Exploring Saturn Dan Bortolotti
Published by Firefly Books, 2003.
"Saturn may be a cold, faraway ball of gas, but its beauty has made it a unique part of our world." This book's color photos, diagrams, and illustrations convey the beauty of the sixth planet from the sun, while the text explores many fascinating facets of the ringed planet. Learn about Saturn's composition, rings, and moons; and find out how scientists measure planetary distances. While the book gives a comprehensive history of how scientists through the ages have explored Saturn's mysteries, it also devotes much attention to the Cassini-Huygens mission, which will observe and explore Saturn until 2008. The book includes resources for more information as well as charts of the ring system and Saturn's satellites.
