Terrestrial planets are denser, smaller, and rockier planets than those of gas planets. They reside in the inner solar system because during the formation of the solar system, the spinning disk that formed the solar system caused all of the denser objects to collect together in the center. These denser objects are composed of rock and metal, and these are terrestrial planets.
