Solar System

Return to



This page represents an extension of the "Cosmic Secrets 2" page of this website. The purpose of this page is to expand upon the notion of humans, one day, "leaving planet Earth" to establish additional homes on other heavenly bodies on a permanent, full-time basis. Space awaits the arrival of humans.

It is important to remember that, at the present point in time, Earth remains the only habitable home for human beings. It is equally important for humans to make Earth the best possible home on which to live. The survival of humankind depends on them not losing sight of these two important things.

This page contains minimal discussion. The Solar System illustration, videos, and songs referenced below speak for themselves.
