Description

What does dark energy look like? Or the awesome phenomenon of cosmic cannibalism, when immense black holes swallow entire solar systems? Pre-eminent NASA illustrator Dana Berry makes these and many other unseen wonders of the cosmos visible as never before, revealing a Universe that we can't see even with the most powerful orbiting telescopes - and that scientists can only imagine.Berry takes readers on a dazzling tour of the new cosmos. Drawing on his extraordinary access to NASA's archives and the latest data from the Hubble Space Telescope, Chandra X-ray Observatoryand a range of other space missions, he showcases an unprecedented and spectacular selection of photographs and original full-colour illustrations that capture the most magnificent astronomical phenomena. And he complements these with clear, up-to-date and straightforward explanations of the latest space discoveries and theories - from the explosive origins of our own Universe to the possible existence of countless others beyond it.
