Description

From our small world we have gazed upon the cosmic ocean for thousands of years. Ancient astronomers observed points of light that appeared to move among the stars. They called these objects planets, meaning wanderers, and named them after Roman deities -- Jupiter, king of the gods; Mars, the god of war; Mercury, messenger of the gods; Venus, the goddess of love and beauty; and Saturn, father of Jupiter and god of agriculture. The stargazers also observed comets with sparkling tails, and meteors -- or shooting stars apparently falling from the sky.

  • Not very helpful

    The book is disappointing insofar as what is current known about the solar system and the scant amount of information included. The moons are not presented at all. Basically it's a ripoff.
  • Awesome textbook.

    Really great, it explains a lot fast and it's awesome that textbooks are on the iPad.
