  One of our favorite books about space is V.R. Space Explorers, Titan’s Black Cat. Author Bruce Betts is a space explorer and planetary expert. He is the Chief Scientist at The Planetary Society, the world’s largest non-profit space organization. The organization focuses on education, advocacy, and funding to support innovative programs that further space exploration. We spoke to .   Space exploration is an inherently optimistic enterprise. An active space program raises expectations and fosters collective hope. As part of the Planetary Society team, you can help kickstart the most exciting time for US space exploration since the moon landings. With the upcoming election only months away our time to act is now.

Outer Planet Exploration. In , Pioneer 10 became the first spacecraft to visit one of the outer planets. Pioneer 10 and 11 were the first probes to investigate space beyond the orbit of Mars. Jupiter and Saturn flybys only. Voyager 2, however, was still healthy and was on a trajectory that allowed additional planetary encounters.   Don't expect some romanticized deep thought provoking verbiage on space exploration. This book is about how things get done, with a few personal snip-its of personal emotions and thoughts during the process, throw into the mix. Also, keep in mind this book is written from the perspective of one man, and only about the teams he was on.

22 rows  This is a list of space probes that have left Earth orbit (or were launched with that intention but failed), organized by their planned destination. It includes planetary probes, solar probes, and probes to asteroids and comets, but excludes lunar missions, which are listed separately at List of lunar probes and List of Apollo (such as gravity assists) that were incidental to.

A space probe is a robotic spacecraft that does not orbit Earth, but instead, explores further into outer space. A space probe may approach the Moon; travel through interplanetary space; flyby, orbit, or land on other planetary bodies; or enter interstellar space.

The space agencies of the USSR (now Russia and Ukraine), the United States, the European Union, Japan, China, India, and Israel. The peaks and valleys of planetary exploration over the last five decades are chronicled in Space Philippe Séguéla provides details about every major space probe—defined here as a robotic spacecraft that travels beyond Earth to explore other bodies in our solar system—flown by the US, USSR/Russia, Europe, and others sincewhen the Soviets flew the first successful.

Depending on just how far your interest in space probes will go, you might also wish to join The Planetary Society, one of the largest space groups in the world dedicated to planetary exploration. Their periodical, THE PLANETARY REPORT, details the latest space probe missions.

Write to The Planetary Society, 65 North Catalina Avenue.Mark Wolverton has studied the Pioneer project extensively, both while publishing several articles on the missions and during a science writing fellowship at NASA Ames Research Center, the birthplace of the Pioneer probes.

His articles have appeared in American Heritage of Invention & Technology, Skeptical Inquirer, Quest: This History of Spaceflight, and American History.The Pioneer missions were important milestones in the exploration of space.

The book is a nice, concise and well-written history of the Pioneer program, from the early and unsuccessful probes flown by the military in the immediate post-Sputnik era to the trail-blazing missions to Jupiter, Saturn and Venus.
