There is no safer place in the universe than your home. No one wanted to be homeless and yet everyone is aiming to have the most comfortable spot to live peacefully. Most of us are dreaming to reach the places written on our bucket list. Some are not contented to stay permanently in one location because they want to explore everything that life could offer. While I am here, floating unendingly in the outer space and longing for my missing home. Until one day, I accidentally reached a little garden in the Milky Way galaxy, which is the solar system. Is the home that I’ve been searching for so long would be here?
I arrived first to the planet full of crates on its surface. Enjoy staying but it seems that the time here is very slow. I think I can completely tour myself for only three orbits it completes since this planet just small. A few moments later, I feel so thirsty and my sweat is running all over my body because of its temperature exceeding 800 degrees Fahrenheit upwards. I look up and saw that the star called the sun, is very near. Sadly, I cannot stay here for too long because of its strong magnetic field and it has no atmosphere then I decided to proceed to my next target planet.
As I roam around the night sky, I reached the planet with a very heavy atmosphere. I saw surrounding thick clouds of sulfuric acid that made me feel dizziness. Just like the first planet a while ago, the surface is hot and dry. I decided to walk around and search for something nice, I saw amazing mountains, canyons, volcanoes, and valleys. It looks good but I know that there is something more special that is waiting for me.
Guess what? I am here on the rust-colored planet. The surface here is made of basalt and andesite. The temperature is colder and sadly, I do not have a sweater. It also has mountains, volcanoes, and many impact craters, but what really amazed me are the two moons above. This planet has the potential to sustain life only if it will be developed. I can stay here but I want something more exciting.
For me, bigger places are perfect to have fun, not until I arrived in this gas giant. It is a ball of gas and there is no solid surface. It has four moons but there is nothing more on this planet to support life. I immediately go to the second largest planet but it is just the same because it also has no solid surface. It is covered with cloud layer belts of different colors, and it has seven flat rings.
A few moments later, blue-green clouds of frozen methane crystals caught my attention then I automatically move and go to that ice giant. I love oceans as I started to love this planet. The ocean cannot stand alone for it has no ability to provide other necessities that the only land can offer. I am starting to lose hope because I could not find a planet which is all in one. A planet that has the capacity to hold lovers of the universe.
I decided to go back near to the sun, I realized that I missed one planet. Before taking a step into it, I felt so much excitement because I think I found the right one. It has everything that anyone is dreaming to have. It may be mistakenly considered as the center of the solar system but I consider it the most precious gem of the universe. The home of all living organisms and my favorite travel destination among all.
