Universe Summary

Universe by Nicolas Cheetham

Travel through the Universe at the speed of light and explore its 200 most remarkable sights. An original and timely journey into space. With almost daily news reports on freshly discovered planets and galaxies; the drama of the Beagle, Cassini and Discovery missions; and plans for yet more probes and missions to the Moon and Mars, the subject of Space is at its most topical in decades. Simply and beautifully designed - a great gift. Better and newer images than any other current book on space. Contents include: A Journey at the Speed of Light - An Introduction; Journey's Beginning - The Solar System; Through Our Galaxy; Into the Magellanic Clouds; Intergalactic Travel; Journey's End - At the Edge of the Universe.
