by D.E. Hughes, J.K. Bowker
Publisher: Lunar and Planetary Institute 1971
The Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Moon by Bowker and Hughes (NASA SP-206) is considered the definitive reference manual to the global photographic coverage of the Moon.

The theme of this book is the study of basaltic volcanism on the terrestrial planets as a stage in planetary evolution: to use the eruption of lava from the interior of a planet as evidence of the thermal and chemical processes of the planet.
Mars Science Laboratory is a robotic space probe mission to Mars launched by NASA, which landed a rover Curiosity. The objectives include investigating Mars' habitability, studying its climate and geology, and collecting data for a manned mission.
