Deep Space: The Furthest Reaches of Our Universe
By Robert Harvey
I received a free copy of Deep Space from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
Travelling from the edge of our Solar System, through the Milky Way and to the outer edges of the observable universe, Deep Space is a spectacular photographic guide to galaxies, nebulae, supernova, clusters, black holes, and quasars.
Learn about the birth of stars in our own galaxy, planets beyond our own solar system, when they were first discovered and how we have managed to photograph these places. Ranging from the Magellanic Clouds within the Milky Way to stellar life cycles, from other spiral galaxies such as the Andromeda Galaxy, to the Sombrero Galaxy, and from nebulae such as the Pillars of Creation to black and white dwarfs, this is accessibly written for the general reader to grasp the science and magnitude of deep space. Featuring 200 outstanding color photographs and expert captions, Deep Space is most certainly out of this world.
Summary from Goodreads.
When you look towards the night sky, you see countless stars and even galaxies. In Deep Space, we get to see what these shining dots of light in the night sky actually look like.
Deep Space is split up into 5 different sections. Birth of Stars, Life of Stars, Death of Stars, The Milky-way and our Local Group, and The Distant Universe. Each section is curated so that both known and unknown space objects are included.
I would happily have any of the photos featured in Deep Space printed and hung up on my wall, preferably as large as possible.
