The Martian surface : composition, mineralogy, and physical properties by Jim Bell( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phenomenal new observations from Earth-based telescopes and Mars-based orbiters, landers, and rovers have dramatically advanced our understanding of the past environments on Mars. This text provides a new overview of the compositional and mineralogic properties of Mars
The interstellar age : inside the forty-year Voyager mission by Jim Bell( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the men and women who drove the Voyager spacecraft mission -- told by a scientist who was there from the beginning. The Voyager spacecraft are our farthest-flung emissaries -- 11.3 billion miles away from the crew who built and still operate them, decades since their launch. Voyager 1 left the solar system in 2012; its sister craft, Voyager 2, will do so in 2015. The fantastic journey began in 1977, before the first episode of Cosmos aired. The mission was planned as a grand tour beyond the moon; beyond Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn; and maybe even into interstellar space. The fact that it actually happened makes this humanity's greatest space mission. In The Interstellar Age, planetary scientist Jim Bell reveals what drove and continues to drive the members of this extraordinary team, including Ed Stone, Voyager's chief scientist and the one-time head of NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab; Charley Kohlhase, an orbital dynamics engineer who helped to design many of the critical slingshot maneuvers around planets that enabled the Voyagers to travel so far; and the geologist whose Earth-bound experience would prove of little help in interpreting the strange new landscapes revealed in the Voyagers' astoundingly clear images of moons and planets. Speeding through space at a mind-bending eleven miles a second, Voyager 1 is now beyond our solar system's planets. It carries with it artifacts of human civilization. By the time Voyager passes its first star in about 40,000 years, the gold record on the spacecraft, containing various music and images including Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode," will still be playable

Explores 250 wide-ranging milestones in the history of the planet Earth, including the birth of the moon, the oldest signs of life on Earth, the first mines, the invention of agriculture, women in earth science, reaching the South Pole, planet genetics, earthlike exoplanets, and rising CO₂ levels. Some of the key scientists and inventors from around the world who have shaped our modern understanding of planet Earth, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Johannes Kepler, are also included
Hubble legacy : 30 years of discoveries and images by Jim Bell( Book )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the definitive book on the Hubble Space Telescope, written by noted astronomer Jim Bell. Looking deep into space, by definition, means looking back in time--and the Hubble Space Telescope can look very far back, including at stars, nebulae, and galaxies that are millions, even billions, of years old. If there is a single legacy of Hubble as it turns 30 years old and nears the end of its useful life, it is this: It has done more to chronicle the origin and evolution of the known universe than any other instrument ever created. Hubble has also captured an astounding collection of ultraviolet images that include geysers of solar light, Mars' famous dust storms, exploding stars, solar flares, globular clusters, and actual galaxies colliding. As for scientific milestones, Hubble has helped us learn that the universe is 13.8 billion years old, that just about every large galaxy features a black hole at its center, and that it's possible to create 3-D maps of dark matter. Hubble Legacy will not only feature the most stunning imagery captured by the telescope, but also explain how Hubble has advanced our understanding of the universe and our very creation
Remote compositional analysis : techniques for understanding spectroscopy, mineralogy, and geochemistry of planetary surfaces( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do planetary scientists analyze and interpret data from laboratory, telescopic, and spacecraft observations of planetary surfaces? What elements, minerals, and volatiles are found on the surfaces of our Solar System's planets, moons, asteroids, and comets? This comprehensive volume answers these topical questions by providing an overview of the theory and techniques of remote compositional analysis of planetary surfaces. Bringing together eminent researchers in Solar System exploration, it describes state-of-the-art results from spectroscopic, mineralogical, and geochemical techniques used to analyze the surfaces of planets, moons, and small bodies. The book introduces the methodology and theoretical background of each technique, and presents the latest advances in space exploration, telescopic and laboratory instrumentation, and major new work in theoretical studies. This engaging volume provides a comprehensive reference on planetary surface composition and mineralogy for advanced students, researchers, and professional scientists
