The sun's warmth—while enjoyed by the inner planets—loses its strength in the outer solar system, as does our knowledge. The mysterious Jovian planets and dwarf planets, ultra-red matter, and short-period comets will fascinate readers endlessly. As NASA’s New Horizon mission will tell us more about Pluto and the Kuiper Belt in 2015, this book lays the foundation in anticipation of our impending new truths. The narrative is supported by gorgeous photographs and fascinating sidebars.
