Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Universe: And Our Place Within It

by Professor Andrew Newsam - £11.99  Elliott & Thompson Limited (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781783962600 | ISBN 10: 1783962607

The universe is a beautiful, awe-inspiring place – from glowing nebulae to the sweeping majesty of the Milky Way, from complex cloud patterns on Jupiter to the rippling curtains of aurorae. But many of us struggle to grasp the complex ideas and science behind it all, or to see how it relates to our everyday lives.
 
In Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Universe, Professor Andrew Newsam draws on his vast expertise to show us what’s going on beyond the limits of our planet, from our solar system to distant galaxies – and what this tells us about our own place in this vast expanse.
 
Will our explorations of our neighbouring planets reveal life or a new place to settle? What happens inside black holes? Is dark matter real? Would a solar flare have a devastating effect on our planet? Could we do anything to prevent being wiped out by an approaching asteroid? What can observations of stars reveal about our origins – and our future?
 
A brilliantly vivid and enlightening guide to the incredible phenomena of outer space – and to ourselves.
