Gibilisco S. Astronomy Demystified: A Self-Teaching Guide
McGraw-Hill, 2003. - 592 pages.

For example, we’ll take a tour of the entire Solar System, riding hybrid space, aircraft into the atmospheres and, in some cases, to the surfaces of celestial bodies other than Earth. Some of the details of this trip constitute fiction, but the space vehicles and navigational mechanics are based on realistic technology and astronomical facts.
