Summary

Take your seats for an out-of-this-word tour through the Cosmos!
Brian May, Patrick Moore, and Chris Lintott—authors of Bang!—fly us from Earth to the farthest-out galaxies. Along the way, we stop and gaze at 100 amazing sights, from asteroids to zodiacal dust. And each of our three tour guides has a special expertise and passion that they bring to their very personal explanations of what we see: Patrick is a lunar specialist; Brian is the leading authority on dust in our solar system, and Chris researches the formation of stars and galaxies. Extraordinary images present the universe as seen through the eyes of the biggest and best telescopes on Earth and in space, and occasionally from the backyards of expert amateur observers.
Reissue of THE COSMIC TOURIST.
