Universe: The Story of the Universe, from Earliest Times to Our Continuing Discoveries
The companion volume to Stargazing, this book focuses on the basic history and science of the universe, rather than on the practical skywatching aspects. It includes information on: outrageous philosophy: weird notions and early ideas about the Universe including ancient Egyptian and Greek cosmology; how the universe began: creation theories and the expanding Universe, from the Big Bang to the formation of the Sun and the appearance of life and humans; and, structure and composition of planet and the atmosphere, volcanoes, mountain formation and geological catastrophes; past, present and future, among others.
