Praise

“This second edition of what’s now become a classic off-Earth atlas runs the gamut from constellation star guides to annotated planetary maps based on the latest wave of space missions (including Messenger’s voyage to Mercury and New Horizons’ flyby of Pluto). Because it’s a National Geographic production, there are lots of magazine-quality photos and sumptuous graphics.” –GeekWire

“Full of charts, maps, and stunning photographs, the Space Atlas is a deeply informative and beautiful book…Anything notable in space gets a proper treatment in this book and the depth of information is incredible, all while remaining accessible and easy to understand.” –Boingboing.net

“National Geographic’s Space Atlas combines updated maps, lavish photographs, and elegant illustrations to chart the solar system, the universe, and beyond…For this new edition, and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his moonwalk, astronaut and American hero Buzz Aldrin offers a new special section on Earth’s Moon and its essential role in space exploration past and future.”
–Leonarddavid.com

“Not only did I thoroughly enjoy reading Buzz Aldrin’s forward, I really loved losing a sense of time and space staring at the nearly sparkling images of nebulae in the book.” –Scirens.com 

“Author James Trefil educates us and pushes the limits of the reader’s imagination. You will love this book!” -EDN Network

“This new edition captures the latest discoveries and describes what they will mean to our future with beautiful images and perspectives that make this an essential book to have – on paper – in your home.” -SciFi Generation
