Paxi – The Solar System


Join Paxi on a journey through our Solar System, from the rocky inner planets close to the Sun, past the giant planets to the freezing edge, the home of comets.

In this video, targeted at children between 6 and 12, Paxi takes us on a tour of our Solar System, visiting all eight planets and other minor bodies such as asteroids, comets and the dwarf planet Pluto.

This video is the second of a series of animations in which Paxi, ESA?s Education mascot, touches on different aspects of the Solar System, the Universe, the secrets of planet Earth, and much more.

  1. I find that Paxi is cute and my Reception Class loves these animations. Keep up the great work ESA KIDS!??????????. Only one thing.., It would have been nice to say something about Uranus (spinning on its side), Neptune (gassy, stinky) and the dwarf planets. Maybe something to add???
