Top-notch book full of entertaining art in a great style. If I had kids, I'd buy it for them, but it's also great for adults. I don't think this has a min/max age, if you're interested in astronomy. I hope they do more books like this. Love it!

So excited to read this! The graphics look amazing and I love space books.

One of the best books I've seen for explaining concepts about space! The text is written by a scientist, the design is wonderful, and the graphic, detailed illustrations include many fascinating diagrams that help you visualize the size of the Earth in relation to Jupiter (the equivalent of a cherry tomato to a watermelon) and other incredible facts. There is even a series of illustrations of "outer space fashions", which show the function and design of space suits as they've developed over the years. Highly recommended for anyone, child or adult, who is interested in outer space and space exploration programs.
