Experience the cosmos as never before with UNIVERSE: The Solar System and Beyond
Beginning with a fascinating overview and then organized by planet, 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, and even an in-depth exploration of asteroids and comets.
With this newly revised edition, the authors’ goals are to help you use astronomy to understand science–and use science to understand what we are. Fascinating, engaging, and visually vibrant, this text will help you answer two fundamental questions: What are we? And how do we know?
Three ever widening domains are presented–Earth, our solar system, and the large scale universe itself–each including the ones before it and extending outward.
