Couper H., Henbest N. Encyclopedia of Space
2011. - 304 p.

The DK encyclopedia of space contains detailed information on every aspect of astronomy, space, and the universe. Entries are grouped into sections, so that all the information about planets, stars, galaxies, or spacecraft can be found together. Within each section are main entries. Each entry opens with an introduction to the subject, then goes into more detail in separate, easy-to-manage topics that use photos and artwork to illustrate the facts. To find information on a particular subject, the index will guide you to all the entries on that topic.
