About the book
“An aesthetic revelation. . . . A spectacular melding of science and art.”—Los Angeles Times

Now in an affordable paperback edition accompanying a national touring exhibition that The New York Times acclaimed as “stunning,” this epic photographic tour of the solar system will inspire a new audience with a sense of wonder.

To create Beyond, author Michael Benson spent years compiling and digitally processing 295 of the greatest photographs taken by the amazing spacecrafts that have been exploring the solar system for almost half a century. The images, many revealing iconic landmarks, are of a quality to rival the greatest landscape photography on Earth. The eloquent and informative text, with contributions by legendary science-fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke and award-winning critic Laurence Weschler, as well as essays by the author, is a delight to read.
