Editorial Reviews


"The Scientific Exploration of Venus is a fascinating book that tells us everything about our understanding of our neighbouring planet, from ancient times to modern exploration. In a clear and brilliant style, the author leads us along all aspects of this quest, from the early images and the ground-based spectroscopic observations to the achievements of the space era. Chapter after chapter, we learn how our knowledge of the planet has improved, what are the open issues, and finally what the future of the planet might be. This very complete and well-documented book about our sister planet will be a reference for not just scientists and students, but also for anyone interested in the future evolution of our own planet."
Dr Thérèse Encrenaz, Observatoire de Paris-Meudon, and author of Life Beyond Earth

"This is a comprehensive and well-written account of the science and exploration of Venus written by the right person at the right time. Fred Taylor has been deeply involved in missions to Earth's sister planet since the 1970s, and his masterful and accessible synthesis of our growing knowledge over the years includes the first full account of the recent groundbreaking Venus Express mission, and concludes with some imaginative speculations about ambitious possibilities for far future exploration."
Dr David Grinspoon, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and author of Venus Revealed

Book Description

A leading researcher of Venus explains what we know through our investigations of Earth's 'twin' planet. He addresses the question "why isn't Venus more like Earth?" Scientifically rigorous, yet written in a friendly non-technical style, this volume is a broad introduction for students, and astronomy and space enthusiasts.
