The planets are bigger than the earth, the first planet 4.2 times the size of the earth, the latter 6.7 times the earth and the third of the earth 9.4 times. extraordinary speed of their orbits. The most rapidly orbiting within four days, the second within 10 days and the slowest is 20 days. compare with the earth orbiting the sun in 365 days.
