    [synopsis] => The story of the universe is also a story about humans-from mythology to science fiction, the Star of Bethlehem to the Gaia space mission-and astronomer Florian Freistetter explores it all in The Story of the Universe in 100 Stars. It's hard to get a grasp on the entire universe, especially since it contains 10 sextillion stars, one for every grain of sand on all the beaches on Earth. But Freistetter helps us out by assembling a handpicked group of the celestial bodies that you'd most want as guests at a "stellar dinner party," introducing them in 100 bite-sized chapters. We also meet the people who, over the course of millennia, have tried to understand these stars. There is Algol, whose strange blinking earned it the nickname the "Demon Star," and Gamma Draconis, which helped early astronomers learn about the Earth's rotation on its own axis. Chapter by chapter, Freistetter reveals what the stars have to tell us about everything from the extinction of the dinosaurs to the search for extraterrestrial life, and how they've influenced our culture and thinking.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy your journey through the cosmos.
