Synopsis

Beyond A Solar System Voyage by Michael Benson

For everyone who's ever wondered what the solar system looks like up close, this definitive collection of space exploration will satisfy your curiosity and inspire your imagination. Since the 1960s, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has been sending unmanned satellites to explore the planets, moons and sun. These probes have amassed a stunning visual record of other worlds, revealing not one but scores of new frontiers, from rust-red Mars to the ethereal rings of Saturn. In Beyond , author Michael Benson has pulled together the most spectacular of these images into one volume that focuses on the awesome appearance of these celestial bodies as well as what the photos actually reveal about the place in simple language children will understand. The book includes a glossary and index.
