Everybody knows what the planets are. The earth we live on is a planet too. It revolves around the Sun at the same time as seven more planets. This system comprises eight planets and the star Sun is called the solar system. It may surprise you that the people of ancient Indian civilization came to know about the solar system centuries before the modern scientists discovered it and that's the reason we can find a different name for each solar system planet in the Indian languages such as Hindi and Sanskrit.
