Visit the most magnificent sights and spectacles outer space has to offer. From the celestial bodies that surround us and their incredible characteristics, to the many moons, asteroids, comets, space stations and satellites that hover beyond the stratosphere, this epic tour leaves no question unanswered and no meteorite unturned.
Just how much would it cost to colonise Mars? What sort of Alien would live on Uranus? Could a terrestrial animal survive on the blistering-hot surface of Venus? What does the future of space travel have to offer and where are we going next? Dr Maggie's Grand Tour of the Solar System takes readers on the trip of a light-speed lifetime - from the proximity of the surface of our very own planet to the furthest sectors of the Solar System, including 90377 Sedna, an icy minor planet more than 13 billion kilometres away.
