He looks at the light pollution on Earth, where is best to go for star gazing and defines the biggest moons and smallest planets. Find out which planet has a giant Grand Canyon and the biggest volcanoes in the solar system. How many years until we'll get the first photos of Pluto? Get the latest science on where water has been found and where we might look next for signs of life. Understand the conditions needed for the next big growth in star births. Jonti also shows some amazing photographs from space missions. Jonti is a Research Fellow in Astronomy at The Open University.
