After 3 long years, episode 3 of Winners and Losers is finally here with Episode 3: Planets.
In this episode I look in great detail at the sizes of the planets, compared to each other, and what Earth would be like if it were the size of the largest and smallest planets in the Solar System. I also go on to look at mass, rotation/orbital periods, moons, and axial tilt.
I look at some of the odd things about the Solar Systems, like why Venus has a day longer than its year, and why the planets actually spins backwards relative to Earth.
