The Earth is a fascinating place of unbelievable wonder — and it’s the only home we’ve ever known. But our planet is just a small part of our universe, which is home to many other planets and moons and billions of stars. There’s much to learn about our place in this enormous system — and this book will teach you everything you want to know!
How far apart are the planets? How long is a light year? How many stars are in the Milky Way? Everything You Need to Know About the Universe answers these questions and many more. You’ll never visit Mars or Jupiter, but you’ll learn which is larger. You’ll never visit the Andromeda Galaxy, but you’ll learn how long it would take for it to collide with the Milky Way. Maps, charts, and illustrations in full color bring the entire universe to life.
Everything You Need to Know About the Universe is the perfect reference for anyone who wants to know more about our place in the massive, marvelous solar system.

Okay…For those of us who have forgotten much of what we learned in high school science class, this book is for you (us).
This book presents the bare fact about, well, everything you need to know about in simple, easy to understand language with simple yet elegant illustrations. If you want to learn the in depth intricacies of the nucleus of an atom, this book is not for you. However, if you want the basic facts about the sky, innovations, planets, stars, satellites, the sun, galaxies and the cosmos, this book is made for you.
Enjoy, and who knows…you may just learn a thing or two!
I give this book THREE STARS.
I received an Advance Uncorrected Proof from NetGalley.
