Few challengers remain for Earth -bound adventurers, but do not fear- the Solar System abounds with weird and wonderful places to explore.
Let astronomer Paul Hodge take you on an imaginary tour of the most spectacular sites in the Solar System. With his informal writing style and over 100 amazing full colour illustrations, including close-ups of planetary features, you will have your breath taken away, without even leaving your home.
- Climb Mars' Mt. Olympus, much higher than Everest, or climb Venus' precipitous and scorching Mt. Maxwell.
- Explore the Moon's Alpine Valley, or a table mountain on Io.
- Brave the snows of Saturn's rings and Miranda's incredibly high, icy cliff.
- Descend a fabulous canyon on Mars, dwarfing the Earth's Grand Canyon.
And who knows -one day these adventures may really take place!
