Product description

Review

Astronomy has long been recognized as 'bait', dangled in front of children, in particular, to lure them into science more generally; and one of the facets that has always been especially tempting is the beauty of its subjects of study. Well, here is a veritable feast, culled principally from the Hubble Space Telescope and presented by a deft practitioner of outreach from Canada, Terence Dickinson. With perfect timing and a price that is an absolute snip, this dazzling book would be an ideal Christmas gift for anyone, young or old. A wide and very up-to-date range of topics in astronomy is covered, from planets of the Solar System to the remotest galaxies captured in the Ultra-Deep Field, each with stunning and crisply reproduced images accompanied by lucid text to place them in the context of the advances afforded by the HST; those images of nebulae and star clusters would be worthy of an honoured place in any great art gallery. The chequered history of the telescope itself is also treated, with the conclusion very clear -- it has been an absolute boon to astronomy and, I would add, to civilization more generally. In summary: superb!--David Strickland"The Observatory, Volume 134, No. 1243" (12/01/2014)
