Annotation:
Physicist Alvin Jenkins and illustrator Steve Jenkins present a comprehensive little description of the Solar System, curiously illustrated with beautiful paper collages. Jenkins begins with the creation of a star and moves out through the planets and major moons, describing what each one would be like to visit and how long it would take to arrive there if traveling by automobile. For further size and distance differentiation, Jenkins imagines the sun as a basketball and earth as a pea, with a mile and a half between them in order to be true to scale. Odd facts abound with each stop along the way: on the asteroid Ceres, it would be no trick to jump six miles straight up, while Mars's tallest volcano towers almost three times the height of Mount Everest, a statistic that would certainly daunt even Edmund Hilary. Jenkins ends with a speculation about life on other planets.n
