From website: Since the beginning of our history, humans have looked up at the sky and marveled at what they saw. The changing face of the Moon, the brilliance of the Sun, the movement of the planets, all of these and more awed our ancestors. In an attempt to understand, they created stories and prescribed meanings to the objects that filled the sky. Some also created elaborate models to reproduce the motion of objects in the heavens. Today, scientists understand more about these celestial bodies. Some are unbelievably large, while others are smaller than a particle of dust. In this book, we will be exploring \201Csmall bodies\201D found in our solar system. Our solar system consists of one star, the Sun, and all the objects currently held in orbit by the gravity of our star. The solar system is just one part of a much, much larger group of stars that form the Milky Way Galaxy.
