First, Pluto left. Then it came back, along with Ceres and Eris...and now Haumea and MakeMake, too! The recent actions of the International Astronomical Union have put every solar system book out of date. In response, National Geographic joins forces with David Aguilar of the Harvard Smithsonian Astronomical Observatory to revise our 2008 book—and to update young readers on the high-interest topic of space. Using simple text and spectacular photorealistic computer art by the author, this book profiles all 13 planets in their newly created categories—plus the sun, the Oort Cloud, comets, and other worlds being discovered. Back-of-the-book activities offer hands-on fun for budding astronomers.

Travel the near and far reaches of the solar system in this lively, beautifully illustrated Smithsonian nonfiction book! Ready for a wondrous celestial journey? How about a trip to our close neighbor Mars, home to the largest volcano in the solar system? Or to Europa, a watery lunar world with a really deep ocean? Or beyond the beyond to mysterious Planet 9, an unseen giant lurking in the far outer regions of space? This extraordinary book puts you right there: breaking through colorful gaseous hazes; exploring the surface of red-hot or ice-cold planets; hurtling through rings of flying, frozen ice chunks; and rocketing on out to deep space. Astronomer David Aguilar is our navigator on these seven wonderful trips through our solar system—journeys that someday may actually happen!   The SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION is the world’s largest museum and research complex. Founded in 1846, it includes nineteen museum and galleries, the National Zoological Park, and nine research facilities. Its vast collections house 138 million artifacts, specimens, and works of art, which represent our nation’s rich heritage, art from across the globe, and the immense diversity of the natural and cultural world.

A Smithsonian Air and Space Magazine Best Book of 2017 A 2018 NSTA-CBC Outstanding Science Titles “Twenty or so years from now, we may point to this book as the launchpad for the careers of astrophysicists and astronauts.” —The New York Times “Young children will find the alphabet in amazing places in ABCs from Space, an abecedary composed of distant landforms, cloud formations, and sinuous waterways.” —The Wall Street Journal “This remarkable bird’s-eye…view of the planet…lets readers see Earth—and the alphabet—in a new light.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) Look up! Does that cloud look like an animal? Do the stars form a circle in the sky? But have you ever wondered what our world looks like from space? Discover the alphabet in an all-new way with this clever picture book filled with unaltered images of Earth from space. In this ingenious alphabet book, scientist and writer Adam Voiland takes us on a journey of our planet from afar. And you might be very surprised at what you see. Could that river form an A?

From A to Z, ABCs from Space is a rare opportunity to see Earth like you could never have imagined. And as you go through the book, play a guessing game of where and what the letters might be and then find the answers in the detailed descriptions in the back of the book along with information about the science of space.
