The "Times" Universe Summary


The "Times" Universe: A Photographic Guide by Ian Ridpath

This volume presents a visual tour from the moon to the edge of the visible Universe, including over 200 colour photographs. The vast expanse of the Universe has been opened up to us like never before with the development of extraordinarily powerful telescopes, orbiting satellites, and planet and deep-space probes. This is a collection of the best of the photographs taken using this equipment. It includes the different types of instrument used to bring us these fantastic images and all the planets in our Solar System, from Pluto - the most remote - to the Moon. Ian Ridpath also examines the asteroids and comets that enter our Solar System, the Sun and other stars in our galaxy. The birth and spectacular death of stars - supernovae - are also illustrated.
