Synopsis

The Solar System by Linda T Elkins-Tanton

The Solar System set explores the relationship between the Sun - the center of the solar system - and its orbiters, including Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, as well as asteroids, meteorites, and comets. Space missions that helped the scientific community gain a more thorough understanding of solar system bodies are introduced in each volume, along with images and discussions related to each particular subject. Whereas some books in the set focus on universal unknowns and the results of space missions, others emphasize the importance of viewing the solar system as a continuum of sizes and types of bodies. Each book discusses the role of planets or other small bodies as recorders of the formation of the solar system. This six-title set examines the various solar system bodies and encourages a more complex understanding of the many sizes and types of bodies that orbit the Sun. Each volume will also include an eight-page insert of full-color photographs pertaining to each topic. This set is a must-have for libraries serving students interested in gaining a detailed perspective on how the universe was formed and how each planet and universal body relates to the Sun and the rest of the universe.
