The Planets: Photographs from the Archives of NASA Reviews

    Absolutely amazing. Highly recommend it.

  • Van Reese

    To quote from the back cover of the book, "Anyone with an interest in science, astronomy, and the mysteries of space will delight in this awe-inspiring guide to our solar system." This book contains some of the finest photos available of the solar system and are accompanied by detailed captions which by themselves are quite amazing. Fiery volcanoes, canyons and mountains of unimaginable dimensions, and ice volcanoes! Oh my! The pictures and pages are high quality. I highly recommend this book.

    Thank you Goodreads for my copy of The Planets:Photographs from the Archives of NASA by Nirmala Nataraj. What a great book. The pictures are truly amazing. This is the definitive coffee table book. Company and friends will be shocked at how clear the NASA pictures can be in this book. Love the hard cover. And certainly everyone can learn something from this fine book. An excellent addition to any library.

    A lovely book filled with wonderful photographs and a little bit of commentary on each.

  • Krystle

    First of all, this is a gorgeous book! That being said, it is an interesting book with lots of pictures and quick descriptions and esxplanations. I think this would be fun book for anyone with an interest in astronomy and space.

    Whoa- this book of the planets with Archived shots from NASA- amaze-balls. I can't believe how gorgeous our universe is. Take a look at the solar flares and auroras- unbelievable. You can't photoshop this intergalactic beauty!

    I enjoyed looking at the pictures in this book. My favorite planet is earth of course. But, my second favorite planet is mars. I think it would be fun to live on another planet. I don' think that will happen for me but, its fun thinking about. Maybe i could life in the mom Titan. The book said a human might be able to live on that moon with only warm clothing and an oxygen mask. I winder if food can grow on another planet. I enjoy picture books. Not so as many words.

    Good photos, quick explanations. I especially enjoyed the close ups of the asteroids as I was not aware that such closeups existed. Also the moon shadows on the gas Giants is extraordinary.
