The Story of the Solar System
One of our favorite projects for our sister company, XplorePaks, The Story of the Solar System gave us another opportunity to show off our illustration skills.
The bodies of our Solar System have orbited continuously around the Sun since their formation. But they have not always been there, and conditions have not been as they are today. The Story of the Solar System explains how our Solar System came into existence, how it has evolved and how it might end billions of years from now. This sequence illustrates the birth of the Sun, and then explains the steps that built up the bodies of the Solar System including planets, moons, asteroids, and comets.
We felt the use of vivid illustrations was imperative to help take students through this amazing timeline. The illustration sequence has been used throughout the United States to supplement course materials that are out of date, inaccurate, or just poorly executed.
