Product description

Review

'Where the book really shines is in the illustrations, providing a photo album of the newly discovered comet, its evolution as it headed for its catastrophic end, the Galileo and Hubble Space Telescope observations, and the wealth of ground-based infrared and visual imagery … highly recommended.' Paul Weismann, Science

'The great value of this book is that so much is written by the main players themselves … One puts the book aside with a profound sense of excellence achieved … a great book suitable for a wide range of readers, and great value too.' Astronomy and Space

' … a great deal of riveting information … a model of good popular science exposition.' Science Reporter, Journal of the Association of British Science Writers ' ... superbly illustrated ... full of information.' W. M. Napier, Endeavour

'… a worthy record of a very momentous event.' Journal of the British Astronomical Association ' … well produced, with excellent illustrations, easy to read … Overall a splendid book.' Popular Astronomy
