The enormous facts about our solar system can make your head spin! You hear about huge distances (like the 483 million miles separating the sun and Jupiter), huge timelines (it’s been 14 billion years since the big bang), and even huger mysteries (why the universe is expanding).
How can all these big numbers and concepts make more sense? Infographics! The charts, maps, and illustrations in this book tell a visual story to help you better understand key concepts about our solar system. Crack open this book to explore mind-boggling questions such as:
• How long would it take a beam of light to cross the universe?

• Does alien life reside somewhere in our galaxy?
The answers are sure to be out of this world!
