Ok, crew! Your training is now over. You have studied the solar system in your elementary school science class. You have completed training at NASA, and now you are an official NASA astronaut ready to launch into outer space. Your mission:  to discover fascinating information about all of the planets of our solar system. For example, which planet spins backwards compared to the others? Which one is so light it could float in a bathtub if we could find one big enough? What would your age and weight be on Mars? I bet you think Pluto is the farthest planet from the sun...not always! Find out all of this crucial information and more about the planets and report back to mission control in Houston with all of your discoveries.  We here on earth are all counting on you...enjoy your mission...ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one...........Blastoff!!!!!!
