Cycle the Solar System is a 4.5km cycle ride along the Panjim city coast road, in order to explore our solar system at a scale of 1:1,000,000,000. There will be an expert-guided tour of the planets (represented by flags and fruits) along the way. During this tour, participants will explore the very different sizes and environments of the Sun, eight planets and asteroid belt; see the scale of the planets in the context of the urban environment; gain a better understanding of their nearby neighbourhood in space; and discuss the politics and philosophy of space travel– for instance, a discussion on the ethics of spending money on national and international space programmes when there are high levels of poverty in the world.
