Analysis

Find the radii of all the planets:

In[3]:=
ResourceData[
  "Sample Data: Solar System Planets and Moons"][All, "Radius"]
Out[3]=

Find the total mass of all moons for each planet:

In[4]:=
ResourceData[
  "Sample Data: Solar System Planets and Moons"][All, "Moons", Total, \
"Mass"]
Out[4]=

Get a dataset with moons that are more than 1% of the mass of Earth:

In[5]:=
ResourceData[
  "Sample Data: Solar System Planets and Moons"][All, "Moons", 
 Select[#Mass > Quantity[0.01, "EarthMass"] &]]
Out[5]=
