Billed as an “unparalleled visual discovery of our solar system,” The Grand Tour: A Traveler’s Guide to the Solar System (Third Edition) doesn’t disappoint. It features a visually captivating mix of photographs and hypothetical paintings as it leads readers on a fascinating expedition to the major worlds (planets and selected large moons) and smaller worlds (lesser moons, select asteroids, and comets) of our solar system.
First published in 1981, this third edition has been updated to include information and discoveries from Voyager I and II, Magellan, Galileo, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Mars Global Surveyor Mission. It is a well-written, engaging read for the layman that is never dry or overly technical.
