Book Review
It explores the exciting and varied planets that exist outside of our planet. It covers a wide range of astronomical and space science-related themes, from creating planets and stars to the look for extraterrestrial life.
Each chapter of the book makes me focus on a distinct area of astronomy or space exploration, and it is instructive and well-organized. However, its writing style is scientific which makes it difficult to understand for a broader audience. I personally recommend this book if you are fond of astronomy and physics.
