Summary

Companion book to the BBC program presented by Brian Cox.

Mercury, a lifeless victim of the Sun's expanding power. Venus, trapped within a toxic and boiling atmosphere. Mars, the red planet, doomed by the loss of its atmosphere. Jupiter, twice the size of all the other planets combined, but insubstantial. Saturn, a stunning celestial beauty, the jewel of our Solar System. Uranus, the sideways planet and the first ice giant. Neptune, dark, cold and whipped by supersonic winds. Pluto, the dwarf planet, a frozen rock.

These are Earth's sister planets, each born in violence and fire, only to fade away one by one into lifelessness. And the more we learn about our celestial neighbours, the more unlikely, the more precious our own blue marble becomes.
