Describes the Voyager missions and what they revealed about the outer planets of our solar system
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Gr. 4-6. One among many books presenting the Voyager missions to explore the solar system, this highlights aspects of the space flights such as how the Voyager craft were powered, what messages from Earth they carried, and what was known about a planet before and after they flew past. The writing excels at conveying the excitement felt by those involved in the missions as the encounters took place. Usually divided into self-contained, double-page spreads, the book includes a wide variety of styles in illustration, from intelligently designed diagrams to paintings and drawings to unsatisfying photo-composites to photographs of space, which sometimes underlie the text and occasionally make it difficult to read. Intriguing supplementary material for larger collections. Carolyn Phelan
