While the planets series' information is quite impressive, when using scientific notation you should have one diget followed by decimals and an exponent. For example: Jupiter's mass is written as 1898.6x10^24, when 1.8986X10^27 would be more correct.

If you use the same power of ten for all planets, masses can be compared more easily. That's common practice in science.
