Our Place in the Universe tells the story of our world, formation of the first galaxies and stars formed from great clouds containing the primordial elements made in the first few minutes; birth of stars, their lives and deaths in fiery supernova explosions; formation of the solar system, its planets and many moons; life on Earth, its needs and vicissitudes on land and in the seas; finally exoplanets, planets that surround distant stars. Interspersed in the text are short pieces on some of those who revealed these wonders to us.It is written in a very authoritative and readable form and contains more than 100 color prints of the marvelous galaxies, and nebula that have been taken from space-based and land-based telescopes carried by NASA missions, the European Space Agency, the European Southern Laboratory in Chile and many other sources.Sample Chapter(s)Chapter 1: A Day without Yesterday (1,087 KB)View images from the bookContents:A Day without YesterdayFormation of GalaxiesBirth and Life of StarsSupernovae: Death and Transfiguration of StarsNebulaeSpacetime, Relativity and Superdense MatterOriginsFirst Modern AstronomerLife on EarthOther Planets and Their MoonsNew WorldsReadership: General.
