about

The Short Story of the Universe is a new introduction to the subject of the universe. Covering 130 key components that make it up – from dwarf galaxies and spiral arms to red giants and the planets of the solar system – and linking these to the universe's structure and the theories that help us understand it, this book simplifies this riveting yet mind-boggling subject, telling the story of how it came into being and how it will eventually be no more.

Accessible and concise, generously illustrated throughout, and with all the essential information presented without jargon, readers are given all the tools they need to enjoy the fascinating history of the deepest depths of the universe.
