You have discovered a new planet. What is it like? What will you call it? Peter Dixon, poet and writer, provides some fun ideas to inspire your young space scientists.

Space Story is a crazy tale – impossible, pure fantasy – but it has a sensible backbone. The facts about the planets are true; Marcus talks about things that are true. He also talks about things that are utterly impossible. The story is a mix, as is HG Wells’ War of the Worlds and many other sci-fi and fantasy stories.
