Planetology Talk — University of Houston, Clear Lake, Jan. 9, 2009 December 9, 2008

Posted by skywalking1 in Space.

I’m looking forward to discussing with Houstonians my new book, Planetology, at the University of Houston, Clear Lake campus on Friday, Jan. 9 at 7 pm. An event announcement is here. Planetology (Jones and Stofan, National Geographic Books, 2008) appeared in stores on Nov. 18, 2008.

My talk will focus on the how the latest imagery of our family of planets, and the information it contains about the forces that shape the planets, compels us to explore the solar system and establish ourselves on other worlds. The motivation? Knowledge, of course, but more important — survival.

I’ll be signing copies of Planetology (written with my friend and colleague Ellen Stofan) after the talk. Join me for a spectacular visual tour of the worlds that have taught us so much about our own Earth.
