About the Author

Dr. Garik Israelian, an astrophysicist at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands (Spain), is the creative director and spiritual father of the Starmus Festival, which was celebrated in June 2011, and on which this book is based. In 1999 he led an investigation, reported in the journal Nature, that found the first observational evidence that supernova explosions are responsible for the formation of black holes. His research has led to several high profile discoveries, published in Nature and other professional journals, on extrasolar planets, massive stars and black hole binary systems. He has published over 200 academic papers, and was awarded the 2010 Ambartsumian Prize for Astrophysics, along with Michel Mayor and Nuno Santos, for studies of extrasolar planets and their parent stars.

Dr. Brian May, CBE, has published research articles in the field of the solar zodiacal dust cloud. He is coauthor, with Sir Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott, of the bestselling popular astronomy books Bang!, and The Cosmic Tourist. A lifelong devotee of 3-D imaging, with Elena Vidal he wrote and illustrated A Village Lost and Found -- a book bringing the important work of 19th century stereoscopic photographer T. R. Williams into the 21st century. And in 2013 he published Diableries: A Stereoscopic Trip into Hell, with Denis Pellerin and Paula Fleming. Dr. May is most widely known as lead guitarist and founding member of the legendary rock band Queen. He is a passionate campaigner for the welfare of wild animals.

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.
