Paolo Ulivi and David Harland provide in Robotic Exploration of the Solar System a detailed history of unmanned missions of exploration of our Solar System As in their previous book Lunar Exploration, the subject will be treated wherever possible from an engineering and scientific standpoint. Technical descriptions of the spacecraft, of their mission designs and of instrumentations will be provided. Scientific results will be discussed in considerable depth, together with details of mission management. The books will cover missions from the 1950s until the present day, and some of the latest missions and their results will appear in a popular science book for the first time. The authors will also cover many unflown projects, providing an indication of the ideas that proved to be unfulfilled at the time but which may still be proven and useful in the future. Just like Lunar Exploration, these books will use sources only recently made available on the Soviet space program, in addition to some obscure and rarely used references on the European space program. The project will deliver three volumes totaling over 1000 pages that will provide comprehensive coverage of the topic with thousands of references to the professional literature that should make it the 'first port of call' for people seeking information on the topic

Pt. 2. Hiatus and renewal, 1983-1996. "In this thick, heavy tome, Mr. Harland and co-author Paolo Ulivi turn their exceptional narrative skills, technical knowledge and attention to detail to the story of American, Soviet and European unmanned planetary missions ... the presentation of the material is outstanding. ... I never found this volume to be at all boring. About 250 illustrations perfectly complement the text ... and all of them clearly and usefully captioned. If you want to know something about unmanned planetary exploration, this is the book for you." (Terry Sunday, Amazon, August, 2011)
Lunar exploration : human pioneers and robotic surveyors by Paolo Ulivi( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Lunar Exploration: Human Pioneers and Robotics Surveyors, Paolo Ulivi gives a lucid and accessible account of man's attempts to reach the Moon. As well as covering the well-documented manned and unmanned missions, he draws on recently declassified information to describe Chinese lunar exploration projects and how lunar nuclear weapons were developed by the superpowers in the 1950s. Since the mid 1970s, there have been few missions to the Moon but interest is once again on the increase. The United States has developed its Clementine and Lunar Prospector spacecraft, both Japan and the European Space Agency are involved in lunar missions, and there is interest from China and India, and hope that Russia will again become involved."--Jacket
Robotic exploration of the solar system by Paolo Ulivi( )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, the second book in this series, provides a review of the exploration of the Solar System, focusing on the technology of the robotic space probes that made it possible, including missions which were never completed. It describes planetary and interplanetary space missions, covering missions launched between 1983 and 1996. While the period covered is short, and was marked by a frustrating hiatus with rare missions, it saw the debut of new players, the decline of another, and a number of triumphs and failures. It was also marked by the 'Christmas tree' approach to planetary exploration which on the one hand caused a dearth of planetary missions and on the other hand a number of missions that produced an overwhelming return of results, not all of which were able to be included in this book. The period was also shaped by some peculiar external conditions: the American emphasis on human spaceflight and Shuttle flights, which deprived planetary missions of badly needed funds; the Challenger accident which derailed those few projects that had managed to survive; and finally the Strategic Defense Initiative, which provided technology for the low-cost revolution in deep space missions of the 1990s
