9780816051960: Jupiter And Saturn (The Solar System)

In antiquity, Jupiter and Saturn formed a part of mankind's understanding of the gods, but toward the end of the Renaissance in the 17th century, the invention of the telescope allowed scientists to reform their ideas about these orbital bodies in the solar system. Because of their immense size and prominence, Jupiter and Saturn were immediate targets for observation by early astronomers. In a single, informative reference, "Jupiter and Saturn" discusses what is known and still unknown about Jupiter 200 years later in the development of telescopes and astronomy, as well as Saturn's interior structure, heat production, and magnetic field. This volume also explores the orbital movements of Jupiter in the solar system and its internal and external composition, movements, and temperatures, as well as Saturn's extensive ring system. Perfect for those interested in understanding the science and history behind the exploration of Jupiter and Saturn, this volume provides a detailed look into the geological profiles of these planets as they relate to the rest of the solar system.
