Solar System Odyssey

A futuristic adventure, exploring what could happen if humans consume all the resources of Earth.

Jack Larson embarks on a quest to discover a new home for humans to colonize, piloting his spacecraft on a wild ride through our Solar System. Along his journey, Jack encounters a traveling companion who helps him search for answers to these questions:

  • How are the worlds of our Solar System alike?
  • How are they different?
  • What must those worlds have in order for humans to live there?

Together, they speed through an exciting exploration of our cosmic neighborhood, including the icy rings of Saturn, Jupiter’s volcano-ridden moon Io and the sub-zero methane lakes of Saturn’s moon Titan.
