About the Book

"Are the Planets Inhabited?" is a fascinating paintings authored by means of E. Walter Maunder, a British astronomer and astrophysicist. In this idea-frightening book, Maunder delves into the age-old query of whether different celestial bodies within our solar gadget, specifically the planets, could probably harbor extraterrestrial existence. Maunder methods this question with a mix of clinical rigor and speculative curiosity. He carefully examines the situations on numerous planets, thinking about elements like their atmospheres, temperatures, and surface functions. He explores the possibility of existence as we recognize it and the potential for organisms tailored to extreme environments. While Maunder acknowledges the challenges of interplanetary journey and verbal exchange, he encourages readers to ponder the vastness of the cosmos and the potential for lifestyles past Earth. Although "Are the Planets Inhabited?" was written within the early 20th century and reflects the medical know-how of its time, it stays a great work inside the records of astrobiology and the search for extraterrestrial lifestyles. Maunder's e book serves as a historic image of humanity's early forays into the exploration of our solar machine and the iconic human interest about the opportunity of life on different worlds.

About Author


Edward Walter Maunder was an English astronomer who lived from 12 April 1851 to 21 March 1928. His research into sunspots and the solar magnetic cycle led to the discovery of the Maunder Minimum, which lasted from 1645 to 1715. Maunder was born in London in 1851, the youngest child of a Wesleyan Society minister. He studied at King's College London but did not graduate. To fund his studies, he obtained a job in a London bank. Maunder returned to the Royal Observatory in 1873 as a spectroscopic assistant. He married Edith Hannah Bustin in 1875, and they had six children: four sons (one died in infancy) and two girls. Following Edith's death in 1888, he met Annie Scott Dill Russell (later Annie Russell Maunder, 1868-1947), a mathematician and astronomer trained at Cambridge's Girton College, with whom he cooperated for the rest of his life, in 1890. From 1890 through 1895, she worked as a "lady computer" at the Observatory. Maunder and Russell married in 1895. Annie Maunder became one of the Royal Astronomical Society's first female members in 1916.
