KIRKUS REVIEW

In straightforward terms, the author,- an expert in the field, describes the whys and hows of the expedition made by the information-gathering Mariner II. Aided by many photographs, he follows the detailed steps of the launching, and then discusses the tension packed scientific stations which followed the long journey and kept daily records of data received. The slim volume will be of interest to the scientifically minded and engineering-bound.
