The Milky Way is the only galaxy we have ever known, but how much do we really know about it? In this mind-expanding visual tour through the cosmos, interpretive graphics help recount the life story of our galaxy, while the text unpacks the principles governing the universe, exploring our solar system as well as the regions where stars are born, black holes lurk, and massive planets make their orbits. The Hubble Space Telescope acquired many images here, including a closeup of the sun, a breathtaking view of the night sky, and even a depiction of two spiral galaxies colliding.
