Editorial Reviews

As you turn through the pages, you're hit with true moments of awe, photos that remind you the power of nature extends beyond our own planet." - Houston Chronicle "Nirmala Nataraj returns with another gorgeous photographic tour of space, this time featuring 200 sharp photos of planets, moons, and comets in our solar system, collected from over 40 years' worth of material housed in NASA's archives? . The collection is a remarkable reminder of how much has been learned about the planets over the past few decades, solving many mysteries yet introducing many more." - Publishers Weekly "Breathtaking pictures show the otherworldly magic of the solar system in The Planets, a heavy and handsome book made up of stunning photographs from the archives of NASA, each with a substantial caption by science writer Nirmala Nataraj. The images are at once humbling and uplifting: Here in the black void of space is Saturn's frozen moon, Mimas, white and pitted like a galactic golf ball; here is the tiny golden orb called Io, casting a shadow in a perfect inky circle on the marbled surface of Jupiter; here is the great sun, flames spurting from its surface like plumes."- Wall Street Journal "
