Review

“This second edition of what’s now become a classic off-Earth atlas runs the gamut from constellation star guides to annotated planetary maps based on the latest wave of space missions (including Messenger’s voyage to Mercury and New Horizons’ flyby of Pluto). Because it’s a National Geographic production, there are lots of magazine-quality photos and sumptuous graphics.” –GeekWire

“Full of charts, maps, and stunning photographs, the Space Atlas is a deeply informative and beautiful book…Anything notable in space gets a proper treatment in this book and the depth of information is incredible, all while remaining accessible and easy to understand.”  –Boingboing.net

“National Geographic’s Space Atlas combines updated maps, lavish photographs, and elegant illustrations to chart the solar system, the universe, and beyond…For this new edition, and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his moonwalk, astronaut and American hero Buzz Aldrin offers a new special section on Earth’s Moon and its essential role in space exploration past and future.”
–Leonarddavid.com

"Not only did I thoroughly enjoy reading Buzz Aldrin’s forward, I really loved losing a sense of time and space staring at the nearly sparkling images of nebulae in the book." –Scirens.com 

"Author James Trefil educates us and pushes the limits of the reader’s imagination. You will love this book!" -EDN Network

"This new edition captures the latest discoveries and describes what they will mean to our future with beautiful images and perspectives that make this an essential book to have - on paper - in your home." - SciFi Generation

"I don''t often tell you to go out and get yourself a copy, but in this case, I have to stress it, and tell you that you would be missing out so much, if you didn''t get a copy of this brilliant book for your own home." - Diary of a Stay at Home Mom

“It is SO WORTH IT…I personally love the star charts and foreword by Buzz Aldrin.”
--Instagram: @notthepathtonarnia

“This book has a way of touching your soul and making you think.” –Ms. Nose in a Book

“You guys...this book is gorgeous! It is coffee table eye candy!...For me, this book would be totally worth the price for the images alone.” –Jackie Reads Books

“If space interests you at all, even a little, this book is a must-have.” –Literary Quicksand

I''m not wild about the wear on the outer sleeve, but at least none of the pages seem damaged.

This superb volume is a true keepsake! The splendid photos augment a clear and explanatory text affording the reader a true insight into the nature of the universe around us. The photo-maps of specific astronomic locations (planets, moons, solar system, galaxies, the universe, ....) form an extremely helpful atlas to locate key astronomical sites. I highly recommend this marvelous volume - for both your library and your coffee-table!

Lots of information and awesome pictures and artistic renditions. It will take my son forever to consume all of the information presented and it seems to be well maintained, presenting up to date theories on almost any astro features you might be interested in. A great resource for someone interested in the field or just in awe with the scope of the subject.

The book itself is fantastic, but the product, which was said to be "new," was actually coated in a soapy film (detergent?), which had stuck the back cover onto the hard binding. Sponging it off salvaged the hard binding, but the cover/sleeve (which fortunately is duplicated in the hard binding) was damaged despite all efforts to remove it carefully. In any case, the seller was at fault here (not the product they were selling) for marketing a book as new that was far from new. Maybe an oversight? The soap residue was not in the package, it exhibited a pinkish color in lumps around the spine, and was quite visible and one could feel it immediately upon handling the book.

This was a gift for 10 years old boy who is obsessed with the space. He was delighted with this book. It’s different, more difficult and the most interesting than all other space encyclopedias he had.

I read the reviews before I bought this book. Some of the reviewers only gave one star because the cover was either damaged or marked. I took the risk knowing that I could return the book. Lo and behold the book arrived with marks on the cover, just as if a wrapping robot had greasy digits. This was easily fixed with a cotton swab, which my wife uses to remove makeup, and some surgical spirit. The book is now in perfect condition. The pictures and written material are first class and ideal for a beginner studying for astronomy exams or just an amateur like me who goes out every night, when there are no clouds, to look at light polluted skies in the city with binoculars. Buzz Aldrin wrote the introduction. 5 stars for the writing and the pictures. 1 star for me for finding a solution to the greasy cover. No need to send it back and the book is 5 stars as far as value for money is concerned. Ordered on the evening of 30th December and arrived next day without prime - 5 stars for that.

Completely disappointing book for anyone who has looked up Wikepedia or other astronomy books. This is supposed to show a lot of photos of main object in the solar system and also of other deep space stellar objects. There is usually only one original photo per object even of the sun. Most planet descriptions miss an image of their inner geologic composition. The explanations for each section are so sparse that they are nearly completely useless, more directed at a 10 to 13 year old child than an adult. By better books like Paul Murdin''s excellent @Secrets of the Universe: How We Discovered the Cosmos'' and his ''The Secret Lives of Planets''. These have only few photos but the text gives you all the information you ever want up to upper intermediate level of astronomy knowledge. Couple these two books up with the DK Eyewitness Planets'' book (directet at young children but has far more original photos of the planets than this National Geographic layman''s book) and pick another low cost book on the glaxy with also a lo more photos. If an original photo is used than only on of the visible light. No infrared, x-ray and radio wave photos to get a better understading of the internal structure.

In all other respects this Atlas lives up to the high standards of National Geographic publications. I did not return the item on this occasion because of the poor jacket, as I do not believe in unnecessarily causing disruptions to delivery cycles. However, had I intended this purchase to be for collection standard keeping. I would then have returned it asking for a guaranteed free from impediment item.

Looks like a lovely book but obviously missed the quality control check - the cover was thrown on (upside down which is obviously not the end of the world) with the corner folded over and marks on the cover. I bought this as a gift so I''m having to return it.
