on 9 January 2011
I have been looking for a long time for a space book that focuses on the technology and story behind the space probes that produce the images other astronomy books are adorned with. This book does this perfectly. Describing the conception and design of the major space probes along with how they reached their destination and all accompanied with useful info and great photos of the solary system. It is not overly technical but nor does the author treat you like a child by watering down the information too much.

If you want an astronmy book that provides scientific details behind the photos (something often missed in the newer astronomy books nowadays) and if the technology of the space probes behind the photos interests you without going to overly complex astrophysics teaching books, this is a great buy.
