Planetfall: New Solar System Visions

Written by Michael Benson

This large-format photography book gives you a fascinating, and breath-taking, look at Earth as seen from space, the flares of the Sun, the cratered surface of our moon, the red, sandy dunes of Mars, the rings of Saturn, and much, much more. Author Michael Benson has taken images and data collected from NASA and European Space Agency missions and created beautiful images of other worlds. I don't know if I'd be tempted to visit any of these places in person, should it become possible someday, but I did enjoy taking an arm-chair trip through space, thanks to this book.
