About the Author

Garik Israelian is an Armenian-Spanish astrophysicist. He works for the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias and European Northern Observatory. He has spoken at many international conferences and published more than 180 scientific articles. His most important scientific contribution is leading the team that found the first observational evidence that supernova explosions are responsible for the formation of black holes. Although best known to the world as the lead guitarist of supergroup Queen, Brian May recently completed the PhD in astrophysics which he abandoned when Queen first started to find fame. David J. Eicher is editor in chief of Astronomy magazine, the world's largest publication on the subject. He is president of the Astronomy Foundation, the telescope industry's first ever trade association. He is author of 17 books on science and history, and a rock and blues drummer in the Astronomy Blues Band. He was honoured in 1990 by the International Astronomical Union with the naming of minor planet 3617 Eicher.

Wonderful book! The first chapters, about astronauts, are amazing! Other talks are technical, but anyone can understand then. I'm waiting for the second one, about Starmus 2014. This one is about Starmus 2011.
