Imagine you could travel through the entire Solar System, visiting the Sun and the planets, taking in everything from moons to asteroid belts along the way. What would you see, and feel? What would you eat? How would you produce fuel? How would you survive?

On this epic voyage of discovery, astronomer Mark Thompson guides you through the cosmos, from how to prepare for such a mission to what it would be like to visit each planet, what you'd be likely to discover beyond the mysterious Kuiper Belt, and the various struggles encountered as the years roll by. This really is science meets science-fiction.
