|Our Solar System|
Today on Far Future Horizons we present an exciting episode from the acclaimed documentary series How the Universe Works ~ Extreme Planets.
This installment follows the remarkable journey of planets as they grow from grains of dust to the magnificently diverse worlds we see today.
There are just eight planets in our solar system, but there could be a hundred billion in our Milky Way galaxy alone. As we enter into a golden age of planetary discovery the possibilities are endless.
Pushing out deep into space we are finding planets that are stranger than we could ever have imagined — from giant burning gas spheres to icy orphaned worlds wandering in interstellar space. So just how did they get to be so different?
