MEDIA REVIEWS
"Space Science is now a remarkably wide ranging subject, with enormous advances having been made in the last decade in solar, planetary and X-ray astronomy, not to mention remote sensing, the Earth's upper atmosphere and it's interaction with the solar wind. Consequently, collecting together graduate level reviews in all these areas was a challenging project in which the editors have succeeded admirably. Exploiting the wide expertise available at MSSL, there are up-to-date articles on current research which will be of value to any space science graduate student. Because of the basic physics (e.g. plasma physics, magnetohydrodynamics, quantum physics) that is included in each chapter, the book could also serve as the basis for an advanced undergraduate course in space science. I will certainly recommend it to students here at Southampton." Professor Phil Charles University of Southampton "It brings together the various space science disciplines in one volume, and will bebefit a wide audience, particularly students starting their graduate studies."
