Our immediate neighbourhood in space is stranger than we think. On Jupiter winds reach speeds of over 6,000 mph. Venus has been viewed as a 'planet-wide catastrophe...a thoroughly nasty place'. Ice volcanoes on Neptune. Saturn, in addition to its rings, has 30 moons - 12 of them discovered only last year. In addition to these peculiarities it now appears that the Solar System may also harbour life on Mars and the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. As our exploration of the Solar System gathers momentum this book explores what we have discovered already, what we might discover next, and explains the technologies, from telescopes to robot probes, which gather this information.
