Space, the final frontier, is the last and most mysterious realm to challenge the human spirit. One's imagination follows the space probes reaching ever further into the depths of the cosmos, while the mind boggles at the revolutionary concepts conceived by mathematicians and scientists, to fit together the ceaseless flood of new information. Using straightforward language, graphics and up-to-date space imagery, this book tells the story of the universe; its birth, its life and its possible future. It provides extensive coverage of astronomical topics - planets and moons, galaxies and stars, pulsars and quasars, brown stars and black holes, worlds long past and those yet to come. The author's other books include "The Practical Astronomer" and "The Skywatcher's Handbook".

My son spotted this in the library. He read their copy, and then got one of his own. His copy was ruined when the house flooded and he got another. Well organized--just the right level of challenge. Great illustrations. Well organized. No particular level of scientific knowledge required. A good book

Ok, say its time to curl up on the couch with your favorite book on the cosmos. You go over to the fridge grab a 40 oz, stop by the tomb of knowledge and browse your selections. This book is the bomb on all that is UNI. You pick this little baby up and jump on the couch with a your drink and get ready to go on a tour of everything observable. This book is just cool. I have checked it out of the library many times. And now I am making it my own. Charts, numbers, stuff. It's all in there.
