  • The largest volcano in our solar system is on Mars, called Olympus Mons.

  • Venus rotates in the opposite direction to most planets in our solar system.
  • The Milky Way galaxy is estimated to contain over 100 billion stars.
  • A day on Venus is longer than a year, as it takes Venus about 243 Earth days to complete one rotation.

  • There are more possible iterations of a game of chess than there are atoms in the observable universe.
  • Uranus rotates on its side, likely due to a massive collision early in its history.
