About This Item: 
- The ultimate insider's guide to Space- Features interesting and unusual places not found in traditional travel guides- Part of the international 111 Places/111 Shops series with over 250 titles and 1.5 million copies in print worldwide- Appeals to everyone on Earth who dreams of boarding a rocket to the stars, planets, exoplanets, nebulae, and beyond, including scientists, sci-fi aficionados, and Trekkies- Fully illustrated with 111 full-page photographsSpace is full of places you simply cannot miss! Our own solar system is full of wonders that dwarf anything here on Earth. On Mars, you can hike up a volcano 60, 000 feet high, or explore a canyon so vast, it would stretch from New York to Los Angeles. Prefer a beach holiday? In the moons of Saturn, you can swim in warm saltwater oceans under a layer of ice, or explore black sand beaches around liquid methane lakes on Titan. For the more adventurous, fly close (but to too close) to a giant black hole in the middle of our galaxy that has swallowed millions of stars. Watch hundreds of newly-born stars light up clouds of gas trillions of miles across, or search for the origins of life - including yourself - in the debris of giant stars that exploded violently billions of years ago. Like any trip worth taking, a journey through the universe will show you wonders you never imagined, and leave you with more questions than when you started.
