Although this book is stated to be for middle and high schoolers, it is the only work of its kind on Jupiter out there (and that's possibly true for Saturn as well, but can't say).

Temporarily out of stock. Although this book is stated to be for middle and high schoolers, it is the only work of its kind on Jupiter out there (and that's possibly true for Saturn as well, but can't say). That in itself makes it valuable, but the quality of the writing and clarity of the presentation hits it out of the park for all ages.

In antiquity, Jupiter and Saturn formed a part of mankind's understanding of the gods, but toward the end of the Renaissance in the 17th century, the invention of the telescope allowed scientists to reform their ideas about these orbital bodies in the solar system. This volume also explores the orbital movements of Jupiter in the solar system and its internal and external composition, movements, and temperatures, as well as Saturn's extensive ring system.

Jupiter and Saturn are the two largest planets in the solar system and the first two gas giant planets encountered when moving away from the Sun. They are both immensely complicated systems not unlike miniature solar systems on their own: Jupiter has 63 known moons and its own ring system, whereas Saturn is famous for its rings and 62 known moons. Astronomers are finding with some regularity new, distant moons orbiting each of these planets, so their number of known satellites continues to grow. Jupiter and Saturn, Revised Edition presents comprehensive and up-to-date information on these two fascinating planets in our solar system. Divided in two parts, this full-color resource discusses how these planets were discovered, basic data on the planets, new observations and current research findings, and much more.
