This e-book used to be maybe of a few worth five years in the past. I anticipated that this booklet will be greater than an outline of web pages and courses and comprise a few 'how-to' info. Pages 293 via 482 have been used to explain what was once at the cd.

There are greater astronomy books available in the market and the software program and site descriptions accurately belong on the web.

There is still a lot to learn about the planets of the solar system and their moons. This chapter will explore some of the online and software resources available for discovering what we do know about the solar system. Given the dynamic nature of this research, with new images returned literally every day by spacecraft such as Galileo (which is in orbit around Jupiter), we emphasize online resources that that are frequently updated with new information and images. We’ll still look at software programs for learning more about the solar system offline.
