Readers get a tour of the places on Earth (and beyond Earth) that are yet to be fully explored. The titles cover what we already know about these places and how this knowledge was acquired. They also provide information on the possibilities for future exploration using new technology and techniques, as well as the pros and cons of continuing to explore. Solid geographical content is included, placing each unexplored place in context. Plus, readers can enjoy case studies of past and current explorations, including famous explorers and discoveries.
