About this book

This stunning survey explores our own star system and its place in our galaxy and the universe itself. It offers in-depth coverage of all the planets, as well as the Sun, the Moon, asteroids, comets and meteoroids. The Solar System also looks further into the heavens, to examine black holes, other solar systems and distant galaxies, and speculates about the future of space travel.

Featuring 300 amazing photographs and detailed illustrations take you on whirlwind tour of the cosmos, while the text provides a wealth of essential information for young astronomers everywhere. An additional reference section contains fact charts, star maps, a glossary of terms and a detailed index. The planets and countless other objects revolving around our Sun make up the Solar System. As scientists discover more about these heavenly bodies, including our own planet, Earth, they are also finding further mysteries and extraordinary space puzzles.

Our Solar System is but one of billions in the vastness of our galaxy, the Milky Way, and the universe itself contains countless ever-changing galaxies. The Solar System covers them all, from the tiniest piece of space junk to vast nebulae, making it a fascinating home reference guide to our Solar System and beyond.
