Summary Otherworlds is a record of humanity's planetary exploration and a tribute to the stunning beauty of our solar system in spectacular high-resolution landscape images, processed by Michael Benson to capture how the planets would look if we could visit them and see them with our own eyes. We start in low Earth orbit and then move on to the Moon and our planetary neighbors, Mars and Venus. We then explore Mercury and the Sun before traveling to the gas giants of the outer solar system--Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune--and onward to Pluto. Using the best imagery from remarkable missions of robotic spacecraft, Benson takes us on a voyage of discovery that gives us a new, expansive concept of home and our place in the universe.
