David Brodie "Ice, Rock, and Beauty: A Visual Tour of the New Solar System"

Springer, December 2007 | ISBN: 0387731024 | PDF Format, 143 pages | English | 14.6 MB

Although most people have some knowledge of the essential structure of the Solar System, few are familiar with the large and varied array of objects that travel with and between the planets in their journeys around the Sun.

Imaging techniques from Earth continue to improve, while missions such as Voyager, Galileo and the Hubble Space Telescope have yielded many excellent images. Most significantly of all, several missions in recent years have shown a huge diversity of objects in close-up for the first time. The book will take advantage of the rich pool of images that is available, to tell a story of the Solar System that has not been told before.
Smaller Bodies will be a collection of approximately 72 stunning images, all from the public domain but not hitherto gathered into a coherent collection, with supporting text and graphics. Each main image will be accompanied by a graphic showing the location in the Solar System of the featured object. All of these graphics will be based in a simple template providing a simple representation of the Solar System. Text will not be extensive, allowing page design to have a high priority, and will be of three kinds. Main text (approximately 200 words) will provide stimulating introduction and some key ideas. Text headed The object(s) (25-75 words) will provide a brief description of featured objects. Text headed The image (25-75 words) will provide information on the source of the image and some brief technical information where required (such as in describing use of false color).
The book is intended for anybody who lives in solar orbit and takes a general interest in the solar neighborhood.

David G. Fisher, Richard R. Erickson "The Solar System, 3 vol set"

Salem Press | English | 2009-07-10 | ISBN: 1587655306 | 1056 pages | PDF | 15,5 MB

This book features essential coverage of all major aspects of Earth's solar system, from every feature of the major planets to their satellites, small bodies, interplanetary phenomena, and cosmological context. Designed to meet the needs of both general readers and students, this completely revised and updated edition covers 180 major topics on Earth's solar system as it is understood from the latest perspectives.

For this new edition, 58 new topics have been added and every essay has been thoroughly expanded, from the text through bibliographies, to bring it up to date in view of the many interplanetary missions that have expanded our knowledge of the solar system - from Pioneer and Voyager through the missions of Galileo, Cassini-Huygens, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the latest Mars probes as of 2009. Scope and coverage: No reference dedicated to the solar system is this detailed or complete and up to date. Coverage is presented in an A-Z format - from 'Archaeoastronomy' and 'Asteroids' through 'Venus' Volcanoes' and 'White and Black Dwarfs' - and is supplemented by more than two hundred photos. For those wishing instant access to essays grouped by planetary system, a Category Index appears in the front of every volume.

Essays fall into one or more of the following categories: the Cosmological Context, Earth, the Jovian System, Life in the Solar System, Mars, Mercury, Natural Planetary Satellites, Neptune, Planets and Planetology, the Saturnian System, Scientific Methods, Small Bodies, the Solar System as a Whole, the Stellar Context, the Sun, Uranus, and Venus. Organization and format: Essays range in length from three to seven pages and offer a complete overview of the topic as well as an assessment of knowledge gained, methods of study, or applications. Each essay begins with standard, ready-reference information, including the title of the essay, the category (or categories) in which the essay falls, and a summary of the importance of the topic and the current state of our knowledge. The essay is then broken down into several subsections. An 'Overview' section, generally the longest subsection in the essay, details basic information about the subject and discusses the main facts about the topic. 'Knowledge Gained/Methods of Study/Applications' details how the topic is investigated, what scientific knowledge we have accumulated, or the uses of the knowledge we have gained. 'Context' addresses the topic from the larger perspective of the history of solar-system science and its relevance for humankind. 'Further Reading' is an annotated selection of the most important print resources for further study. Lastly, 'See Also' lists cross-references to other essays in The Solar System covering related topics.

Special features: the front matter of each volume includes a Complete List of Contents and a Category Index. The set is heavily illustrated, with over 300 photos. At the end of volume three, users will find a general bibliography, a list of web resources, a comprehensive glossary, and a full subject index. This title contains 3 Volumes; 1,056 Pages; 180 Essays, 58 New; 'See Also' Cross-References; Complete List of Contents; Category Index; Glossary; Bibliography; Web Sites; and Subject Index.

The Inner Solar System: The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars (An Explorer's Guide to the Universe) By Erik Gregersen
Publisher: Rosen Education Service 2009-12-20 | 224 Pages | ISBN: 1615300120 | PDF | 7.8 MB

Ancient people around the globe once believed the Moon, Sun, planets, and stars were gods and goddesses, demons and angels revolving around Earth, the centre of their universe. Little did they know that Earth is a mere speck in a vast universe. It took many centuries for people to realize that Earth isn’t even the centre of our solar system. It is, however, one of the components of what’s known as the inner solar system— comprised of the Sun, four terrestrial planets, and the moons that orbit them—which is examined thoroughly in this book.

