Descriptions du produit

Extrait

Year by year, generation by generation, the way we look at our universe continues to evolve, thanks both to new technologies and new ways of thinking, spurred on by our ability to view stars and galaxies that are distant in space and time. We are sharing new ways of seeing as well, as space telescopes and interplanetary probes transmit information across millions of miles, information that we capture and transform into remarkable visual displays. From that information, ever new maps can be created— maps such as you have never seen before; maps like the ones in this beautiful volume.
 
This National Geographic Space Atlas has special meaning for me. It is an enduring honor to have been one of the few humans to have stood on the moon. Just 12 years after the launch of the Soviet Union’s first Earth-orbiting artificial satellite, Sputnik1, Neil Armstrong and I set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969.The moon to me is not a distant object in space but a real place where I spent time, and a real landscape that I remember in my mind’s eye. Looking at the maps of Earth’s moon on these pages is for me a little like retracing a vacation on the map that was carried along.

--Buzz Aldrin

2.0 étoiles sur 5 serious gutter problem 20 décembre 2012
Par VA Book Lover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I was eager to get my hands on this new book, which promised to be a nice gift for my cousin and a few other precocious kids I know. But the book is seriously marred by a gutter problem, where many of the maps and illustrations are cut in half! The most interesting parts are trapped in the middle of the tight book binding. In some cases, you can't even see the sun, because it's stuck in the gutter. This is a real shame, since it's obvious that the production values are otherwise very good. The maps of the planets are among the best I've ever seen. The text by Trefil is basic but solid. It's too bad that somebody at National Geographic didn't anticipate these complaints and compensate for the otherwise handsome design by a lay-flat binding or by adding a center gap to compensate for what's missing in the folds. Maybe this systematic shortcoming can be corrected in a new printing. If that's the case, I'll surely want a replacement copy.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A lot of up-to-date information in the new Space Atlas 18 novembre 2012
Par Gilbert V. Torbeck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I ordered this book as soon as I read about it, and I was not much disappointed when I received it. It certainly invites browsing, and many of the articles are not particularly long but give all the pertinent data. My only complaint (and I hope the NGS reads this), and reason I cannot give the Space Atlas five stars, is that book does not open flat. A book this size (and price) should open and fold flat on the table. The large 2-page planet maps are split down the middle with the spine of the book running through them, making it difficult to see the topography in the center of the planets. This does not affect the smaller satellite (moon) maps which fit on a single page. The fantastic hardcover Nasa Atlas of the Solar System (1997) also had this problem but resolved it neatly by having the enormous pages fold open completely flat. Nevertheless, I will keep the Space Atlas and refer to it often.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Almost perfect 12 octobre 2013
Par tom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This is a beautiful book which gives the reader a great "big picture " view of the universe. My only complaint is that several of the highly detailed graphics span two pages, and some information is buried in the binding, since the book doesn't open flat.

Update July 20,2014 There is a paperback version of this book which is showing up in the clearance section of large book stores. The paperback version opens flat and has no binding problems.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great comprehensive book of astronomical research and discoveries 1 décembre 2012
Par Astr0120 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This is a great resource for those who are interested is astronomy, cosmology, and astrophysics topics. The book is large
and heavy and full of many useful resources. One I find most useful is the topography of the planets derived from satellite
imaging. This allows us to see the planets like we have never seen them before. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is into the topic of astronomy and related fields. As an astronomy instructor I will find this book very helpful and an exquisite visual reference to many topics discussed in class.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Binding is awful 24 janvier 2014
Par jonathon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I would give it a five star because the book it self with all the content, photos and illustrations are very good. However the binding for this book was poorly done. in every page you lose a good portion of the vibrant visuals because a lagre part of them are lost in the binding. you cant open it flat all the way to see the whole picture. on one page with an layout of the solar system you lose the sun and the inner planets. I almost don't like it all.
