Discovery Spaceopedia is a comprehensive introduction to everything about our solar system, space travel, and all branches of science that relate to outer space. The illustrations, photographs, and facts are all well organized and presented in a way that is understandable and interesting. I found that it was not necessarily new information, at least to me. I think older readers that have already explored other books about space and related sciences will have a similar reaction. It would make a good resources with all of the information in a single volume, or comprehensive starting point for interested readers. It is a well organized and informative text with pictures and tips that capture the interest and the imagination of readers.
Discovery Spaceopedia is a comprehensive and interesting read. I think it will hold little new information for fans of the subject that have already done their research, but collects all the relevant information for reference in a single book. I think this would be a great resource for new fans to the subject matter, or for long time space fanatics that have been looking for a single book to cover their interest.
