Imagine you are a traveller from the depths of interstellar space. As you approach our solar system, what will you find? Long before you reach the Sun, you traverse the Oort cloud, the deep-freeze at our galaxy`s outermost reaches. You pass by the gas giants and their families of moons and rings. Finally, you reach the inner solar system, and the rocky worlds of Mars, Earth, Venus and Mercury.
If you were looking for a place to call home, which world would you choose? From the cold frontier inhabited by the dwarf planets of the outer solar system to the fiery heat of the Sun, any self-respecting traveller would ultimately be drawn to Earth, to explore and understand how this planet alone has come to be an ideal haven for life. Discover seasonal climate changes and witness wondrous Moon phases and eclipses from the surface of this unique world.
Come along for the ride, and see our neighborhood in space from a new perspective.
