Extreme Planets

 

For centuries, humanity has wondered whether we are alone in the Universe. With the discovery in 1995 of the first planet orbiting another star, we now know that planets are not unique to our own Solar System. In fact, these “extrasolar” planets now appear to be quite common. From water worlds to molten landscapes, inhabitable moons to planets with multiple suns, these exotic worlds aren’t just science fiction anymore!

Run Time: 40 minutes

Age appropriateness: General audiences (not recommended for children under 5)
