Product Description

Astronomy Now presents Saturn: Exploring the Ringed Planet, a 196-page special edition devoted to the most beautiful planet in the Solar System

Inside, we explore Saturn and its many moons, delve into the planet’s interior and run the rule over its wonderful rings. We discover the landing site on the moon Titan, fly through the water-ice geysers that spray out from Enceladus and climb the mountains of Iapetus. We learn of Cassini’s struggles to cross the 1.4 billion kilometres to Saturn and find out what its ultimate fate will be, crashing into the giant planet itself.

This stunning space adventure is told through amazing high-resolution pictures of Saturn and its moons taken by Cassini and beamed back to Earth. This is the breathtaking story of the greatest mission of planetary exploration ever undertaken.
