You have been carefully selected by the Prime Minister to participate in a secret mission.
Gladopia is in danger! A massive meteorite is heading straight for our tiny planet and we need to evacuate.
Fortunately Mr. Rudd's space exploration advisors have been made aware recently that Gladopia is not the only planet with life. Your mission is to find another planet suitable for the Gladopian people so that we can move before the meteorite strikes.
As a leading astronomer you need to research the newly discovered solar system which consists of eight planets and one dwarf planet. You need to find out as much information as you can. The Gladopian people and Mission Control await your return and the presentation of your findings.
