Mercury | Beyond the Stars
Come explore the amazing design in our Cosmos, starting with the planet Mercury. Though it is the smallest planet in our Solar System, Mercury is a planet of large extremes. With essentially no atmosphere, no water, the largest temperature variations, and the highest solar radiation levels, Mercury’s design was certainly not to be a nurturing home for humanity. However, Mercury offers an amazing perspective on how diverse the created Universe is.
Venus | Beyond the Stars
Come explore Earth’s nearest planetary neighbor, Venus. As the brightest object in our sky, after the Sun and Moon, the beauty of Venus has captivated humanity since Creation. Though sometimes called “Earth’s twin,” this planet’s design has drastic differences from Earth’s life-sustaining environment. Be astounded at the role this fiery planet plays in our Solar System.
Mars | Beyond the Stars
Come explore the Red Planet, Mars. Even without the aid of telescopes, Mars is easily seen and recognized in the sky by its reddish color. While Earth and Mars have many similarities, there are many drastic differences as well, including no liquid water on Mars’ surface and it having only a very tenuous atmosphere. While in many ways Mars has a less hostile environment than Mercury or Venus, it in no way is life-friendly or characteristic of a world intended for life and should make us appreciate our uniquely designed planet Earth.
Jupiter | Beyond the Stars
Come explore the King of the Solar System, Jupiter. Even when Jupiter is at its farthest distance from Earth (an impressive 600 million miles), its enormous size allows it to still be one of the brightest objects in the night sky. As such a bright object, Jupiter has a long history of being observed, but it wasn’t until the invention of the telescope that Jupiter’s true, stunning beauty and intriguing design became known. With its multitude of orbiting moons, the Jupiter system resembles a miniature Solar System. Yet the same physical laws that maintain Jupiter’s complex system, also govern the larger arrangement of our Solar System and ultimately the Cosmos as a whole.
Saturn | Beyond the Stars
Come explore the Ringed World, Saturn. As one of the most recognizable planets in the Solar System, Saturn and its ordered system of rings and moons reflects the design given by the Great Designer. Everything God created is meant to reflect His glory, and Saturn is no exception.
