Engagingly written, gloriously illustrated, Our Universe travels across the nighttime sky to reveal the intimate relationship between ourselves and the cosmos. It is an epic journey encompassing the full spectrum of our knowledge of the Universe.
Our Universe combines superb writing, over 350 striking images from ground-based and satellite telescopes (most in brillint color), and dozenzs of literary quotations, historical anecdotes, and classic paintings with astronomical themes. The result is a rich experience for all those interested in the role of astronomy in scientific and human history .
