By Sally Ride and Tam O'Shaughnessy
Launched in 1977, two tiny Voyager spacecraft made an extraordinary journey across billions of miles of space to give scientists their first close look at the solar system's most distant worlds. Pioneering astronaut Sally Ride and noted science writer Tam O'Shaughnessy re-create the Voyager adventure in this dramatically illustrated book. They describe the spacecraft's astonishing discoveries, from previously unseen rings around the giant planets to unimagined volcanoes on their moons and unbelievably violent storms in their atmospheres.
