Visual Galaxy

The Ultimate Guide to the Milky Way and Beyond

This compelling visual journey through our galaxy combines more than
350 photographs, illustrations, and graphics to present the universe
as you've never seen it before.


Galaxia is a deep dive into the past, present, and future of our home galaxy,
the Milky Way. In this mind-expanding visual tour through the cosmos,
spectacular photographs are converted into interpretive graphics, starting with
the sun and moving outward into space where stars are born, black holes lurk,
and planets of diverse size and anatomy spin through their orbit. The final
chapters locate our galaxy within the known universe and add a scintillating
peek of other exoplanets in the cosmos. Detailed maps and fascinating imagery
from recent space missions are paired with clear, authoritative scientific
information.

National Geographic cartographers create award-winning maps using state-of-the-art software for cartography and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The results are clear, detailed maps that make map reading fun and informative.
