An engaging romp through the Galaxy! Explore the stars, encounter the past and future, tour planets beyond the solar system, and prepare for new discoveries with four easy-to-follow itineraries through space and time! Written in a brisk yet accessible style and vividly illustrated, Vistas of Many Worlds is an original approach to learning about our place in the universe and contemplating the vast possibilities beyond the frontiers of knowledge. Narrated in the style of a "travel book," Vistas of Many Worlds presents up-to-date information that will appeal to both amateur astronomers and to general readers of popular science. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to gaze back at the Sun from Alpha Centauri? What did the starry skies of Africa look like to our hominid ancestors who roamed the Earth millions of years ago? How would planets orbiting other stars appear to us if we flew over them? Where might we discover other planets that truly resemble Earth and what would it be like to stand on the shores of their oceans? These spectacular scenes and many others await your exploration! Finder charts are also provided so that stars and constellations can be identified from the wide variety of spatial and temporal perspectives.
