We live in an amazing planetary system. From the yawning Valles Marineris on Mars and the subsurface ocean hiding beneath the ice crust of Jupiter’s moon Europa, to the eerily Earth-like terrain of Saturn’s moon Titan, the solar system brims with wonders. And let’s not forget the Sun, with its mysteriously hot corona and solar flares. 

This book is a trip to the Solar System through marvelous illustrations accompanied by a comprehensive text that helps the reader understand the amazing variety of landscapes within our planetary system. The planetary images and data provided by scientific instruments have contributed to our understanding of how and why planets evolve. 


Breathtaking illustrations bring views of different worlds of our Solar System to life in this engaging and accessible book created in conjunction with ALMA, the largest astronomical project in the world.
