Outer space has always held our fascination. Its sheer limitlessness draws us in and fires up our imaginations with infinite questions. For the answers to many of them, you need to probe no further than the pages of this book. Beautiful book, 576 pages.

The Handy Space Answer Book tackles hundreds of technical concepts, from black holes to red giants, and explains them simply. You'll discover what a cosmic string is, how scientists "trap" plasma, and how astronomers at the Very Large Array study extraterrestrial radio signals.

You'll also trace the development of space technology from primitive (but surprisingly accurate) Mayan instruments to the X-ray telescopes of today. And you'll meet the brave people who manned the missions. For thoroughly intriguing coverage of our universe, Handy Space is out of this world!
