520    The word ℓ́ℓlandscapeℓ́ℓ can mean picture as well as 
       natural scenery. Recent advances in space exploration 
       imaging have allowed us to now have landscapes never 
       before possible, and this book collects some of the 
       greatest views and vistas of Mars, Venusℓ́ℓs Titan, Io and
       more in their full glory, with background information to 
       put into context the foreign landforms of our Solar 
       System. Here, literally, are 'other-worldly' visions of 
       strange new scenes, all captured by the latest technology 
       by landing and roving vehicles or by very low-flying 
       spacecraft. ℗ℓ There is more than scientific interest in 
       these views. They are also aesthetically beautiful and 
       intriguing, and Dr. Murdin in a final chapter compares 
       them to terrestrial landscapes in fine art. ℗ℓ Planetary 
       Vistas is a science book and a travel book across the 
       planets and moons of the Solar System for armchair space 
       explorers who want to be amazed and informed. This book 
       shows what future space explorers will experience, because
       these are the landscapes that astronauts and space 
       tourists will see.
