Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Over the past few years, the Hubble Space Telescope has provided us with images of astonishing clarity and detail, images that have revolutionized how scientists and incidental stargazers alike perceive our universe. Other space probes, such as Galileo and the recent Mars Surveyor, have similarly dazzled the world with photographic detail once unimaginable.

Empire of the Sun features a gallery of some of the most breathtaking space imagery ever assembled between two covers. Focusing on our solar system, the book offers dozens of dramatic, full page, full color images of crater farms on Venus, the spectacular rings of Saturn, Jupiter and its many moons, the swirling tail of the Hale-Bopp comet, spectacular sunflares, Mars, Neptune, icy cosmic debris, and more. Detailed text accompanies each image, providing background information and a roadmap to orient the reader.

John Gribbin and Simon Goodwin have collaborated on two previous illustrated volumes featuring Hubble images, both of which have been international bestsellers and have been translated into several languages.
