Description

Take an extraordinary journey to the most far-flung corners of the Universe with How the Universe Works, an illustrated guide to the wonders and inspiring phenomena that Cosmos has to offer—explained via spectacular photography and stunning illustrations in full-color cross sections.

The cosmos is a complex and intricate system that astronomers have been trying to dissect for years. From Galileo and Copernicus to the Space Race and Modern Day NASA missions, humanity has craved more knowledge about the Universe and how it works. Hundreds of years of scientific discovery, and there’s still so much to learn. How the Universe Works is the latest installment in a series of books that deconstructs how things work and explains in a format that is easy to understand.

With beautiful and detailed visuals in the form of info-graphics, 3D illustrations, cutaways and renderings, How the Universe Works offers a tiny glimpse of the massive stretch of the universe. Each page delves more into the composition of the stars and shows the information in such a way that makes even the most complex phenomenon easy to understand. Learn how different cosmic bodies interact with one another, why, and how humanity has worked to understand space.

The observable universe spans billions and billionsof light years. How the Universe Works is a work intended to put the cosmos in the hands of its readers. Understanding the most complex mechanisms that rule space is quite a task, but with information for the entire family, this editorial ally is perfect for getting immersed in the intricacies of the observable universe and all its natural beauty.

The How Things Work series explores a vast array of complicated subjects in the world around us, breaking each down into easy-to-understand pieces. With infographics and cutaway artwork to dissect everything from Wi-Fi to the Big Bang, this accessible family reference series is a perfect introduction to understanding all the moving parts of our universe.
