid belt, constituted by Eunomia, Io and Lumen.

SEDNA is the smallest body in the Solar System. It is a trans-Neptunian object, perhaps the first known member of the Oort Cloud at the edge of the Solar System.

what about Mars?

We investigate the Solar System and design pieces representing the Major and some Minor Planets. The configurations on each model are not only aesthetic, respond to characteristics of each planet.
