Publisher's Summary

Packed with real science and fueled by imagination, a travel guide to traveling in our solar system
Imagine taking a hike along the windswept red plains of Mars to dig for signs of life or touring one of Jupiter's 64 moons, where you can photograph its swirling storms. For a shorter trip on a tight budget, the moon is quite majestic and very quiet if you can make it during the off-season.
Packed with real-world science, The Vacation Guide to the Solar System is the must-have planning guide for the curious space adventurer, covering all of the essentials for your next voyage, how to get there, and what to do when you arrive. Written by an astronomer from The American Museum of Natural History and one of the creators of the Guerilla Science collective, this tongue-in-cheek reference guide is an imaginative exploration into the "what if?" of space travel, sharing fascinating facts about space, the planets in our solar system, and even some moons!
