Simply put, this is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever had the chance to page through. And you will want to take the time to study each and every page of the newly revised and updated version of DK and Smithsonian’s “UNIVERSE: The Definitive Visual Guide.” UNIVERSE takes you on an incredible guided journey through the cosmos, providing thousands of stunning images (eye candy alert!), fact-filled infographics, and features like a 4-page timeline of the Universe. Not only does it cover astronomy and physics, but there is also information about matter, gravity, time, distance, radiation and relativity. The book is edited by noted British astronomer and cosmologist Martin Rees, and is the ultimate reference guide to everything in the Universe –from quasars to comets, supernovae to string theory. It also includes a comprehensive star atlas that covers all the constellations, with planetary charts showing their positions through 2019.

And Universe Today has 2 copies of this book — each a $50 value — to give away!

Sounds fascinating – I’ve never read the original though, either way, I’ll order one if I don’t win next payday ^^

Anyone besides Nancy Atkinson(Since she seems to love it!!!) have any experience with the original? Think it’s good? ^^

I have the original book and it is fascinating. I look at it once a month and learn something new every time!
