The Story of Space: Probes to the Planets

Written by Steve Parker

Part of the The Story of Space Series

The Story of Space: Probes to the Planets Synopsis

Every planet in our solar system and some of the moons and other space objects have been visited by at least one probe and in the future, more probes and craft will visit these worlds in our endeavour to learn about space and the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Some probes, such at the Verena 13 probe that landed on Venus, were designed to last just a few minutes. Others, such as the Voyager probes, are still sending data back to Earth from far out towards the edge of our Solar System. Each probe is designed to do a unique job and this book reveals the genius of their design. Six books that reveal the thrilling journeys, triumphs and disasters that men and women have experienced in the exploration of our universe. These books examine the mind-blowing technologies involved in space endeavours and tells the all too human stories of some of the key figures.
