In recent years the Hubble Space Telescope has provided images of extraordinary clarity and detail which have revolutionized the way in which scientists and incidental stargazers alike perceive the universe.

Other space probes, such as Galileo and the Mars Surveyor, have also produced photographic detail once unimaginable. A selection of such space imagery, accompanied by descriptive background text, is presented in this book, which offers a wealth of colour pictures of crater farms on Venus, Saturn's spectacular rings, Jupiter and its many moons, the swirling tail of the Hale-Bopp comet, dramatic sun-flares, Mars, Neptune, icy cosmic debris, and other wonders of the solar system.
