Media reviews
'Taylor has produced a useful and fascinating book that I can recommend to anyone interested in the planets.' C. R. Kitchin, Astronomy Now 'Asteroids, comets and meteorites provide the basis for theories about how the more highly processed, bigger objects of the solar system came to be, and Taylor covers this territory well.' Martin Ince, Times Higher Education Supplement 'This photographic guide will be of interest to anybody with a fascination for the planets, from the amateur to the professional astronomer.' Richard Taylor, Spaceflight '! a family album of revealing photographs of our many previously unseen and mysterious neighbors ! an arresting reminder of the stunning collection of photos and photo mosaics that have been amassed from 30 years of solar-system exploration and a compelling record of the journeys of Pathfinder, Galileo, Magellan, Clementine, and the rest of man's team of continuing explorers.' Brian Anderson, Lunar and Planetary Information
