Publisher Comments:

Have you ever tried to imagine the vastness of the universe? There are as many stars in the universe as there are grains of sand on all the beaches of the world. The universe is everything that exists, now and in the past.

Once again, noted science writer Seymour Simon takes readers on a thrilling voyage into space, this time beyond our own Solar System and galaxy. First, Simon explores the beginnings of our universe, starting with the Big Bang, and discusses whether the universe is still expanding. As readers pore over each breathtaking photograph, they will marvel at how new stars are born and old stars die. Finally, they will learn about some of the most fascinating mysteries of the universe, including quasars and black holes.

Informative and entertaining, this is a book that will be treasured by young and old alike.
