Product description


a lively and entertaining book that I can recommend to anyone wishing to know more about gamma-ray bursters (Chris Kitchin, Astronomy Now)

The author gives a lively account of science in action...excellent supplementary reading material for a university student taking a course in physics or astronomy, or as background material for their lectureres who may not be familiar with this subject (Michael Dworetsky, THES)

About the Author

Jonathan I. Katz received a PhD from Cornell University at the age of 22. He is an astrophysicist and applied physicist who has worked on problems as diverse as X ray stars, earthquakes, the fracture of glass, and gamma-ray bursts.
