Kepler 90, or the true garden of the Hesperides.

On Dec. 14, 2017, NASA and Google announced the discovery of the exoplanet Kepler-90i orbiting around Kepler-90 star of the Draco constellation. This discovery is unique because it was the 8th planet to be discovered in the system, making it similar to our solar system.
This photographic project is actually an imaginary exoplanetary report based on scientific facts and pseudo-scientific evidences, revealing the nature of the exoplanet. Various assumptions and hypotheses on the exoplanetary eco-system are examined and possible (and/or impossible) alien flora, fauna and mineralia are presented.
