Summary, etc.:
"Packed with real science and fueled by imagination, a beautifully illustrated guide to traveling in our solar system. Imagine taking a hike along the windswept red plains of Mars to dig for signsof life, or touring one of Jupiter's sixty-four moons where you can photograph its swirling storms. For a shorter trip on a tight budget, the Moon is quite majestic and very quiet if you can make it during the off-season. With four-color illustrations and packed with real-world science, The Vacation Guideto the Solar System is the must-have planning guide for the curious spaceadventurer, covering all of the essentials for your next voyage, how to get there,and what to do when you arrive. Written by an astronomer from The AmericanMuseum of Natural History and one of the creators of the Guerilla Sciencecollective, this tongue-in-cheek reference guide is an imaginative exploration intothe "What if" of space travel, sharing fascinating facts about space, theplanets in our solar system, and even some moons!"-- Provided by publisher.
