Summary
This work provides a description of the planets and their moons. The books begins with an introduction to the history of planetary observation and discovery. The major planets and their moons are then introduced by presenting common properties, processes, and themes. This is followed by chapters which focus on individual planets and other solar system objects, including a comprehensive treatment of the various space missions; from the Apollo missions to the Moon, to recent missions to Jupiter and Mars
