Sixth From The Sun!

This amazing coffee-table book allows you to get up-close and personal with Saturn and some of its many moons. It took a collaborative effort by three people to get this book into print: Laura Lovett- graphic design; Joan Horvath -aeronautical engineer and Dr Jeff Cuzzi- astronomy, Saturn and planetary ring specialist.

Sixth From The Sun!

This amazing coffee-table book allows you to get up-close and personal with Saturn and some of its many moons. It took a collaborative effort by three people to get this book into print: Laura Lovett- graphic design; Joan Horvath -aeronautical engineer and Dr Jeff Cuzzi- astronomy, Saturn and planetary ring specialist. Horvath starts out the text portion of Saturn: A New View with a brief look at the history of observational astronomy, the telescope, the space program and the people that made it happen. Next Cuzzi gives you an in depth article on Saturn, its family of moons and its famous rings. Lovett ends the book with an essay on The Art In Science. But the main thrust of the book is, of course, the pictures. And what glorious pictures they are! Most of the images are from the Cassini-Huygens history making mission. You get close up views of the planet as well as some panoramic shots that will take your breath away. Detailed shots of the rings, taken from all angles, illustrate the dynamics of how this mini solar system works. Close up views of Saturn's major moons like Titan, Enceladus and Hyperion will give you clues as to how violent space can be. Saturn has always been one of the most popular planets and for many years was thought to be the only one with rings. We now know that all the "gas giants" have rings. But, no matter, Saturn is still the "poster child" of the Solar System. Over the years many people have contributed to the "art" of astronomy; Galileo was the first to see Saturn's "handles" (as he called the rings), Percival Lowell was sure he saw canals on Mars, Edgar Rice Burroughs's adventures on "Barsoom" and from the pen of H.G. Wells: War Of The Worlds. Now, modern science and technology will take you "Where no man has gone before". And, with these stunning portraits, Saturn:A New View will reveal the undreamed secrets of the Ringed Planet.

On funds drawn from a Christmas gift card to Borders Bookstore, I purchased this wonderful hardbound volume: my first official coffee table book!

Filled with awe-inspiring images taken by the nuclear-powered Cassini space probe orbiting Saturn, and accompanied by informative text, this is a great coffee table book for space enthusiasts to dress their living rooms with. Now all I need is a coffee table to put it on.

An absolutely beautiful book! The images of the ringed world are breathtaking. The book tells the story of the Cassini spacecraft and its smaller companion lander Huygens. The information and images relayed back to Earth will forever change how we look and think about the sixth planet, Saturn.

Wonderful pictures, plus insights into rings, moons, water and organic chemistry on other worlds.
