Publisher Comments:

Gareth Stevens is proud to present a completely updated and revised Spanish edition of our highly acclaimed Isaac Asimov's New Library of the Universe. Noted science author Richard Hantula has re-worked the text throughout to reflect the latest discoveries and theories, and has selected the most up-to-the-minute new photographs to bring these volumes into the 21st century while maintaining the authority and accessibility of the original. Asimov's original work forms the basis for a fascinating mixture of science fact and theory combined with his simple prose style. The result is a series capable of answering, in an understandable and truly informative way, the multitude of questions children ask when they gaze skyward. Children will discover amaizing facts such as: the estimated number of known asteroids has doubled from 5,000 to 10,000 since 1987, the status of Pluto as a plant is now questioned by some astronomers, and the Hubble Space Telescope's photography has revealed the turbulent surface of Saturn as it had never been seen before. The probe Voyager 2 has provided remarkable new photos of previously unseen moons and a dark spot on Uranus's surface possibly like Jupiter's "red spot." Text and photos include close-ups of moons Titania and Oberon. Special Features: Glossary More Books to Read Videos Places to Visit Places to Write Index Fact file
