Universe: The Solar System and Beyond

Length: 44 minutes


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 and engaging, 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.
