TitleSolar system : a visual exploration of the planets, moons, and other heavenly bodies that orbit our sun / written by, Marcus Chown
Imprint New York : Faber and Faber, c2011
Descript 224 p. : ill. ; 26 cm


SOLAR SYSTEM is something completely new under the sun. Never before have the wonders of our solar system - its planets, dwarf planets, the sun, moons, rocky Asteroid Belt, and icy Kuiper Belt - been so immediately accessible to readers of all ages. Beginning with a fascinating overview and then organized by planet, in order of its distance from the sun, this book takes us on a trip across time and space that includes a front-row seat to the explosive birth of the solar system, a journey to (and then deep inside) each of its eight planets, as well as an in-depth exploration of asteroids and comets. With hundreds of gorgeous images provided by NASA and the graphics experts, this book gives us page after page of unique, detailed, and never-before-seen views both photographic and computer-generated. -- From front flap
