|Reviews||"Delve into the great beyond with these awe-inspiring photos from NASA's archive." -- Entertainment Weekly, "This glorious, pictorial tour of the universe opens with a foreword by everyone's favorite science guy, Bill Nye, who rightly reminds readers of the fragility of our planet. Following an introduction by the author, more than 100 photos gleaned from NASA's archives are showcased, beginning with photos depicting Earth from space (first captured by the Apollo program) and progressing through photos of the individual planets. Solar flares, nebulae, comet dust, satellite galaxies, and more are all here as well, in stunning color-enhanced images. Each picture is accompanied by a descriptive caption, offering information on the location of the phenomena, related planetary or interstellar history, and when and how the photo was taken." -- School Library Journal|

I purchased this book for my son's birthday present. I had recently read and viewed the amazing pictures at my local library. I was so awed by the book that I was moved to share the beauty and wonder with a like-minded person.
