How do we know that the earth travels around the sun, the universe is billions of years old, and stars are trillions of miles away? Rocky Kolb tells the fascinating story of the people and ideas that have brought us such knowledge of our planet and the universe, giving realistic portraits of astronomers like Tycho, Kepler, Galileo, Herschel, and Hubble. Beginning in 1572 with Tycho's discovery that the heavens can change, and ending with the Big Bang of the 20th Century, this is a hugely entertaining and witty account of the quest to discover the universe.
