    Description
    This new highly illustrated encyclopedia sets out to explain how the Universe works and to describe every feature - a unique undertaking in a single volume. It covers the discovery and explanation of the universe from the Ancient Greeks - who thought that the night literally had a thousand eyes sewn onto a mantle by the celestial nightwatchman Argos - up to the present day understanding of black holes, worm holes and the theoretical development of time machines.

    The book is designed to bring all the history and concepts to life providing an up to date explanation of how the universe works. It is divided into eight main chapters:
    - Explore the Universe
    - History of Astronomy
    - Laws of Time and Space
    - Quantum Mechanics
    - The Past, Present and Future of the Universe
    - What's in the Universe
    - Watching the Sky
    - Space Exploration
    - Reference Section

    From Miletus, via Copernicus, to Stephen Hawking it provides the most up-to-date knowledge on the universe for a wide range of readers - science buffs, students, amateur astronomers - as well as being a completely comprehensive family reference work.
