The Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Universe Description
Editor: Ian Ridpath

Hardcover: 384 pages

In the spirit of Stephen Hawking's best-selling A Brief History of Time, The Encyclopedia of the Universe is a riveting sourcebook that provides intriguing insight into the discovery and explanation of the universe. From the theories of the Ancient Greeks and findings of Copernicus and Galileo to today's understanding of black holes, the development of time machines, even the search for extra-terrestrial life, the Encyclopedia brings key scientific concepts and historical events alive.

An innovative organizational scheme of a matrix of book routes makes the Encyclopedia easy to follow. Lively use of color, graphics, and navigational icons presents a logical flow of information that works equally well for science buffs and amateur astronomers, as well as for the serious student. The Encyclopedia also includes a complete guide to the solar system, with star maps, tools, techniques, and projects.

This remarkable reference has a wealth of features that put it in a class of its own. Authored and validated by a high-caliber team of more than a dozen writers and scholars from key astronomical institutions in both the United States and Great Britain, it is undoubtedly the most detailed single-volume, illustrative reference on the universe ever published.
