ExoPlanets: Worlds of Wonder

The goldenage of extra-solar planet exploration has begun! Join the first robotic space probe duo, the EXO1 unit and sidekick ProbeB, as they journey outside our solar system to the many new worlds astronomers have discovered. Audiences will visit gas giant planets caught in a deadly dance with their host stars, frozen rogue planets hurtling through space and planets drifting comfortably within the Goldilocks Zone, the area around a star where earth-like worlds may exist. Also discover new insights about our own Earth, Moon, Sun and the remarkable solar system we inhabit.
