Description:
Mapping the Universe: the Interactive History of Astronomy is the story of man's quest through the ages to unlock the secrets of our universe, understand where we come from and where we are going.

Lavishly illustrated throughout, it follows this journey for knowledge from the first musings of Stone Age people on the position of the stars and planets in the sky, to Galileo's first visions of Orion through a telescope, to our first steps on the moon, and right up to the photographs of our magnificent universe which are being sent back from the Plank telescope today.

Beautifully reproduced documents make it possible for the reader to experience hands-on, and appreciate at each stage, what over ten thousand years of history astronomers were discovering, and how and why this was significant.
