In Wonders of the Solar System – the book of the acclaimed BBC TV series – Professor Brian Cox takes us on a journey of discovery where alien worlds from your imagination become places we can see, feel and visit.
The Wonders of the Solar System – 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 – is the Solar System as you have never seen it before.

In the TV series, Professor Brian Cox introduces us to the planets and moons beyond our world, finding the biggest, most bizarre, most powerful natural phenomena. Using the latest scientific imagery along with cutting edge CGI and some of the most spectacular and extreme locations on Earth, Brian will show us Wonders never thought possible.
Employing his trademark clear, authoritative, yet down-to-earth approach, Brian will explore how these previously unseen phenomena have dramatically expanded our horizons with new discoveries about the planets, their moons and how
they came to be the way they are.

Customer ReviewsSee All
Even if you've not seen the program, this is a nice book. Prof Cox's passion comes across....a recommend buy.
For those who keep complaining about prices...get a grip the format of these enhanced books are brilliant and intuitive!
Would have happily paid a suitable for this 'book' but this is extortion! After all it's just a digital copy.
But you can go without the enhanced version. The videos are so small that the extra £2 is not worth it
