Space is a really big place. The Earth, the Sun, and all the other planets live in a relatively quiet corner of an average sized Galaxy in a pretty nice cosmic neighborhood. There is plenty of space, lush nebulae and families of stars that pretty much keep to themselves. It's a great place to be.

Let's Go Exploring

While we can't yet warp to other planets to get a close-up look, we have learned a lot about our place in the universe. Robotic probes, powerful telescopes, and human ingenuity have given us the ambition to not only ask questions, but also get answers about our place in the cosmos.

This book is simple guide to the Universe. It doesn't explain everything, but it does cover some of the more intriguing spectacles and wonders. It's data that we have discovered in our search to understand where we fit into the universe.

It's Only An Hour Away By Car

Join us in taking a quick adventure around our cosmic block. We'll learn about some of the wonderful sights to see 'Out There.' Grab your 'Small Guide to a Big Universe' and let's get started!
