In a treatment that keeps the math content in a separate orbit, this edition emphasizes recent advances related to Martian exploration (e.g. the Pathfinder landing). From a comparative planetology approach, a scientist at the Planetary Science Institute in Tucson applies the basic cosmic concepts introduced to unresolved questions about the red planet. Features include b&w illustrations and a planetary data table. Previously published in 1972 and 1983; the date of the textbook's last iteration is not given.
