This streamlined text (21 chapters) provides clarity with coverage
of such topics as planetary origins, star formation, the formation
and evolution of galaxies, and cosmology. The text introduces and
reinforces the concept that stellar and interstellar research have
much in common with planetary science and that both are closely
related to the formation and evolution of the universe as a whole.
Chapter 12 bridges the sections on planets and stars by reviewing
the origins of both. The text also contains many features to help
students appreciate Earth's role in the universe, including Science
and Society boxes that cover the effects of technology on the
Earth's atmosphere. Plus, Astronomical Activities and WWW
Activities are at the end of each chapter. Voyage Through the Solar
System CD-ROM and The Sky Student Edition CD-ROM are included with
each new student copy of the text.
