From the Back Cover
Prepare for the ultimate intergalactic voyage.
Starting at planet Earth, you will travel over 130-billion-trillion kilometres across the solar system and Milky Way, through deep space to the very outer edge of the Universe. Along the way you will encounter raging planets and their deadly atmospheres, icy moons that could support life, and immense, silent asteroids spinning through the vacuum of space. Witness the fiery births and deaths of stars, feel the awesome gravitational grip of black holes and investigate the mysteries of dark matter on a journey across the cosmos.
Data streams, digital readouts and unique graphic interfaces, such as "Image Enhance", "Atmosphere Analysis" and "Surface Detail" provide the most up-to-date facts and information about the sights, spectacles and breathtaking scale of the Universe - as well as some of the deadly hazards that lurk in space and how to avoid them.
