This compelling visual journey through our galaxy combines more than 350 photographs, illustrations, and graphics to present the universe as you’ve never seen it before.

Visual Galaxy is a deep dive into the past, present, and future of our home galaxy, the Milky Way. In this mind-expanding visual tour through the cosmos, spectacular photographs are converted into interpretive graphics, starting with the sun and moving outward into space where stars are born, black holes lurk, and planets of diverse size and anatomy spin through their orbit. The final chapters locate our galaxy within the known universe and add a scintillating peek of other exoplanets in the cosmos. Detailed maps and fascinating imagery from recent space missions are paired with clear, authoritative scientific information.

CORE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TOPIC: Our readers rely on us for the best information on space science, and this book delivers.

DETAILED GRAPHICS AND STUNNING ARTWORK portray the planets, several planetary moons, and incredible objects lurking in the interstellar dust, interpreted with meticulous data and observations from NASA, NOAA, and other space agencies.

THREE FOLDOUT GATEFOLDS allow for expansive images and in-depth coverage.

NEW PHOTOS AND DATA from recent and ongoing missions such as Cassini-Huygens, Curiosity, New Horizons, Juno, Kepler, and Dawn.
