The Planet, Rings and Satellites
Auteur: E.D. Miner


This is a topic of special interest in terms of recent and continuing discoveries of giant planets circling other stars. This second edition should be considered the definitive detailed description of what we know about Uranus.Uranus: The Planet, Rings and Satellites is couched in terms an interested non-specialist can readily understand, but contains the level of organization and details which make it a valuable resource for planetary scientists. Significant new data about the planet and its system have been collected by Hubble Space Telescope since the Voyager 2 flyby. Although planetary scientists continue to mull over the Voyager data, considerable changes in our understanding of Uranus have occurred since the first edition. This second edition includes comprehensive tables summarizing current knowledge of the satellites and ring systems, compares the planetary magnetic fields, and is generously illustrated with Voyager images of Uranus, its satellites and rings.
