Why are there no square planets

Report as

Planets are formed around compounds of metals and dust. So gravity pulls then to eachother which gets bigger and bigger, agreed? Well this gravity pulls from every single angle which would be a sphere rather than cube

oh! BrandenB, you're here, tell them how you made it up and it's really because of square's personal issues....

definately. it is jealous of a circle's superior area to perimeter ratio

because squares have some serious personal issues and i don't think they would do well with having to share one sun....

How would you know? No one has explored the whole universe yet.

Anything big enough to be considered a planet qualifies to be a planet because it is a certain size. Therefore, gravity acts upon it, forcing it inward from all angles, giving it a spherical shape.

As far as you've been able to observe.

The gravity of a planet would pull everything to the core in every directions. Making it impossible to form a square.

Well, there's always other universes that don't have gravity

A sphere has the smallest surface area per volume making it the simplest shape to conform too under certain pressures. Gravity which wants to pull everything to a central location if strong enough will then cause a large enough mass to take this shape.

hmmmmmmm, i dont believe our planet is actually a sphere, but it is not square either...planets do not have a perfect conventional shape so to speak

The answer is pretty simple..gravity pulls everything closer to its center making it all round..and vala the planet is a circular shape
