Editorial Reviews

 "Astronomers Stuart Lowe and Chris North really lift off in this graphic exploration of all things space. Their depictions of year-by-year spaceflights and space junk shock through sheer numbers, while their takes on interplanetary missions, moons in the Solar System and particularly the polarization of the Milky Way â?¬â? like a cosmic finger-painting in palest mauve â?¬â? deliver the facts with aesthetic brio."
