    1 thought on “Visions of the Cosmos”

    1. Gorgeous pictures and solid text. This is a book to get kids and adults excited about what's out there beyond this planet - makes me wish I was my grandkids' age and had a shot at a career working in space as I hope they will if they wish when they're grown. A great book to just page through and enjoy the illustrations or to look things up in.

    2. Great photos, mostly from the Hubble Space Telescope. The narrative is pitched for people like me who know a little about astronomy but not all that much. A perfect primer for learning a little about how scientists currently view the universe. Or at least as of 2003.