With the development of modern astronomy and the advent of scientifi c tools, particularly the telescope, scientists began examining the solar system and theorizing about our place in it. The solar system and the space just beyond it form the extent of our physical reach in the universe.
Even with manned and unmanned spacecraft, we may never explore farther than the outer boundary of the solar system. So scientists observe and study our solar system in order to learn more about the universe itself.

Much of our knowledge comes from the celestial bodies within the inner solar system, but there is still much to learn. Our solar system includes the Sun, eight planets (formerly nine), many moons....

The Outer Solar System: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and the Dwarf Planets (An Explorer's Guide to the Universe) By Erik Gregersen

Publisher: Rosen Education Service 2009-12-20 | 224 Pages | ISBN: 1615300147 | PDF | 5.3 MB

After hundreds of years of observation, theorizing, exploration, and data collection, the universe is still a mysterious place. Numerous cosmic questions remain unanswered despite the scientifi c and technological dvances
made since the telescope was invented in the 1600s. But we are learning more about the cosmos all the time through intense examination of the solar system in which we live. Still, learning about the outer solar system has proved to be diffi cult, to say the least. What is known about the farthest reaches of our solar system is discussed, at great length and in fi ne detail, in this book. Scientists have launched many spacecraft into orbit. anned spacecraft have traveled as far as the moon. Unmanned probes have approached most of the planets and even landed on Mars. These probes tell scientists more about the solar system than we could ever learn with telescopes alone. In 1977, the Voyager 1 probe was sent into space for the purpose of exploring Jupiter and Saturn. Other probes were sent in the ears that followed. It took decades for these probes to reach the most distant planets and send back data about them.
Presently, Voyager 1 is the farthest manmade object from Earth; it is approaching the edge of the known solar system, and scientists hope it will gain new information about the mystifying region known as the Kuiper Belt.
The Voyager and other missions represent the limit of our physical reach within the cosmos. For now, we depend on the data they have collected to gain a better understanding of the outer solar system.
Beyond the orbit of Mars—which represents the planetary boundary between the inner and outer solar system—is a ring of asteroids orbiting the Sun. The asteroid belt contains rocky objects left over from the formation f the solar system. The asteroids range in size from hundreds of kilometers in diameter to dust-sized particles. The largest asteroid in the asteroid belt, Ceres, is considered a dwarf planet. It was the fi rst asteroid ever
discovered. By 2009, more than 450,000 asteroids had been discovered. While most asteroids orbit the sun in the main belt between Mars and Jupiter, some stray closer to Earth. These are called near-Earth asteroids (NEAs). Most NEAs are still far from Earth, but some actually cross Earth’s orbit, making them potentially deadly to life on Earth. Smaller-sized asteroids are often called meteoroids. This term is also often reserved for asteroids that collide with......

Asteroids, Meteorites, and Comets, Revised Edition (The Solar System)
Facts on File | 2010-08 | ISBN: 0816076960 | 288 pages | PDF | 6 MB

In the 19th century when asteroids were first discovered, the continuum of sizes in the solar system was not understood, because many people thought of the solar system as a Sun orbited by nine planets. However, as observers' abilities to see smaller and smaller bodies in the solar system improves because of better instrumentation, and as scientists continue trying to catalog the number of large asteroidal bodies that someday might collide with the Earth, the solar system is viewed as a collection of objects with a whole continuum of sizes. The Sun is orbited by material that ranges in size from grains of interplanetary dust to the giant Jupiter, and the planets are in turn orbited by moons. In a single, informative reference, "Asteroids, Meteorites, and Comets" discusses the solar system bodies that are not one of the nine planets or their moons. This massive collection of smaller bodies orbiting the Sun includes asteroids in the main asteroid belt as well as throughout the rest of the solar system, comets from both the Kuiper belt and from the much more distant Oort cloud, and the interplanetary dust left in their wakes. This volume describes the discoveries of various asteroids, along with the long centuries of argument over the nature of meteorites and impact craters. The orbits, sizes, and compositions of asteroids are also discussed, along with the correlations scientists have made between meteorite classes and asteroids. Perfect for those interested in understanding the science and history behind the exploration of asteroids, meteorites, and comets, this volume brings a whole new perspective to the study of celestial bodies.

Praise for the previous edition:
"...offer[s] detail-rich discussions..."—School Library Journal

"...a wealth of specific facts and detailed explanations...Teachers and students alike will find the organization and clarity conducive to understanding some difficult concepts, as well as locating specific facts."—VOYA

The field of asteroids, meteorites, and comets is moving so quickly that it has affected the whole of planetary science. The great numbers and significant sizes of the bodies found in the distant Kuiper belt have forced a redefinition of what a planet is, effectively demoting Pluto. This has changed the theories of solar system formation and inspired a new generation of space missions to the outer solar system.

Asteroids, Meteorites, and Comets, Revised Edition discusses the other solar system bodies outside of the eight planets and their moons. This exciting, full-color volume covers the massive collection of smaller bodies orbiting the Sun, including asteroids in the main asteroid belt and throughout the solar system, comets both from the Kuiper belt and from the much more distant Oort cloud, and the interplanetary dust left in their wakes.
