How do we know our location in the Milky Way? How do planetary bodies interact? Is Earth affected by what happens elsewhere in the solar system? How have asteroids survived long periods at very high temperatures? Could life be transferred from one planet to another, and how would we react to alien contact? These are just some of the questions considered in this history of the solar system and our developing understanding of it. Off-mint.
