The new updated edition of David Olusoga’s vital book on black British history

"Groundbreaking" – Observer

A dazzling infographic tour of the solar system, edited by Sky at Night presenter Maggie Aderin-Pocock - the first in an exciting new series of BBC-branded reference guides to popular topics Take a new look at the world around you. What is a planet? Is there life on Mars? What makes Earth so special? Questions about our Solar System have fascinated us for centuries. Based on the latest scientific research, The Story of the Solar System will help you see the planets around us in a whole new light. Using colourful and easy-to-follow infographics, each planet becomes a character with a story of its own to tell, from Jupiter the King of the Solar System to ice oddity Uranus and outlier planet-but-not-a-planet Pluto. As Space Scientist Maggie Aderin-Pocock shows us, the story of Earth is best understood as part of its larger family, and The Story of the Solar System will bring that family to life. The BBC is the world's oldest and most recognised public service broadcaster, with a mission to enrich people's lives through programming that informs, educates and entertains. At the heart of that mission is great storytelling, and The Story Of guides use those tools to bring big subjects to life. With engaging infographics and illustration, accessible language and simple timelines, The Story Of will help you discover new worlds.
