Out of the Cradle: Exploring the Frontiers beyond Earth is a 1984 book written and illustrated by planetary scientist William K. Hartmann, Ron Miller and Pamela Lee. Cradle describes potential manned space missions to the planets, moons and asteroids of the Solar System.

Ron Miller (Author), William K. Hartmann (Author), Pamela Lee (Illustrator) & 0. .I got William Hartman's other books Cycles of Fire, The Grand Tour, Brief History of Earth back in the early 90's. Hartmann (Author), Pamela Lee (Illustrator) & 0 more. Astronomer William K. Hartmann explores the new landmarks within our reach and projects how the realms of space will open not only to astronauts and scientists, but to visitors, workers and, eventually, settlers. These extraordinary adventures are projected in 120 mind-expanding, full-color paintings. This one I have only now bought. Written in the 80s it is still a good read.

From super-hot White Dwarfs and invisible Black Holes to the star-making soup of distant galaxies, Cycles of Fire unveils and explains the fascinating "geography" of the universe. Four-color illustrations.

Wat!?
Although the science is a bit out of date (nothing horribly wrong, it just doesn't include more recent information on extra-solar planets that have been discovered, Pluto's downgrade from planet, etc.). The main strength of this book is its wonderful illustrations. The pictures are wonderful, but the real gems here are the conceptual images painted by artists to conceptualize things like the view on a planet with blue and red suns, the sunset on a planet that circles a gas giant at a great distance from the sun, the daytime view on a planet that has multiple suns (I think there are 7 in the image I'm thinking of), plus depictions of black holes (not black dots on a background of stars at all), a dual-sun in which one sun is slowly drawing gas from the other, etc.

If you have an interest in science fiction, cosmology, etc. you may find this book very interesting to browse through.

The only reason I rated it a 4 is due to its age and lack of recent information.

I was recently reunited with this childhood book, and was transported by its gorgeous paintings. It's the paintings that make this heavy paperback worth owning.

This is the book that turned me on to astronomy.

Since then, I've become an avid amateur astronomer. I've served for 19 years on the board of directors of my local astronomy club. I run public observing sessions in city parks. And I'm a docent at the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History (yes, I know Neil). And this book is where that all began.

Thank you, Ron Miller and William K. Hartmann!

This book is a walk-through of fantastic hypothetical vistas around planets, stars, and even galaxies in the cosmos. While seriously dated (pushing 20), and aimed at an audience with little or no astronomical background, the art is amazing and inspiring; this book did more to fire me up for astronomy as a child than any other. This is art you can daydream with.

Highly recommended.
