520    "This book is filled with the knowledge about our solar 
       system that resulted from all this exploration, whether by
       spacecraft or by telescopes both in space and earth-bound.
       All of this new knowledge is based on discoveries made in 
       the interim by scientist-explorers who have followed their
       inborn human imperative to explore and to understand. Many
       old mysteries, misunderstandings, and fears that existed 
       50 years ago about what lay beyond the Earth have been 
       eliminated. We now know the major features of the 
       landscape in our cosmic backyard and can look forward to 
       the adventure, excitement, and new knowledge that will 
       result from more in-depth exploration by today's 
       spacecraft, such as those actually exploring the surface 
       of these faraway places, including the Huygens Titan 
       lander and the Mars Exploration rovers, doing things that 
       were unimaginable before the Space Age began. The 
       Encyclopedia of the Solar System is filled with images, 
       illustrations, and charts to aid in understanding. Every 
       object in the solar system is covered by at least one 
       chapter. Other chapters are devoted to the relationships 
       among the objects in the solar system and with the galaxy 
       beyond. The processes that operate on solar system objects,
       in their atmospheres, on their surfaces, in their 
       interiors, and interactions with space itself are all 
       described in detail. There are chapters on how we explore 
       and learn about the solar system and about the 
       investigations used to make new discoveries. And there are
       chapters on the history of solar system exploration and 
       the missions that have carried out this enterprise. All 
       written by an international set of world-class scientists 
       using rigorous yet easy-to-understand prose"--Provided by
