The Illustrated Timeline of the Universe
A Crash Course in Words & PicturesPaperback - 2006
It all begins with the "Big Bang" and continues through to the recent landing on Mars. Filled with magnificent images and illustrated renditions of the universe's most significant highlights, this natural history timeline soars through galaxies, nebulae, and solar systems, and tracks human exploration in the starry skies. Follow Earth and the other planets as they cool; the appearance of "modern humans" in Africa; and the creation of technology, from telescopes to satellites. Introductory pages help shed insight on each section, and copious sidebars answer some of the most fascinating questions about a variety of phenomena.
