Music of the Spheres
The first half of the book--Moons of Rock and Suns of Fire--deals with major astronomical phenomena viewed poetically from an imaginary earth satellite. In the second part the realms in which physics holds sway pass in review; the forms and nature of matter, the atom, waves and music, light and color, space and time.
