Living Among Giants: Exploring and Settling the Outer Solar System
by Michael Carroll
The outer Solar System is rich in resources and may be the very best region in which to search for life beyond Earth. In fact, it may ultimately be the best place for Earthlings to set up permanent shop.

This book surveys the feasibility of that prospect, covering the fascinating history of exploration that kicks off our adventure into the outer Solar System. All the latest research is included, rounded out by an extrapolation of future human exploration and exploitation of Jupiter and beyond.

While other books provide surveys of the outer planets, Carroll approaches it from the perspective of potential future human exploration and settlement, using insights from today's leading scientists in the field. These experts take us to targets such as Titan, Triton, Enceladus, Iapetus, and Europa, and within the atmospheres of the gas and ice giants. Through his engaging prose and wonderful art you will experience the thrill of discovery awaiting those who journey through the giant worlds and their moons.
