This animation is designed to help middle and high school students conceptualize the enormous interplanetary distances in space. The introduction provides background information about the distances between planets and how long it would take modern spacecraft to travel between them. The animation, moving at a virtual 300 times the speed of light, takes students on a journey from the sun, through the nine planets, to just beyond Pluto. As each planet appears, it is labeled with its name and distance from the sun. Movie controls allow students to repeat, pause, or step through the animation, which can give students more time to analyze the images. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
