KIRKUS REVIEW

A nearer look at outer space -- with a passing respectful nod at the solar system -- this gives informative material on the internal composition, orbital behavior and galactic roles of the stars; who discovered them, named them; on the space that lies between the stars; on the measurement of time and distance; on the perpetual flight of the galaxies from one another; on the origin, structure and state of the universe. The mathematics is virtually painless.
