In February 2000, the NEAR (Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous) spacecraft orbited Eros, and landed on it the following February. NEAR took about 160,000 images of the asteroid’s surface. 3 ROTATE LEFT ROTATE RIGHT GIANT PLANETS Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are giant-sized worlds that orbit the Sun far beyond Earth. They are ice-cold planets, each with a system of rings around it and a large family of moons. When we look at these giants, we see layers of clouds in a deep gas atmosphere that merges into liquid underneath.

It moves out from the site of the explosion and away from the leftover core and spreads out slowly into space. The material in the Vela supernova remnant, shown here, is from a star that exploded about 11,000 years ago. The star’s core became a pulsar which spins around 11 times a second. 4 BLACK HOLE A supernova core made of more than about three times the mass of the Sun doesn’t stop collapsing at the neutron star stage. It continues to collapse, becoming denser and smaller until it is a hole in space—a black hole.

The four formed at the same time and from the same material, but they are very different worlds today. Earth has liquid water and life, Venus’s volcanic surface is hidden by clouds, red Mars has ice-cold deserts, and Mercury has an ancient, cratered surface. 1 A thick and unbroken layer of clouds surrounds Venus. The clouds are made of sulphuric acid droplets and hang within a carbondioxide rich atmosphere. The atmosphere traps in heat, like glass in a greenhouse. The surface temperature is constantly about 867°F (464°C); it hardly varies from day to night, and no matter where you are on the planet.
