Far Out:A Space-Time Chronicle Summary

Far Out:A Space-Time Chronicle: A Space-Time Chronicle by Michael Benson

This is from the bestselling author of "Beyond comes Far Out: A Space-Time Chronicle". This collection of breathtaking, never-before-published images of the universe's farthest reaches reveals the grandeur of the universe's earliest eons - using computers, electronics, optics and satellite technology to expand the boundaries of human perception in an innovative and beautiful way. In "Far Out: A Space-Time Chronicle", author and filmmaker Michael Benson assembles an outstanding collection of astronomical images from astronomers and observatories around the world and in space. We live in a golden age of astronomical observation. Some of the resulting images are well known and have inspired millions of people; others, equally breathtaking, have never been published before. For this book, Benson has culled the very best and organized them into a thrilling journey through space and time to the universe's great places, ranging from 'nearby' nebulas in our own Milky Way galaxy to the light of the Hubble Deep Field that has traveled billions of light-years. Every bit as innovative and beautiful as the author's successful "Beyond: Visions of the Interplanetary Probes" but far grander in conception, "Far Out: A Space-Time Chronicle" is an inspiring work of art and science on the cutting edge of human perception.
