The Galaxy and the Solar System

by Roman SmoluchowskiJohn N. BahcallMildred Shapley Matthews

Originally published in 1986, this work came out of a conference held in Tucson, Arizona in January 1985 which explored the influence of the Galaxy on the solar system. The meeting was the first get-together of the galactic and solar system scientific communities. At the time, the conversations covered new and sometimes controversial topics. This work presented the latest research and stimulated new research and ideas.
