Carina Eta furiously explodes in a tsunami of unparalleled violence! The blue star is 150 times the size of the sun. The explosion easily melts a terrestrial planet in its wake. An unlucky moon also glows white hot as it meets its fate. A Space Bird observing from 800 million miles away has no chance of escape! The stellar explosion will occur in about a thousand years.

Pilgrims come from all over the Milky Way to walk The Path on Submin VII. Tropical vegetation blooms under a rare golden sun on this rich world.
The road is 25,000 miles long and encircles the globe. The path begins nowhere and ends nowhere.
It simply is.
Pilgrims believe anyone that dies on this blessed world goes to paradise. The planet is towards the center of the galaxy.
This beautiful little world has very low gravity and the hills rise at a sharp angle. A white-dwarf sun is reflected in a pool of frozen ammonia. The atmosphere is almost gone.
There is still life here! The hills glow from a blue, fluorescent algae. Nimbus VII is located at the edge of our galaxy.

Michellina II is a very isolated planet about 300 million light years from Earth. The lonely planet's sun was ejected from the Andromeda Galaxy eons ago and the solar system drifts in intergalactic space. No stars show in its desolate skies. Two moons grace its riparian lanscape.
