Description: White dwarves. Black dwarves. Red giants. Are these mythological creatures? Actually, they are astronomical terms that are explained in 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About the Universe, the only source for a comprehensive and entertaining account of the stars and the Sun, space exploration, and the Milky Way Galaxy.

Eminent astronomer William Gutsch takes us on a journey to explore the nebulous star clusters, probe the core of the nuclear furnace we call the Sun, tour the distortions of time and space, and demystify 998 more secrets of the cosmos. We will gain insight into how the Galaxy evolved, and search its very heart, where many scientists believe a monstrous black hole may lurk.

Are there beings on other planets who, like us, look up at the starry sky and wonder if there is life elsewhere? This book ferrets out the most likely places in space for life to exist, and reveals how scientists are actually trying to contact advanced extraterrestrials.

Perfect for adult astronomy buffs and students alike, 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About the Universe brings astronomy to life in a fun, engaging, and intelligent way.
