The inner planets are sometimes called the 'rocky' planets.
Inner planets are sometimes called Terrastrial(sp?) planets
The rock planets. and the outer planets are called the gas giants.
the inner planets are called terrestrial planets because of the rocky surfaces.
They are called the inner planets because between Mars and Jupiter there is a asteroid belt dividing the the outer planets and inner planetsThe inner planets are also know as the Rocky Planets and the Outer Planets are also known are Gas GiantsAnd historically its just because the inner planets are closer to the sun.
The "inner planets" are called inner planets because they are relatively near to the Sun, in the inner part of the Solar System. They are also called the "rocky planets" because they are mainly made of rocks. The "outer planets" are also called "gas giants" and are composed mostly of gases or liquefied gas.
no the inner planets are called "inner" planets bcuz there closer
Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are the 4 inner planets.
Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are called the inner planets.
They're called terrestrial planets.=)
The Outer planets are often referred to as Gaseous planets. The others are the "inner planets" or rocky planets.
The inner planets
the rocky planets
The inner planets are called terrestrial planets because they consist of a solid surface, unlike the gas giants. The terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.
In our solar system we have 8 planets.4 inner planets4 gas giants (2 of which are sometimes called "ice giants")and 5 "dwarf planets" (and counting)
The four inner planets are also known as rocky planets or the terrestrial planets. These are; Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.
The four inner planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, are also known as the rocky planets.
The first four planets are often lumped together into the category of "inner" or "terrestrial" planets:MercuryVenusEarthMarsThe last four are often lumped together into the category of "outer" or "gas giant" planets:JupiterSaturnUranusNeptuneAll of the dwarf planets are terrestrial. The only dwarf planet that can sometimes be called an "inner planet" is Ceres, which orbits between Mars and Jupiter.
The 4 Planets closet to the sun are Mercury, Venus, Earth, & Mars. the inner or terrestrial planets
the four inner planets (mercury, venus, earth and mars) are called the inner planets because they are quite close to the sun. where as the four outer planets ( jupiter, saturn, uranus and neptue) are a lot further away from the sun.
The inner planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. Because of the most part, they have rocky terrain, they are also called Terrestrial Planets.
Gas Giants or Jovian planets
The four planets closest to the sun are called the inner planets. They are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. The asteroid belt lies between the inner and outer planets.
