Vacation Guide to the Solar System
Vacation Guide to the Solar System: Science for the Savvy Space Traveler! | Olivia Koski, Jana Grcevich
13 posts | 5 read | 4 to read
Packed with real science and fueled by imagination, a beautifully illustrated guide to traveling in our solar system Imagine taking a hike along the windswept red plains of Mars to dig for signs of life, or touring one of Jupiter's sixty-four moons where you can photograph its swirling storms. For a shorter trip on a tight budget, the Moon is quite majestic and very quiet if you can make it during the off-season. Packed with full color illustrations and real-world science, Vacation Guide to the Solar System is the must-have planning guide for the curious space adventurer, covering all of the essentials for your next voyage, how to get there, and what to do when you arrive. Perfect for fans of Neil deGrasse Tyson's Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, this tongue-in-cheek reference guide is an imaginative exploration into the What if of space travel, sharing fascinating facts about space, the planets in our solar system, and even some moons!

🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀 This was a really fun book. There are a lot of facts about the planets and moons in our solar system and it's conveyed in an entraining way; as though these places were actually holiday locations. Very imaginative and informative.

Great artwork and concept but the writing gets a bit stale after a while. Worth picking up for the artwork alone.
