Planetary Vistas – the landscapes of other worlds by Paul Murdin
About 40 spacecraft have landed on the surface of other worlds in the solar system. Towering cliffs, empty deserts, freezing ice caps, erupting volcanoes and geysers feature in Paul Murdin’s new book, the scenery is out of this world!
Paul is making his second visit to Swindon, his talk on the moon was nearly ten years ago. He has worked on the operation of the Anglo-Dutch Isaac Newton Group of telescopes, has been a research scientist (studying supernovae, black holes and neutron stars) and a science administrator for the UK Government and the Royal Astronomical Society. He is a talented lecturer and writer on astronomy and has been honoured in the UK by the Queen for services to astronomy.
