Our place in the universe
What is the position of the Earth in the universe? What is its relationship with the Sun and Moon? This unit dictates the answers to these questions by drawing students closer to the Solar System and its components (planets, asteroids, satelites, comets) and by explaining how a diverse set of planets orbit around a single star, the Sun, due to the effects of gravity.
