The Story of Astronomy - used book

ISBN: 1847246222

ID: 5920553

From the ancient origins of astronomy to the Copernican revolution, and from Galileo to Hawking's research into black holes, "The Story of Astronomy" charts the discoveries of some of the greatest minds in human history, and their attempts to unveil the secrets of the stars. Peter Aughton's trademark narrative style is to the fore, demystifying some of the biggest breakthroughs in the history of science, and packed full of fascinating nuggets such as why we have 60 minutes in an hour, how the Romans bodged the invention of the leap year and when people really discovered the Earth wasn't flat (a thousand years before Columbus).And explaining in the most straightforward and compelling of ways what Newton, Einstein, Hubble and Hawking really achieved. Richly informative and readable, "Star Sight" is a fascinating journey through 3000 years of stargazing. Included are chapters on: The Origins of Astronomy, Finding Longitude, From Babylon to Ancient Greece, Einstein, The Almagest, Hubble's Universe, Persian Stargazing, The Microcosm and the Macrocosm, Nicholas Copernicus, Beyond the Visible Spectrum, Tycho and Kepler, Black Holes and Quasars Galileo Stephen, Hawking Newton and The Clockwork, Universe, The Moment of Creation, William Herschel, and The Future. ancient,assyria babylonia and sumer,astronomy,astronomy and space science,history,history and philosophy,science and math,star-gazing Science & Math, Quercus Publishing
