SolarTours, Your Tour across the Solar System.
SolarTours is the first travellers agency to the planets of our solar system. Everyone who wants to learn more about our solar system and everything attached to it, can visit SolarTours. The site provides its visitors with great amounts of information, explaining in simple terms, but nonetheless reaching even deeper and harder subjects.
The specifications of every planet and satellite of our solar system are given, along with their mythological background or name explanation and their most remarkable aspects. It also states when the planet was discovered, when the satellites and rings were discovered and the most important source of data.
The Sun is also discussed, telling how it was created and what will become of the fiery ball in the sky. Several types of stars are also discussed to put our Sun into perspective.
To complete the works on our solar system, the site also gives explainations on asteroids, meteors, comets and galaxies. All this to show there is much more in space than just our humble solar system.
To keep the attention of the visitors, the entire site is presented as real travellers agency. In order to make this seem real, SolarTours also offers potential travellers information about each planet, satellite, star type and other celestial body, allows visitors to send cards across the Internet, provides the option to sign a guestbook, calculates prizes of a booked trip online and keeps scores at the SolarTours Quiz.
