Since the dawn of the Space Age in 1957, space probes have discovered exotic space environments, giant ice volcanoes, planet-wide dust storms, as well as more mysteries such as impossibly complex ring systems and planets hot enough to melt lead. Each title in Exploring our Solar System pulls young readers in with a question-and-answer format and provides a wealth of information, with state-of-the-art photos from research organizations, plus graphics that explain many difficult concepts.
