About this title


Jupiter, named for the king of the gods in ancient Roman myths, is the largest planet in our Solar System. This enormous world dwarfs our own Earth. In fact, nearly everything about the planet is extreme—its atmosphere, its storms, its temperatures, and its collection of moons, where you can find fiery volcanoes, icy plains, and perhaps even salty oceans. Scientists have learned much about Jupiter and its moons in recent years, thanks to the spacecrafts that have explored them. Topics include Jupiter’s rings, fierce winds, swirling storms, enormous Great Red Spot, sixteen moons, and shepherd satellite, plus the Galileo mission to Jupiter.

From the Publisher:

Isaac Asimov's 21st CENTURY LIBRARY OF THE UNIVERSE draws upon the wit, clarity of style, enthusiasm, and enormous number of facts about space found in previous landmark editions of The Library of the Universe. This new, revised edition provides substantially updated information to keep young astronomers in step with current details about the wonders of the Universe.
