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!"

"Humanity has always looked to the stars, but it hasn't been until relatively recently that we have managed to travel into space. Carolyn Collins Petersen takes us on a journey from the first space pioneers and their work, through the First World Warled technological advances in rocketry that formed the basis for the Space Age, to the increasing corporate interest in space. This detailed examination of our steps into space is viewed from our potential future there - on Mars to be exact - and considers how we will reach that point. The author concludes with our current advances and our immediate ambitions in space exploration. The future and its scientific possibilities are enthralling: who will be the first to step on Mars? Will matter/antimatter annihilations take us to the Kuiper Belt, or will it be ion propulsion? What is the Alcubierre Warp Drive? Will it take us to the stars?"--Publisher's description
