Description
In this eye-opening tour of milestones in the history of our universe—which features 75 vblack and white illustrations—Chris Impey guides us through space and time, leading us from the familiar sights of the night sky to the strange aftermath of the Big Bang. Because light from the infancy of the universe takes an inconceivably long time to reach us, it can be used as a type of cosmic archaeology; Impey explains how scientists use these the astronomical clues to solve mysteries about the origins and development of our universe.

"Chris Impey combines the vision of a practicing scientist with the voice of a gifted storyteller. He has crafted some of the finest metaphors imaginable for capturing astronomy’s most grandiose concepts."—Dava Sobel
