Physics and chemistry of the solar system by John S Lewis( )

46 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in English and held by 2,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is aimed at several distinct audiences: first, the upper division science major who wants an up-to-date appreciation of the present state of the planetary sciences for 'cultural' purposes; second, the first-year graduate student from any of several undergraduate disciplines who intends to take graduate courses in specialized areas of planetary sciences; and third, the practicing Ph. D. scientist with training in physics, chemistry, geology, astronomy, meteorology, biology, etc., who has a highly specialized knowledge of some portion of this material, but has not had the opportunity to study the broad context within which that specialty might be applied to current problems in this field
Planets and their atmospheres : origin and evolution by John S Lewis( )

19 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 1,598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume critically surveys our present knowledge of the origin, composition, and evolution of planetary atmospheres, beginning with the presolar nebula and culminating with the present states and evolutionary trends of these atmospheres. The authors give special emphasis to the comparative study of Venus, Earth, and Mars as examples of evolving atmospheres. They cover in detail processes on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Titan, and lo and review evidence on the abundance, distribution, and behavior of the volatile elements in asteroids and in planetary satellite systems

20 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Chinese and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Work at the Lunar Planetary Institute in Tucson, Arizona, Lewis makes the bold proposal that the depletion of the earth's natural resources, as well as the overpopulation of the planet, are solvable problems; indeed, that the unlimited wealth of resources orbiting the sun will ultimately sustain ten quadrillion people living in the many worlds - both natural and man-made - that will compose our enhanced solar system. And reaping the fruits of these nearby solid objects

Asteroid mining 101 : wealth for the new space economy by John S Lewis( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The emerging asteroid mining industry has extremely ambitious intentions. It is within the realm of possibility that their work may usher in a change in global economics as profound as the Industrial Revolution. As may be expected, press reports dealing with asteroid mining have been numerous, ranging in scope from short and breezy to broad and serious, and in quality from accurate to impressionistic to simply uninformed. There is good reason to be curious about what may be the biggest game-changer in human economic history. And there is good reason to look closely at the underlying science and engineering that form the foundation of this work." -- From Publisher's Description

3 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics and Chemistry of the Solar System, 2nd Edition, is a comprehensive survey of the planetary physics and physical chemistry of our own solar system. It covers current research in these areas and the planetary sciences that have benefited from both earthbased and spacecraftbased experimentation. These experiments form the basis of this encyclopedic reference, which skillfully fuses synthesis and explanation. Detailed chapters review each of the major planetary bodies as well as asteroids, comets, and other small orbitals. Astronomers, physicists, and planetary scientists can use this stateoftheart book for both research and teaching. This Second Edition features extensive new material, including expanded treatment of new meteorite classes, spacecraft findings from Mars Pathfinder through Mars Odyssey 2001, recent reflections on brown dwarfs, and descriptions of planned NASA, ESA, and Japanese planetary missions. * New edition features expanded treatment of new meteorite classes, the latest spacecraft findings from Mars, information about 100+ new discoveries of planets and stars, planned lunar and planetary missions, more endofchapter exercises, and more * Includes extensive new material and is amply illustrated throughout * Reviews each major planetary body, asteroids, comets, and other small orbitals
