"Mapping the Planets is a lavishly illustrated full-colour hardback, giving a fascinating account of the planets in our solar system and the technologies that have allowed us to map these cosmic objects. Anne Rooney takes readers on a journey through the expansive history of planetary exploration, from Ancient Babylonian's charting the movement of Venus, to Galileo's discovery of Saturn's moons through telescope, to the modern use of rovers, flybys and spectroscopy. These histories are accompanied by a glorious selection of maps, drawings, paintings and high-resolution photographs, demonstrating how the mapping of objects in our solar system has been central to scientific discovery."
