Larsen, Kristine M.
In introducing readers to cosmology and the real world of sometimes unscholarly scientists, Larsen (astronomy and physics, Central Connecticut State U.) examines myths about cosmic bodies, current speculation about the universe, and insights from technology-aided discoveries regarding its nature, mapping, and evolution. The text includes a glossary and annotated bibliography, but no dazzling out-of-this world views of the cosmos.
