Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Annotation: For billions of years Earth had only one satellite: the Moon. But in the decades since 1957, our planet has gained literally tens of thousands of new satellites. The modern world wouldn?t exist without them. Satellites help predict our weather; keep track of crops and forests; discover mineral deposits; map our planet; and provide communication, television, and GPS systems that guide everything from airliners to the family car. Author Ron Miller tells the story of these satellites, from their primitive beginnings to the complex, indispensable machines that orbit Earth today.

These books are packed with information about the history, technology, pioneers, and applications of their subjects. Busy pages include text, photographs, sidebars, and diagrams, all set against monochromatic backgrounds; some of the text and photos are common to both books. The information--from astronomy's beginnings in China to the next generation of space telescopes--is accurate and focused. Reading list, websites. Bib., glos., ind.
