This Is The Greatest Story Ever Told, The Creation Of Everything Us. The Programme Investigates How The Universe Came Into Existence Out Of Nothing, And How It Grew From A Miniscule Point, Smaller Than An Atomic Particle, To The Vast Cosmos We See Today.
In the universe ,everything seems to orbit something, planets orbit stars and moons orbit planets. Some moons are volcanic, but the volcanos are ice; others are awash with great oceans. There may be more habitable moons in our galaxy, than there are habitable planets. Moons tell the unknown stories of our solar system and show us how it all works.
In our own solar system, there are just 8 planets. But orbiting 6 of those planets are moons, lots and lots of moons, more than 300 of them, each one is different, each one a world on its own. While we look at our own solar system, we see a lot of planets, but even more than planets, we see moons. And in many ways, they are more interesting than the planets they go around. We have moons that are airless and apparently dead like ours, but others in our solar system, we have moons with oceans inside them and moon with atmosphere surround them. And I’m for moon and you can keep the planets.
The biggest eruptions, the coldest temperatures and the largest oceans in the solar system,they are all on moons. There are moons with ice volcanos. There are moons with lakes of methane, and metane rainfall, smog, clouds. Moons that are so volcanically active that they keep remaking their surface. Moons with all kinds of plume shooting off into the space. Really, a much wider range of environments than we ever could have imagined.
