  • An Infographic trip through the wonders of the solar system.

    The solar system - well known from countless documentaries. 3D animation on black background. This infographic videos tries something different. Animated infographics and a focus on minimalistic design puts the information up front. We take the viewer on a trip through the solar system, visiting planets, asteroids and the sun.

    Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, the Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science.

                                    Uranus is smaller than Neptune in mass
                                    although Neptune is 49,224 km
                                    & Uranus is 50,724 km.

                                              There are plenty more effective pronunciations for Uranus, such as “Yer-uh-miss” or “Yur-ah-niss”

                                              I think we can develop starships and stuff like that way before the sun dies, which won’t happen for billions of years, lol

                                                Jupiter now has 79 moons,
                                                Saturn now has 63, Uranus still has 27, and Neptune now has 14 because of S/2004 N1.

                                                                                        Or here's another theory maybe the sun started out as a failed star if you will and compressed again into only hydrogen but the first time when it failed it made all the elements for the planets and went to hydrogen that or maybe a micro novid kinda or whatever you made the planets was left over in the center.

                                                                                      • Michael Elbert

                                                                                        I believe the elements that our solar system is made of was created in a supermassive star supernova and was kind of repealed buy another supernova and compressed it into a solar system but but how does only hydrogen and up in the center of the solar system unless it was already spinning end all the heavier elements ended up The sinner but it really doesn't make sense on how the sun was compressed into a star in the planets ended up so close and there's gas giants further away from the sun.
