Jasper read in a book that the planet Venus is beautiful to look at from a distance, but its atmosphere is very dangerous to us, and therefore exciting. For a moment he changed his mind and forgot planet X.

 

"Listen," he asked the Doctor. "Before we start on the more serious work, could we have a bit of fun with some interesting planets? I mean, you have so much material here, that we could find out something about planets too. Both scientific and interesting."

 

What objections could the Doctor have to that. "Tinker away and write down everything interesting that you can fine about each planet. And at the end decide which planet you think is the most exciting."
