From rivers that carve out canyons to tectonic plates that build mountains, our rocky planet Earth is always changing. In space, planets—with their own volcanoes and thunderstorms—whirl around the Sun. Earth and space scientists are dedicated to studying our solar system, from the moon of the distant dwarf planet Pluto to the very bottom of our oceans, not only to understand these things better but also to protect our planet and us.
