Now, Alan Lightman, the author of the brilliantly original
bestselling novel Einstein's Dreams, presents the real-life drama
of astronomy, a journey far into the stars that outpaces any
fiction for adventure and excitement. Unsurpassed in its
authoritativeness, TIME FOR THE STARS is based on the report of the
National Academy of Science's Astronomy and Astrophysics Survey
Committee, for whose science panel Alan Lightman served as chair.
Here is a book that will introduce you to cosmic puzzles about
people and planets stars and galaxies, and the beginnings and the
ends of the universe. How do we know what's inside the sun? What
are the prospects of finding other solar systems -- and
extraterrestrial life -- in coming years? What was the universe
like ten billion years ago? Will it keep on expanding forever?
Here are the latest advances in technology that have rocketed us
to dazzling new frontiers. They may catch you off guard. But they
will leave you fixed in wonder.
