Deep Space Summary

Deep Space: The Furthest Reaches of Our Universe by Robert Harvey

Travelling from the edge of our Solar System, through the Milky Way and to the outer edges of the observable universe, Deep Space is a spectacular photographic guide to galaxies, nebulae, supernova, clusters, black holes and quasars. Learn about the birth of stars in our own galaxy, planets beyond our own solar system, when they were first discovered and how we have managed to photograph these places. Ranging from the Magellanic Clouds within the Milky Way to stellar life cycles, from other spiral galaxies such as the Andromeda Galaxy, to the Sombrero Galaxy, and from nebulae such as the Pillars of Creation to black and white dwarfs, this is accessibly written for the general reader to grasp the science and magnitude of deep space. Featuring 200 outstanding colour photographs and expert captions, Deep Space is most certainly out of this world.

About Robert Harvey

Robert Harvey has a degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, is a Chartered Natural Scientist and an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society. He created Natural World Photography to share his passion for the complexity of nature in all its forms, wild landscapes and the beauty of the night sky. His scientific understanding of landscapes and astronomy and technical knowledge of photographic techniques is matched by creative determination to show the natural world in new ways. Over 250 of his images have been accepted in international exhibitions worldwide. Night sky photography has taken him throughout the British Isles, the Arctic, United States, Turkey, South America and the deserts of Namibia. He chases elusive phenomena such as solar eclipses and aurorae around the world and leads landscape astrophotography tours to several of these destinations. He is a tutor in landscape astrophotography at Lacock Photography in Wiltshire.
