This book attempts to broadly deal with the mechanics and dynamics of the Solar System with additional emphasis on celestial mechanics. Important planetary laws and theories like the Geocentric Theory, Kepler’s Laws, Newton’s law of gravitation, the catastrophic theories of Moulten, Russel and Schmidt, and the nebular hypothesis of Kant and Laplace are clearly explained. The book also deals with space dynamics and rocket propulsion, solar activities, lunar studies, small bodies and extraterrestrial life.
