In a highly entertaining format, the book uses the enormously popular fictional characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to unravel and explain the historical underpinnings of remote sensing. The extended appendices guarantee that all of the science of remote sensing is included in this book of a€œscientific fiction.a€ The story covers more than 2000 years, beginning with Pythagoras in ancient Greece and ending with Einsteina€™s first article on relativity in 1905.
