Nine planets and countless other objects revolving around our Sun make up the solar system As astronomers discover more about these heavenly bodies, including our own planet, Earth, they are also finding further mysteries and extraordinary space puzzles.

I can't believe this book was published! It claims that our solar system has over 60 moons when Jupiter alone has 62 known moons. It claims Jupiter has 16! It also says that Jupiter takes 10 days to turn, when it actually takes less then 10 hours to make a full rotation. I was very disappointed in this book! It has more wrong information then right

Being a person who has never really studied astronomoy I find this book outstanding & riveting. It expands my knowledge of the universe and all of it's mysteries. I don't know where or how one manages to get all of this information & to be perfectly honest my mind can't comprehend the data presented, because it seems to go beyond measurement. I highly recommend reading it.
