Hint
Answer
It is the densest planet in the Solar System.
Earth
This planet has an axial tilt that is almost zero (meaning it has no distinguishable seasons).
Mercury
This planet has the larger satellite of the solar system (with a diameter greater than that of the planet Mercury).
Jupiter
It is the site of Olympus Mons, the second highest known mountain within the Solar System (the tallest on a planet).
Mars
It has a mass of 317.8 Earths and has the shortest day of all the planets.
Jupiter
It is the only planet of the Solar System that is less dense than water (about 30% less).
Saturn
After the Moon, it's the brightest natural object in the Earth night sky.
Venus
It has the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in the Solar System.
Uranus
Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9 was a comet that broke apart and collided with this planet, providing the first direct observation of an extraterrestrial collision of Solar System objects.
Jupiter
The gravitational interaction of this planet with its moon is gradually slowing the planet's rotation and pulling them apart.
Earth
Its axis of rotation is tilted sideways, nearly into the plane of its revolution about the Sun (meaning that it's rolling around the sun instead of spinning around the sun like the other planets).
Uranus
This planet has a very weak magnetic field. This surprised scientists, who expected it to have a magnetic field similar in strength to Earth's.
Venus
It has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, which are very small and irregularly shaped. Phobos is expected to collide with this planet in the far future.
Mars
This planet revolves around the Sun once every 84 Earth years.
Uranus
It was the first planet found by mathematical prediction rather than by empirical observation.
Neptune
A persisting hexagonal vortex in the atmosphere around the north pole was first noted in the Voyager images of this planet.
Saturn
A year in this planet is just 88 Earth days long. Also it's the most cratered planet in the Solar System.
Mercury
Is by far the hottest planet in the Solar System.
Venus
This planet has a powerful magnetic field caused by the nickel-iron core of the planet, coupled with its rapid rotation.
Earth
It has a rotation period of 17h 14min and is the coldest planet in the solar system.
Uranus
The atmospheric pressure at the planet's surface is 92 times that of Earth's.
Venus
It is currently host to five functioning spacecrafts (as of 2014).
Mars
Its largest moon, Titan, is larger than the planet Mercury and is the only moon in the Solar System to retain a substantial atmosphere.
Saturn
Among the gaseous planets in the solar system, it is the most dense.
Neptune
Its characteristic surface color is caused by iron oxide, more commonly known as hematite, or rust.
Mars
It has the strongest winds of any planet in the Solar System, with recorded wind speeds as high as 2,100 kilometres per hour (1,300 mph).
Neptune
This planet is 5.5% of Earth's mass and has no moons.
Mercury
The fifth largest planet in the Solar System.
Earth
The possible presence of underground water oceans on two of its moons has led to speculation that life could be possible there (in Europa and Ganymede).
Jupiter
In this planet a day lasts longer than a year (243 versus 224.7 Earth days).
Venus
The average distance between this planet and the Sun is over 1.4 billion kilometres (9 times the Sun-Earth distance or 9 Astronomical Units).
Saturn
It is the only planet, other than the Earth, that has polar ice caps.
Mars
This planet has the most extreme temperature change between day and night.
Mercury
Its moon, Triton, is the only large moon in the Solar System with a retrograde orbit, which is an orbit in the opposite direction to its planet's rotation.
Neptune
It is the second least dense planet in the Solar System, after Saturn.
Uranus
Even though this planet is called a gas giant, scientists believe it has a solid core.
Saturn
Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity finally provided the explanation for the anomalous precession observed on this planet.
Mercury
It is the only planet that has a center of mass with the sun that lies outside the sun itself.
Jupiter
The gravity on this planet is the second largest of any planet in the Solar System, behind only Jupiter.
Neptune
This planet is home to millions of species of life and gradually one of them is extinguishing all the others.

It is kinda easy to get 100% since there are only 8 possible answers..

Also, any of the gas giants might (probably) have a solid core.

I really enjoyed the quiz. However, probably like some of the others I believe the time should be shortened - I finished in three minutes, so maybe a reasonable limit would be five or six (I know my stuff :D )

I have 6 min left, knew about half, quarter was an educated guess (like which is the biggest planet, well not one of the first four) and like 10 of them pretty much a complete guess.
