Hello. Can someone tell me if the "Messenger" mission has published a book that I can find or buy and read?

How about a "Magellan" mission hard copy book?

Galileo Jupiter?

Thanks
G

MESSENGER:
There's this one, but it looks quite pricey: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/mobile/p/messenger-mission-to-mercury-domingue/1101499395/2671345727266

Magellan:
The Face of Venus- http://www.amazon.com/The-Face-Venus-Magellan-Mapping/dp/1478350636
Venus Revealed: http://www.amazon.com/Venus-Revealed-Clouds-Mysterious-Planet/dp/0201328399
There's a few JPL pamphlets that turned up on Amazon, too, but most have their full text online on NASA sites, so you probably shouldn't spring for them unless you're a space memorabilia collector.

Galileo:
Mission to Jupiter- http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1493716662/ref=pd_aw_sbs_14_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=0MZA9CSEVXEX5DTKZ2V2
(Different from the above) Mission Jupiter- http://www.amazon.com/Mission-Jupiter-Spectacular-Journey-Spacecraft/dp/0387987649
Jupiter Odyssey- http://www.amazon.com/Jupiter-Odyssey-Galileo-Springer-Exploration/dp/1852333014

And now you've made my "to-read" list even longer than it was before...

In terms of science books (dense, very thick books), there is something along the lines of a "Mercury after MESSENGER" book that is in the works. Articles are/were due recently/soon (I'm not involved) so I would guess publication would be sometime in later 2016.
