AUTHOR

Bond, Peter

SUMMARY

"This book recounts the epic saga of how we Earth lings have reached for the stars in an effort to understand our place in the Solar System and the multitude of worlds that populate our corner of the Universe. As award-winning author Peter Bond reminds us, the story of our exploration of the heavens began thousands of years ago, with naked-eye observations by the earliest scientists and philosophers. Over the centuries, as our knowledge and understanding inexorably broadened and deepened, there were many wrong turns, misconceptions, disagreements, and seemingly insurmountable obstacles to understanding. Yet the overarching story culminates with the determined observers, brilliant thinkers, and courageous explorers, scientists, and engineers who have brought us, particularly over the last five decades, into a second great age of human discovery."--BOOK JACKET.Bond, Peter is the author of 'Distant Worlds Milestones in Planetary Exploration', published 2007 under ISBN 9780387402123 and ISBN 0387402128.
