Saturn is the crown jewel of the solar system. Admired for centuries for its beauty--a pale gold ball surrounded by gleaming white rings--modern astronomers have discovered that Saturn is one of the most amazing of all the planets. From the mysteriesMoreSaturn is the crown jewel of the solar system. Admired for centuries for its beauty--a pale gold ball surrounded by gleaming white rings--modern astronomers have discovered that Saturn is one of the most amazing of all the planets. From the mysteries of its glorious rings to its dozens of unique moons, one of which is large enough to be a world in its own right, the story of Saturn is also the story of astronomy and the discovery of the solar system. The Worlds Beyond series visits bodies in space, from their formation billions of years ago to the present day. Using the most up-to-date knowledge of space science and observational data, Ron Miller explores the evolution, composition, and landscape--including NASA photos, original diagrams, and striking illustrations. Publishing two titles per season- other title this season is MERCURY AND PLUTO, with MARS and ASTEROIDS, COMETS, AND METEORS to follow in spring 2004.
