From closest to furthest from the [[sun]]: [[Mercury]] [[Venus]] [[Earth]] [[Mars]] Terrestrial planets all have roughly the same structure: a central metallic core, mostly iron, with a surrounding silicate mantle. The [[Moon]] is similar but lacks an iron core. At one time there were probably many more terrestrials, but most have been ejected from the solar system or otherwise destroyed. ---- Also see [[gas giants]] and [[solar system]]
