Description

Dana Berry takes readers on a dazzling tour of the "new" cosmos, outward bound from Earth, through the solar system, to the farthest reaches of space. Drawing on his extraordinary access to NASA's archives and the latest data from the Hubble Space Telescope, Chandra X-ray Observatory and a range of other space missions, he showcases an unprecedented and spectacular selection of photographs and original full-color illustrations that capture the most magnificent astronomical phenomena. And he complements these with clear, up-to-date and straightforward explanations of the latest space discoveries and theories - from the explosive origins of our own Universe to the possible existence of countless others beyond it.show more
