Inhaltsangabe zu "Moore on Mercury"
Mercury has been the target of professional astronomers through the ages, and then of space probes, the most recent of which – MESSENGER (MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry and Ranging) – will go into orbit around Mercury in 2011.
Amateur astronomers can see Mercury and its ever-changing phases all year, and sometimes watch it transit the Sun – the next transit is in November 2006, followed by one in May 2016.
In his inimitable, easy-going style, Patrick Moore describes Mercury, the professional astronomers who have observed it over the centuries, amateur observations, and the past, present and future space missions to this extraordinary world.
