Based on the popular BBC2 series of the same name, "Wonders of the Solar System "takes readers on a journey of discovery, transforming alien worlds from their imaginations into places they can see, feel, and visit. From the giant ice fountains of Enceladus to the liquid methane seas of Titan, and from storms twice the size of the Earth to the tortured moon of Io with its giant super-volcanoes, this exhilarating book presents the Solar System as readers have never seen it before. With a clear, authoritative, yet down-to-earth approach, the authors explore how these previously unseen phenomena have dramatically expanded mankind's horizons with new discoveries about the planets, their moons, and how they came to be the way they are. "Basado en la serie popular del mismo nombre de la BBC, "Maravillas del Sistema Solar" lleva al lector por un viaje de descubrimiento, transformando mundos ajenos de su imaginacion en lugares que puede ver, sentir y visitar. Desde los descomunales surtidores de hielo de Encelado hasta los mares de metano liquido de Titan, y desde tormentas que duplican el tamano de la Tierra hasta la vapuleada luna Io con sus supervolcanes gigantescos, este estimulante libro le presenta el Sistema Solar al lector como nunca lo habia visto previamente. Con un tono claro, autorizado pero pragmatico, los autores exploran como estos fenomenos, no observados con anterioridad, han ampliado los horizontes de la humanidad con descubrimientos sobre los planetas, sus satelites y como llegaron a ser como son."
