We are in the midst of a veritable explosion of knowledge about the planets and all that lies between them. This glorious and unprecedented era of ongoing discovery has shown us a "new" solar system, one brimming with unanticipated beauty, diversity, and mystery. Our robotic emissaries have visited every planet except Pluto. Through these explorations we have mapped the faces of our distant neighbors, dug into their soils, and plumbed their exotic atmospheres. And astronomers now realize that ours is but one of many solar systems in our part of the Milky Way galaxy.
This book summarizes the fruits of our interplanetary explorations over the last quarter century. Its clear, engaging text and hundreds of images and illustrations will transport you to planetary realms that have long captivated our imagination. Join 30 of the world's most accomplished planetary scientists -and master artist Don Davis- on a grand expedition of adventure and discovery. Journey with them accross "The new solar system!"
