When the International Astronomical Union recently redefined the term “planet,” Pluto was stripped of its designation as the solar system’s ninth planet. New Views of the Solar System looks at scientists’ changing perspectives on the solar system, with articles on Pluto, the eight chief planets, and dwarf planets that illustrate this “new view.” Brilliant photos and drawings showcase the planets, asteroids, comets, and more, providing a stunning collection of vivid and detailed images of the solar system.
