"Cassini at Saturn is essentially a revised version of Harland’s earlier book of the same name written before Cassini actually got to Saturn. As a reference book it is highly detailed. The book has plenty of black and white illustrations.

As a reference, this book is very useful." (Keith Cooper, Astronomy Now, December, )Brand: Springer New York. Cassini-Huygens was the most ambitious and successful space journey ever launched to the outer Solar System.

This book examines all aspects of the journey: its conception and planning; the lengthy political processes needed to make it a reality; the engineering and development required to build the spacecraft; its billion mile journey from Earth to the Ringed Planet and the amazing.

Cassini-Huygens spacecraft flew by Venus twice, in andon the way to its primary target, Saturn. During its brief passages near Venus, Cassini failed to corroborate signs of the existence of lightning in the planet’s atmosphere that had been observed by previous spacecraft.

Cassini–Huygens was a spacecraft, sent to study the planet Saturn, its rings, and its moons. The mission was made by NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and Italian Space Agency (ASI).

The spacecraft had two main parts: the Cassini orbiter and the Huygens was launched on Octo and entered into orbit around Saturn on July 1, It was the first spacecraft to orbit Manufacturer: Cassini: Jet Propulsion.
