Description: This article takes you back to our solar system. Over the years our solar system has changed. This article gives you up to date imformation about whats happening in our current day solar system.

Summary: The Solar System isn’t what it used to be. No, the Solar System hasn’t changed all that much, but our understanding of it certainly has. Dramatically. In the past fifty years, we’ve learned that Mars has water; Jupiter’s moon Europa has lots of water – an ocean, in fact; Neptune had a big blue spot, much like Jupiter’s red one… and then it didn’t; and Pluto, planet or not, isn’t alone out there. We’ve also learned, and only in just the last couple of years, that there are planets around other stars, forming stellar systems all their own.

Excerpt: It is likely that in the 4.5 billion year history of the Solar System, we’ve come close enough to other star systems for us to share members of our Oort Cloud with theirs. Yes, some of the objects now circling our star might actually have originated elsewhere – from around a star now long-gone on its own trek around the Milky Way.
