Sun|trek a quick tour


Sun|trek follows a journey to learn more about the Sun, our star. The journey starts at the central core of the Sun and takes us to the far reaches of the solar system.

The journey is easy to follow because the menu options will tell the story step by step. By the end of your journey we hope you'll be able to see how it all fits together.
