About this Playlist

Our Galaxy: The Milky Way

The Milky Way galaxy contains the planet Earth, situated in a tight, yet vast, bundle of planets, stars, space debris, asteroids and more. And although we've yet to explore the entirety of our own solar system yet, researchers and explorers are constantly working on new ways to reach out to galaxies far beyond home.

Check out footage taken from within the Milky Way itself, along with expert interviews, cool facts and more here.
