The Great Spacer The Great Spacer is a gigantic "mother ship" used by the Plejaren, which only exists in outer space. Thus, it does not land on a planet, for it is it's own small man-made, self-contained world. It is of enormous size, about 17 kilometers (a little over 10.5 miles) tall, and has a crew of 143,000 human beings and androids. This technology was gained by the Plejaren from the Timmar, Asket's people, in 1971. The Great Spacer is an egg-shaped ship, and is divided into roughl

Scientists first observed Saturn’s auroras in 1979. Decades later, these shimmering ribbons of light still fascinate. For one thing they’re magnificently tall, rising hundreds of miles above the planet’s poles.

Mercury is on the fast track!  Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and is named after the messenger to the Roman gods, whose speed was enhanced by his winged sandals.  Mercury is the fastest planet in the solar system, flying around the sun in a mere 88 days.  Mercury races through space at 30 miles per second, outpacing Earth who clocks in at 19 miles a second.   When seated, Mercury measures 5" tall and is recommended for ages 3 and up.

nasa That's no moon... oh wait, yes it is. It's Saturn's moon Mimas and it's large Herschel Crater. Shadows cast across the moon, provide an indication of the size of the crater's towering walls and central peak.  Named after the icy moon's discoverer, astronomer William Herschel, the crater stretches 86 miles (139 kilometers) wide -- almost one-third of the diameter of Mimas (246 miles or 396 kilometers) itself. Large impact craters often have peaks in their center. Herschel's peak stands…

Located in the western hemisphere of Mars the massive shield volcano is approx. 25 km (16 mi) high making it nearly three times as tall as Mount Everest. The massive diameter of 374 miles also makes the volcano about the same size as Arizona. The extraordinary size of Olympus Mons is likely because Mars lacks mobile tectonic plates. The…
