Well, maybe 'coming soon' is a slight exaggeration, but it's coming. Cambridge has accepted my Mars Atlas proposal, so I've put up a web page about it with a few samples of the content. If we go the two volume route the first will be sent to them late in 2011 and published about a year later.

There's some uncertainty about this. How long will MER continue? How long will MSL operate? I can't judge the length of volume 2 yet. But if we have a good long journey ahead of us still for Opportunity - and who knows for Spirit? - and a long MSL mission then each volume will extend to about 350 pages with a convenient break just before MER.

I've just finished a draft of the Viking 1 section. Viking site selection plus all of Viking 1 is about 55 pages. Viking 2 might push that up near 100 pages just for that mission.

Anyway, still up in the air.

Phil

You're right, I shouldn't have mentioned it until a month before it was due out.

Off topic as far as unmanned spaceflight is concerned but I'd hate for people to miss this. I thought people might be interested to know about "A MAN ON THE MOON" author Andrew Chaikin's new book, "VOICES FROM THE MOON" which features some rather stunning new versions of much loved old Apollo images. He was good enough to let me use one of his pictures - and answer some questions about how he made them - on my blog, so I think it is relevent to UMSF. If you would like to know more, please have a look at:

ATLAS OF THE GALILEAN SATELLITES
Paul Schenk ( LPI )
Complete color global maps and high-resolution mosaics of Jupiter’s four large moons – Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto – are compiled for the first time in this important atlas. The satellites are revealed as four visually striking and geologically diverse planetary bodies: Io’s volcanic lavas and plumes and towering mountains; Europa’s fissured ice surface; the craters, fractures and polar caps of Ganymede; and the giant impact basins, desiccated plains and icy pinnacles of Callisto. Featuring images taken from the recent Galileo mission, this atlas is a comprehensive mapping reference guide for researchers. It contains 65 global and regional maps, nearly 250 high-resolution mosaics, and images taken at high resolutions….

Available by February 2010 (ISBN-13: 9780521868358)

The impact of HST on European Astronomy
Editor F. Duccio Macchetto
Major contributions facilitated by the Hubble Space Telescope range from the study of nearby planets, the processes of star and planet formation, the stellar and interstellar components of galaxies, the discovery that most, if not all, galactic nuclei harbor a massive black hole that profoundly affects their evolution, to the realisation that the universe as a whole is undergoing acceleration as a result of a yet unknown form of "dark energy".
This volume offers a broad perspective of the advancements made possible by the HST over its almost two decades of operation and
emphasises their impact on European astronomical research. These proceedings of 41st in ESLAB series of the European Space Agency collect the oral and poster papers that were presented and discussed during the meeting.

For US customers, it's much cheaper on Amazon; $23 plus shipping vs. $37 plus straight from U of N Press.

Terrific news; been waiting for this one to come out!

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
