    Hi Keaton,

    If I wanted to keep studying the Sun and could avoid burning up in the heat, Mercury would be an interesting place. You could see details from there you could not see as well from the Earth.

    As for the planets themselves, they are all pretty neat. Mars would probably be the easiest to actually live on, but I have always found Jupiter and its moons to be very interesting, so I might rather visit there.
