Our Galaxy: The Milky Way

Excited for today's eclipse? Visit our Eclipse 2017 page to explore the science, history, and myths of the event. The Curiosity team will be viewing the eclipse alongside NASA in Carbondale, Illinois. Follow us on Facebook for live videos, trivia, and interviews today!

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.
