Are you on board to join Jeff Bezos as a tourist in outer space? It may take a while to hit the mainstream, but in the meantime, scientists and Intergalactic Travel Bureau members Olivia Koski and Jana Grcevich have teamed up to create an illustrated guide for your trip. Publisher’s Weekly calls it “An ideal introduction to the solar system for younger readers and casual space fans who crave an imaginative trip into the possibilities of real space tourism.” They encourage readers to imagine taking a hike along the windswept red plains of Mars to dig for signs of life, or touring one of Jupiter’s sixty-four moons where you can photograph its swirling storms. With four-color illustrations and packed with real-world science, The Vacation Guide to the Solar System covers all of the essentials for the voyage including how to get there, and what to do when you arrive. A sneak peek of the real thing, Koski and Grcevich take you on a virtual tour of the galaxy.
