What is the smallest planet in the solar system?
Last Friday saw us hold our staff quiz night in aid of Autism Anglia 50-year anniversary. A great evening was had by all and more importantly, lots of money raised ! Our grand total will be revealed in July as we have further events planned to raise even more money !!
Thank you to all those who provided prizes for the night, SRC Group, Scott Parnell Ltd, Longwater Construction Supplies, Acorn Architectural Ironmongery Ltd, DJ Evans Group, Shore and Hudson.
Fifty years ago a group of parents realised that there was no specialist provision for their autistic children. Two sets of parents with newly diagnosed children set up the Essex Society for Autistic Children in Colchester and in Norfolk five families in a similar situation set up formed the Norwich and Norfolk Society for Autistic Children.
After just four years of fundraising, Doucecroft School had been established in Kelvedon and subsequently new adult services were opened as their children grew.
Thanks to these pioneering group of parents, and the merger of the two charities in 2008, Autism Anglia is now the leading provider of autism services in East Anglia.
ANSWER: I bet you thought it was Pluto but in fact its Mercury.
The smallest planet in regards to both mass and volume is Mercury — at 4,879 km across and 3.3010 x 1023 kg, this tiny world is nearly 20 times less massive than Earth, and its diameter is about 2½ times smaller. In fact, Mercury is closer in size to our Moon than to Earth. In case you’re wondering, though, Mercury is still significantly larger than the dwarf planet Pluto: Pluto’s equatorial diameter is just 2,302 km, about half Mercury’s width.
