Seven Wonders of the Solar System with David Aguilar

Join us Thursday, December 14 in welcoming internationally recognized Astronomer and Explore More Founder, David Aguilar. Ready for a wondrous celestial journey? How about a trip to our close neighbor Mars, home to the largest volcano in the solar system? Or to Europa, a watery lunar world with a really deep ocean? Or beyond the beyond to mysterious Planet 9, an unseen giant lurking in the far outer regions of space?

This extraordinary book puts you right there: breaking through colorful gaseous hazes; exploring the surface of red-hot or ice-cold planets; hurtling through rings of flying, frozen ice chunks; and rocketing on out to deep space. Astronomer David Aguilar is our navigator on these seven wonderful trips through our solar system--journeys that someday may actually happen.

David A. Aguilar is an internationally recognized astronomer and author of science-based nonfiction for space learners of all ages. His expertise lies in showing us the fascinating connections between the universe, nature and ourselves. He has the spirited ability to guide open minds through his exciting new views of space, and into a wondrous world of discovery.
