The universal book of astronomy : from the Andromeda Galaxy to the zone of avoidance

David Darling

This is the ultimate guide to the final frontier. This alphabetical tour of the universe provides all the history, science, and up to the minute facts needed to explore the skies with authority. Packed with more than 3,000 entries that cover everything from major observatories and space telescopes to biographies of astronomers throughout the ages, it showcases an extraordinary array of newfound wonders, including microquasars, brown dwarfs, and dark energy, as well as a host of individual comets, asteroids, moons, planets, stars, nebulas, and galaxies. Featuring nearly 200 illustrations and eight pages of color photographs, this comprehensive guide provides easy lookup of topics and offers more in depth information than can be found in existing star guides or astronomy dictionaries. It's an ideal resource for the amateur astronomer or anyone with an interest in the mysteries of the cosmos. David Darling, PhD (Brainerd, MN), is the author of "The Complete Book of Spaceflight" (0 471 05649 9) and "Equations of Eternity", a "New York Times" Notable Book.
