Capturing the Universe is written by Dr Rhodri Evans and will be available to buy from 7th February 2019 onwards. This book is a fantastic collection of the most spectacular images of galaxies, star clouds and the wonders of our solar system. There are over 200 breathtaking photographs taken by new generation orbiting telescopes, earthbound observatories and probes, including images from NASA and the European Southern Observatory. These pictures are not only mesmerising but also provide a huge amount of information about the geology and atmospheres of celestial bodies, and the formation of distant galaxies.
This book is divided into five chapters. First, we explore the wonders of our solar system including images of breathtaking detail, whether from data sent back 7.5 billion kilometres to bring Pluto into focus, or our first direct encounter with a comet by the Philae lander.
We then explore the milky way and discover the use of different types of radio waves to allow us to see some of the most energetic processes in our galaxy. From exploring the local group (our corner of the universe) to beyond the local group to the edge of the universe. Each page reveals how extraordinary our universe is and each image contains commentary by an expert astronomer, who explains what can be seen in each photograph and how it was achieved.
This book is filled with stunning and powerful images of our universe. I love reading this book and it has inspired me to learn more about our universe. It is available to pre-order now via Carlton Books, Amazon or any good book store.
