"Unfolding Our Universe is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to astronomy. With text and illustrations, it takes readers to the heart of the Universe - explaining the facts, concepts, methods and frontiers of astronomical science. The book can be read right through without referring to any mathematics. For the more ambitious reader, key points are developed in more detail and basic mathematics provided in self-contained boxes." "Full color throughout and a very readable text make this book a delight for the casual reader to browse, while the clear and concise explanations will appeal to amateur astronomers, science teachers and college and university students taking an introductory course on astronomy."--Jacket

Introducing astronomy : a guide to the universe by Iain Nicolson( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live on a small planet that revolves round an unexceptional star - the Sun - which is one of the hundred billion stars that populate our galaxy. Of the many billions of galaxies that lie within range of our most powerful telescopes, some are so remote that their light has taken more than 13 billion years to reach us. This book takes the reader on a journey from planet Earth to the boundaries of the observable universe. It explains the nature of stars, planets, and galaxies; what makes them shine; and how they are born, evolve, and eventually will die. The book explores the origin of the universe as a whole and considers whether life may exist on other worlds. Copiously illustrated, Introducing Astronomy is intended for anyone who is looking for straightforward explanations of what astronomy is all about. It will also serve as an invaluable primer for those who are considering studying the subject more formally. *** "Iain Nicholson (former Principal Lecturer in Astronomy, University of Hertfordshire) guides the browser on an incredible tour of the planets of the solar system, the galaxy, and the universe beyond. ... fascinating guide, created not only to enlighten people but also to inspire them to learn more about this wondrous scientific discipline"--Midwest Book Review, Library Bookwatch
