What planets are bigger than Earth?

The four gas giants are larger than Earth: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Venus is slightly smaller, but very nearly the same size as Earth. Mercury and Mars are smaller than Earth.

So there are 4 planets larger than Earth in our solar system, and they are the four gas giants.solar_system_3

Are there other conscious-minded creatures on another planet or solar system?

Are there other conscious-minded creatures on another planet or solar system?

It is highly likely. Yes. Do we know for sure? No.

We have no proof as of date of any life outside our tiny little Earth. We don’t even have any evidence of past life from anywhere other place than Earth.

Will we ever know? We hope so. Our best chance is finding some microbes on Titan or some other moon in our solar system. That would be a huge revelation!cassini

Are there photographs of the planets from their surface?

As Bobby Sherman has already pointed out, we have sent spacecraft to the surface of Venus and Mars. We’ve also sent people to our moon and a lander to Titan orbiting Saturn. We’ve retrieved photos from all these places. Here they are.

First, our sister planet Venus (sister because it’s almost the same size as Earth), was photographed by the Russians.

Next, Mars has been photographed many, many times by our Mars Rovers.

Our moon was photographed by astronauts walking on it:

Titan was imaged by NASA by sending a probe to the surface.

Those are the places we visited on the surface. Of course, we’ve orbited and passed by many other bodies in our solar system, but this is where we have images from the ground.
