About the Author

Fred Taylor is Halley Professor of Physics at the University of Oxford, and a Distinguished Visiting Scientist in the Earth and Space Sciences Division at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. His research interests include the physics of planetary atmospheres; experimental methods for studying atmospheres; and the theory of atmospheric radiation and atmospheric molecular spectroscopy. Professor Taylor has worked with NASA or the European Space Agency on missions to Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and Titan.


'Taylor has produced a useful and fascinating book that I can recommend to anyone interested in the planets.' C. R. Kitchin, Astronomy Now 'Asteroids, comets and meteorites provide the basis for theories about how the more highly processed, bigger objects of the solar system came to be, and Taylor covers this territory well.' Martin Ince, Times Higher Education Supplement 'This photographic guide will be of interest to anybody with a fascination for the planets, from the amateur to the professional astronomer.' Richard Taylor, Spaceflight '... a family album of revealing photographs of our many previously unseen and mysterious neighbors ... an arresting reminder of the stunning collection of photos and photo mosaics that have been amassed from 30 years of solar-system exploration and a compelling record of the journeys of Pathfinder, Galileo, Magellan, Clementine, and the rest of man's team of continuing explorers.' Brian Anderson, Lunar and Planetary Information
