Imagine diving below the ice on one of Jupiter's moons to
look for signs of life, getting lost in a Venusian sulphuric
acid storm or trying to drill on the disintegrating surface
of a comet. Space Odyssey will reveal for the first time the
danger and spectacle of what it would be like for astronauts
to land on and explore the other planets in the solar system...
book of Space Odyssey: A Voyage to the Planets is designed
to accompany the TV series (which is also available on DVD).
enables viewers to witness firsthand what some of the most
extraordinary sights under the Sun, as seen through the eyes
of the astronauts, may look like. On their ten year voyage
to fly to the outer reaches of the solar system, the astronauts
rendezvous with an incoming comet - to study it before it
gets too close to the Sun - and visit our neighbouring planets
to carry out a series of fascinating but dangerous experiments.
is the legendary Grand Tour brought to life: a journey packed
with peril and excitement. Stunning CGs of the planet landscapes
are accompanied by engaging text that has been drawn from
all the latest scientific findings.
the TV series' main thrust (no pun intended) was that we would
be experiencing firsthand what it was like to travel to the
planets, how could a book hope to capture the same effect.
Put simply, it doesn't. Instead, it is seen more as an addition
to the TV series. This book includes numerous facts and figures
about our solar system. Each leg of the journey has numerous
diary entries by the astronauts on what they achieved from
each section of the journey - as well as their personal experiences
and expectations. This manages to add a much needed personal
touch - one that is usually missing in space documentaries.
book itself is a work of art. Beautiful full colour pages
attempt to capture the beauty and vastness of space and there
are plenty of additional images of the crew which are exclusive
to this book.
is the perfect release for everyone who enjoyed the series,
but would like a few more facts to hand.
