Astronomy - A Beginner's Guide to the Universe (8th Ed)
by Eric Chaisson and Steve McMillan
Pearson | January 2017 | ISBN-10: 0134087704 | 596 Pages | PDF | 54.8 mb

With the Eighth Editionof Astronomy: A Beginner's Guide, trusted authors Eric Chaisson and Steve McMillan bring a renewed freshness and analysis to recent changes in our understanding of the cosmos. As with the other two books in their Astronomy suite (one for two-semester courses and the other, a brief visual book), the authors continue to emphasize three major themes: the process of science, the size and scale of the universe, and the evolution of the cosmos. This new edition ignites reader interest with new discoveries from the latest space missions and a new focus on reader-oriented engagement.
