Product Description:

Stunning photography and original art work take you on a tour of "space the final frontier." This tour will take you through the facts and fiction of space study.

This hardcover 190-page resource will take you from the Big Bang, through a tour of our solar system. It will also discuss space travel through the stars and neighboring galaxies, enter into speculation about alien life, and where we might be headed in the future of space study and travel. Along with the visual tour, you will read explanations and facts concerning space objects and interesting conjecture about the space we don't know. 192 pages, hc. ~ Donna
