Featuring the extensive range of matter contained in the cosmos, the book navigates an unfamiliar world and celebrates the beauty and boundless mysteries of planet Earth and the universe. These beautiful photographs are presented in sequence according to scale and distance within distant chapters, and are accompanied by extended captions.
