"Prologue Scene 2 Our Solar System
Millions and billions and trillions of years ago - more or less - the astronomers tell us our Solar System was formed - our sun and its nine planets which broke away from the sun and began to circle around the sun each in its own orbit - some were large and some were small and some medium - our earth is not the largest nor is it the smallest but it is a very fine earth planet because that is where we live on our earth.
Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto."
