This combined edition published as an exclusive edition for W H Smith.
Previously published as two separate volumes as Wonders Of The Solar System and Wonders Of The Universe.

From the giant ice fountains of Enceladus to the liquid methane seas of Titan, and from storms twice the size of the Earth to the tortured moon of Io with its giant super-volcanoes, Professor Brian Cox introduces us to the planets and the moons beyond our most powerful natural phenomena. 13.7 billion years old. 93 billion light years wide. Over 100 billion galaxies, each containg hundreds of billions of stars. This infinte, vast and complex Universe has been the subject of human fascination and scientific exploration for thousands of years. The wonders of the Universe might seem alien to us and impossible to understand, but away from the telescopes, the labs and the white coats, Professor Brian Cox uses the evidence found in the natural world around us to explain its simple truths. Employing his trademark clear, authoritative, enthusiastic yet down-to-earth approach, Brian explores how unsual phenomena of our Solar System and Universe have dramatically expanded our horizons with new discoveries about the planets, their moons and how they come to be the way they are. This unique edition, which includes both Wonders of the Solar System and Universe, provides an insightful and mind-blowing journey through both space and time to answer the most profound questions we can ask about ourselves and the Universe in which we live, in a uniquely understandable way.

I've moved it to the correct author profile (removed the 'professor' from Brian Cox, and combined it with the other editions.
