This is a near fine (almost like new) hardcover with dust jacket. 1993 Scientific America Publishing. This copy is crisp and clean inside and out.

Exploring Planetary Worlds incorporates space investigations into a fascinating portrayal of the planets and associated satellites, rings, asteroids, and comets. The book focuses not only on the processes that shaped each planets distinctive character, but also on what the individuality of the planets tells us about the Earth and the origin and development of the solar system. The planets are grouped by shape, size, atmospheres, magnetic fields, and other characteristics. The book also discusses the role of collisions between comets, asteroids, and the Earth in shaping the history of life on the planet.
