About this item

A guided tour through the universe--and beyond!

From the sun's super-hot core to the many moons of Neptune, we're traveling to the far reaches of our solar system and beyond!

  • After being in space, some astronauts returned to Earth up to 2 inches taller than when they left.
  • The stars in the Big Dipper are shifting among themselves and will look like a "Big Spatula" by the year 75,000.
  • And more!
Packed with fascinating information, it's a stellar read for sci-fi fans and at-home astronomers alike!
