05. Where's Our Place In Space?

Country Available: Canada

Bob MacDonald

Did you know that you live in a ‘suburb’ of the Milky Way Galaxy, our city of stars? Just as you might get lost in a big city at night, we climb up to a lookout and survey the entire city below. Then we look up at the stars and try to figure out our place in space. We learn that our Milky Way Galaxy is a stellar metropolis complete with downtown core, suburbs, and city limits. There are more stars in our galaxy than grains of sand on a beach, and to get a sense of how big our home is, we build a model of our solar system inside a giant domed baseball stadium. By the end of our story, you’ll feel very tiny, right at home in the Milky Way.
