NEW SCIENTIST: JOURNEY THROUGH THE UNIVERSE:

NEW SCIENTIST    Book Number: 87929    Product format: Paperback

Star One, Worlds of Iron And Rock, The Wild Frontier, The Life of Stars, The Afterlife of Stars, A Trillion Planets, Mysteries of the Milky Way, Galaxy Quest and Flashes and Crashes are the chapters in this well-illustrated tour of the cosmos. The Sun dominates our solar system, our sky and our lives and within its core, protons fuse together to form helium nuclei, generating heat. But unless we can understand its magnetic mysteries, the Sun has the power to bring chaos to civilisation. We will swoop out into the Milky Way to meet seething unstable stars and exotic exoplanets, through the mysteries of the intergalactic void, to far-flung galaxies where giant black holes shine, and beyond to the exploding stars and collisions that create some of the most distant beacons we can see. First and most obviously are the stars and planets. Some are familiar like yellow suns, rocky planets like Mars, gas and ice giants like Jupiter and Neptune but there are many more - red and white dwarfs, super-Earths and hot Jupiters, supernovae, super massive black holes, quasars, pulsars, neutron stars, quark stars, gamma ray bursts and cosmic strings. With this new language, we voyage to a new and amazing world of celestial objects and find out how they fit together to build the cosmos. 228 page paperback, diagrams and images.
