Book Description

People have always been filled with wonder when staring at a starry sky. From the planets that join Earth in rotating around our life-giving sun to the distant stars and galaxies, these celestial bodies have intrigued the human imagination. Promising limitless opportunity for exploration and endless fuel for scientific inquiry, space offers new frontiers that demand to be discovered. As these absorbing volumes demonstrate, understanding the foundations of our world and the universe it inhabits begins by examining the elements of our own solar system—the Sun, planets, moons, and other bodies whose relationships with each other reveal much about the cosmic origins of all matter.
