Riassunto: Shrouded by the thick clouds of hot, dense atmosphere, the planet Venus - Earth's closest neighbour in space - remained mysterious until recent decades. Today, with data from contemporary observations and from Russian and American spacecraft, Venus has moved into sharper focus. This comprehensive book provides an up-to-date and detailed analysis of the nature of Venus. The authors, experts in planetary science from Russia and the United States, examine all the principal aspects of Venus, with particular attention paid to the planet's formation, the development of a runaway greenhouse effect, and Venus' evolution into a planet completely different from others in our solar system. Integrating data from Galileo, Magellan, Pioneer-Venus, Venera sand other space missions, this book summarizes the history of Venus, covers the atmosphere, geomorphology and tectonic history of the planet, and considers its geology. The authors offer various theories to explain evolutionary processes in the solar system and to unveil such mysteries as Venus' slow retrograde rotation, its lack of magnetic field, and and its bizarre atmospheric dynamics. Illustrations include images of Venus' surface, some of which were obtained by Soviet spacecraft.
From Library Journal:
Both authors are experts in the study of planetary science: Marov was the chief scientist for the Soviet Union's Venera missions, and Grinspoon was funded by NASA to study Venus. Their book is a comprehensive study of that planet, beginning with the ancient astronomers and continuing through the Galileo, Magellan, Pioneer-Venus, Venera, and other space missions. Included are 226 excellent illustrations, some of which are from the Soviet Venera missions and have not previously been available to English readers. With an extensive bibliography and documentation, the book's intended readership is specialists; however, educated lay readers can learn much from the readable text.
