The Outer Solar System: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and the Dwarf Planets
Erik Gregersen Associate Editor, Astronomy and Space Exploration
The Rosen Publishing Group, Inc, 20 de dez de 2009 - 256 páginas
The sun's warmth while enjoyed by the inner planets loses its strength in the outer solar system, as does our knowledge. The mysterious Jovian planets and dwarf planets, ultra-red matter, and short-period comets will fascinate readers endlessly. As NASA s New Horizon mission will tell us more about Pluto and the Kuiper Belt in 2015, this book lays the foundation in anticipation of our impending new truths. The narrative is supported by gorgeous photographs and fascinating sidebars.
