    1 thought on “Turn Right At Orion: Travels Through The Cosmos”

    1. Good fun if you are a astronomy nerd. It's written like science fiction, but with almost no feeling in it. The narrator just jumps around the universe in his spaceship describing what he finds. Scientifically accurate, but we never learn how the narrator feels to be alone for so many years while everyone that he ever knew died 1000's of years before. A liitle humanity would have made this read a lot more fun.

    2. NOT for the novice. I know basic physics, and a little about astrophysics, and while this was thorough and ostensibly well explained, and did yield some flashes of insight here and there, it is way too much information for the first-time armchair astronomer, or it was for me anyways. Over my head, though someday I hope to understand it better.
