About this book

In Wonders of the Solar System -- the book of the acclaimed BBC TV series -- Brian Cox takes us on a journey of discovery where alien worlds become places we can see, feel and visit. In this series, Cox introduces us to the planets and moons beyond our world, finding the biggest, most bizarre, most powerful natural phenomena. Using the latest scientific imagery along with cutting edge CGI and some of the most spectacular and extreme locations on Earth, Cox shows Wonders never thought possible. Employing his trademark clear, authoritative, yet down-to-earth approach, Cox explores how these previously unseen phenomena have dramatically expanded our horizons with new discoveries about the planets, their moons and how they came to be the way they are.
