Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is definetely a book suited for higher-learning unavailable on common bookstore shelves. If you have a serious interest about Jupiter and its major moons, this book supplies the best amount of accumulated knowledge about Europa. A beautiful cover, but only a handful of pictures inside with the majority being charts and false-color data. A mix of technical jargon and specific scientific terms doesn't make it a beginner's read, but both scientists and space enthusiasts would understand the data in this book.

This is an amazing book. It's huge! Packed with everything (for the most part) that is known about Europa. I am not anywhere near finished yet but I am loving the detail. One word of warning is that it is written by scientists for scientists. I'm not a scientist and some of the details make my eyes glaze over. I just kind of trudge through those parts. Not many pictures for those who want a coffee table book. This is a reference book and is for reading. Worth the price and then some.

As long as there is a mission to Europa itself taking place..this book will serve as an idea to what to expect when such mission is under taken. I haven't been through whole book yet but theories about its geology is fascinating...if you're interested..consider getting one ...

The Space Science Series published by the University of Arizona Press are now in its 36 years of publication, the first volume "Planets, Stars and Nebulae studied with Polarimetry" by T.Gehrels being published in 1974. Until Protostars and Planets IV (published in 2000), the books were published in a handy format, some titles however
counting over 1000 pages (!). This changed when "The Origin of the Earth and Moon" by R.M. Canup/K. Righter was
published in 2000. The format became larger and as a result the number of pages diminished substantially, bearing in mind however the high quality of the Series. I look forward to "Exoplanets", thee next title in the Series, which is scheduled to be published by the end of this year.
