Abstract

The planets of our solar system have been known for a long time. Our closest neighbors, like Venus and Mars, can be seen with the naked eye on a clear night. Ancient civilizations knew them, and it is no wonder they carry the name of gods. The ones further away, such as Neptune and Uranus, the ice giants at the outer etches of our solar system, have been an inspiration for scientists and artists alike, throughout the centuries.
