I have been reading in Astronomy magazine about the wonders of our solar system, like the landscape of the dwarf planet Ceres (in the October 2019 issue) and the possibilities of life on the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Every time we send out an interplanetary probe, we are surprised at what we find.
And yet, the landscape of our own planet can rival anything we find in this corner of the galaxy. National Geographic makes that point with a recent slide show, “See 10 of Earth’s Most Alien Landscapes.” If you don’t mind some ads, you can access the show at https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2019/08/see-10-of-earths-most-alien-landscapes/? ; if you have trouble advancing the slides try the alt-right arrow combination.
The natural world never ceases to amaze, especially on our home world.
