Light Years Away


Light Years Away Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Light Years Away covers the wonderful things of our universe and the possibilities beyond our visible range. As the name suggests most of the subject matters of the book are of distant objects like our neighbouring stars, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, galaxy clusters and superclusters. In the final chapters the possibilities beyond the observable limit and beyond our universe have been looked at carefully. But the facts of solar system and earth have not been ignored. The whole view of the creation has been presented in a lucid format.

The basic questions that we encounter like, where is the end (boundary) of the universe, what can be the nature of the extra universal things, is light the fastest; why we are unable to explain the universe etc have been addressed in a scientific and logical but unsophisticated way.

Of course some back ground in the subjects like physics and astronomy can help in the better understanding into the matter. But for any enthusiast of space and cosmos irrespective of the back ground and age Light Years Away will be a satisfactory text.
