Book Description

In May 1993, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) updated its 1991 publication, “Our Solar System at a Glance.” This Kindle edition, equivalent in length to a physical book of approximately 24 pages, contains the complete text of that 1993 edition. Learn about the Sun, the Moon, the planets and their moons, asteroids, and comets.

Sample passage:
Venus’s landscape is dominated by volcanic features, faults and impact craters. Huge areas of the surface show evidence of multiple periods of lava flooding with flows lying on top of previous ones. An elevated region named Ishtar Terra is a lava-filled basin as large as the United States. At one end of this plateau sits Maxwell Montes, a mountain the size of Mount Everest. Scarring the mountain’s flank is a 100-kilometer (62-mile) wide, 2.5-kilometer (1.5-mile) deep impact crater named Cleopatra. (Almost all features on Venus are named for women; Maxwell Montes, Alpha Regio and Beta Regio are the exceptions.) Craters survive on Venus for perhaps 400 million years because there is no water and very little wind erosion.

About the author:
Established by President Eisenhower in 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is a U.S. government agency responsible for the nation’s civilian space program and for aeronautics and aerospace research.
