Space Atlas

Mapping the Universe and Beyond

Combining the cartographic power of National Geographic and the breathtaking imagery of Hubble, Space Atlas is a one-stop guide to the planets in the solar system and the outer reaches of the known universe, using the most up-to-date information and the latest imagery and mapping technology. From maps of the moon to diagrams of multiple universes based on the newest ideas in string theory--this volume takes the concept of an atlas and blasts it into
outer space! With spectacularly colorful and awe-inspiring imagery from all the exciting space telescopes and probes, together with meticulously drafted and labeled maps of nearby planets and even some of their moons, Space Atlas is a wonder to behold and a volume to treasure. Prolific author James Trefil, an endowed professor of physics and veteran writer of science books, guides us through our solar system, then our Milky Way galaxy, and out beyond, at each stage offering pictures, maps, and diagrams, many conveying the newest information about the universe, never-before-presented in an atlas.
