The aim of this last post is to essentially thank everyone for participating in our project. We set out, marking our distance through space, every step of the way throughout the year of 2011.

From the early stages of Aonach Mor, bringing you the first video blog from the team on location, to our first call to action for your iwtiness severe weather footage, during the February Scottish storm - several snow storms, tornadoes, monsoon events, tropical storms and aurora's later, we are very grateful for all the footage sent in to help us document Earth's extraordinary journey on this blog.

A selection of the footage can be viewed on the 'severe weather videos' page and remain available to flick through on our 'photography pool' and on the blog. We want to remind you that you can continue to send your up to date severe weather footage and astronomy photos to yourpics@bbc.co.uk where they may form part of future weather and astronomy stories across the BBC.

We also want to thank everyone who joined us on twitter at the beginning with #bbc23degrees and then later with #bbcorbit - the latter hashtag will remain available to you as archive.

For all the comments on the blog posts across the entire production, we thank you for sharing your opinions with us to create an informed series, and raising points worth consideration for future BBC Science projects.

This post as with the three episode posts will remain open for comments until the end of this week, after which commenting on the blog will be closed.

All that is left to say is, Goodbye, and remember that you're hurtling through space at over 100'000 kph.
