Format: Hardcover
Charles and Ray Eames give us a photographic tour of the universe we can hold in our hands. Starting with a picture of the dark emptiness of at the edge of the universe, each page brings us closer to our galaxy, solar system, planet, and down to the one power of ten on which we humans live. But then we continue to dive deeper -- skin deep -- shrinking smaller and smaller through the cells, molecules, and finally sub-atomic space of which we are composed... finding the empty space within the atom to be eerily reminiscent of outer space itself. It's an exciting, thought-provoking five-minute journey you'll want to take again and again.

This is a book which would be a super gift for graduates, grandchildren or anyone who is interested in "our world and how we see it".
It's easy to read and understand, and one of a few 'special' science based books - NOT statistics, but PICTURES!!!

Great book that explores the macro and micro universe we live in, by the power of 10. I read this years ago and had to find it again.
