Solar System B Question Marathon

Postby Jim_R » August 28th, 2013, 8:37 pm

Question Marathon for Solar System B.
-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Alright, I guess I'll start this with an easy one.

What are the 8 planets in order from the sun? What are the five dwarf planets in our solar system.

Protip: there are five dwarf planets in the solar system.

That's up for debate, I count three.

I could find some sources to show that it's more likely to be defined as five. Everything is up for debate...but if we went by IAU definitions perhaps that could end it.

The only debate I see is if there are five or more than five. The IAU currently recognizes five (Pluto, Eris, Ceres, Haumea, Makemake), and there are many more objects that could gain dwarf planet status that have not done so yet or have not been discovered.

Since nobody has told me if I was right... I am going to assume that I got it right, so here it is...

What is the planet in our solar system that is the most similar to Earth?

That depends on what you mean by similar, but I'm saying Venus.
