Once upon a time, it might have been assumed that most of the planets which orbit the Sun (apart from Saturn with its rings) were pretty much the same and most of the moons which orbit the planets were - well - moonlike; grey and cratered like our moon.
The space missions of the past 40 years such as Viking, Voyager, Galileo, and Cassini, changed all that as we came to realise that our Solar System was filled with the most extraordinary range of objects imaginable. The picture below shows just the four largest moons of Jupiter - all different and all unique in their geology and chemistry.
The planets are even more diverse. In this webpage I will attempt to list in six different categories some of the stand-out objects of the Solar System, and describe the features which make them so special.
