111 Places in Space That You Must Not Miss (Paperback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Space is full of places you simply cannot miss! Our own solar system is full of wonders that dwarf anything here on Earth. On Mars, you can hike up a volcano 60,000 feet high, or explore a canyon so vast, it would stretch from New York to Los Angeles. Prefer a beach holiday? In the moons of Saturn, you can swim in warm saltwater oceans under a layer of ice, or explore black sand beaches around liquid methane lakes on Titan. For the more adventurous, fly close (but to too close) to a giant black hole in the middle of our galaxy that has swallowed millions of stars. Watch hundreds of newly-born stars light up clouds of gas trillions of miles across, or search for the origins of life - including yourself - in the debris of giant stars that exploded violently billions of years ago. Like any trip worth taking, a journey through the universe will show you wonders you never imagined, and leave you with more questions than when you started.
