As well as covering the Sun, the planets, hundreds of moons and thousands of asteroids and comets, The Planets includes all the major Solar System missions, right up to the latest Mars rovers.

Timelines explore our relationship with each planet and infographics present fascinating Solar System facts and planet facts.
