Description
"¿Cómo medimos el universo? ¿Dónde se halla el horizonte de sucesos? ¿Qué es la materia oscura? Desde los inicios de la humanidad, la gente ha alzado la vista al cielo con el afán de entenderlo. Así, a lo largo de los siglos, la ciencia astronómica ha ensanchado las fronteras del conocimiento humano en el intento de comprender el universo y nuestro lugar en él. Con un lenguaje claro, [esta libro] proporciona breves y sencillas explicaciones que aclaran la jerga científica, esquemas que desbrozan complejas teorías, ilustraciones que juegan con nuestro conocimiento de los astros e ingeniosas citas que condensan los descubrimientos astronómicos. Tanto el lector curioso como el estudiante o el apasionado por la astronomía encontrarán en este libro un conjunto de ideas muy interesantes."--Adapted from Amazon.com.
