Inhaltsangabe: Man's knowledge of space has increased at an enormous rate over the past decades: Voyager and the other space probes have relayed increasingly detailed information about the planets in our solar system, while satellite telescopes are looking further and further into the universe. This book of space brings together the authority of the UK's world famous planetarium and the experience of author Sue Becklake to create a comprehensive, up-to-date and lucid survey of the world of astronomy, aimed at the younger reader. Illustrated with over 200 images, including specially commissioned artwork and NASA photographs, and packed with facts and explanations, the book covers all the essentials. From the history of astronomy and the great scientists and inventors who increased man's knowledge, to descriptions of our solar system, the planets, and the galaxy beyond. From the birth and death of stars and the phenomena of red giants, white dwarves and black holes to quasars - the most distant objects ever detected. And the book looks towards the edge of the visible universe and at the theories surrounding its creation and formation, as well as the future both of the universe and its exploration. There is also practical advice and information to help the young astronomer start their own studies - making this a complete one volume introduction to the subject, and a perfect gift book.
