In "100 Billion Suns," Rudolf Kippenhahn, whose research has contributed so much to our understanding of stellar evolution, has written an exciting and authoritative life history of the stars. How are stars formed, and how do they die? (Indeed, how much longer can we rely on the sun for our energy?) What are those mysterious radio pulses from space, accidentally discovered in 1967? What are X-ray stars? Is earth the only planet in the galaxy that supports intelligent life? These are but some of the intriguing questions that Professor Kippenhahn addresses in this engrossing book.
