'Science' seems to be a dirty word in this country but this really puts the hairs up on the back of my neck, we can only fully understand Earth by studying its near (and far) neighbours, those lifeless spheres which share its orbit around the sun. No, really, I do get quite excited about this stuff. It's all rather fascinating, as Prof Brian Spock might say.
