For this evening's Planetary Radio Live event, Mat Kaplan asked me to do a presentation of some favorite space images. I told him that picking favorite space images is like picking favorite children; it's not possible because they're all my favorite. To narrow things down, I decided to explore a theme. In my big space images library I have a special tag that I use for when a photo contains more than one planetary body: "Many Worlds." You can view all the images in the library that have the Many Worlds tag; below is the list of photos I showed in my talk.
