The Planets

Lecture by Dava Sobel


Dava Sobel is the author of 'Longitude', a prize-winning international bestseller, and 'Galileo's Daughter', which was shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize.

The Planets Dava Sobel will talk about her latest book 'The Planets' in which she tells the human story of the nine planets of our solar system. This groundbreaking new work traces the lives of each member of our solar family, from myth and history, astrology and science fiction, to the latest data from the modern era's robotic space probes. Whether revealing what hides behind Venus's cocoon of acid clouds, describing Neputune's beauty, or capturing the excitement at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory when the first pictures from Cassini at Saturn were recently beamed to earth, Dava Sobel's tour of the solar system is filled with science, history, biography and storytelling.
