Visiting Venus – Facts for Kids
Would you like to visit another planet? How about Mars or Venus? Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin wants to see astronauts on Mars, but could Venus be a better choice?

Cassini-Huygens – the Prime Mission
Saturn: magnificent rings, a planet-sized moon, and dozens of smaller moons. Three spacecraft had flown by before Cassini-Huygens was launched in 1997. But this mission wouldn't just fly by and snap some photos. It was going to get up close and personal.

Jean-Dominique Cassini
The Cassini Mission to Saturn is one of NASA's best known undertakings. For nearly thirteen years it's sent images and data back from the ringed planet and its moons. But who was the Cassini who gave his name to the spacecraft?

Columbus and the Flat Earth Myth
Doesn't everyone know that in the 15th century people thought the Earth was flat? And that brave Christopher Columbus sailed westward from Spain to get to Asia to show that the Earth was round? Once I'd have answered “Yes” to both of these questions, but it turns out that they are myths.

Triton – Captive Moon of Neptune
The Solar System's big moons are weird and wonderful, and Triton is no exception. It has ice volcanoes. Its "cantaloupe terrain" is unique in the Solar System. It's unlike the other large moons. And it orbits in the wrong direction, so it didn't form near Neptune. But where did it come from?

Andromeda the Chained Princess
Andromeda is in the northern sky eternally chained to her rock. She is one of six constellations described by Ptolemy in the second century that are part of an epic ancient Greek myth. The constellation also contains a quadruple star, a blue snowball, exoplanets and a famous spiral galaxy.
