About this title

Synopsis:

Voyager takes the reader on a visually stunning grand tour of the universe. We blast off from Earth and into space at the speed of light, reaching the moon in just 1.3 seconds, the Sun in eight minutes and Saturn in an hour. Every page turned takes the reader deeper into the Universe. The cycles of stellar life unfold before our eyes: we traverse clouds of dust and gas in which clusters of embryonic stars are incubating, we discover spectacular nebulae blazing in the fierce radiation of stellar new-borns, we watch dying stars blossom and expire - or explode, with a luminosity that can outshine a galaxy, in the stellar last hurrah of a supernova. 100,000 light years out, we cross into intergalactic space, sailing on threads of 'dark matter' that weave through the cosmos like cobwebs encrusted with a glittering menagerie of galaxies. From here we can discern the large-scale anatomy of the Universe, its history and perhaps even its future. Every object visited on this extraordinary journey - planet, comet, star, nebula, white dwarf, black hole, pulsar or quasar - is accompanied by an awe-inspiring full-page image and a concise but enlightening text
