I really enjoyed reading Longitude: The True Story of the Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of his Time by Dava Sobel. The book provides a well written narrative on the eventual development by John Harrison of a chronometer which could accurately measure time during ocean voyages.

Anyone interested in a first hand account of NASA‘s robotic missions to the moons of Jupiter and Saturn will find Moon Hunters: NASA’s Remarkable Expeditions to the Ends of the Solar System by Jeffrey Kluger to be a great read. Various moons, like Europa and Titan, may harbor forms of life and the only way to find out is to explore them. The book narrates the discoveries of various probes, such as Ranger, Voyager, and Galileo.
The Foundation novel begins the epic series of novels by Isaac Asimov called The Foundation Series. These novels are a thrilling science-fiction journey through time and space. Taking place over thousands of years and multiple locations throughout the Milky Way Galaxy, these novels take the reader on a mind bending journey. I recommend this series for any fan of science-fiction and I look forward to watching any movies based on them. (ISBN-13: 978-0553382570)
