We begin with an overview of the formation of the solar system and then travel from its center, the Sun, to its outer edge. We explore each of our eight planets and their moons, asteroids, and comets, as well as essential concepts including solar winds, how planets move, and gravitational dead zones. Every heavenly body is introduced with a gorgeous, full-page image and its key data including orbital data, physical data, and atmospheric composition. Award-winning author and former CalTech radio astronomer Marcus Chown explains everything in his easy-to-understand, exciting style.
