Buy new or used from an indie through our partner Biblio:
Mission Jupiter brings us the exciting story of the Galileo mission to investigate Jupiter. The noted astronomer Daniel Fischer, co-author of Hubble: A New Window to the Universe and Hubble Revisited: New Images from the Discovery Machine, takes us behind the scenes to present the mission's background, the problems it encountered early on and how these were resolved. Fischer then weaves together the many disparate facts learned about Jupiter and its satellites into a coherent description of this most fascinating planet. Beautifully illustrated and well written, Mission Jupiter shows up space exploration at its best and conveys the essential science clearly and vividly.
