about

Since astronomers first looked up into the nebulous sky, humanity has been occupied with the great mysteries of our universe. How did it all begin? Will it ever end? What is our small planet''s significance within this vast expanse of space?

Within recent years scientists have made huge leaps in answering these questions. Anne Rooney narrates the story of our universe and the scientific discoveries that have led us to these conclusions. Learn about the Big Bang, the life cycle of stars, dark matter and the enigmas that still trouble us today, such as why the expansion of our universe is now accelerating. Also discover the pioneering men and women who aided such discoveries, such as Henrietta Leavitt, Georges Lemaître and Edwin Hubble.

Including fact boxes, useful diagrams and stunning space photography, this illustrated guide to the universe provides an engaging and comprehensive introduction to this 13.8 billion-year history.

Anne Rooney gained a degree and then a PhD from Trinity College, Cambridge. She lives in Cambridge and has written many books on science and technology for adults and young people, including ten titles in the ''How the World Works'' series.
