Congratulations. You have received a $500,000 research grant from NASA to explore the Solar System!

You can rocket through the Solar System (using the arrow keys on your keyboard). As you pass a planet or other object, you must explore it and report your new knowledge.

Each landing will cost you some money, but if you answer the question you find there well you can earn more than it costs. Try to visit all 12 places and end up rich -- rich in new knowledge and in more research funds. Good luck!
