An image of the planets in the solar system and their position from the sun

The hitchhiker’s guide to the solar system

Hold and study real pieces of the Moon, collected by the Apollo astronauts, as well as pieces of Mars and 4.5-billion-year-old meteorites. Plus, take part in a meteorite impacting experiment, plan your own space mission, see how volcanic eruptions reshape the surface of a planet and watch a comet being created.
