Résumé

The Cambridge Planetary Handbook is an invaluable reference text, bringing together key facts and data on the planets and their satellites, discoverers and researchers. It summarizes many centuries' worth of data, from the earliest observations of the planets through to the most recent space probe findings. The author discusses the history, mythology and theories of the objects in our solar system, and provides a comprehensive information section with accurate and up-to-date data on the planets. The book contains excellent photographs and explanatory illustrations, along with numerous historical drawings from Galileo, Huygens, Herschel and other astronomers. This book is a must for all astronomy enthusiasts, as well as academic researchers, students and teachers. Those unfamiliar with the sky will find this is a user-friendly guide written in clear, non-technical language.
