95 Worlds and Counting
Visit the solar system's most exotic real estate, the moons. Once dismissed as trivial balls of ice, these celestial bodies may hold the key to life in space.
If We Had No Moon
Without the moon, days would last four hours, winds would blow with hurricane force, and Earth would be shrouded in a dense, toxic atmosphere. What luck that 50 million years ago, Earth sustained a major collision that created its moon!

The Permian mass extinction was the worst disaster ever to hit Earth. It shattered ecological order and changed evolution forever. Now, scientists shed new light on the mystery of the most destructive event in the planet's history.
A team of astronomers and scientists try to find clues to the origins of our galaxy and try to locate a strange presence hidden deep in the core of the galaxy. What they find in this mysterious realm harbors clues to the origin of the world.
