Mathematics & Science » Astronomy
Taking us beyond the earthly limits of our home planet, astronomy helps us discover new horizons, in the Solar System and beyond.
We’ve interviewed Andrew Chaikin on space exploration, Stuart Clark on astronomers, and Marcus Chown on cosmology. If you’re more interested in the possibility of extraterrestrial life, have a look at our book selections on life below the surface of the Earth and life beyond Earth.
The most recommended books in our astronomy interviews are Bang! by Brian May, Patrick Moore, and Chris Lintott, Intelligent Life in the Universe by Carl Sagan and Iosif Shklovsky, and Lonely Hearts of the Cosmos by Dennis Overbye.
