Where are the small worlds?
English
Explore the view of our solar system from the perspective of the Sun and collect data on small worlds. Observe the motion of different worlds to determine their location in the solar system. Then launch probes to search these small worlds to find the hidden caches and collect the astrocoins inside. Can you find them all?

Deep in the hills of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia the Ediacara fauna appear in the rock record and evolve in three distinct steps. Then suddenly, just before the Cambrian Explosion, they universally disappear. Take the journey, and learn about what is known, what is uncertain, and the mysteries that remain.

3,000 years ago microbes started building up stromatolites in Shark Bay. These structures are the earliest signs of life on Earth, and are considered the longest continuing biological lineage. Shark Bay contains the most diverse and abundant examples of living stromatolites in the world.
