Overview





Full-color photographs from the NASA files. Astronaut Sally Ride describes

one of NASA's greatest accomplishments: the 12-year interplanetary flight of

the Voyager space probes. Ride gives an insider's account of the

mission, the spacecraft, and some of their truly remarkable

discoveries—including previously unseen rings around the planets and

unsuspected volcanoes on the solar system's moons. "Libraries with a healthy

demand for books on the solar system will find this a good addition to the

collection."—Booklist.




Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-4-- A simply written account of what the Voyager probes taught us about the four giant planets and their respective rings and moons, matched with big, bright, well-chosen, full-color photographs. The writers note when computer enhancement has been used, and carefully relate pictures and text. A late entrant in a crowded field, this is an acceptable introduction to the mission, although the level of detail is a bit below that in Apfel's Voyager to the Planets (Clarion, 1991). The prominent author may attract some interest from young readers conversant with our history in space. --John Peters, New York Pub . Lib .
