5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven's Touch: From Killer Stars to the Seeds of Life, 16 Nov 2009

This review is from: Heaven's Touch: From Killer Stars to the Seeds of Life, How We Are Connected to the Universe (Hardcover)
A really fantastic book which is mind-blowing. We are taken from this wonderful earth where the effects of other solar system bodies are explained and then to the Milky Way and to the galaxies beyond. This should be a 'must read'for all human beings. It is difficult to beleive that anyone could could have such a grasp of such enormously complex phenomena and be able to explain them in terms that a non-specialist can understand. A truly fantastic read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this and feel very small..., 26 Sep 2009

This review is from: Heaven's Touch: From Killer Stars to the Seeds of Life, How We Are Connected to the Universe (Hardcover)
Well written and very engaging. The perfect read for anyone who looks at the sky and wonders at it all and who wants more of an explanation than school science or wikipedia can provide. The staggering enormity of the Universe and how it is all interconnected leaves a deep impression. A MUST read, comparable to 'A brief history of time'.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a star of first magnitude, 9 Sep 2009

This review is from: Heaven's Touch: From Killer Stars to the Seeds of Life, How We Are Connected to the Universe (Hardcover)
Heaven's Touch is a passionate account both of humanity's tangible contact with the universe at large, and the profound influences of the universe for life on Earth. In Heaven's Touch, Jim Kaler has a new take on astrophysics and cosmology whereby he involves rational beings as participants in the grandeur of the cosmos. He treads in the footsteps of giants such as Jeans, Eddington and Hoyle without tripping up. Kaler equals them all by connecting our ordinary human experience of the world in which we live with the immensity of the universe as well as the variety of its content.
