About this book

This user-friendly companion to the cosmos is packed with a universe of facts. Embarking on a 13.7 billion light year journey, it will steer you safely through the myriads of exotic celestial objects - from active galactic nuclei to gamma-ray bursters - that lie between our home planet and the very edge of space and time.

Published in a special large format edition, fully up-to-date with the latest discoveries and gloriously illustrated with 500 images, "Cosmos: A Field Guide" does justice to the biggest subject there is.
