“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to our final lecture for later today we will be landing on Gnaritus!” Pars announced to thunderous applause in the main cabin. “It will be useful to understand more about Gnaritus’ three suns for your daily lives. So, let me begin by summarizing the background information that we have already gone over near the beginning of this lecture series. The three suns of this solar system are stars, which contain mainly hydrogen gasses with a lesser amount of helium. Due to the intense force of gravity, the proximity of the hydrogen atoms in the center of these suns results in their nuclei fusing to form helium atoms. This nuclear fusion releases heat and sunlight that reaches Gnaritus and the other planets in this …show more content…
This plasma can escape the sun’s gravity becoming the solar wind that is continuously blowing through the solar system to Gnaritus and all the way out to the planet Spes. In fact, ninety-nine percent of the universe is plasma! Furthermore, dark sunspots occur on the surface of the suns in sections that are relatively cooler than the surrounding area. Solar storms can also rage on the surface consisting of massive solar flares and coronal mass ejections. Solar flares occur as flashes of bright light on the sun’s surface similar to millions of hydrogen bombs detonating at once. On the other hand, coronal mass ejections result when the magnetic field fractures, hurling billions of tons of plasma into space. Then, Gnaritus’ magnetic field guides the charged particles in the plasma to the polar caps, thereby producing the phenomenally colorful auroras. Auroras occur when the charged particles in the plasma excite the gasses in the planet’s upper atmosphere causing them to glow. Green is the predominant color, but just about every shade of red, yellow, blue, and purple can also occur. Since this solar system has three suns each with occasional solar storms, the aurorae at the polar caps of Gnaritus are on a grand scale far surpassing …show more content…
Meanwhile, Bob Pagett’s snapshots of the passengers on the observation deck captured for posterity all the hugs, handshakes, and euphoria on their arrival. Others like Surina, Gabriel, Rafaela, Alfonso, and Stefan stared in silent astonishment at Gnaritus, unable to move. The passengers’ elation in safely arriving at their new home planet knew no bounds. Each of them fully understood how they were personae non gratae in their old home, Earth. Regardless, at least Gnaritus provided them a
