Mars

Mars

About half the size of Earth, Mars is a cold, rocky, dusty, planet with a thin atmosphere and temperature highs of 20ºC (68ºF). Affectionately coined ‘The Red Planet’, Mars was named by the Romans after their god of war, as its reddish colour is reminiscent of blood. Thanks to its proximity to Earth, Mars is one of the most explored planets in our solar system. Its surface conditions and the past presence of water make it arguably the most hospitable planet after our own. Could Mars be our new home in the future?

Saturn

Saturn

The farthest planet from Earth discovered by the unaided human eye, Saturn has been known since ancient times and is named for the Roman god of agriculture and wealth. Recognised for its rings, made of chunks of ice, Saturn has no surface to speak of. Rather, it is mostly swirling gases and liquids, inhospitable to human life and the spacecrafts trying to fly into the planet. For its many moons, however, the story could be different. Could life exist on Titan, whose terrain resembles that of Earth?

Neptune

Neptune

It’s impossible to view Neptune with the naked human eye. More than 30 times as far from the Sun as Earth, its orbit takes a massive 165 years to complete, experiencing seasons lasting 40 years at a time. 80-90% of Neptune is made up of a hot dense fluid of “ices”, making it one of two ice giants in the solar system alongside Uranus. While not as impressive as Saturn’s, Neptune is the proud owner of its own planetary ring system, made up of ice particles coated with silicates or carbon-based material.
