So staggering you go "whoa!" every few seconds' Guardian

'Really impressive' Eamonn Holmes, ITV This Morning

A companion book to the critically acclaimed BBC series.
bestselling authors of Wonders of the Universe are back with another
blockbuster, a groundbreaking exploration of our Solar System as it has
never been seen before.

Mercury, a lifeless victim of the
Sun's expanding power. Venus, once thought to be lush and fertile, now
known to be trapped within a toxic and boiling atmosphere. Mars, the red
planet, doomed by the loss of its atmosphere. Jupiter, twice the size
of all the other planets combined, but insubstantial. Saturn, a stunning
celestial beauty, the jewel of our Solar System. Uranus, the sideways
planet and the first ice giant. Neptune, dark, cold and whipped by
supersonic winds. Pluto, the dwarf planet, a frozen rock.

Cohen and Professor Brian Cox take readers on a voyage of discovery,
from the fiery heart of our Solar System, to its mysterious outer
reaches. They touch on the latest discoveries that have expanded our
knowledge of the planets, their moons and how they come to be.
