Mini-Movie Monday: Genesis Episode 2, Our Solar System (Synopsis)

“When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system.” -Kalpana Chawla

Two weeks ago, we released the first video in our web series: Genesis, the story of where all this comes from.

The video was on Organic Molecules, and while it hasn't exactly gone viral (yet), the like/dislike ratio is pretty hard to beat.

Well, it's time for Episode 2, on the topic of the Solar System. Head on over to Medium to watch the whole thing, along with an official transcript as well!

How do moons arise and what exactly defines a moon? How is it that moons end up "locked" in orbit to a planet, but many other masses remain as comets/asteroids and get kicked far away from the solar system (I.e. Kuiper belt)?

Geez, Ethan looks like a freak. It's hard to take someone who looks like that seriously.

Presentability matters.

It is the content that counts, not the container, cover, personal looks.

All the best for Xmas, whatever that means to you personally.
Thanks, Ethan.

Appearance matters."

If youre going to troll, the least you can do is troll in the proper grammatical person with less cumbersome wording.

'Presentability'. Good lord.
