Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful summary of cosmic knowledge, as of the year of its publication, 2001. Many of the items the average reader would have wondered about, such as the size of our solar system, or our galaxy, or the comparable sizes of our planets, are spelled out in plain language. Many of the current mysteries are tackled by revealing the current theories, so that the reader can decide what one to believe. The authors, Stephen Sotor and Neal Tyson have presented the material in a most logical and instructive way. This is a jewel of a book, and it belongs in everyone's library, thanks to the Museum of Natural History.
