The Astronomer Royal, Lord Rees, reviews Aurum's The Secret Life of Space

August 11, 2015
The Astronomer Royal, Lord Rees, has given the following review of the upcoming Aurum Press title The Secret Life of Space, by Heather Couper and Nigel Henbest.

"The authors have a well-deserved reputation as wide-ranging expert commentators on astronomy and space. This book is an exhilarating romp through the history of astronomy, highlighting some 'byways' of the subject, and giving credit to some astronomers who are unjustly overlooked in many histories. It's highly accessible, and written in a lightweight journalistic style that would appeal to anyone coming fresh to the subject."
