Publisher's Description

We live in a truly golden age of astronomy and space exploration that may allow us to unravel some of the biggest mysteries of all: How did the Universe begin? Are there other Earth-like planets out there? Are we alone? The Space Book is a gateway into these kinds of questions—and more—for anyone interested in the worlds beyond our planet.

Expanding the series that began with the highly successful volumes The Science Book and The Math Book, astronomer and planetary scientist Jim Bell presents 250 of the most groundbreaking astronomical events, from the formation of galaxies to the recent discovery of water ice on Mars. Beautiful photographs or illustrations accompany each entry. Open the book to any page to discover some new wonder or mystery about the Universe around us.

Editorial Reviews

". . . the format is eye-catching and the text easy to read, with a single page of explanatory text opposite a colorful image for each item. References to other pages are noted in boldface type, and specified in a 'See Also' list at the bottom of the entry . . . the result is accessible to a general audience. VERDICT This is a fine coffee-table book, suitable for either deep study or a few moments' perusal. Recommended for readers with a casual interest in the history of astronomy and the universe, or for sparking such an interest in others.” —Library Journal
 
“Dr. Bell's The Space Book chronicles what our species does best. Follow the discoveries through the millennia, and even those to be made billions of years hence. If this doesn't humble you, fill you with awe, and get you excited about discoveries yet to come, pick it up and read through it again!”—Bill Nye, the Science Guy® and CEO of The Planetary Society
 
“An extraordinary compilation of all that matters, ever mattered, or ever will matter in the universe. While it's a stunning source of information, Jim Bell's The Space Book is nonetheless a delight to browse and even more fun to read.”—Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist and Author of Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier
