The Last Frontier: The Rest!
hard to believe, but this is the last edition of The Last Frontier! I

about where it came from, including the idea that it may have been
a small planet that somehow exploded.
The Milky Way:
The Milky Way is the galaxy of stars that our solar system is in. Here
is a very clear picture of the Milky Way, taken by the COBE satellite:
