Looking at all of the planets and moons of the Solar System, there are similarities with the Earth – volcanoes here, liquid erosion there, fault lines somewhere else. But it is the diversity that is most striking and most wonderful. Each body has its own very unique story to tell. Learning to read those stories is a great adventure, and by increasing our understanding of other moons and planets, we come to know the Earth better.
