Make Over a Planet

Extreme Planet Makeover lets visitors create new worlds, instantly, online. The website—a collaboration between NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab and Caltech—lets you adjust your planet's size and age, its distance from the sun, and the kind of star that sun is. You can make gas giants or tiny, Pluto-like rocks, or aim for the sweet spots in between. When you're done, visit the Planet Gallery and stack your world up against other planets in our own solar system—or a few that lie far beyond it.

Create and take a screen grab of your own planet. Then write an article about this website. Remember to answer the five W's of a good story: who, what, when, where, and why. Then, tell Herald readers how your planet compares to those in our solar system/
