Discover! Astronomy Series - 3 Volumes

Volume 1: Astronomy and the Universe™

How the universe came to be and evolved. Star formation and the life cycle of stars. What the universe is made of: space, energy and matter. How astronomers learn about the universe. Kepler’s and Newton’s laws of motion. The nature of matter and energy.

Volume 2: Earth and the Inner Solar System™

See the sun as a star within an environment that includes a family of planets. Sterile Mercury, baked Venus, spaceship Earth (and its blasted moon) and frigid Mars. Earth-based studies and robotic missions to the inner planets reveal clouds, craters, volcanoes and features unique to each planet.

Volume 3: The Outer Solar System™

See the gas giants from the point of view of a space probe. Tour the different atmospheres, ring systems and moons of the outer planets. Compare Pluto to the Jovian worlds, comets and asteroids. Consider impact craters and make your own; see what it’s really like in the far reaches of the solar neighborhood.
