"Dieses Buch informiert über neue Erkenntnisse aus der Erforschung des Sonnensystems der letzten zehn Jahre. … Die Herausgeber betrachten das Werk vor allem als Ressource für Studenten und Wissenschaftler, die sich über neuere Entwicklungen in der Planetenforschung informieren möchten. Es … richtet sich … an den fortgeschritteneren Leser.
