Infographic: Incredible Facts About Our Solar Systemzoom in

This giant infographic seems to just go on and on and on, but it provides some fascinating information about the Milky Way. Beginning with the Sun, the infographic moves out to each planet and planetoid and provides the mass, volume, diameter and other information for each object. It also tells us that the windiest planet is Neptune, with winds of 2,100 kilometers and hour and that the fastest planet in terms of orbital velocity is Mercury, traveling at an astounding 170,503 kilometers and hour. Did you know that to travel from Earth to Neptune by a jet plane would take 640 years and if you were to ride your bicycle, you’d have to pedal for 51,500 years?
