The 50 Most Extreme Places in Our Solar System

Solar System Extremes: A Look at the Wild and Wonderful Strangeness of Our Solar System

From moons made entire of ice to Dust Devils as tall as Mt. Everest, our Solar System is full of extreme places and phenomena that are remarkable, often strange, and sometimes downright wacky! Is Mercury really the "Incredible Shrinking Planet"? What does Jupiter's magnetic field have to do with the deepest ocean in the Solar System? Is Venus upside down? Come find out the answers to these an many other questions as we discuss the Solar System Extremes found in the new book "The 50 Most Extreme Places in Our Solar System"

"What's Up?" in this month will be presented by Jim Benet
