Horizons; exploring the universe, 10th ed.

Seeds, Michael A.

Brooks/Cole Publishing


516 pages




Seeds (astronomy, Franklin and Marshall College) updates his beautifully illustrated classic text to reflect more of what we know about what we are and how we know what we know. Seeds continues to tackle such big topics as the scale of the cosmos, the sky and its cycles, the origins of modern astronomy, atmospheric telescopes, starlight and atoms, the sun, the family of stars, their formation and architecture and their deaths, neutron stars and black holes, the Milky Way and other galaxies, cosmology in the twenty-first century, the origin of the solar system, comparative planetology of the planets, meteorites, asteroids, comets, and the possibility that on other planets the residents are also asking "What are we?" and "How do we know?"
