Celery takes the kids out into space and shows them how the Sun looks huge, or small like other stars, depending on your perspective. Curriculum: The sun is a star. Our sun is a star in the Milky Way galaxy, a yellow dwarf. The Propulsion family comes from another star in our galaxy: Bortron, a smaller, cooler red dwarf star.
