Let your imagination run wild as you create a whole new planet. You’ll meet experts, dream up science fiction stories and craft your very own world.

Create a whole new world. What does it look like? How wild is the weather? Do people live in busy cities, or in vast wilderness? Get inspired by experts and let your imagination run free. You’ll explore what planets are made from, how people can live in extreme environments, and dream up science fiction stories for your new planet.
