Scientists continue to discover new planet-like objects, called dwarf planets, all the time!

Long ago, astronomers believed that the Earth was the center of the universe. But now we know that it is only a tiny part of the universe and that our solar system is just a tiny part of our galaxy. In 1957, space travel began. Work done in space has helped us in the areas of medicine, computer science, and the environment. The International Space Station, a lab floating in space, is where astronauts do experiments that help us on Earth. The next manned trip to the moon is planned for 2018.
