A clearly written and compelling account of the Space Age, the book includes: Organized into twelve chapters that provide in-depth accounts of the individual planets, our Moon, and the asteroids and comets, Bond’s text shows how- despite its occasional setbacks- the great enterprise of planetary exploration can justifiably be regarded as one of the great triumphs of human civilization.
