    Wrong!

    Ceres is so big that it is also a dwarf planet!

  2. NASA
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    One day on Mercury takes 59 Earth days.

  3. NASA/JHU-APL/SRI
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Though there is likely a whole bunch more, scientists have officially recognized five dwarf planets: Ceres, Pluto, Eris, Makemake and Haumea.

    Sure Mercury is closer to the Sun, but Venus has a pretty serious greenhouse situation going on over there, leading to temperatures hot enough to melt lead.

  5. NASA
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Mars is around 60% smaller than Earth by radius.

  6. Correct!
    Wrong!

    27 days, yo.

  7. NASA
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    There's plenty of hydrogen in the atmosphere, but the denser planet part is mostly water, ammonia, and methane.

  8. NASA
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The Oort Cloud is where most long-period comets are thought to come from. Its really really out there.

  9. Correct!
    Wrong!

    Venus and Mercury do not have any moons.

  10. NASA / Southwest Research Institute / Alex Parker
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    For a planet to be a planet, it has to orbit the Sun, be large enough to be spherical, and massive enough to "clear its orbit." Pluto fails the third part of this test.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Uranus and Venus spin in an entirely different direction compared to the other planets (and Sun) in the solar system.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    There are lots of gaps and divisions, but scientists recognize seven major rings.

  13. University of Copenhagen/Lars Buchhave / Via jpl.nasa.gov
    Correct!

    This is not our solar system's first rodeo.

  14. NASA
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's on Mars. It's called Olympus Mons.

  15. NASA
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Titan is a pretty rad place, too.
