Rezensionen
From the reviews: "This work primarily concerns itself with the discovery and subsequent naming of our current tally of planetary satellites; a tally incessantly growing. ... the book practically doubles as a literary study of myths and legends. ... This book immediately becomes an essential reference work on the Solar System and a fitting memorial to its author." (Steve Ringwood, Astronomy Now, April, 2010) "Book by historian Jurgen Blunck (1935-2008) beautifully sets essential facts about the discovery of Solar System moons and planetary rings in proper historical and mythological context. It is a worthy successor to such works as his highly accurate and comprehensive study of the history ... . There is much useful information, and Solar System Moons is a volume that can be dipped into at random or read in its entirety. ... I do urge librarians to obtain it given its accuracy and its comprehensive nature." (Richard McKim, The Observatory, Vol. 130 (1215), April, 2010)
